All the stuff in Bonnie's apartment belonged to Scott and yet it was her apartment. Why it would be her apartment when all the stuff belongs to Him? Obviously it was her apartment first and yet she owned nothing all the time she lived there before Scott moved in. Logically it should have been Scott's apartment. See more »

"He's a re-gifter!"
4 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

Season 6, Episode 12, "The Label Maker"

Three strikes in a row!

The boys managed to follow "The Race" and "The Switch", two of Seinfeld's most iconic episodes, with one that, while it's not as tight, it deals with familiar and realistic social issues like only Seinfeld can, much like they did throughout seasons 4 and 5.

The fantastic Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), who made his first appearance as dentist Tim Whatley in the episode "The Mom and Pop Store", makes a glorious return, and finally lays the framework to how his character would eventually end up. George is hilarious, Jerry and Elaine deliver, and Kramer delivers some of his most hilarious scenes with Newman - scenes that have very little impact on the story, but are unforgettable nevertheless.
