More outstanding episodes from the peerless US sitcom
By Season 8 – the show’s penultimate series – Seinfeld had set a new standard for American comedy.
Head writer Larry David and the eponymous Jerry had grown so much in confidence that nothing was out of bounds for them.
The four misanthropes they created (George, Kramer, Elaine and Seinfeld himself) were now orbited by an equally self-seeking cast of painfully credible weirdoes – Newman, Uncle Leo and the magnificent Anglophile, Peterman, a former heroin addict turned fashion impresario. Brilliant, brilliant stuff.
