Storyline

In this episode, the predecessor to "Seinfeld" (1990), Jerry is expecting a woman that he met in Michigan to come and visit him in New York. Throughout the first part of the show Jerry and George are discussing the situation. Later we meet "Kessler" who comes in to Jerry's apartment to borrow some meat and uncharacteristically knocks on the door before entering. Written by Seinfeld Fan <onlyjoex@earthlink.net>

Surprisingly Good
15 November 2003 | by (Bloomington, IN) – See all my reviews

Like the final episode, the pilot is actually pretty good, when you consider the circumstances. No Elaine, Kramer is Kessler and he knocks when entering a room, and George has a steady job and confidence. All that said, some quality moments, like when Kessler pulls to pieces of bread out of his robe pockets in Jerry's apartment and says to him "Got any meat?" Funny stuff.
