I often relate to the world through Seinfeld. I often say, "this reminds me of an episode from Seinfeld," and then go on to explain why to uninterested acquaintances. My Boss relates through the Andy Griffith Show. Sometimes, I'll tell which episode of Seinfeld and he'll follow with a related episode of Andy Griffith, or vice versa. Good times good times.

Seinfeld. Not that there's anything wrong with Friends.

You'll notice that the words "Seinfeld" and "Friends" are clickable links. When you submit topic ideas, feel free to include links for the choices (especially if it's something obscure).

This causes me no end of derision from friends who are evidently much hipper than I am, but I never really "got" Seinfeld. His stand-up is funny... but I just can't get involved in the stories or the characters.


OTOH, there are any number of Friends references ("Pivot!" "Mrs. Chanandler Bong" "Just the one divorce in '99!") that reduce me to a giggling mass of humanity.

Mark, you don't "get" Seinfeld? I used to think we could be great friends...

Got here from Jeremy's blog . . . and after much thought and nervous hovering over the Vote button, I chose Seinfeld.


Actually, I didn't really have to think about it. Both shows were funny but over the long haul Seinfeld stayed more consistent. You never saw a commercial that began, "This week, on a very special episode of Seinfeld . . ."

Exactly, Paul. One of the foundational principles of Seinfeld was "no hugging, no learning." For the most part, they stuck to that pretty closely.

Yes! I was hoping that ToT? would have the power to reunite people. I'm weeping on my keyboard!

What can I say? "Friends" was the Sitcom equivilent of nails on a chalkboard.

OK, so a year and a half after this poll was posted, I'm bored. So I may as well make the comment count even. LOL
