“Her book, as if she were a marine biologist, is a deep dive Perhaps the highest praise I can give Seinfeldia is that it made me want to buy a loaf of marbled rye and start watching again, from the beginning.” —Dwight Garner, The New York Times Book Review The hilarious behind-the-scenes story of two guys who went out for coffee and dreamed up Seinfeld—the cultural sensation that changed television and bled into the real world, altering the lives of everyone it touched.Comedians Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld never thought anyone would watch their silly little sitcom about a New York comedian sitting around talking to his friends. NBC executives didn’t think anyone would watch either, but they bought it anyway, hiding it away in the TV dead zone of summer. But against all odds, viewers began to watch, first a few and then many, until nine years later nearly forty million Americans were tuning in weekly. In Seinfeldia, acclaimed TV historian and entertainment writer Jennifer Keishin Armstrong celebrates the creators and fans of this American television phenomenon, bringing readers behind-the-scenes of the show while it was on the air and into the world of devotees for whom it never stopped being relevant, a world where the Soup Nazi still spends his days saying “No soup for you!”, Joe Davola gets questioned every day about his sanity, Kenny Kramer makes his living giving tours of New York sights from the show, and fans dress up in Jerry’s famous puffy shirt, dance like Elaine, and imagine plotlines for Seinfeld if it were still on TV.

    It’s Seinfeld! Most of the info was known before but it was a good read and there are a few things I learned while reading the book.

    Just so so Most of the info was already common knowledge to Seinfeld fans. Easy fast read but not much new to take away. Not really worth the time or money. Alot of extraneous material after finale chapter, should have had more info about show episodes.

    Review: Seinfeldia: How a Show About Nothing Changed Everything A serviceable, light read. Various tidbits about the creation of the show, and some of the smaller characters, were interesting. She spent too much time on the many different writers on the show, the details of which were largely indistinguishable. All in all, about what you would expect.

    Review: Seinfeldia: How a Show About Nothing Changed Everything Interesting book and fun trip down memory lane. Wished there was more on-set gossip less about the writers and a LOT less about the online fan groups.
