"There's a void"
16 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Old Man starts off good, then hits rock bottom by the second act but redeems itself in the third.

The second act consists of Jerry, George and Elaine getting to know their respective old people and none of these stories rings funny, at least the first time they meet. Jerry's story with his old man gets better as it gets mixed with Kramer and Newman's story line and Elaine's story gets actually really funny.

On a side note I love that they made a real picture for the Gandhi detail, it just shows the effort they put on the show. Also, this must be one of the few episodes that shows not a single hint of continuity. I could be anywhere on the list.
