The Obama episode was my favorite.

Imagine Dump doing one of those.

Jerry should have trolled him by bringing the crappiest Soviet era sedan.

Yeah, same. But I did binge it pretty hard sometimes but then be surprised there was a new season out.  It was like all solo Jerry stuff; pleasant fluff soon forgotten.

The episode with an absolutely nutty Jim Carrey in a 1976 Lamborghini Countach stands out

Can you even have a conversation in a car that loud?

Comedians aren't going to have time to waste doing Jerry's show.
A lot of them are going to have to tour like crazy to make up for the money they've already lost from cancelled shows, TV, and movie performances.

When I was in Moscow as a kid in the mid 70s, the Volga was basically just a bit less shiatty than a Lada.

It was the vehicle of choice for mid-level apparatchiks and diplomatic taxis.

You could hear them rusting from across the street.  Heat was basically exhaust pumped into the cabin.

Window defrosting was a rag.

Good times.

Sure was hit and miss for me. Was funny how many times Jerry referenced Larry Miller over the course of the show.

The Brian Regan episode might have been my favorite. But it didn't, you know... Blow me away.

I enjoy watching him and some old pals talking craft. But 80+ episodes is plenty. I really enjoyed both of the Super Dave episodes. Rewatched them after he died. They're often really enjoyable people out of character, so to speak.
 
2020-05-19 11:27:55 PM  
It was OK. I was glad to see the Mel Brooks one, because I always wanted to have a look in on what he and Carl Reiner get up to when they hang out.

His VW Karmann Ghia with the Porsche 912 suspension, motor.

The engine and suspension really are more of a hassle then they are worth in performance. It's just cool to know you can swap it out. You gain like 10hp and maybe .05 on the skidpad.

While driving around, you cannot devote attention to conversations. Especially in old, valuable standards. Joe Rogan has 1500 conversations because there's no spread attention. Joe even had a gremlin looking shiat up for him when he has a Google question.

"Seinfeld indicated through the course of this call that not only was this possibly his last stand up special.."

It will be his last comedy special. You can tell because the Beacon Theater does not look like the Beacon Theater.

The sold them in Colombia as well.

When you went to buy a Volga in Colombia they had a crate to sit on because there was no interior.  You had to take it to a shop to build you one.

I think they stopped importing in the 70s when the cabs became Dodge darts and then Chevettes.

The only time I ever saw a Volga was parked or on the side of the road with the hood up.

I liked the show well enough, but I'll watch almost anything that has a master of a craft talking to another master. It's always fascinating.

And I don't even find Seinfeld all that funny. The new special was okay.

I like his wordplay though, man has strong wordplay.

Jerry came off as an out of touch and vindictive asshole on the show. If an episode was good, it was solely due to his interview subject.

schubie: Jerry came off as an out of touch and vindictive asshole on the show. If an episode was good, it was solely due to his interview subject.


In other words, his true personality.

The weirdest episode was Apitow showing off all of Gary Shandling's comedy files (I think it was filmed only a few months after his death). Jerry's expression really was priceless.

That is because Jerry Seinfeld is an asshole. He would be the first person to tell you that and he never tries to hide it and yet some people seem surprised when they realize it.

Seriously, and he says it all the time on the show, even!

Boudyro: I liked the show well enough, but I'll watch almost anything that has a master of a craft talking to another master. It's always fascinating.


That was my favorite part of it, and something I also enjoy overall.  I learn new things about a subject I never paid much attention to, and maybe gain a little insight in the process.

My other favorite parts were definitely the Brooks/Reiner "watching TV" and the Obama-driving-in-a-circle eps.

Seinfeld is kind of a dark show, especially if you remove the laugh track. It was a proto-Always Sunny, especially after Larry David left and Jerry started removing any tether the show had to reality.

I wasn't a big fan of the new Netflix special, but I did appreciate that he was blunt about being a super-rich asshole who still gets bothered by all the little things in life. David and Larry Charles are total optimists by comparison.

I've been watching Seinfeld stand-up for a while now  Had never seen it while the show was on the air. It's good stuff. Heartily lol'd.

I really wonder if something happened in the production because the later episodes gave me the impression that the show's editor hated Seinfeld. Each show was 15 or 20 mins total cut from, let's say, 120 mins of footage at a minimum (probably way more). What they choose to put into the episode is such a deliberate decision, making what they choose even weirder.

You think Jerry Seinfeld didn't have final cut on that show?

Perhaps! But based on the final cut, I truly can't tell. This is not simply based on how he is edited but how his guests are edited. I would think that when editing, you want to make it look like every single guest had fun, no matter what. I think of the John Mulaney where at least once, it is obvious that John Mulaney wasn't listening to whatever Seinfeld was saying. Why leave in that moment? The remark wasn't that funny. They could do pickups like on reality shows and insert something else. What is happening in that editing bay?

I'm just surprised he let himself look like such an asshole. What was left on the cutting room floor? He delighted in trying to kill Ricky Gervais.
