I know alot of people dont like how they made the final episode(Going to jail, all there old "crimes" coming back to haunt them). I for one loved it, but if you didn't like it, how would YOU have liked to see the shows final episode?

What about a reunion show? How would a Seinfeld reunion show take place with the New York 4?

I think it would be very interesting to hear ideas, I have many myself. I just wonder how another Sein-Fan would like to see the show end/comeback/reunion...

I thought The Finale was brilliantly written by Larry David. My opinions on this can be found here.

Reunion shows generally suck. It would probably take away from the success of the series. They went out on a high note ("that's it for me, good night everybody!").

A lot of people didn't really like the last episode, but I think it was great. At first I didnt really like it but then when i saw it again, i liked it. But instead of having that as the last episode, I think it would've been great if they had done this:

I think seinfeld should've ended with jerry and elaine getting married. The reason why I say this is because in the part where the plane is going down, it seems as if elaine was about to tell jerry that she has always loved him. It would've been great to see all the things that they could've made fun of with stuff having to do with weddings or just problems that could happen at weddings.

Hi!, I am a big fan of Seinfeld from Argentina. Me and lots of my friends love it, we watch all episodes over and over again.

About the last episode I think it was great, maybe it was not the best one but it was really good. I liked it because we watched all the characters that appears during the 180 episodes and of course the best part was at end of the episode when Jerry asked George something about the first button of his shirt, and as all of you should know they were talking about the same thing ten years before at the first episode, that's why George answered Jerry 'We talk about this before?'. That last thing was just BRILLIANT.

p.d.: Sorry if I wrote something wrong, my english is not so good.

All I got to say is, The Finale was a perfect way to wrap up the show. I can't even imagine how they could have done it any better.

As far as a reunion show... I used to think (or at least hope) that they would do one, but I have to agree with Stan. Besides, Jerry would never agree to do such a thing.

I also thought the Last show was perfectly done. I just thought Id see some others opinions, but all SeinFans are in agreement!

BTW, RIO, what makes you say "Jerry would never agree to do such a thing" ?


Im not so sure Id like to see them do a reunion show, but maybe a reunion televised on TV, that has the 4 of them and the writers and some important other characters(Newman, Putty, etc) talk about good times and stuff that happened on the sets and stuff. Much like they did with M.A.S.H. last year.

I would have made the last show last an entire season. Drag out the trial with testimony on whether they were good, decent people or truly deserving of prison. And then I would have set them free.

Because truly they did have a good heart at times. Kramer did the AIDS walk; Elaine is kind to squirrels, Jerry sincerely tried to help Babu, and George...? Well, I am sure he did something nice; I just cannot remember what at the moment.

But, my idea could have worked. With just a little bit of effort --- not an entire year of filming --- the four could have done all the trial scenes in a short period of time. All the guests on the previous shows could have been used to testify and clips from the past shows would be their testimony.

They missed a great opportunity. Or did they? Why not release them on appeal and have the trial all over again. It still could work.

I would love to see a Seinfeld reunion, possibly on the 10th anniversary of the final episode (or maybe sooner than that).

How about Jerry finally getting married and being a family man? Or George, like Jerry, also moving to LA and serving as one of the writers for the Larry David Show?

How about Elaine would finally getting work at Double Day (maybe she discovered some interesting subject matters while in prison)?

And Kramer could get that make-over from the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy folks (imagine the Fab 5's expression upon seeing Cosmos' apartment equipped with the hot tub and the talk show set)?

I really thought the finale, like the whole show, was one of the best TV has produced. I was a bit disappointed that they all had gone to jail, though. When the mention was made several times of "it's only one year", I thought maybe they were leaving the door open to coming back after a year. If there ever were a reunion, I suppose it could be said that all served X years due to "bad behavior"! Smile

A scan of the courtroom is priceless, all of the characters who had appeared previously but have no speaking roles in the finale. Look closely for them all.

One of the best parts, and one that my sons and I had always been hoping for anyway, was the return of Babu Bhat who had promised to return to America and exact his revenge on Jerry. "Now it is Babu's turn to mock!" Thought I'd fall off my chair!

I'm not sure what to think of the series finale, as Kramer stated in the beginning of the bookstore "I don't get it, am I right people?"

Everything builds up nicely until the plane starts to come down, after that it seems all anti-climatic to me, it's not like i hate the episode but I feel something is missing, perhaps all that footage that they had to cut down because of time constraints, one day I would love to see all of it, maybe in the DVD Very Happy

I do like how it all comes full circle in the end, with the same conversation that started the show 9 years earlier, anyways if that was how Larry saw closure on the show I have to respect it.

Low Talker,
That would be the most boring season in the world. A season of the Trial?

I love seinfeld and i still watch it every night. I love it because there discussions go along with everyday life. I would have had them end the series with one last gathering in Jerrys apartment, that just seems more like a warm ending, one where they are all still together. I still loved the last episode. And for a show to be on prime time six years later, I'd say America is still craving for more. I would enjoy it if they did a reunion episode, an actual episode, then afterwards they could all talk about the show.

Someday they'll come out of prison...and because prison has invented the term "no hugging, no learning", the quartet will play the same melodi...maybe in a movie about nothing.

Well I for one thought there was a million ways they could have ended Seinfeld, and while I dont think the Finale was a good episode in itself, it gave us what we needed, closure to the series. Larry David gave the viewers and end, on a high note. If I could of changed one thing though, I would of loved to see the Bubble boy take the stand and mid questioning George stands up in chair screaming "moops!" and the bubble boy screaming "moors!". But as much as I love the Television show, I hope is does not come back. The show went out with CLASS, and I have not seen too many other shows that have gone out with class. Usually shows wait till they hit rock bottom to end it, and by then the viewers have all lost respect for the show.

I hear ya Justin, I just think that as brilliant as Larry David is, he can think of a way to have a reunion episode that is amazing and doesn't flop.

I think the finale could possibly have been done better, but given the magnitude of Seinfeld's popularity i don't think an ending to satisfy everyone would be possible...some of those above have mentioned possible romantic endings whereby jerry and elaine are married etc, which i agree would've been nice to a degree, but ultimately would've undermined the entire premise of the show and weakened it in the long run; i think that although the character's sometimes briefly dabble in selfless acts, the idea is that they basically are completely self absorbed, representing the epitome of shallow, materialistic 20th century society. I admire the creators for not having succumbed to pressure to pursue a "happy" ending...the final gaol scene, whereby the button issue of the pilot is discussed, represents the lack of change within all the characters, and their almost absurd self centredness that is the key to the show's hilarity

Last Episode: Spectacular.
What was it missing? Two men, one named Bob and one named Cedric. Other than that, fantastic episode.
