Seinfeld is my favorite sitcom of all time, and my second favorite show after Curb Your Enthusiasm. It has such great characters and it's endlessly quotable. Also watching Michael Richards as Kramer never, ever fails to crack me up. The guy is a total method actor and has absolutely no sense of self-preservation when it comes to physical comedy. I mean, just watch this.

I also like that the Seinfeld DVD's got so much support and are just filled with extra material. I think Seinfeld outtakes are the funniest sitcom outtakes I've ever seen.

The Season 7 finale of CYE that had the Seinfeld "reunion show" was amazing as well, and really made me wish the show would come back.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the biggest offender when it comes to losing it during takes, but I honestly can't blame her. There are several episodes where you can tell she's been laughing or is struggling to keep it together.

I always loved this show just because of how Jerry and the gang straight up laughed in each other's faces when a personal tragedy/loss occurred. Its like there was zero compassion at all amongst the four of them. Glorious.

"That's a shame."

I recently watched "The Race" again and the scene in the cafe where George pretends not to have seen Jerry for 20 years is fantastic. All he's supposed to do is to lie about Jerry not cheating in the race but instead just starts lying his rear end off about how he's a millionare and an architect. Him belitteling Jerry's comedy act is also priceless, as is Jerry's comeback:

"Boy, you really went bald there."

Watching Jason Alexander lying or coming up with excuses as George is phenomenal.

"Art Core... velay."

George: "Shut your traps and stop kicking the seats! We're trying to watch the movie! And if I have to tell you again, we're gonna take it outside and I'm gonna show you what it's like!"

According to the "Inside Looks" on the Seinfeld DVD's, that's one of three Buddy Rich lines in the show, lifted from bootleg tapes of Rich's rants that Seinfeld and David are fans of. The other two are "This guy... this is not my kind of guy." from "The Understudy" and "Then we'll see how he does, up there, without all the assistance." from "The Butter Shave" I think.

The Sein dvds are by far the best television dvds ever. 2/3s of the episodes have short Inside Look interviews about their origins and experiences filming them with members of the cast including the writers and director too. It's particularly fascinating about how they did The Subway.

But yeah, there's the Notes About Nothing for EVERY episode. Buying the big black box set is SO worth it.

Also there's about 20-25 minutes of outtakes per season, and they're really funny. Excellent DVD's.

So ridiculous in the video store when Kramer is posing above the sign reading "comedy"

This made me gasp for air from laughing so hard the first time I saw it. Michael Richards never breaks character, even when he injures himself.

I don't mind the laugh tracks at all apart from one thing; at some point in season 5, they had to specifically instruct the audience not to go all apeshit when/if Kramer enters Jerry's apartment because it kept (understandably) throwing Richards off when the audience would cheer for a good 10-15 seconds while the cast were just standing there, waiting for a break so they could say their lines. In the earlier seasons it gets pretty annoying to watch.

There are so many opportunities in life to just casually say "that's a shame" as a response to any tragedy, big or small. Also it's best to be eating something while saying it.

Also the bit where Jerry first moves into the building at the end (beginning?) of the episode. They retcon why Kramer was called Kessler in the pilot, too.

I love 'The Muffin Tops' episode. First of all you have Kramer giving a reality tour (The last thing this guy is qualified to give a tour of is reality), then you have George being a tourist (No offense, but this city would eat you alive George), then you have Jerry shaving his chest (it's an old wives tale. Is it? IS IT REALLY?) and finally you have the titular muffin tops and the problems disposing the stumps.

It is just all woven together so loving well that I can't stop laughing during the entire episode. Anyone who says the last two seasons were the low seasons is just not right in the head.

I thought the Wolf parody at the end was funny.

The chicken roaster sign episode is one of my favorites. George with the hat, Elaine going to Burma, and especially Jerry and Kramer switching apartments. Jerry's Kramer impersonation is hilarious. The little hand gesture when Jerry goes "Oh, I'm stressed." kills me. And of course, "By Mennen!".

Also,

"Mr. Marbles?"

Great episode.

Oh well I guess I've just never actually heard someone pronounce it like that, so I just assumed that was another joke.

Like they picked the least likely name that was still somewhat plausible.
They actually had something else written for that episode (may have been Mulva, actually) but after filming it the audience didn't respond to it too well and they asked the audience for a name that would rhyme with a part of the female anatomy and someone in the audience shouted out "Delores". That's how that came about.

This is one of my favorite lines in the whole show.

Also, anyone find the clip of Jerry laughing while smoking a cigar and Elaine paying up on the bet that she'd stay broken up with Puddy? I love that scene, but I can't find it anywhere.
The only thing that's funnier than that scene are the outtakes where Julia Louis-Dreyfus can't keep it together when Jerry laughs.
