Seasons 1 & 2 Are Not the Best of Seinfeld
on November 24, 2004
Seinfeld grew to be one of the best comedy shows on TV, but it isn't hard to understand why it originally struggled. During the first two seasons the actors were still trying to define their roles and many of the episodes were slow paced, tended to mope, and the actors often had a whiny dialogue delivery. By the end of season two, and the Chinese Restaurant episode, the characters were getting better and the show was starting to take shape. Probably the best part of this DVD collection is the "Making of Seinfeld" extra. Don't get me wrong, I think Seinfeld is great, but seasons 1 & 2 pale in comparison to the middle and later years of its stay on TV.
