And the best Seinfeld character is…

June 18, 2012


As sad as I am that George didn’t stage a comeback, there’s a reason Michael Richards won all those Emmys.

Serenity now?

Eh, who am I kidding, Kramer’s hilarious. Swell voting, folks.

– Kramer: 14 votes
– George: 8 votes
– Elaine: 6 votes
– Newman: 4 votes
– Puddy: 4 votes (a close second behind George for me)
– Frank Costanza: 4 votes
– J. Peterman: 2 votes
– Jerry: 2 votes
– Soup Nazi: 2 votes
– Uncle Leo: 0 votes
– Estelle Costanza: 0 votes

Still one of the best half-hours in television history…

    A lot of love for Elaine on this poll…. very surprising to me.

      I think the picture of her dancing helped. Elaine has her moments though.

    Just two votes for J. Peterman? Blasphemy!

    Don’t get me wrong, Kramer’s great, but I think George is the best character on the show. His neurotic tendencies, his lying, all of that behavior which gets him into the most absurd problems on the show. I also think Jerry’s character is horribly underrated. The funny thing about Kramer is that as “wacky” as he seems to be, out of the main four, he’s the only one who actually goes out of his way to help people. George will knock down women, children and the elderly to escape a small “fire”; Kramer will commandeer a bus across the city to save a woman’s pinky toe.

      I am right there with ya’. George is far and away my #1 with Puddy as the runner-up. And Jerry is underrated, if only because he was so big behind the scenes and that didn’t really reflect in his character on-screen. All the same, he’s great. And good point about Kramer, never thought of it that way.

      Love that “fire” episode with George, too.

    Gotta go with George. Jason Alexander was by far the best actor, and couldn’t have been more perfect for the role. George was really the character that Seinfeld was about; the absent-minded American that doesn’t know which direction to take in life.

      Preaching to the choir, man. George is one of the greatest characters of all time, regardless of medium. Too bad Kramer took so much of the spotlight when the show was running, ’cause George was (and still is) the best thing about that show. SERENITY NOW!

Drop that knowledge!
