How are there AD and ST:TNG megathreads but no Seinfeld thread? gently caress that poo poo.

If you've never seen Seinfeld I don't know what the gently caress but here's some Wikipedia stuff:

quote:

Seinfeld is an US television sitcom that originally aired on NBC from July 5, 1989, to May 14, 1998, lasting nine seasons, and is now in syndication. The eponymous series was created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, with the latter starring as a fictionalized version of himself. Set predominantly in an apartment block on Manhattan's Upper West Side (but shot mainly in Los Angeles), the show features a host of Jerry's friends and acquaintances, including George Costanza, Elaine Benes and Cosmo Kramer.


And some sample Youtubes.

If you have time please watch all the Seinfeld Extras short pieces on Youtube, they are from the DVD box sets and they are full of great behind the scenes stuff. Ok post quotes and discuss.

People with no critical credentials whatsoever love saying this because it's populist and fronts a false aura of superiority while knowing they'll never be asked to qualitatively justify their reasoning. THere are no bad seasons of Seinfeld, and as a crazy fan who knows entire chunks of episodes by rote in dialogue and on-screen antics, several of my favortie episodes are in the final season (The Slicer, The Strike, The Frogger, The Dealership, The Merv Griffin Show).

You've probably seen it but everyone else search for Seinfeld Submarine Captain on youtube, it's a 3 part behind the scenes thing where all the writers/directors/producers talk about Jerry and they talk about Larry leaving and seasons 8 & 9 and it's awesome.

As a completely mental fan I have to admit some slight disappointment in the finale AT THE TIME but it has grown on me since and I feel like I get why that had to be the way it ended.

My two favorite Episodes are by far The Pen and The Cheever Letters. Both of those episodes put the cast into a world that's so completely insane they make them look normal. In both stories the people involved are in worlds so isolated they don't even realize that the way they act is abnormal. Which is what Larry David's point was in the finale anyway, except this time about the main characters.


"When you come in the house, you wipe your wheels!!"

Kills me, every time.

I loving love how Jerry and George slowly back out of the room there, Jerry points to his watch and George is just talking nonsense, "Yes time is what he's indicating there" it kills me every time I watch it.

Anyone have the clip where Kramer's car fails to start at the end of the episode where they get lost in that parking lot? I understand that that scene was completely improved, since the car really did fail to start. You can see everyone visibly lose their poo poo when Kramer gets out of the car.

That's one of the best DVD extras. The entire shoot was really hard, they had to build the parking lot set from scratch, it was after midnight, etc. Just watch.

Did Seinfeld invent the term "double dipping" a chip? It's the first place I ever heard it. that show was really a modern day Shakespeare with all the little contributions to language it made.

Seinfeld added so much to the pop culture vernacular. People would add poo poo to their vocabulary the day after the show aired, it was true water cooler tv.

I think this is a show that myself and about a dozen of my friends grew up watching, and watch 10 seconds of an episode and instantly recognize which episode it is, and spew out numerous quotes from that episode. It was pretty much THE show to watch, it was on all the time, and it never got old seeing repeat episodes. I admit I am one of the people who bought the coffee table book series collection as soon as it came out, and don't regret it one bit. And yes, it does sit on my table and I regularly flip through it.

One time I was riding in an elevator and a girl came in. Of course I had to say that I was the guy who made those crop circles in England. She had no idea what I was talking about and got off like three floors later. I did not get her number.

Another time I asked a girl at a Starbucks I had gone into a lot (just to see her) if she dated immature men. She said no.

Seinfeld lines do not work in real life, at least they haven't so far.

The best thing about Newman and Puddy is that they never originally intended for or wrote these characters to be so funny, it's just that as soon as Wayne Knight and Patrick Warburton auditioned for them Jerry & Larry knew it was perfect and they just went with it

I bought the complete series about a month ago and have been going through it with the Notes About Nothing on since I've seen every episode at least a hundred times when it was on and in syndication. The amount of effort they put into the trivia track is amazing. You also learn a lot of useless trivia about nothing from it as well (like verbose details on the origin of cereal and a TRAGIC play by play of Game Six )!

I still can't get over how dark The Opera is. Elaine almost gets raped/murdered but saved by binaca. The awkward laughter from the studio audience only makes it more dark. Larry Charles really has a sick mind and his episodes really stick out. Infact I think I've never seen that particular ep in syndication, ever.

My favourite line exchange is still "I'm allergic to coconut. / I'm not. / A nickle!"

haha The Opera was on last night and I was thinking the exact same thing. Crazy Joe Davola wasn't that funny, he was loving scary.

They had to stop the audience from going nuts when Kramer makes his appearance because it was distracting. Listen for it, it happens in earlier seasons but then disappears in later ones.

Is that the one where Puddy is just going to stare at the seat in front of him the whole time and it really bugs Elaine?

Yes, and it's on the blooper reel because Patrick Warburton's face is just so loving funny when he puts it on like that. Reminder that Puddy was never cast to behave like that, Larry & Jerry saw him make that face before the cameras rolled and they pissed themselves laughing. The show was special because of things like that, it was blessed by the tv gods. Jerry Stiller and Wayne Knight are the other major examples of this.

As soon as Elaine tells him not to buy Piccino's pizza because the dude contributes to anti-abortion groups you see the light go on and Jerry proceeds to troll his own dinner by provoking Elaine to cause a scene with Poppie and then ends her relationship with a perfect guy.
