the best post Larry David episode
18 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

The plot lines and writing took a hit after Larry David left at the end of season 7. It was hit and miss, and mostly all misses in season 9. Season 8 did have a few gems though, and "Bizarro Jerry" stands as one of the best and most memorable Seinfeld episodes to date.

Jerry has a new girlfriend (The beautiful Kristin Bauer van Straten), with the small caveat she has enormous hands that he can't get past. The first scene in the restaurant really has some priceless expressions from Jerry and some of his best acting on the show.

Elaine's substitute friends are just creative genius. They are not over the top funny individually, but the originality of having similar replacements for Jerry, George, and Kramer was "gold" as Bania would say.
