Jerry Seinfeld stars in this television comedy series as himself, a comedian. The premise of this sitcom is Jerry and his friends going through everyday life, discussing various quirky situations, to which we can all relate (especially if we live in New York City). The eccentric personalities of the offbeat characters who make up Jerry's social circle contribute to the fun.

In the episode, "Bookstore, The" (ep. #9.17), J. Peterman describes provides several euphemisms for the drug opium when he's describing Elaine's boyfriend's addiction. In the original airing, he referred to it as "smack...white palace...the Chinaman's nightcap". In all syndicated airings, the last part of that line was omitted, obviously because of its racial insensitivity. See more
