Seinfeld - Seasons 1-5
No show captured the eccentricities of New York like the Larry David-created sitcom Seinfeld. Helping to define America's view of New Yorkers the series gained endless fans over its nine season run. Though it wasn't the first show to assert the rudeness of Gotham's citizens its characters are selfish to a fault--not that there's anything wrong with that. Self-obsessed comedian Jerry Seinfeld is joined in the cast by his neurotic ex-girlfriend Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus); his chronically lazy pal George (Jason Alexander); and Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards) who takes the sitcom cliche of the weird neighbor to impressive new heights. Despite their faults (or perhaps because of them) they're some of the most hilariously watchable characters in television history.
