Seinfeld At 25: 14 Moments About Nothing



Senfeld-cast-25
The cast of Seinfeld

On July 5, 1989, NBC aired the first episode of Seinfeld (then known as The Seinfeld Chronicles), a television sitcom that hadn't been picked up for the fall season and seemed unlikely to make any sort of dent on history.
Twenty-five years after that broadcast, Seinfeld has become one of the most celebrated TV shows in TV history. Like I Love LucyThe Mary Tyler Moore Show and Cheers,Seinfeld would go on to redefine the sitcom genre, leaving an indelible mark on television as a medium. It is not hyperbolic to say that Seinfeld is one of the most and culturally important comedic works of the last 30 years. It is also not hyperbolic to suggest that without Seinfeld, shows such as FriendsParks and RecreationLouie and even The Big Bang Theory would have a hard time existing.

Much has been written about the history of Seinfeld and its trajectory from summer burn-off to ratings bonanza (check out the extra features on the first few Seinfeld DVD sets), and we won't try to recapture that history here. We also decided to avoid doing a traditional "best of" episode list, because with Seinfeld, choosing what not to include is insanely difficult.
Instead, we decided to round up some of our favorite non-sensical GIFs, YouTube clips and images from the show "about nothing." Of course, in the end, Seinfeld was about everything.
