Did You Know?


From the outside you can see the restaurant where Peterman (John O'Hurley) meets George (Jason Alexander) & Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) is the same restaurant used in episode 2.11, Seinfeld: The Chinese Restaurant (1991). The inside is different however. See more »


When Kramer hits his head on the back of the fire truck, the sound of his head hitting is nowhere close to the actual impact itself. See more »

"You're gonna marry this woman... most likely"
9 August 2016 | by juanmaffeoSee all my reviews

Here we get the first misstep in Season 7. It's not a terrible episode, actually it is and enjoyable one, but I can't remember a single time I had laughed during its run.

We got four stories here: Elaine with the Fred's issue, Jerry with the Leaping Larry plot, Kramer with the firemen routes and George with J Peterman. Actually, George's story starts off with a killer idea: Susan asks him to tell her his credit card code and George doesn't want to, so she says it's part of the relationship, they have to trust each other. This would have been a great vehicle to give the arc another level of depth, but unfortunately the story goes elsewhere and loses its north.

The other three stories are simply the weakest bunch of the season so far. Elaine's plot is too neurotic to function, Jerry's is a bit-turned-story and Kramer's is the bad type of weirdness Seinfeld touches in the late seasons.

A somewhat entertaining disappointment.
