The continuing misadventures of neurotic New York City stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld and his equally neurotic New York City friends.
For the majority of the series, Jerry's (Jerry Seinfeld) apartment number is 5A (and is shown at least once as 3A). This apartment number is indicated in black letters and numbers on the apartment door. However, in episode 1.3, Seinfeld: Male Unbonding (1990), Jerry's apartment number is 411, indicated in gold-colored metal numbers next to the door. Something else, also gold-colored metal, is mounted on Jerry's door instead.
Elaine, you always care when an ex-girlfriend dates. You don't want it to be someone you know and you don't want it to be someone better than you. While the latter is obviously impossible, the former still applies.
In episode 2.12, Seinfeld: The Busboy (1991), George (Jason Alexander) complains about eating yet another plate of Pesto. Originally, that particular food was supposed to be Elaine's (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) "sworn enemy."
The series does not have an opening credits sequence. Instead, the lead actor credits play out over a scene. Now commonplace in sitcoms and drama series, this was considered a novelty in 1990 and sparked a debate over the future of opening credits in TV series.
In the episode "The Summer Of George" some scenes were edited for TV screening but were aired in full in foreign countries during reruns. Extra footage included more dialogue between George and a shop assistant with regard to party invitations, Jerry and his girlfriend discussing who would look after her shopping the coffee shop and a couple more lines between George and Jerry near the end of the episode as George lies in a hospital bed.
