I have no idea who Kesha is, so I'm right there with Jerry. :lol :lol

Isn't that the food George's father is eating in bed? Oh, wait. That's Kasha.

Today is the 30th anniversary of the show, it premiered on July 5 1989.

It's still one of my very favourite shows, and definitely my favourite comedy show of all time.

Agreed on all point Zydar, Seinfeld is one of the few shows that I can just watching over and over

Favorite minor characters? Has to be Puddy for me. Between the man-fur, car salesman, and face-painting, hes got so many funny moments/lines.

Depends if we're talking the primary support cast, or tier-3 random appearances.  Supporting cast ... Frank Costanza.  MINOR characters... Petermen.  Hands down.

There are 180 Seinfeld episodes and I figure I've seen each episode around 30 times at least.

That's over 5,000 times I've seen the show.

I would say it's a good show and that I like it lol.

Some of the very early ones, like in Seasons 1 and 2, I have only seen maybe twice, but from Season 3 until the 3rd to last episode, I have seen all of those probably 25 times each at least.  :lol :lol

And I say "3rd to last" because the 2nd to last one was terrible, and the finale I have only gone back and watched maybe two more times since.

I always really liked Peterman, his stories always cracks me up and that episode when George is ditched to have dinner with him is gold. In a similar spirit I think Elaine's dad (maybe he was only in that one episode? i forget) was great and you could feel the awkwardness through the screen when Jerry and George are waiting for Elaine to show. Frank is great too as is Puddy ofc.

Minor Character:  Mickey Abbot
Really Minor Character:  Bookman, The Library Cop

I wrote a fairly long-winded bit about how my favorite supporting character on the show was Mickey. Not sure if it was here or another forum. He was the perfect foil to Kramer. The scene where he is auditioning for the theater role with Kramer when he has on his skinny jeans is genius.

Good call on Bookman too as the one-time character spot.

Peterman and Puddy were great adds to the recurring cast, giving us enough of their hilarity without overdoing it. As a brilliant comic once said, they left us wanting more.

Brimly was great. He doesn't strike you as an imposing character but he pulls it off. My favorite is the LA homicide detective who does exactly the same thing as Brimly.

Oh yes! 5 minutes of internet research reveals him to be Lieutenant Martel.

I love in that scene how Jerry Seinfeld is legit trying not to laugh numerous times, resulting in Philip Baker Fall improvising the line, "Sure, go ahead and laugh if you want," on the spot. I love stuff like that.
