Storyline

In this episode, the predecessor to Seinfeld (1989), 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>

Hilarious, but
13 July 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As much as I found this pilot episode to be funny, some things made me ponder. For instance, why isn't Elaine here, why is Kramer named Kessler and why is this only 30 minutes long. Well- 1, Elaine didn;t show up until mid-first season, 2, Kramer came along in the first episode and 3, this is the pilot. Yes, this is the original Seinfeld pilot aired to see if the show would become a hit. Though very funny for a pilot, it didn't sky rocket the show to stardom immediately (the show was at first called dumb and not about anything). But eventually, the show got funnier until it became (to me) the funniest sitcom ever. Kudos Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David for creating such good characters. A+
