TBS Celebrates ‘Seinfeld’s’ 25th Anniversary With Its 25 Greatest Episodes [VIDEO]
Hard to believe it's been more than 15 years since the final episode of "Seinfeld". In fact, it's now been 25 years since the show made its debut on NBC. To celebrate the anniversary, TBS will air 25 of the show's greatest episodes during a special tribute week.
If you're a fan like I am, this is a great chance to see some of the very best episodes. Which I'm hoping means very few from the more uneven final two seasons of the show. The marathon will take place from June 30 through July 5, with four episodes airing each night, according to a TBS press release. Here's a full list of the schedule.
In honor of the occasion, I thought I'd run down my six favorite "Seinfield" episodes. Why six? Why not.
The Junior Mint (Episode 60, Season 4): Jerry goes on a date with a girl and doesn't recall her name afterwards. She says it, "rhymes with a female body part," and when he says, "Could it be Mulva?," she walks out.
The Limo (Episode 36, Season 3): Jerry and George grab a limo at the airport, but under false pretenses. They call Elaine and Kramer when they think they have tickets to a Knicks game at Madison Square Garden, but it turns out they are in the limo of a well-known Nazi leader, who is heading a rally in the city.
The Opposite (Episode 86, Season 5): George realizes that doing everything opposite might actually work for him. It does and he gets a girlfriend, moves out of his parents' house and gets hired by the Yankees. Elaine, however, becomes unlucky.
The Contest (Episode 51, Season 4): George's mom catches her son doing something that mothers should not catch their sons doing. She throws her back out and George says he'll never do "it" again, but Jerry start a contest to see if they can withstand the pressures of holding off.
The Outing (Episode 57, Season 4): – Jerry tries to refute reports that he and George are lovers. Guest-starring Paula Marshall.
The Sniffing Accountant (Episode 68, Season 5): George's father gets him an interview as a brassiere salesman. Evidence points to Jerry's accountant being a cocaine user. Jerry, Kramer and Newman set up a sting to find out the truth. Elaine's new boyfriend is perfect except for his unwillingness to use exclamation points.
