Kramer is pursuing his lawsuit against a coffee shop for selling him coffee that was too hot. Jackie Chiles represents him and thinks they're going to make a fortune. He may have a problem when Elaine's new boyfriend gives him a salve that cleans up his burn mark overnight. The boyfriend, who conducts the police band, insists that everyone call him Maestro which is just a bit too pretentious. George meanwhile goes shopping with Susan at a store owned by her family. He's not too keen on the clothes she thinks he should wear and he is bothered by the fact that the security guard has to stand all day. Written by garykmcd

"Nor should you"
8 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Another great episode from Season 7 although this feels more like a filler. Geroge's arc doesn't get much development but it is a strong episode in itself.

On this episode we get two brand new supporting characters and two of the best. Jackie Chiles and The Maestro. Jackie gets on board with a full fleshed out personality and gives pieces of dialogue that are comedic gold. The Maestro, on the other hand, has to be one of the most original characters on the show. A guy who conducts the Policemen Benevolent Association Orchestra a wants to be called Maestro no matter the situation? Genius!

Kramer's café latte incident (that began on the previous episode) gets a somewhat dumb resolution. So that's a little disappointing. On parallel we get the story about George's concerns about the well being of the security guard in Susan's uncle shop. This is the kind of weird approach I think works because it is definitely absurd but you could see George doing it. However, what I do think is weird and doesn't work is Jerry's problem with the availability in Tuscany. It's too neurotic for him and by the end of the episode it reaches a level of disbelief that ruins it.

An entertaining filler, nothing more, nothing less.
