Officer Kramer
23 January 2008 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

In the first season of Seinfeld, the brilliant Kramer (Michael Richards), albeit very funny, was not really allowed to show exactly what he was capable of. Things changed during the show's second year, and The Statue features one of Kramer's absolute best moments.

Story-wise, it's once again ridiculously simple (and, for the first time, a little ridiculous too, though in a good way): George notices a statue in Jerry's apartment and asks if he can have it, since it looks like one that belonged to his parents and that he accidentally broke. A fight ensues with Kramer over who should get the statue, which is stolen a few days later. The only person who could have done it is Ray, the guy who cleaned up Jerry's place (and did a remarkable job), and unfortunately accusing him could cost Elaine her latest job since she's working with Ray's girlfriend Rava.

This episode is great for a lot of reasons: it marks the first time George's parents are mentioned, and what we hear is a delightful preparation for Season Four, in which they make their proper debuts; it has a wonderful guest character in Rava, whose best moment is when she delivers the line "There's Ray, late as usual" with what is supposed to be a Finnish accent (being Finnish myself, I've heard better); but most of all it contains one of Kramer's comic triumphs - TV's favorite "hipster doofus" (as he is defined in later seasons) posing as a detective and searching through Ray's apartment while yelling insults at the poor fella ("Make love to the wall, pervert!"). It's original, it's daring (for the year it was made, that is) and it's so funny no other sitcom has ever thought of mimicking it. A classic scene.
