Hey, yesterday at 11:00 I was watching Seinfeld and they put that episode where George pretends he is O'brien and takes the limo ride to Madison. I think this is the worst episode they have ever made. It was funny here and there, but overall it was very boring. The worst part is, that they aired that episode I think already 3 times in May! Why do they keep putting a repeat of that episode? What do you all think about it?

I also disagree about The Limo being the worst episode. I thought it was clever. There are some real gems in that show...

George: Tim, who's the head of the Aryan Union, you or me?

Tim: You are.

George: And who's responsible for making hate mongering and fascism popular

Tim: You are.

George: Good. I think you forgot something.

Tim: I'm sorry.

George: Good. Now get out.

Haha...that's GOLD!

i like that episode too. i'm not sure if i have a worst episode, but i usually find the ones with jerry's parents to be the least funniest, especially when jerry goes to florida. in other words, the ones without Kramer.

Amazing. While I love any Kramer involvement, I find the ones with Jerry's parents, ESPECIALLY those in Florida with Jack Klompus, et al, to be some of the funniest television, ever. The quick paced timing and delivery of dialogue is nearly unmatched, IMHO.

It's great that Seinfeld can appeal to so many different people in so many different ways. Some people I hear say they don't like Kramer, and I love him. You're right though. Jack is pretty funny. "Take the pen!"

Speaking of Jerry's parents, there is one episode (very early one) where Morty is played by someone other than the normal actor. Does anyone know why he played Jerry's dad for this one episode? And who was this actor and what else as he played in?

I love Jerry's face when he says...

"sure, no one gets shot in the city!"

You are way off...any of the episodes from the last few seasons is much worse than the O'brien episode. I think this one's maybe a bit touchy for some people...and a bit more satirical than the usual comedy on the show. But I find it great.

Well, the fact that it is the worst episode for me is that almost the entire 30 minutes takes place inside the limo. I mean, I didn't like the 2 guests that came into the limo, without them that episode would be fine for me, but I hated the way that girl talked, how she was so passionate about the Big Game, and how that guy was just too dull. I think they chose 2 bad actors to play those rolls. I also like it when Kramer is more involved as well as the outside world. Since it was ALL based inside that limo, with only Jerry and George, it was just too touchy like the person abobe me said. Just my opinion. I guess, most of you people don't agree with me which is 100% fine.

I disagree as well. This is a classic Seinfeld situation episode. The way George's crazy hair-brained scheme to take the limo blows up in their faces in the end is priceless! Brilliant!

Kramer: " George and Jerry, they probably know who killed Kennedy!"

The limo is one of the brillant pieces of situational comedy that seinfeld excells over other sitcoms...

Its a true seinfeld situation... Kramer was hilarious as usual...
After getting into the limo Kramer calls Jerry Obrien... At the same time... the real Obrien phones them in the car..

One of the funniest episodes that has ever been made. One of my least favorites is the episode that goes backwards...too confusing. I like stuff that you don't need to think about...(one of George Costanza's lines)

A friend of mine took the backward bits and re-assembled them in forward order on his computer, complete with sub-titles to say "two-hours later", etc. It was a real hoot!
