Susan Biddle Ross: I can't believe that they're using it.
George Costanza: Well, now it's not gonna be original! It's going to lose all its cachet!

"So this is the Fortress of Solitude"
29 August 2016 | by juanmaffeoSee all my reviews

A somewhat uneven episode, it is enjoyable in itself but it lacks the creativity and craft of The Rye or The Caddy.

Three story lines. Elaine and Kramer's bike situation, George and his baby names and Jerry and his one-dress girl. Out of the three, Jerry's is the best. It actually has one of the best ideas of the entire series: a person who always uses the same clothe! That's gold, Jerry! Gold! It is incredibly relatable and the way they handled it only makes it funnier. Unfortunately the other two stories aren't quite on the same level of quality.

George's story kind of comes and goes. Sometimes it's really funny, sometimes it's really annoying, but above all, is borderline ridiculous. Jerry's story is handled in a wacky way, but it is a relatable situation, but George's isn't. I don't know, it doesn't seem like a funny idea. And Elaine and Kramer bike issue is only funny with Newman. Here he reaffirms he is the best supporting character of the series and whenever he is on screen the story gets more interesting.

Overall, a sometimes funny, sometimes hilarious, sometimes dull episode.
