EPISODE REVIEWS


Jerry Seinfeld / David Bowie
October 2, 1999


Reform Party Meeting:

Very energized, funny and politically correct. A
very good way to start the show & season. I liked
Buchanan's mustache, Ventura's entrance & Cheri's
makeup was surprisingly good!

A

Monologue:

His speech wasn't laughable, but amusingly
interesting. I loved his "dating married women" at the
end, though.

B

www.clownpenis.fart:

It was good, but if they could of explained why the
business used that title, it could have been a lot
funnier. (Maybe to attract attention...)

B-

Morning Latte:

It was nice to finally meet her husband. Parnell did
a great job as him. Seinfeld was really funny in here.
"Meat and fruit only, no pizza!!" If Ferrall could
have toned down his tension & Cheri been smoother,
this would've been a lot funnier.

A-

MKG meets Lenny Schartzman:

Satisfying. I liked how they're satiring the teen
drama shows. They could have done a better job hiding
the boxes; it kinda ruined the moment. But it was
nice.

C+

Javis Home Security System:

What a histerical surprise!!!!!!!!!!! This was
superb!! I sure hope they rerun this one.

A++

Action 8 News Watch:

Way to the viewers on their toes. I could tell this
was a Seinfeld idea, and a good one too. "A common
household object is found to be lethal. We'll tell
which one at the end of the hour."

A-

Weekend Update:

The jokes were very good, (especially about Garth
Brooks) but Colin was looking uneasy tonight. It's
like he's seen a ghost. Nice Seinfeld vs. Seinfeld. I
was wondering when Fallon was gonna show up. "Jerry,
you ignorant slut!" That was good.

B because of Colin's look

David Bowie:

He's once again changed. (Quite different from the
vampire look last time he was here; but you gotta
admit, that's one cool costume!) It was a good
performance. I liked it.

B+

Seinfeld in Oz:

Histerical!! The sketch lived up to its concept very
well here. "Whoever goes the longest without commiting
male rape wins the bet"

B+

1-800-EAT-SH**:

Another good Seinfeld idea. It got even funnier when
they were actually persuading him to eat it. And I
loved that "Don't like the sketch writing?" bit at the
end! Reminds me of Big Daddy when the kid said that
critics are cynical a-holes.

A-

...And a Pizza Place:

This was the low point for me. It's very hard to
believe that a show like that could be a hit. (I don't
think even Fox would for something like that)

D

David Bowie2:

More energized and just as entertaining. David
Bowie's a natural (more of a legend, really)

B+

Keeping Him Alive:

Not great, but the Patch Adams and "He's alive, he's
dead..." kept it from an F, though.
