A great episode
4 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I'm convinced. I'm completely convinced that Seinfeld can't make a single episode wrong. I've always liked this show unfortunately it nearly isn't ever on TV so I haven't seen many episodes. But this episode is one of the most memorable ones for me.

Why? Because the ideas behind this episode seem so random and weird yet those running gags throughout the episode, and the weird situation in which George is stuck under his table are just priceless.

So, like every Seinfeld episode, this episode was great and I don't have anything more to say about it. Just priceless and funny throughout the whole episode.

Recommended 10/10.
