Storyline

After George suggests she could have done better, Beth decides to leave her husband David. While George obsesses over whether he was the cause of the break-up, Elaine and Jerry swoop in, much to their delight, and offer the distraught couple a shoulder to cry on. When George tries to make amends, Elaine and Jerry want him to stop. It all gives George an idea on how to end his own relationship with Susan. Kramer meanwhile wears a particularly tight pair of blue jeans which he can't now get off. Written by garykmcd

Very good
24 July 2009 | by (Scotland, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While not the best Seinfeld episode, this is still an enjoyable little romp.

George makes a remark to a couple who are having a rough time. The couple then break-up and George is left feeling guilty. Meanwhile, Jerry and Elaine try to get dates with the new singletons. Watching Jerry and Elaine co-ordinate their moves raises a smile.

The episode isn't remarkably funny, but still engaging. The funny parts come from Kramer and his tight jeans - brilliant! The Frankenstein bit had me chuckling!

All in all, worth a watch. 7/10
