seinfeld does not belong in that list of shit. i noticed you dismissing it in the cow thread but i said NO CRISPIN IT'S NOT WORTH IT but you've brought this upon yourself.

robot chicken 2 and a half men and to a slightly lesser extent, family guy are all lazy, repetitive shows
there's nothing lazy about seinfeld, especially seasons 2 to 6.

step 2: make it do something adult and contrary to its image (eg. murder, rape, abuse)
