"Brother Costanza will take the vow of silence."
27 September 2011 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Season 5, Episode 11, "The Conversion" "The Conversion" isn't one of the strongest or most consistent episodes in Seinfeld's fifth season, but it is one of the funniest. George's and Kramer's story lines don't make an ounce of sense, but they're so funny that you just can't resist. Michael Richards and Jason Alexander both deliver side-splittingly hilarious performances.

Jerry and Elaine are far less impressive, their stories interact but not in a very interesting way, and they feel more like season 2 material. That stops the episode short of being truly hilarious all the way, but it still has its share of classic moments.
