"They're only comfortable with their equipment."
4 October 2011 | by itamarscomixSee all my reviews

Season 6, Episode 15, "Teh Beard" Not a great episode, but a good one. Number one main reason to see George wearing a toupee. Number two is Elaine, who's the real star of the episode and pulls some very good acting. TV mainstay Robert Mailhouse is excellent as her gay love interest.

The main weakness the episode half is lack of material; nothing very interesting happens to Kramer or Jerry, in fact Jerry's storyline is one of the silliest in the show's run. But Elaine and George are both terrific and they make the episode work, even if it's not one of the best of season 6.
