Storyline

Frank sets up a new business selling computers and hires George and Lloyd Braun (seen in "The Non Fat Yogurt" and "The Gum") to compete against each other in a sales contest. But Frank's relaxation technique drives everybody completely nuts. Jerry's new girlfriend encourages him to let his emotions out. Kramer takes Frank's screen door and puts it up in his apartment, creating "Anytown, USA", but the local kids make relaxation difficult. Elaine discovers her "shiksa appeal" and suddenly every Jewish man in New York, including her former boss, is attracted to her. Written by halo1k

One of the few episodes I really didn't like
26 January 2007 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

I don't know what it is about this episode, but I just didn't like it very well. It was one of the super silly episodes that has really unrealistic plot lines. This episode deals with Frank Costanza hiring George and Lloyd Braun to sell computers out of his house. Elaine is kissed by Mr. Lippman's son at his bar-mitzvah, and Elaine finds out she has a Shix appeal to Jewish men when Mr. Lippman also kisses her and when the loudmouth Rabbi tries to set her up with a friend. Kramer installs a screen door and gets in a fight with some kids. And Jerry tries to be mean when his girlfriend says he can't do it, and he finds that after yelling nonstop, his emotional side comes out. It's a really stupid episode, that I might have enjoyed if these four plots were subplots in other episodes, but having four stupid subplots together just didn't work for this one. And the reason the episode is called the Serenity Now is because Frank's doctor said just to yell Serenity Now! whenever he was frustrated.

My rating: Mediocre episode. 30 mins. TV PG
