I was one of those people that never really got why 'Seinfeld' was so popular. I'd seen bits and pieces and a few episodes here and there, and what I saw always left me wondering why so many people thought it was the be all and end all of television sitcoms. Purely on the basis that I absolutely love 'Curb You Enthusiasm', and as Larry David was arguably the creative force behind the Seinfeld show, I decided to give Seinfeld another go and start from season one. I have to be honest, season one really isn't that special with the first season comprising of an awkward mix of stand up comedy and sitcom; there are a few funny gags, but it's really a show that's trying to find its feet. If you're new to the show, Seinfeld isn't something that will immediately win you over, but you should try and stick with it, at least until season three when the show really comes into its own, becomes more of a traditional sitcom, and much funnier.
