    Never was a big fan. However if I watch individual skits on YouTube they are hysterical.

    Yup. It's relative to it's time period.

    Watching Star Trek Next Gen is the same way.

    One of the worst - but most correct - finale’s in tv history . All the Larry David years episodes are worth watching.

    Then he left and...

    I also love Curb. Any season. Leon, Funkhauser (RIP), Palestinian Chicken - the whole deal.


    When this whole thing started , I started bingeing Cheers from episode 1 onward.

    For me ? It really holds up . Ted Danson is a genius comedic actor and Shelley Long is fantastic.

    Ted Danson's (and Martin Short's, and Glen Close's) best work was in Damages. Non-comedic and shows their dark acting abilities. Almost as good as Robin Williams was at this.

    They are awful people: selfish, uncaring, conniving, true psychopaths. I like the show.

    I always took that as the point of the show... sociopaths getting by.

    Whatever else it is, the show is an enduring testament to the comedic genius of Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Larry David. With respect to Jason Alexander, George Costanza is basically Larry David's id rewritten, hard to make that not funny. Jerry will never be accused of being a good actor. But take either Larry or Julia out of the equation and that show's a dud.

    I'm 61 ( just a timeline reference) so our family has watched every episode ( it's always on somewhere, right?) as many times as that is possible, and still keep doing it! It's a conditioned response

    And we will quote it around folks we know who did the same.

    But you do find out ( maybe you don't pickup on this until you've see Seinfeld a million times- or I'm stupid)
    How self centered those 4 characters are, realize maybe they like or need each other, but hate or feel above everyone else- and that's ( despite the clever humor), not really funny, or civil

    One of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. It took me the longest time to realize there was a laugh track.

    I watched it during its original run from its earliest episodes. I'm not sure if I saw the pilot when it first aired, but I caught up pretty quickly, as I used to enjoy Seinfeld's stand-up routines on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show in the 1980s. I bought the entire boxed set of DVDs when it was on sale at Amazon about a decade ago, but re-watching the episodes, I noticed that I now run hot and cold with Seinfeld -- I love the cast, but I can't say I'm a huge fan of its "cringe comedy" episodes, which Larry David specialized in. But the "Soup ****," the "Subway," "Frogger" and "the Deal" episode, where Jerry and Elaine decide to get back together are all comedy gold.

    Back in the 90's it was gut splitting funny. After all these years, it has lost a step or two, some things don't really survive repeated viewings. But yeah, I still chuckle at some of the bits.

    Nahhh...couldn't even get through one episode and now all that 90s irony is incredibly dated.
