I Absolutely Love It.
This show was totally unique. Nothing has been done like it before, or since (with the possible exception of the Simpsons, which does mimic some of the "nothing" plots a little). While it was about nothing, it was really about everything--but the little things that no one thinks about, like giving your bank code to your fiancé. I also liked how this show was the last of the "non-fashion" shows.

You always saw Kramer wear the same ridiculous jacket, pants, and shirt. George always had those too-small plaid shirts and even Jerry had the black-and-gray striped shirt we saw him wear in the one where he and George make "The Pact". Even Elaine had many of the same clothes, even after her "make-over". I mean, I LOVE the show Friends but every time the guys have a new turtleneck or sweater, and the girls always have a new dress or a new pair of pants, which is totally unrealistic (for the guys anyway).

This show had consistent humour all the way up to the last season, which is unusual for many shows. I LOVED George styling his hair to look like the bald guy from NYPD Blue, Elaine buying the JuJubes on the way to the hospital, Uncle Leo yelling "STOP THE SHOW" on the PBS special--these were just some of the great moments! This show is the best on televison, and if you haven't seen it, go and watch now!

Trivia

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.


Quotes

Jerry: 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.


Goofs

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."


Crazy Credits

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.


Alternate Versions

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.
