Storyline

Five years after he and George made their original pitch, Jerry gets a call from NBC saying they want to go ahead with the original proposal. As a perk, they offer him the company jet to take him anywhere he likes and he, Elaine, George and Kramer are soon winging their way to Paris. They don't get very far when the plane has to make an emergency landing - thanks to Kramer's water-logged ear - and soon find themselves with a few hours to kill in a small town. When they see a fat man being car-jacked, they make fun of it but are soon arrested under a new Good Samaritan law for failing to help him. Written by garykmcd

Brilliant way to end the greatest show ever
21 March 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I should mention first that I was very nervous to see this episode, not because I was afraid of my favorite show coming to an end, but because everyone I've spoken to says "The Finale" is awful. I couldn't disagree more. This episode brought back just about every minor (and major) character from all the seasons, and the fact that you just remember exactly who each character is proves how great this show really was. Every time a new character appears, you know immediately who they are and what they're there for, which is really magical. I understand the ending wasn't "good" for the main characters, but that doesn't really matter, at least for me. What I found brilliant about this episode, considering the fact that it was the final episode, was that it seemed to seal off the show really well. What I mean by that is that in most TV series, you're often sad when a show is finished, you find yourself desperate for more, and that leaves a bad feeling associated with the show. This finale, however, didn't leave that bad feeling at all, in a really weird way it removed that desperate feeling of wanting more, it actually left me satisfied with the show being over! Some people criticized this episode because the main characters didn't get much attention. Fair enough, but the returning of the minor characters brought back so many memories from past episodes, which I thought was a decent trade off. However, maybe a little more focus on the main characters would have been nice. All in all, this episode was great. Don't be afraid to watch it like me, I think this was a much-needed episode for Seinfeld fans, and a fantastic way to end a fantastic show.
