you remembering watching? Or how did you get started watching Seinfeld? What was your reaction to it?

I remember "The Parking Garage" episode as "my first". I remember Elaine's comments when people refused her requests for help while she was carrying the goldfish in a bag. I thought it was pure genius for the writers to be able to successfully make a show that was set only in a parking garage. Now that's good writing, and it was great entertainment, too.

For me, because I was in college when it was out, I didn't start watching it regularly until the very last episode/finale aired. So when I saw the last episode, I thought I didn't like the characters or that episode in particular. Then, I started watching the reruns, and the last episode began to make sense. I thought it was a pretty good way for me to be introduced into the Seinfeld world. Because I couldn't understand why the characters all got in so much trouble in the last episode until I watched the previous ones leading up to the finale. All their antics seem to intertwine into each other's lives. And their actions also always seem to negatively effect the other people in their lives, too. It's pure joy to experience their follies!

It was in the back of an ill-purchased van. When it was over, I pounded down a wine cooler and smoked a cigarette. Ooochie-mama!

I first started watching Seinfeld out of curiosity, having read good things about it. I didn't actually watch full episodes to start with, I just watched bits and pieces of it (thanks to my love of channel-hopping) so obviously I wasn't experiencing the episodes in all their glory... Indeed, I'm currently downloading season 7 eps, and I see things that I vaguely remember seeing before (as I wasn't a real Seinfeld fan then, I didn't pay too much attention to the episodes!), such as Kramer giving Jean-Paul a hot drink during the marathon.

Anyway, the first episode I saw when I made a conscious effort to watch Seinfeld was 'The Susie', which was slightly confusing as I didn't know if the woman character's name was Susie or Elaine - not until the next episode anyway Smile .

My first was

49. The Opera

I was 16 and I'll be honest I hated it I had no Idea why people raving about this show.

About 6 months later I saw "the opposite" and I was hooked, I fell in love with the show and wondered why I hadn't been watching it since the beginning.

And the funniest comment of the day award goes to.....

J. Chiles!!

It was on when I was younger, and I used to catch just random scenes when my parents were watching and not particularly understand them. I think the first full episode I ever watched might have been part 2 of The Cadillac, then I don't think I watched it till the finale, after which I was hooked...

Hmmm I really don't remember. I do remember seeing the show before, but I distinctly remember the final episode when I was but a wee lad (10 maby?). I had to watch it because my brother told me it was a big tv moment or something. I guess I've been watching since then.

PS> I feel really young in here haha. (I'm only 15)
