Shortly before my exam, we finished watching all nine seasons of Seinfeld. It took us about two months of two to four episodes per night. It’s one of Matt’s favourite shows, while I had never watched one single episode. I had my doubts about it but by the second season, I was already hooked!
The show – which aired for the first time in 1989 – was written by two friends; stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld and writer Larry David. Set in New York, it is based on their real-life experiences with friends and acquaintances and revolves around the life of – you guessed it – Jerry Seinfeld. Larry David was turned into George Costanza (played by Jason Alexander), Jerry’s self-loathing, idiotic friend. There are also Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), Jerry’s confident ex-girlfriend/friend, and Kramer (Michael Richards), Jerry’s goofy, hipster neighbour.
