"Dedicated to SolRo"?
Well go on. Finish the story!
I can see neutral on Seinfeld, but angered?
Getting angry about pop culture is just the flip side of fandom anyway, so I guess there's some poetic justice there.
Watching this clip reminds me of the fact that I would have been a big fan of Seinfeld if not for the constant and unendurable presence of Jerry Seinfeld. All the other characters are a lot of fun and recognizably human. Jerry is some smug and arrogant self insert that mugs for the camera and fucks an unending stream of Christian girls. This is probably the height of humor if you are Jerry Seinfeld, but for the rest of us, not so much.
There are people on this website who despise Seinfeld.
I don't want to name names.
I seek no wider war.
Back in the day, I was annoyed and frustrated with Seinfeld, but "angered" might be too strong a term. Currently I am indifferent towards Seinfeld, mostly due to the fact that he no longer imposes himself into my world-space, and as such it's easy to forget he exists!
I agree with Mr Wildcat's assesment of Jerry himself. Mr Seinfeld was basically the 90s version of Louis CK, only even more obnoxious and even less funny.
Cena - that is a mislabeling. Mr SolRo did not claim to have "invented" coral, he claimed to have discovered a way to *save* coral, and then sat on his findings, neglecting to publish them until now.
Louis CK is a genius and you're a horrible person.
Baskets is hilarious. Louie the show is hilarious.
And I haven't seen it yet but I bet his new show with Alan Alda is hilarious.
If you don't agree with this it is because you are, again, a horrible person.
Jerry is by far the worst thing about the show, although how bad he is varies season to season. I've been rewatching the whole thing this month and I'm halfway through season 4. So far season 2 was the best, season 3 was really inconsistent and Jerry seems to be trying to be Dennis Leary.
His monologues were terrible without fail, though, but honestly that's part o the charm of the show for me.
In season 2 they had found their stride but weren't huge enough yet for Jerry's ego to overshadow his role as straight man. Also that's the only season where it really lives up to the "show about nothing" cliche, in a good way. By the middle of season 3 they were already getting into the big, cartoonish story arcs and running gags, which were overall handled a lot better than most TV of the time but still get lazy sometimes.
Louis CK is great but his popularity has led to him becoming overrated. It's not a reflection of him, it's a reflection of his fans.
Much like how The Beatles were a pretty fantastic pop band but weren't even close to the hype surrounding them.
It's the curse of celebrity, really.
Actually I did see his new show, the one which apparently Alan Alda is in, although I don't know who Alan Alda is or which character he played.
It was pretty boring. Steve Buscemi gave a great performance and the exchange between the DA and the hipster was a pleasant change of pace, but overall it just felt like watching an hour-long student play. I'm glad I wasn't the one who paid five bucks for it...!
Oh, right, yes, I just looked it up, Mr Alda is the old man. He was OK. His joke about "the niggers" was probably the only legitimate laugh to be found during that entire angst-fest.
Which is interesting, given that the funniest joke any Seinfeld cast member ever told was also about "niggers". Louis CK and Seinfeld: Synchronicity.
Baskets is one of the funniest shows.
Gosh I don't know what else to tell you.
