Festivus for the rest of us.
25 February 2007 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

With: Jerry Stiller and Estelle Harris.

This episode is a really well remembered episode for the Frank Costanza sub-plot, and for good reason. The plots of this episode are really funny. Jerry is dating a woman who looks good one moment and hideous the next, Kramer is back working at a pretzel shop after a 12 year strike, Elaine's using fake phone numbers causes her to have problems getting a free sandwich, George's Christmas presents at work are donations to a fake foundation and Frank Costanza gets ready to celebrate his own holiday, Festivus. Every plot, except the Elaine one, are really clever and funny. This episode is mainly remembered and quoted for the Festivus plot, and it's good Jerry Stiller got a remembered phrase for his work on Seinfeld. It's a very funny episode.

My rating: Great episode. TV PGD
