Top 25 Seinfeld Episodes To Watch With Friends Instead Of Friends
No soup for you!
A little over a month ago, the greatest sitcom of all time turned 25. That would be a hyperbole if we were talking about any show other than Seinfeld, the greatest television program about nothing at all.
To commemorate Seinfeld's quarter-century bday, we decided to choose the 25 best episodes of the series, based entirely on our own subjective opinions. Yes, we're aware we're a little late on the uptake, but this is Seinfeld we're talking about, and we shouldn't even need a belated anniversary as a reason to create a "best of" list for the show.
If you're a late 90s child who never experienced the magic of Seinfeld, then below is a crash course in episodes you simply need to watch. Those of us who are already Seinfeld-fiends can read through, relive the hilarity, and harshly critique our choices. Read on below.
