Why Nothing is Interesting

Uploaded by cruelanais on Aug 24, 2005


When one contemplates how the "show about nothing" could be so comical one starts to wonder just how nothing can provide such an interesting topic for the comedies of life. In life something is what people think about. People worry about details or they worry about the big picture. The little nothings that trouble people only for a single moment of a single day are quickly forgotten. Rather its a place to hide at work or a bad day with a coworker little nothings are soon forgotten. Seinfeld takes those little nothings and combines them to create something which is truly something.

Kramer struggles with the knowledge that he has not fully realized one well crafted scheme in his life. Elaine worries with the fact that she can not hold onto a good boyfriend for long, nor a good job. Jerry ponders the lives of his nothing friends as well as his own Lex Luthurs which seem to always thwart his plans to find his own Lois Lane and live the life of Superman.
