"You think you're better than me, don't you?"
4 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

Season 6, Episode 17, "The Doorman"

An interesting thought that just occurred to me: for a while there, Jerry replaced George as the show's Larry David stand-in. In this episode and in "The Kiss Hello" he gets himself into situations that would have felt right at home on a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode.

"The Doorman is another classic 6th season episode, fueled mainly by two supporting actors: Jerry Stiller is as great as ever as Frank Constanza, and stand-up comic Larry Williams is hilarious and menacing as the titular doorman. The four leads almost seem to play second fiddle to those two, but Jerry and Kramer both have their moments to shine. It's an excellent and irregular episode that fits right into the sixth season.
