The pilot episode of Seinfeld was absolutely hilarious on so many different levels. The introductions of Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer were done in such creative ways, as each character’s role was immediately formed. Elaine is out to dinner and is told Jerry’s pilot show is going to air, but it is about “nothing.” This implies that there really is not much of a plot that carries over to each episode, however that does not mean the show is not brilliant in unique ways. Seinfeld is considered by many avid viewers to be one of the funniest sitcoms of all time, and it is really funny to think that when you boil it down, it really is about nothing. It’s the humor of each character and how they react to situations that arise that makes the show hilarious, it really has nothing to do with the actually storyline. Just an interesting way to think about why a sitcom is so popular….
