Seinfeld, on its face, chronicled the life of stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld, along with his best friend George Costanza, on-off girlfriend Elaine Benes, and kooky neighbor Cosmo Kramer. If you want to know how to watch Seinfeld online, here’s a primer.
In fact, for a handful of episodes began with Jerry performing stand-up in front of a brick wall, late ’80s style. After waning for a couple of seasons, the show not only survived, it thrived, and became a pop culture phenomenon that is rerun on local and cable channels alike.
The series protagonist Jerry may have been the series’ namesake, but the personalities around him are what made the show a comedy powerhouse. George Costanza (Jason Alexander) who is loosely based on Larry David, was the neurotic yet loveable failure who was the punchline to most of the series’ jokes. Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) served as the lone woman in the pack of dullards and naturally served as the voice of reason. And no episode would feel right unless Jerry’s neighbor Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards…yeah, I know) busted through the front door with some hair-brained scheme.
Without Seinfeld, would anyone of us be “Masters of your domain?” or live in fear of the idea of a “Soup Nazi”? Unlikely. There’s a chance you can turn your TV on right now and catch an episode. It’s still worth it to have the knowledge of how to watch the show online.
