In the world of English sitcoms, it is the G.O.A.T
You might be imagining, why suddenly the Boutflix team all the way went back to the late 90s? 😊 Basically, for a few weeks, we have been observing that there isn’t much interesting content on Netflix or Prime Video or Hulu or Disney+ platforms. So, to refresh & rejuvenate ourselves we took a route back to the past and went to “SEINFELD” to entertain us. Hmm! this has given a motive to land on Hulu to Stream “SEINFELD” and for the users in the USA, you can stream this show on Hulu. For Indian users, I am not sure where this show is. If I find about those details, I will keep you posted through Boutflix social media pages.
People who are born in the late 80s or early 90s, the moment they land in Engineering or Grad colleges, the hot topic in those college days when it comes to English sitcoms – “Hey dude! Did you watch “FRIENDS”, “HIMYM”, “The Big Bang Theory” or “Two & Half men” ah? But to the surprise, in the history of English sitcoms, there are many more greatest shows than these four sitcoms. Yes! trust me, that’s why I wrote “SEINFELD” is greatest of all the time (G.O.A.T) and I did a fact check from all the internet articles I read, in many articles, it is rated better than Friends or other familiar sitcoms we heard. The reason we haven’t heard of Seinfeld earlier is, one – we didn’t have much reach back then, and another reason is the show was one generation earlier to friends, accordingly the news didn’t spread to India too.
Seinfeld runtime: 1989–1998 and Friends runtime: 1994–2004. The Internet started to gain popularity in the late 90s (In India: early 00s). Seinfeld has less overlap with the internet as compared to Friends (especially in India). That explains the online popularity of Friends. And eventually “FRIENDS” show took all over the world.
To my surprise, in a week I have completed at least 80% of the show, I was laughing like anything and daily I am remembering all the characters in Seinfeld. The show is all about the day-to-day lives of Jerry Seinfeld (Even the character name also the same) and his 3 colorful friends, – doofus, a loser, and a neurotic ex-girlfriend. Since last week, I fell in love with this show instantly and forever. I have become one of the millions of fans of this great show. Seinfeld obviously has a plot, but it is about nothing. Nothing specific: just what happens in the lives of Jerry Seinfeld, George Costanza, Elaine Benes, and Cosmo Kramer. It’s a sitcom; and the best one, from America. The only sitcom comparable to Seinfeld, for me, is Friends. Both sitcoms are phenomenal ones but people doesn’t know much about Seinfeld. The casting, the writing, even the theme song of Seinfeld is better according to me. Everything about this classic show is so well done. In the middle, it turns out to be the most stagnant routine in some episodes and yet makes it a comic genius; and seamlessly easy-to-watch-and-enjoy television. It’s the late 80s & early 90s in a nutshell.
Standup, videotapes, bass theme songs, and everyday absurdity that doesn’t need to get overly mature to tell its stories. Secret to the Seinfeld’s success is because of its writing and the character creation by Larry David & Jerry Seinfeld himself. Next to Seinfeld, I’m going to see “Curb your enthusiasm” by Larry David. I will post my analysis for that as well. Before this, being a huge fan of “FRIENDS” myself, I must admit SEINFELD is equivalently great. George Costanza is the best Character of the Show and there is no room for a debate at all 🙂
Seinfeld: A show about nothing; that has everything. You will have wonderful memories after watching this show. Do not miss this classic Sitcom on Hulu!
