What's the deal with this show? Why do people find it funny? When it was first run, I gave it a shot as a midseason replacement. I watched the first 13 episodes and talked about it with my co-workers. I didn't laugh once. I tried watching it several times thereafter at the urging of friends who found it hilarious and I got nothing. What am I not seeing in this show? Classic TV moments that people talk about, like the Soup Nazi: "No soup for you!" Masters of their domain? Nothing. Not even a smile. "They're real and they're spectacular." Whatever.
I just don't get it. I have a good sense of humor, so why don't I see what's funny about this show? Now, I like Jerry Seinfeld himself. I think his stand up routine is funny. He was interviewed on Larry King the other day, and he blasted King for not even knowing that his show wasn't cancelled because of ratings. Seinfeld was merciless and funny. But today I thought, okay, let me give it a second chance, and what do I get? Kramer getting banned from buying fruit in a store and Jerry not being able to perform because George had been fixated on impotence.
Somebody rescue me!
