    ... and disappointed a nation with their lackluster glorified clips-show finale.

    I, for one, didn't find the finale all that bad. It was nice to be able to weave a lot of the supporting characters back into the show--especially since these characters were so integral to the show's success. And having some of the final lines of dialogue link to the original episode was a nice touch.

    Not sure if there is a good way to end a show about nothing. And considering the hype at the time, any final episode was destined to fall short of expectations.

    I know I'm in the minority on this one. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    A tremendous show that still holds up, a decade later.

    The finale was designed so Seinfeld could say "Helllo, NEWMAN" one last time. All in all, pretty silly finale, a show about randomness ending with telegraphed moves left and right.

    I haven't seen more than three episodes of Seinfeld in their entirety. Just never became "must see TV" for me (please, don't shoot). So at least there hasn't been any new stuff in 10 years to go flying over my head.

    Didn't see the fascination then, don't see it now.

    It's the prototypical New York show. Just four people dealing with random idiocy--mostly of their own making, albeit--on a daily basis.
  12. I hated that show.
    Start to finish.
    Stem to stern.
    That it didn't end like Braveheart did for those dipshits was the final disappointment.
