As you all know, Jerry Seinfeld had his own comedy show for a number of years that is now in syndication and clogs up all the networks. I personally think the show sucks and I don't know how it's remotely funny. I mean Newmann is alright, but that's about it. Who agrees or disagrees?
Sadly only smart people find it to be funny. Hahaha the girl that also thinks it is not funny has me blocked as I tried to down vote her :P. All the people here that I dislike are stupid...that makes me happy inside
I freakin' love that show! Think what happens to them is hilarious...Kramer is a riot, Elaine can't dance to save her life, Jerry wears mom jeans, and George is a balding compulsive liar. What's not to love? haha
I like it.The show basically focused on the comedy in our daily lives,habits,customs,thoughts.It's pretty cool.Who doesn't like Kramer ? The guy is awesome.I also like "curb your enthusiasm" the writer of seinfeld stars in this one but it can be boring sometimes I have to say but still ,great show.The episode where a reporter thought seinfeld and george were gay and george wanted to prove her wrong "Do you want me to have sex with you right now,I'll have sex with you RIGHT NOW,come on !" hilarious :D
Seinfeld is pretty much a about selfish people and how they don't go by th rules society has imposed upon us. Its about doing what is best for us and forget what people may say. Jerry and George date different girls every episode, why? Because they are shallow individuals and its funny to ser people actually being as superficial as they can. Elaine is the same way, screening candidates before using a sponge. If you watch the final episode you can see all the people they have wrongred during the show's run and it finally bit them in the ass. I wish I could be that selfish and just look after myself and seeing them doing that is what makes it funny.
Also the humor is not just your regular sitcom humor, it is smart and if you love that kind of humor you just know and find yourself using it all the time and has become part of our every day vocabulary "double dip", "festivus", "serenity now", they are just too many to mention. I LOVE SEINFELD. If you don't get what makes it funny, then nobody can explain it to you and you are seriously missing out.
The 90's were just a different time. You probably think that Dick Van Dyke, I Love Lucy, Mary Tyler Moore, Mash, and other shows also suck because they're so tame and predictable by today's standards.
During its time, Seinfeld was one of the best things on tv. That either means that everything else was just plain awful, or Seinfeld simply doesn't stand the test of time very well. My vote is for the latter.
I've never "loved" the show, but it does have its moments.
All of the main characters are kind of unappealing -
Jerry and his ultra clean-cut comedy and Jewsian opulence
Elaine and her feminist-twat mentality
Kramer and his truly unfunny antics...
but George is exceptional. He is an everyman who is constantly shafted in life, and yet, he still perseveres. He is hands down the best main character on the show, and all of the other people he interacts with are pretty funny too (his parents, Steinbrenner, his boss, etc.).
