Five years after he and George made their original pitch, Jerry gets a call from NBC saying they want to go ahead with the original proposal. As a perk, they offer him the company jet to take him anywhere he likes and he, Elaine, George and Kramer are soon winging their way to Paris. They don't get very far when the plane has to make an emergency landing - thanks to Kramer's water-logged ear - and soon find themselves with a few hours to kill in a small town. When they see a fat man being car-jacked, they make fun of it but are soon arrested under a new Good Samaritan law for failing to help him. Written by garykmcd

Great finale to end the greatest show
20 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

It can be a very hard task to end a popular and big show, especially an iconic one like Seinfeld. A show that spans close to a decade and is a memorable part of many people's lives. I think the producers nailed it and gave a fitting sendoff to the beloved 4.

I have been a Seinfeld fan most of my life and watched every episode at least 5 times. So when they showed a finale to be all the bad acts and memorable guest actors come back to haunt them you could ask for no better way to end this iconic show. It was a fitting end to four characters who cared nothing much about other people and as Larry David said each episode showed no learning or growth. What a brilliant way to tie it all together by bringing the soup Nazi and Babu to put the nails in the coffin. These memorable guest stars in the trial paid great homage to the show's run over a decade and the brilliant story lines and their characters.

I heard a number of people were upset with the ending as they expected well I don't know what but it seemed the perfect ending for this show and followed its style. This is not a Soap opera, its the greatest and most unique comedy in history and if you're a true fan you would enjoy the trial of the century.
