Okay, before moving on, I want to acknowledge that I DID have The Chinese Restaurant on the list initially, but after re-thinking it and weighing it against a few others that I had as runners-up, I've decided to switch it out for another. But it's not any of these next three.

7. The Limo (3.18)

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


There's not much to say about this one, other than only Seinfeld could make neo-Nazism so funny. Jason Alexander really gets to shine in this episode, and the scene where Kramer "works out" that Jerry might be the leader of the Aryan Union is just brilliant.

6. The Bubble Boy (4.07)

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


Moops vs. Moores. Again, Jason Alexander kills it in this episode, but the side story with Jerry and Elaine is great, too. Both are equally funny, and give all three characters chances to shine. But the real kicker comes at the end when Kramer accidentally burns down Susan's parents' cabin. Also, in the above clip, I just love how the bubble boy's dad reacts as if him choking the life out of a guy is nothing new.

5. The Hamptons (5.21)

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


So much to love in this episode: everybody's reaction to "the baby", the whole issue of "shrinkage", and of course, George's revenge on Jerry's girlfriend after she convinces George's girlfriend to leave the weekend getaway earlier than him. One of the most consistently funny episodes of the series.

Honestly, what other TV show at that time would deal with the idea of "shrinkage"?

I think it's the only show that has dealt with it.

This next one is the one that replaced The Chinese Restaurant.

4. The Bris (5.05)

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


Hilarious from beginning to end. Here we have the infamous "pig man" story, along with George being upset that his car was ruined by a suicidal patient after he parked it in "the perfect spot" (again, Jason Alexander nails it), but what really seals the deal for me with this episode is the character of the Mohel. His whole scene is just a riot. I mean, just look at it.

3. The Contest (4.11)

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


Regarded as one of the classic episodes for good reason. How many other sitcom episodes are there that are centered around trying to not pleasure yourself, and are so funny about it at the same time? Only this one. I always love the sequence of shots showing each character tossing and turning in bed, except Kramer, who caves in first...and fast.

As a huge Seinfeld fan, I'm hoping to see "The Chicken Roaster" included in the list. That's one of my all-time favorites.

I can't recall The Bris so well. The Contest is a classic, of course.

I was also considering doing a Top 10 Kramer Moments list, but I think it'd be too hard just because there's too many to choose from. At any rate, I'll include what I know to be my favorite one along with my Top 2 Episodes.

It's like you're psychic or something :

2. The Chicken Roaster (8.08)

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


That scene alone earns this episode a spot on the list. After Larry David left at the end of Season 7, the show's comedy took a noticably broader and wackier approach under Jerry Seinfeld's showrunning, and this episode is the best example of that. Seinfeld and Michael Richards are in top form in this episode, with both getting a few big laugh moments, but there's also Newman's hysterical reaction to eating broccoli. "VILE WEED!!!"

1. The Soup Nazi (7.06)

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


How could anyone not love this episode? In fact, I think if you were to ask a bunch of people what one-off character from this show they remember the most, then the most common answer would be The Soup Nazi. But, could you blame them? Also, this episode features, the first appearance of Kramer's bullies: Bob and Cedric. Anyway, it's seeing how hilariously the "regime" of The Soup Nazi affects all the characters that makes this episode so memorable and my personal all-time favorite Seinfeld episode.

And...

My Top Kramer Moment

I think this is pretty self-explanatory:

Wow, it took them until season 7 to get to The Soup Nazi.

Seinfeld is one of those rare shows that got better as it went along. My TOP 10 is different from MB801 because I prefer the later episodes.

MY TOP 10 (in chronological order)


#10 - THE ALTERNATE SIDE (1991)

George's disaster in parking cars for residents in Jerry's building, Elaine's old-man boyfriend getting a stroke, and of course, "these pretzels are making me thirsty!"


#9 - THE IMPLANT (1993)

"They're real and fantastic" and "Douple-Dip."


#8 - THE PILOT, PART I & II (1993)

I like that season 4 revolves around Jerry and George making a pilot for a Seinfeld-esque show. I mean... they're literally making a show about the show we're watching. It's so bizarre and fourth-wall breaking that it is, in my opinion, when the series truly became a classic.


#7 - THE PUFFY SHIRT (1993)

The Low-Talker, the puffy shirt, and George as a hand model.


#6 - THE BARBER (1993)

As a fan of Tim Burton, Edward Scissorhands, of course, the classic Bugs Bunny cartoon, Rabbit of Serville, this episode always makes me laugh out loud. I would argue that it's the silliest episode in the series.


#5 - THE DINNER PARTY (1994)




#4 - THE MARINE BIOLOGIST (1994)

This episode has, by far, the best pay-off in the entire series. I love how everything perfectly leads to George having to rescue a whale. This is top-notch writing.


#3 - THE INVITATIONS (1996)

Like season 4, the 7th season revolves around one story arc. In this case, it's George's engagement to Susan, the NBC executive he met while developing the "Jerry" pilot. In this episode, George is getting cold feet and wants to call-off the wedding but he's finding it difficult to do. Fate seems to be on his side, however, when Susan dies from licking defected wedding envelopes. This would mark Larry David's final season and episode as showrunner. And man, what a way to go.


#2 - THE BETRAYAL (1997)

An entire episode told in reverse. Now we know where Christopher Nolan got the idea for Memento.


#1 - THE STRIKE (1997)

Festivus, Jerry's two-faced girlfriend, and Kramer returns to work.

The Betrayal would be in my top 3.

Is that the one when they're in India? That's one of my favourites. Another is the one where they have a JFK assassination enquiry-esque scene involving Kramer and Newman.

"I'm hit!"

Once upon a time I had grand designs to compile a list of all named Seinfeld characters from worst to best. I may still go through with that someday (whilst secretly hoping that JBond does it instead).

Alright, for my next list, I'm gonna be taking a page out of PG Cooper's playbook, because this particular list idea is very interesting:

The Top 20 Non-2012 Films I Saw In 2012

For this list, I'm using two main criteria:

1. The films on the list will all, obviously, have been released pre-2012.

2. The films on the list will all be films that I watched for the first time in 2012.

I have the list ready, and if not tonight, then I'll start tomorrow.
