"SeinfeldVision" Season 2, Episode 1

It feels good to laugh - really laugh - again. Welcome back, Liz, Jack and the gang! This episode was a solid start to the new, fought-for season. I wasn't quite over the moon about it (as I am about next week's episode), but it did have some great, great moments. Let's face it, the expectations were high. Will this be Liz's year? The summer sounded promising - quilt, flip-flops in public and all - but the poor gal couldn't even manage a good week. She wants to be over Floyd, but between having to fake a phone survey and spending most of the episode in a wedding dress... she's off to a rough start. Jack is bouncing back from the "secret heart attack" (much more on that next Thursday), but his tempered elation over the "SeinfeldVision" concept put his ticker to an early test. One has to think that NBC really did ponder such a gimmick at some point since the-show-about-nothing's end. Come to think of it, we got a bit of SeinfeldVision tonight, with guest star Jerry. He looked good, though that first elevator scene with Kenneth reminded us that J.S. is not an actor. But the exchanges with Liz over the not-yet-over-him boyfriend? Classic cracklin' Seinfeld. Then there's Jenna. This story - with her "Mystic Pizza: The Musical" weight gain - only gets more play next week. The striped outfit... it didn't work. No. How about this harsh observation from Jack: "She needs to lose 30 or gain 60. Anything else has no place in television." Tracy and his "office wife," Kenneth... I felt like we've seen this shtick before on countless other sitcoms, so it was a bit empty and filled with "easy" jokes. But again, wait until next week! The bullets: " Jack's scary-yet-familiar lineup of "America's Next Top Pirate," "Are You Stronger Than a Dog" and "MILF Island" " Seinfeld interrogated on SVU, chatting with Ando and pondering Deal or No Deal. " Another truthism from Jack: "Women your age are more likely to be mauled at the zoo than get married." " The fact that Tracy ministers to transvestite prostitutes. After all, "You can be a freaky-deak and do data entry." " Separated Tracy fretting, "Who's going to write my blogs?" " Cerie to Liz; "Now I have my something old!" Ouch. " Tracy being unable to sleep "without the sound of the ocean and the smell of bacon." " Kenneth humming the Seinfeld theme - complete with the pops and tssss-es - to Jerry, who flatly responds, "Really?" " Tracy realizing it wasn't a three-way with him, Seinfeld and Elaine Boosler, but "a mirror." " Learning about the secret countries San Borgian and Grenyarnia " "I like Lost. Is that you guys?" " Liz bummed that her seducing Seinfeld is No. 70 on Jack's list. " Catching Liz in the wedding dress, Frank declaring, "The real crazy is in here." " The blatant plugs for Bee Movie, "Opening Nov. 2!" " And lastly, Jerry negotiating Al Roker in a bee costume. show less
