One of the best.
12 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Plot of the episode: Kramer gets ticked off when he gets too much junk mail, so he revolts against the post offices. Jerry runs into his old friend "Fragile Frankie Mourman", who gets very upset easily. He tries to sell Jerry a van, but Jerry doesn't really like it. George's parents don't want to speak to George much because they want to spice up their life. Elaine dumps Puddy for a guy who charms everyone by looking at his face. But he isn't that special, he is The wiz, who is a electronic salesmen.

The Junk mail is perhaps my favorite episode of Seinfeld ever. It is so hard to choose which is the best because they are all so f*cking funny. Every single episode. is funny. The Junk mail has so many funny moments in it and so much happens in it. Seinfeld is the greatest show ever, and the final season is fantastic. Every episode is. But The Junk mail is one of my favorites.
