What Seinfeld is about
9 April 2016 | by juanmaffeoSee all my reviews

It may not be the funniest episode but it sure captures what The Show About Nothing is really about. And what it is really about is taking ordinary social situation and taking them to extremes only to show how ridiculous they are.

On this particular case, the gang is invited to a party and they decide to bring a cake and some wine. You can guess what happens throughout the episode. And it happens so smoothly you don't see it. Just as the episode begins to wrap up you realize how crazy and clever this one is. As I said, it's not filled with gags or memorable scenes, it's just a perfectly rounded episode with a much deeper point of view of how "the fabrics of society works".

Similar to other classic Seinfeld episodes, it proves that they can achieve great things with so little.
