"Double exclamation mark!"
27 September 2011 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Season 5, Episode 4, "The Sniffing Accountant" "The Sniffing Accountant" is one of the weaker episodes in season 5 of Seinfeld, though it's still a classic like any other episode in this fantastic season. The main storyline doesn't make a whole lot of sense - it's only Newman's presence that makes it funny, along with one unforgettable scene from Kramer.

The other stories are of more interest - the episode is noteworthy for marking the first appearance o Marty Rackham as Jake Jarmel, one of the few guys who could actually stand up to Elaine, and this is one of the first occasions in which she shows she's just as insane as the other three; and Frank Costanza trying to teach his son about bras is priceless and a classic scene. Enough to make the episode funny in repeated viewings.
