5 second review: This is the season that Seinfeld really kicks off. It's the first season the show looks like a 'real' show. I love the way they get hysterical all the time. They flip out like anyone would flip out (or would want to be able to get away with flipping out like). Every character is just perfect.

IMDb score: 8,9/10
Our score: 9/10

Seinfeld Season 2 is... well... really funny

5 second plot: Jerry gets an old lady killed by making a smart ass remark about her pony. George leaves a crazy message on a woman's answering machine and tries to get it erased. He also snaps over a toilet memo at his office and quits his job, only to realize that it might have been a mistake. The gang tries to get a table at a Chinese restaurant.

5 second review: These guys (and girl) get into awkward but every day situations that are simply funny because they point out the obvious. They are like a walking and talking stand up comedy show. They get into these situations because they seem to be the only normal people around.

IMDb score: 8,9/10
