"Don't know what to tell you, Elton"
27 September 2011 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Season 5, Episode 3, "The Glasses" In spite of not often being considered one of the classic Seinfeld episodes, "The Glasses" is a favorite of mine. Even in the standards of the brilliant fifth season the episode stands out for me.

Even if the overall writing of the episode isn't perfect, and the story doesn't make much sense, the episode has some of the funniest moments in the show's history: George squinting himself into eating an onion instead of an apple, Kramer threatening Dwayne with a packet of sugar, Elaine showing rabies symptoms - these are some of the cast's greatest acting moments. Also noteworthy is Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn as Jerry's girlfriend of the week.
