Life according to Jerry
I’m a big fan of Seinfeld … period. I watched 7 seasons in 1-2 months and will probably splurge on the final 2 seasons soon. For those of you who have never seen the show: “Seinfeld” started as “The Seinfeld Chronicles” in a pilot back in 1989, it showed the day-to-day life of the popular comedian Jerry Seinfeld. The show ran for 9 seasons and is considered one of the most successful series of the nineties. It featureD such great characters as George Costanza (Jason Alexander) Elaine Bennes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and Kosmo Kramer (Michael Richards).
Over the years, many parts of the show have become part of popular culture: like the soup nazi, “regifting”, “these pretzels are making me thirsty“, “festivus“, “not that there’s anything wrong with that“, “you’re using the it’s not you it’s me routine ? That’s my routine !” and many many more.
The show was co-written by Larry David (director of the more recent “Curb your enthousiasm”) and Jerry himself and featured real-life experiences from both their lives.
