Pretty...Pretty...not so good. There is some funny stuff here: the "Friends" parody is spot on and I like that the post-op Danny Pepper has the same voice as Dan the high-talker from "The Pledge Drive" episode of Seinfeld. However, it's pretty thin soup. Webber is good, Bierko is okay and Orlando Jones is funny as a sort of proto-Leon, but this would have been better off as a Curb episode.
"Not everybody is supposed to like it. First of all, a lot of people go and think they're going to see Seinfeld. And it's not Seinfeld; it's different... It's not Seinfeld. He's not there. Jason isn't there. Julia isn't there. Kramer is not there... I don't know what people want. I mean, what's not to like? It's a good story. It's funny. What's the big deal?" –Larry David
