The Mansserie
27 February 2018 | by Samuel-ShovelSee all my reviews

In "The Doorman", Jerry unintentionally gets into a feud with Mr. Pitt's doorman, culminating with the lobby's couch being stolen and Jerry taking the blame. George's parents separate and Frank comes to stay with him. George tries to figure out how to get rid of him. Kramer & Frank come up with an idea to sell male bras and George begins to worry that male breasts might be hereditary.

Another classic episode, the mansserie is a Seinfeld reference that has transcended the show's airtime. I always love it when Kramer tries to get some type of entrepreneurial business going. I am not as big of fan of the doorman subplot but I have to admit that Larry Miller is perfect for the role.
