For more than a decade I've considered myself a die-hard "Seinfeld" fan. I've watched the series over and over again for several years. I've become so obsessed that I even know the script by heart. I still laugh at jokes that I've heard probably more than 20 times, but I keep watching it because it's my favorite series of all time, and no matter how good these new Netflix series are, nothing compares to "Seinfeld."
1. It's a show about nothing.
2. The characters are aware of who they are.
All of the main characters in "Seinfeld" know what their weaknesses are. They accept them and try to deal with them. George accepts that all his life he's made poor decisions and yet he still continues to do the opposite of what is logical. Thanks to Larry David's amazing script, the spectacular episode "The opposite" was created, which is the
only episode where George becomes successful.
3. The characters just don't care.
4. The secondary characters are unique.
Like, when you see someone at a party dipping a carrot twice into the hummus you're probably thinking "She is a double dipper!"? And, who doesn't know at least one woman who doesn't wear a bra, ever, like the "Bra-less wonder" - aka Sue Ellen Mischke?
