Seinfeld


A show about nothing, or is it? Seinfeld revolves around the everyday lives of four single New Yorkers. Jerry Seinfeld (as himself) is a comedian who's next door neighbor, Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards), is a professional moocher, the brains behind several get-rich-quick schemes, and is over at Jerry's apartment more than his own. Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dryfess) is Jerry's ex-girlfriend who he remains good friends with. George Costanza (Jason Alexander) is a short, stalky, bald man, who for most of his life, lived with his parents.

Seinfeld, said to be a show about nothing, was actually about a lot. It showcased the lives of four friends who would discuss their lives as they ate at their favorite cafe, Monk's. Seinfeld will go down in history as the show that revolutionized TV.

9x24: The Finale (2) recap: Continuing from the previous episode, Kramer's videotape is played for the jury.

The elderly woman, Mrs. Choate, whose marble rye Jerry stole in "The Rye", testifies. Marla, the virgin, is called to the stand and tells the jury about the foursome's contest in "The Contest". More testimony is given by the bubble boy; the handicapped woman whose spot George took; the doctor who treated Susan the night she died; the library cop, Mr. Bookman; Sidra; Robin, George's former girlfriend whose house caught on fire; a security guard from the parking garage; the detective who investigated Kramer when he dressed as a pimp; and the low-talker, who tries to testify but the jury can't hear her. When George Steinbrenner testifies, he talks about the calzone and how George is a communist. More witnesses give their two-cents about the foursome including the man who runs the underground cockfights; the pharmacist who sold Elaine her contraceptive sponges; a co-worker of Elaine's that speaks about the nipple in the Christmas letter; Mr. Pitt, who tells the story about when Elaine tried to smother him with a pillow; the Soup Nazi; and lastly Babu Bhatt who tells the jury about how Jerry and Elaine got him deported back to Pakistan... read more.
