It disappoints me to see a review of this show which proclaims an
to understand its humor. Perhaps such a reviewer is simply slow, or
he/she has not taken the time to truly appreciate the unique and complex
storylines woven into each half hour of this program. Whatever the case,
this show is truly the funniest show of all time. Whether you like or
dislike the actors, each story is creative and daring. How can anyone
appreciate Jerry's perpetual phobia about germs and dirt? How can anyone
remain stoic when George begins one of his classic rants about ridiculous
problems -- particulary his parents? How can anyone even begin to argue
that Kramer's eccentricities are not truly the funniest ever seen on
non-animated television (a nod to The Simpsons, of course)? And Elaine's
dancing? Priceless. Puddy's personality? Hilarious. George's parents?
This show is re-run anywhere from 3 to 5 times each day in my area, and I can't get enough of it. Whether you've seen The Contest one time or one hundred times, it is ALWAYS funny.
I can appreciate that some people need more time to appreciate this show. It's too bad they don't give it the proper time before writing a negative review. All respect to Jerry and George -- yes, there is something wrong with that.
I did not catch this series when it first aired. My brother constantly
spoke its praises, but I believed it would be the usual boring weekly
I was wrong.
On my brother's recommendation, I taped every episode of the show when it ran in syndication on various channels. I have been slowly watching them during the Year 2002 (and now 2003), and after the first 40 or so episodes, I am here to tell you that this show is nothing short of amazing. The characters are interesting, the premise is, if not unique, at least enjoyable, and the subplots make you yearn for more. Just when you think it can't get any better, it does. It's difficult to believe that this show debuted in 1996. Not only has it stood the test of time, but it is better than most of the fare that has been aired in 2000 and beyond.
I am looking forward to the next 40 episodes and the TV Movies, which I hope will be equally engaging. I recommend that, if you haven't watched this program, start from the beginning and give it 6 episodes or so. You'll be hooked.
