What am I going to make sarcastic remarks to strangers? February 24, 2009

The Chinese Restaurant is an absolute classic of Seinfeld’s early seasons along with the carpark episode which we will get to in a little bit. I just adore the idea of an entire episode devoted to waiting. According to the background Inside Look on the DVD NBC were far less enamoured and held the episode […]

“Pipe down chorus boy”: Seinfeld Series 2: The Jacket February 12, 2009

"It’s been a week, it’s up to the cat now": Seinfeld Series 2, Episode 3 November 30, 2008

The Busboy is another of my early Seinfeld favourites, giving us the opportunity to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s capacity for physical comedy, and the developing the awkward relationship between Kramer and George. Food is one of the recurring themes in this episode, with Jerry’s first stand up deriding contemporary culture’s obsession with food and foodie culture. […]
