I really don't see why Seinfield got so large, I mean yes it is funny, but from day one to the time they're in prison, they never learn and thier character never grows.

'course, I love Family Guy, so maybe I'm just an idiot who can't get a clear thought through. :p

I like seinfeld because they never take themselves too seriously. Like, from the few episodes of friends that I caught, they are always trying to come off as real people who just happen to be hotter than everyone else, and (like you and me :rolleyes: ) just can't help but get into quirky sexual love triangle misadventures with equally hot people, then drag out said misadventures for TWENTY FREAKIN SEASONS.

Anyways, it's true that seinfeld's characters never grew, they just stayed selfish and rude and were still the most horrible people on earth to the very end. Which, IMO, is what made it funny.

Thing about Seinfeld, is that that show always pointed out things that people notice in everyday life, but nobody ever really was able to pinpoint it, let alone make a joke. Seinfeld always pointed out the obvious, and built a entire episodes around such topics.

For example "Close talkers" people that only speak to you less than an inch away from your face.

"Face painters", people that put on make up before a sporting event to "support the team".

"Double dipping" , taking a chip, dipping it, taking a bite and then dipping it again.

Or how about girls with "man hands"! :eek:

How about "Re-gifters" , people who recieve a gift, but then wrap it up and give it to someone else.

To me this stuff was just comic brilliance!

This is seriously the ONLY TV series I EVER wanted on DVD.

Please don't kill my excitement. :p

Besides, those idiots on "Friends" got more than a million an episode, but at least Seinfeld was funny.

AND unlike MOST sitcoms, Seinfeld never resorted to having the occasional "serious episode" or having all the lame relationship arcs that MOST sitcoms had. Sure the characters never changed, and that is what made it work all the way to the end. AND all the core characters stayed for ALL seasons!

I love Seinfeld. One of the funniest sitcoms I have ever seen. About a week ago I saw the soup nazi one on TV. That is definately one of the most memorable episodes.

I am hoping to get them for Christmas.

Funny = Blackadder. Pwned.

As for the question, I watched two whole episodes of Seinfeld, the first when I had heard from some American person that it was funny... The second when I wanted to make SURE that it was totally unfunny and without merit.

Following this, I have been unfortunate enough to see various scenes from the show sporadically through no fault of my own.

As for spongebob, why, I watched quite a few episodes while in a drug-induced haze a while back. That and the teletubbies. Bad trip.

Seinfeld is hilarious ! I used to watch it everynight... when I had cable :dozey:

I believe I quoted Kain. Read before you post, it makes you appear more intelligent.

Spider AL

I believe I quoted Kain.Hardly relevant, since I'm saying exactly the same things about Seinfeld and Spongebob as Kain is. Anyway, why do you find Seinfeld funny? How can you? Enlighten me, do. Perhaps a quotation you find amusing would help. Perhaps a link to a clip that you find riotous.

Read before you post, it makes you appear more intelligent.I think the fact that I'm saying "I dislike Seinfeld, it is not funny" makes me appear intelligent enough.

Okay okay, let's all simmer down now.

AL, you and Kain have established that you don't like Seinfeld. Well and good. You came in here, said your little schpiel, boom. Now, this thread, ostensibly, is for those who like Seinfeld. Now that you've made your opinion known, it would be best to leave the thread to those who do like it. Because you're not going to get anywhere debating the merits and demerits of Seinfeld, at least not with the lot here. So just agree to disagree and leave it at that, all righty? All righty.

Kramer: "No more underwear"

Seinfeld: "Oh my god, all that is standing between me and your manhood is a thin strip of cloth!"

Kramer: "I'M OUT THERE JERRY AND I'M LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF IT"

Elaine in a crowded theater during the realease of The English Patient:

"THIS MOVIE SUCKS, IT'S AWFULL...SHE'S DEAD....THAT IS SO GROSS....(ETC)"

George's mom after catching George in the act:

"I come home and see him using his body as an amusment park!"

Mr. Bookman, the library detective. ("Nuff said")

"And i'll tell you another...."

Jerry to a telemarketer:

"Now is not really a good time, could I call you later at home, say around 8 o'clock? Not convenient, well now we understand each other..."

Not to mention, countless guest appearences from Lloyd Bridges.

Wow. People sure can become opinionated pompous smartass bastards when you get on the heated subject of twenty minute sitcoms.

As for Seinfeld. I "hahwdly" think being a fan is synonomous with a lack of intelligence. It was a good show, some of us like to think. You don't like it. Who cares? This just in: I've checked my underwear, and it seems I don't give a ****. Don't post. To quote Jason Alexander: "Jerry would've liked to have been here tonight, but he was busy ****ing a supermodel on a pile of money."
Or something like that.

LMAO! Jason Alexander is brilliant, just once i'd like to see him catch a break and get into something that makes Seinfeld look like a daytime talk show. Seinfeld really failed when he denied any possibility of spin offs. He probably knew any spin off, would have done just fine without him.

Edit- I changed the thread topic to avoid the confusion among Seinfeld haters.

No arguments here, I am just finding it difficult to understand why certain members post constantly in a thread about a topic that they hate. I see it happening in the Senate all the time, and i'll never figure it out.

That quote came from the Friars Roasting of Jerry Stiller. There were some great jabs on there. Jason Alexander mouthed off something to Ben Stiller, and Ben replied with something like "yeah, that's real funny. By the way, I loved your work in Duntin Checks In." That was farkin hillarious.

Funny, you made it perfectly clear that haters can post in threads too (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=139906&perpage=40&pagenumber=2)

Ok, so your saying that if you post a thread, that only people interested in HL2 are allowed to post in it?!?

If us "Halo Lovers" bother you so much, you can always add them to your ignore list! Under user cp, go to edit ignore, and just add our names to your ignore list.

To post a thread in Yoda's Swamp expecting only certain people to post in it, is an exersise in futility. I don't recall bashing your game, but I did think it seemed a bit silly to have to be online to install a game, but then again, these are just my opinions, just like when you thought it was silly for me to get upset after waiting outside in the cold for an hour, only to go home empty handed. Sorry if they bother you. But they ARE just opinions, nobody's breaking any rules here at this point.

He never said it wasn't alright to post. I think he was saying something along the lines of why would you? Especially over and over and over and over and over and over and over. He also said it was only an opinion and that no rules were being broken.

Right, and did I keep at it, over and over, and over, and over?

Nope. Made my peace and moved on. Know why I posted in that thread in the first place? He kept coming into the Halo 2 thread stirring the hornets nest. At least we agreed to dissagree, and now you don't see him in the Halo 2 thread, and by that same respect, I stay away from the Half Life 2 thread. Which brings me back to my first point. If you hate it, just like....hate it and shut up...why drag it out? What is the motive? If not to gain negative reaction, which is classic troll behavior.

Now the next reply to this thread had BETTER be something about the Seinfeld DVD set, or i'm locking this down forever. This is NOT the Senate Chambers!

It seriously is the funniest show I've ever seen. The humour is different though. There is no laugh track telling you where to laugh. The humour is there. You just need to find it.

Anyways, the show is similar to the first episode. It gets a LOT funnier, but it is presented in the same way, a sort of mock-ducumentary.
