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

Goofs

While Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer are witnessing the robbery of the Massachusettian, the reflection of the police officer is visible in the store window just over Kramer's left shoulder. The officer is waiting for his cue to join the scene but has inadvertently already made his appearance; had his visibility been intentional, he too would have been guilty of breaking the Good Samaritan Law because he was idly watching the robbery.

A disappointing end.
16 December 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

It had the same great humor, it revisits the characters which made the show great and it adds a final quirky situation to the already impressive catalogue of everyday-life spoofs, but in my opinion, it fails as a finale, I was left wanting more.

I think it's a real shame that the epic series had to be ended on this extremely mediocre note. It added a disappointing sense of finality, the kind of thing that can ruin good memories from a fun show.

Seinfeld was interviewed saying that the idea of filming one more episode was toyed with, if only this was the case!

----------- 6/10
