next to still game this was my fave comedy ever. it just kept getting better which wasn't true of other shows like freinds which sturned into a soap.

i loved that there was no moral message in it, and the characters wouldn't loose all the time. it ended on a high too which was a suprise after so long.

fave epsisode, the one with the frogger machine.

fave line, no soup for you, next

fave character, geroges dad

fave holiday, festivus

fave georges job, the one where he pretends to be disabled

just a great show, like the gf dying, they didn't make it sad, just funny! if it had been another show it would have had sad music.

great stuff.

Never really watched Seinfeld, but enjoyed the episodes I have watched... Kramer was a great character...

I am a fan of Frasier...

I didnt know until 1998 that the stars of Frasier did the voices of Sideshow Bob and his brother in The Simpsons! Very good they were as well...
Some advertising campaigns are very long indeed...

I think it's always the case of recognising the characters. I got into Everyone Loves Raymond and King Of Queens a couple of years ago, but it got a bit samey and based a lot of stories on morals (zz boring). I hate American imports (there's too many!!!!). I also liked Coach when it was on, purely because there was nothing else on at that time.

Seinfeld was one the greats. Right up there with Night Court :)
I can't help but wonder if Michael Richards' career will ever recover.

I'm a fan too. I got into when a Sky channel started showing it every night. It was one of the last things I saw before I gave up on broadcast TV back in the 90s. I taped a lot of it but I'd have to do some digging to find it. Besides, I'm close to throwing out my taped off TV tapes for space. When Sky were showing it, it ended on the episode when the Jerry sitcom pilot shows. Ironically, it then looped around to S1E1, the pilot in other words.

I dare say that I'll start treating myself to the boxsets one day.

Too many happy memories of this show, which I got into when working in Bermuda for 2 years (sorry but I did). Fans will recognise all of the following and hopefully have a little laugh:

- The soup nazi
- Master of your domain
- Hello Newman
- Festivus
- The manssiere
- I dont want to be a pirate
- Chinese food
- His own personal playground
- The summer of George

I love it so much I put a newman GIF on all my posts. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I'm also a huge seinfeld fan. So many memorable and very funny characters, great lines and far-from immediately funny situations. I love Kramer, but George is still the funniest.

I wonder why there is no Seinfeld SNES game. The early 90s were the exact right time for these kind of games (-> Home Improvement).

I'm looking forward to the reunion of the cast members on the upcoming episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
