Did You Know?


Sandy Baron, who plays Jack Klompus, went missing during a rehearsal for this episode. After he arrived at the studios he became very ill while still in his car. He was eventually discovered by the show's production coordinator who ensured he received immediate medical treatment. While most scenes of the episode were filmed in December 1996, Baron's scenes were shot in January 1997, allowing him enough time to recover. Baron passed away in 2001 of emphysema. See more »

A Dull One
22 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

I can't remember the last time I was so uninterested by a Seinfeld Episode.

Being serious here, this has to be one of the most dull, boring and worst performed episodes in the entire series. The jokes aren't funny, the pace it's a turtle, there's no arc in any character's story. My God, even the audience isn't laughing that much. Having said that, it is a Seinfeld episode with Seinfeld characters. With that you will at least get the characters that you love and it will make the episode bearable.

When I think of this episode there just a blank space. The only thing that comes to mind is Sarah Silverman. Now, that's alright.
