Seinfeld: Season 7 Review

Image for Seinfeld: Season 7

One of the most popular seasons of this seminal TV comedy.

★★★★★

Later seasons of Frasier and Friends saw members of the respective gangs find that true love was right before their eyes and hook up with each other. In contrast, the only notable attachment in Seinfeld’s seventh series is George’s engagement to a girl he spends 24 episodes trying to wriggle away from. That inspired story arc ends in a darkly blasé shock, while the other regulars get highlights too: Jerry confronts the Soup Nazi, Kramer is arrested for pimping and Elaine dates a Maestro. Best of all, this is the season where the glutinous Newman comes into his own, hatching plans and giggling like his dinner depends upon it.
