Billed as a "show about nothing," Seinfeld
is actually a show about friendship. Jerry Seinfeld, the title character, fills his life with eclectic counterparts, including his self-loathing best friend, George Costanza. By embracing each of the seven deadly sins, George gets everyone he knows into all kinds of awkward situations…much to our amusement.
While Jerry is unemotional and seemingly unaffected, George is selfish, insecure and neurotic. These opposites keep audiences laughing from opening to closing credits. Plus, every good sidekick has connections. Stick with George, and you'll get good seats at a Yankees game. Sign up for the Screening Room newsletter!
