I thought we had 'Garbage day' weekly, why celebrate this then?

Still cracks me up. In my mind, there's a simple holy trinity of sitcomes - Seinfeld, Arrested Development and Newsradio. That's it. That's the list.
 
2013-05-14 03:11:47 PM  
Always Sunny should be on that list, and Seinfeld was not that funny.

I might have to lobby for the inclusion of The Honeymooners.

Seinfeld, however, is probably the #1.

Nope, but it reminded you of a lot of other really funny episodes.

"MOOPS!"

Meh.
 
2013-05-14 03:28:54 PM  
Wasn't suppose to be funny or satisfying in my opinion.  It was about watching these awful people finally deal with the consequences of their actions over the series.  Absolutely love the show and watch it almost nightly, but one of the best parts of the show was how they would routinely screw over others and laugh about it and move on, in the end all those people gave them their comeuppance.

This is the only show that I will still watch a rerun when I come across it on TV.

After 15 years.

No other !

Sad? Really subby? It's been 15 years. Get the fark over it already. Are you also still sad over Guns n'Roses breaking up?

Not a bad list.  I hate having to pick three because I enjoy 'Married...With Children,' '3rd Rock,' and 'MASH' so much.

It is funny to be how far Cheers has fallen.  I remember it being a huge deal when it went off the air
 
2013-05-14 03:38:04 PM  
The finale aired just a couple of weeks before I walked across the stage at my high school graduation.  So you're telling me it's been 15 years since I graduated high school?

No no no, fark you subby!  I'm still....uh...21 years old.  So you and so free.  What a time to be alive!!
 
2013-05-14 03:40:51 PM  
To mean the Seinfeld finale was basically Jerry and Larry trolling the audience for setting they expectations so high for the final episode of a show about nothing. I'm fairly certain both have said in subsequent interviews that they regret having done that, and if they could do it again, would have gone out with something better.

I think most people can tell you where they were and what they were doing when the last episode of Seinfeld aired.
 
2013-05-14 03:41:15 PM  
I've had to go Seinfeld free simply because I've seen every episode 100 times.  Maybe in 5 years I'll watch again.  I did miss Cheers when it went off the air.

Seinfeld while being a popular show was actually not very good.

Never understood the appeal of this show. Poorly written, unlikable characters, massive plot holes. But to each there own I guess

There was a whole season of Curb about this very fact.

lulz.......

there is definite euphoric recall with seinfeld.  now that it's been gone awhile and i watch some of the very early episodes i am surprised at how very bad they are.  then, it's like in season 4 they caught lightning in a bottle...

it also surprises me how much "rules of engagement" is like seinfeld.  i wonder if that is by design.  same joke profiles, same cafe schtick, same a lot of stuff......and, it's very, very good.
 
2013-05-14 03:49:30 PM  
Still great, but you quickly realize from the reruns how many of their problems could've been solved with cell phones.

No Soap, Newsradio.

// if you have to ask about Soap, just go to Netflix; all your questions will be answered in next week's episode

Remember folks, entertainment tab is about thread shiatting and telling people that nothing is good, even when referenced and laughed about 15 years later.

"The Contest" was one of the funniest sitcom episodes I've seen to this day.

/I'm out!
 
2013-05-14 03:52:37 PM  
I was working at a Pizza place on the night of the Seinfeld finale - and I can still clearly remember how at the minute the show started, all of the phones went silent (we had been getting slammed with orders up to that point).  I walked out to the street and there were almost no cars on the road, nobody on the sidewalk.  It was like the world had gone quiet.

Not surprising, given that this was out in the burbs, but it was still a bit eerie to realize that damn near every single person in town was glued to their tv at that exact moment.

The Entertainment Tab doesnt hold a candle to the Music Tab (RIP) in that regard.

Red_Fox: "The Contest" was one of the funniest sitcom episodes I've seen to this day.

The thing I remember most about that was that nobody had made masturbation the central theme of a sitcom before in my recollection.  It was pretty far outside what was normal.

See also "The Jimmy".  I don't recall any other show making light of mental retardation.
 
2013-05-14 03:59:22 PM  
I saw the finale on rerun not too long ago. What gets me is how disproportionately unfunny it was compared to the series at its peak. The finale wasn't just bad, it was unusually bad.

At least Curb finally gave us the Seinfeld finale fans deserved, even if it was a decade too late. Danny Duberstein, anyone?

Someone talking about "massive plot holes" in a 22 minute comedy like Seinfeld aside (such as?), what sitcoms would you consider well-written if Seinfeld is poorly written?

I mean, I don't like a lot of comedies but I can understand the appeal. You can't see any aspects that some people might enjoy?

Oh gawd, the only people you were allowed to like on that tab were dead rockers from the 70s who recorded exclusively in vinyl and nobody but people who claimed to know guitar were familiar with. I'm glad that thing burned like a disco fire.

I like this tab sometimes, farkers can suggest good entertainment but it never happens until the thread shiatters have vacated the premises.

Didn't really like the Seinfeld finale when first aired, but it has grown on me over the years.   Wish Larry would make some new Curb...Palestinian Chicken was farkin' hilarious.

At least Seinfeld didn't go all St. Elsewhere at the end:

I was being snarky about the plot holes (to see who bites), but I meant the appeal part of it. I tried watching a few episodes and I really didn't get into it. I enjoyed Cheers back in the day, Happy Days (when they aired new episodes), even the Brady Bunch. I enjoy Community, Modern Family, The Middle, but for some reason Seinfeld never really did it for me. If people enjoy it, good for them, but not my thing...

After realizing that all the sitcoms I've liked over the past 10 years have been single-camera, watching any multi-camera sitcom now feels unbearably stale. Static sets and static camera angles make the jokes seem static, too.

Season 2 showed some signs.  The Chinese Restaurant episode, for example, was fantastic, still one of my favorites.  Then Season 3 was when it really started hitting its stride.
