Review: Seinfeld - 'the Most Successful Sitcom of All Time'

Seinfeld is the man who said many about nothing. Nothing can alter or diminish his caustic humor as his chosen topics are everyday things, which we all encounter. Few have the ability to look at these issues from a perspective so original, funny and why not even healthy as Jerry Seinfeld does. Jerry Seinfeld has three close friends: George, a liar, his eccentric neighbor Kramer and his former girlfriend, Elaine.

Seinfeld is known as a "show about nothing", but actually very much has happened in this series full of fantasy, that dared to break many taboos. The series would be called 'the most successful sitcom of all time'. Seinfeld lacks both the sentimental elements and the moralizing intentions usually present in American series; 'No Hugs, No Lessons' was Seinfeld's motto.

Seinfeld became the first television series to receive more than a million dollars a minute of advertising; performance previously matched only by the Super Bowl. The show was so popular that when the series was at its end the news that the show came to an end made the front page of major American newspapers. In every episode of "Seinfeld" characters refer to Superman.

As the Kramer character became more popular, the plateau applauses were interrupting the scene fluidity when he entered the door. Thus, the directors had to ask the audience not to applaud Kramer so much.

Director Steven Spielberg told at one point that while filming "Schindler's List" was so depressed, that is cheering just watching recorded episodes of "Seinfeld".

Verdict:

It is one of the best sitcoms in television history, which has sparked a real global hysteria; it's the show "about nothing" that became a huge success story, it's addictive, it's Seinfeld!
