Storyline

After Kramer rescues the set of the old Merv Griffin show from a dumpster, he sets it up in his apartment where he interviews anyone who happened to drop by. George's new girlfriend gives him a hard time after he strikes a pigeon with his car. When he hits a squirrel she insists that he take it to the vet and then care for it at home. A new guy at the office is driving Elaine crazy. Jerry has a new girlfriend who inherited a fabulous collection of classic toys from her late father. She won't let Jerry touch them - let alone play with them - but he soon finds a way around that. Written by garykmcd

Merv Griffin arc of show is ultimate in surreality and insanity!!!
6 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most hilarious and genius of any sitcom episode in the history of television, as well as, without a doubt, the most surreal!!! The idea of Kramer being so delusional that, by getting the remains of the set of the Merv Griffin show, and putting them in his apartment, and then believing he is actually hosting the Nerv Griffin show is out of the world- beautifully insane!!! Anyone who can't find the humor of this episode, (even if the don't like the show the way I do, or even if they now can't stand Richards),probably is humorless. And of course, I'm talking about the Merv Griffin arc of this episode. The rest of the show was good, and I think I loved every Seinfeld episode, but this is the ultimate of surreality and complete comedic insanity and I mean that is a good way- Way to go writers and actors!!!
