Storyline

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. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Trivia

The Pilot episode, Seinfeld: Good News, Bad News (1989), is also known as "The Seinfeld Chronicles". NBC requested that the show's title be shortened to simply 'Seinfeld' This was done to avoid confusing it with another 1990 sitcom called: The Marshall Chronicles (1990) on ABC. That show was described as Woody Allen meets The Wonder Years (1988). It lasted 6 shows. The renamed 'Seinfeld' lasted 9 years. See more »

Goofs

In two episodes, the makeup Michael Richards is wearing comes off on another surface. In "The Pick" when he falls against the wall in Calvin Klein's office there is an obvious dark mark left on the wall. In "The Butter Shave" the makeup is clearly seen on the stick on butter after he smears it on his face. See more »

Quotes

George Costanza: [talking about Eldridge's ordeal on the Andrea Doria] Even if he did suffer, that was 40 years ago. What has he done for me lately? I have been suffering for the last 30 years, up to and including yesterday!

I Absolutely Love It.
25 July 2003 | by shrek2004See all my reviews

This show was totally unique. Nothing has been done like it before, or since (with the possible exception of the Simpsons, which does mimic some of the "nothing" plots a little). While it was about nothing, it was really about everything--but the little things that no one thinks about, like giving your bank code to your fiancé. I also liked how this show was the last of the "non-fashion" shows.

You always saw Kramer wear the same ridiculous jacket, pants, and shirt. George always had those too-small plaid shirts and even Jerry had the black-and-gray striped shirt we saw him wear in the one where he and George make "The Pact". Even Elaine had many of the same clothes, even after her "make-over". I mean, I LOVE the show Friends but every time the guys have a new turtleneck or sweater, and the girls always have a new dress or a new pair of pants, which is totally unrealistic (for the guys anyway).

This show had consistent humour all the way up to the last season, which is unusual for many shows. I LOVED George styling his hair to look like the bald guy from NYPD Blue, Elaine buying the JuJubes on the way to the hospital, Uncle Leo yelling "STOP THE SHOW" on the PBS special--these were just some of the great moments! This show is the best on televison, and if you haven't seen it, go and watch now!
