WIDELY REGARDED AS ONE OF THE GREATEST comedy series ever, Seinfeld
was created by Jerry Seinfeld (who plays a character of the same name
or maybe himself!) and Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm). The series
has won a multitude of Golden Globe and Emmy Awards, including Best Comedy Series.
Dubbed "the show about nothing" Seinfeld is renowned for its take on
the ordinary events of life. Cleverly putting together a series of ironic plots,
whacky characters and drawing upon life experiences, the show has laughed its
way into the hearts of an enormous American and UK audience from the premiere
on NBC in 1990 through its many repeats. Seinfeld is Directed by Andy
Ackerman and Jerry Seinfeld is an Executive Producer.
Jerry is a stand-up comedian who has achieved minor celebrity and has had a
succession of short-term girlfriends. His childhood best friend George Castanza
(Jason Alexander) maybe best described as one of life's losers
doesn't seem to be able to hold down either a job or a girlfriend. Jerry's former
girlfriend Elaine Marie Benes (a very watchable Julia Louis-Dreyfus) adds the
female perspective with her own share of problems and their friend Kramer (the
unstoppable Michael Richards) completes the four main characters.
Irreverent and non-PC, Seinfeld seeks humour where others fear to tread.
Jerry's line that 95 per cent of the population is un-dateable prompts Elaine
to ask how all these people are getting together. Jerry's simply reply? Alcohol.
One of the jokes that rather took us by surprise was: "Father, I feel that my
friend has converted purely because of the jokes." "Does it offend you as a
Jew?" asks the priest. "No," comes the answer from Jerry. "It offends me as
The episode where Jerry hires a maid is particularly funny. When he begins to
date Cindy (Angela Featherstone), he gets more than he bargained for. In the
same episode Elaine faces problems over a fax machine and loses a date because
she has the wrong area code. There is a brilliant piece of dialogue with the
telephone man (Sam Whipple) when Elain protests that she doesn't want her area
code altered and tells him: "…not a new number, just changed." He counters with:
"Don't try to lure me into some maze of circular logic."
A confrontation with the driver of a maroon Golf ends up with Elaine leading
a group of people including a pregnant, unmarried woman and a priest
on a melodramatic and hilarious adventure under seating stages to try
to get to the other side of the road when it is closed for a South American
With such one-liners as: "She just dislikes me so much… it's irresist-ible!"
and a scene that gives new meaning to the word "power shower", Seinfeld
is cliff-climbing, chicken-walking, fire-raising… fun-loving, finger-lickin'
You might say that Jerry & Co get their just desserts when they laugh at and
film a man having his car stolen and wind up getting arrested for breaking a
little-known law that requires you to help or assist anyone in danger, as long
as it's reasonable to do so. But their partial accep-tance of their fate can
be explained away by their ability to see fun in every situation: Jerry
(to Dentist): "Do you think you should be making jokes like that?" Dentist:
"Jerry, it's our sense of humour that has sus-tained us as a people for three
thousand years." Jerry: "Five thous-and." Dentist: "Even better."
