Great interweaving of story lines
25 January 2007 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

The best episodes of this program are the ones where they have several different story lines that are interconnected. This is one of the best in that regard: The travels of the cigar store Indian itself, the travels of Frank Costanza's TV guide, Jerry's attempts to go out with Elaine's Native American friend, George's seduction of the woman from the furniture store (kasha?), Kramer's coffee table book, and the Queensboro Plaza gyros. Several of the minor characters, most notably the TV Guide fanatic -- one of the best guest characters ever, are very funny. I think I've seen every episode of Seinfeld, most many times, and this one is near the very top of the list.
