Now who did not find Seinfeld funny? The phenomenal success of the show that made the actors millionaires many times over (can you imagine the royalty checks from the re-runs alone?) but is also responsible for the “Seinfeld curse” that Julia Louis Dreyfus finally managed to break with her sit-com The New adventures of Old Christine.
There were great debate over what is the best Seinfeld episode ever, there were many polls and surveys conducted as well, however I do have my personal favorites.
And more importantly what are your favorite Seinfeld episodes?
The episode where worldwide female audience were exposed to the term “shrinkage”. Gang leaves the city for a weekend in the Hamptons where George’s girlfriend sunbathes topless and George has an itsy bitsy problem after leaving the pool.
Elaine has a bit of a problem when she realizes her favorite contraceptive will no longer be available so she stock piles it. However soon she realizes she will have to devise a system to decide if her latest conquest is sponge worthy or not.
The Soup Nazi
Jerry and the gang will have to listen to the Soup Nazi or “No soup for you”.
Kramer, Elaine, George and Jerry decide to put have a contest with a bit of a twist to see who can be the master of his own domain the longest.
Featuring Mr. Constanza’s war cry of Serenity now, Insanity later when Mrs Constanza was getting on his nerves I have to say this was one of the episodes that makes me giggle to this day.
Jerry and Elaine visit Mr. and Mrs. Seinfeld in Florida. Jerry has a scuba accident, while Elaine needs to reach for painkillers after an uncomfortable night on the couch. My favorite because Elaine is doped up on painkillers she takes to imitating Marlon Brando and shouting “Steeeela”.
Another one of my favorites that sees George imposing a new tactic. George decides that in order to do something about his life he should go against every one of his instincts and do the opposite. On the other hand, Elaine turns into a female George while Jerry nicely evens things out by doing nothing.
The Marine Biologist
George lies that he is a marine biologist and accidentally manages to save a whale after his blowhole is obstructed by one of Kramer’s golf balls.
Yadda, Yadda, Yadda
George’s latest girlfriend has come up with a handy way to cover up all of her wrong doings, she simply abbreviates the nasty bits with yadda, yadda, yadda.
The Puffy Shirt
Kramer’s latest girlfriend who is a low talker gets Jerry to agree to wear one of her latest designs on the Today show. Unfortunately it is a puffy pirate shirt. George on the other hand finds a career in hand modeling.
