At this point, it becomes a little harder to gauge the evolution of the show. With Seinfeld this well nestled in its slot at the top of the TV game, it all becomes rather subjective what is anyone's favorite or least favorite run. I actually think Season 6 is a real high point, getting comfortable with the wilder story lines that had emerged in the previous year and managing to build more solid scripts around them. I think by accepting that the show could go as far as it wanted afforded the writers a certain level of freedom. Thus, there are still episodes that revolve around individual quirks, such as "The Jimmy" where a guy named Jimmy refers to himself in the third person. Yet, next to that, we get Kramer being mistaken for a mentally challenged adult and serenaded by Mel Torme.

Long-running plots in Season 6 include George's ups and downs as a working member of the Yankees organization and his returning independence marred by the separation of his parents, which caused his father to move in with him. This, of course, culminated in "The Fusilli Jerry," when the plans for Frank Costanza and Kramer's invention of the male bra went up in smoke once and for all, with Kramer "stopping short" and Frank hitting that million-to-one shot. Elsewhere, Elaine spends most of the year working for Mr. Pitt (Ian Abercrombie) but ends up meeting J. Peterman (John O'Hurley) for the first time, as well. Likewise, she also has her first period of dating David Puddy (Patrick Warburton), the odd mechanic who plays as some kind of macho antidote to Jerry.

There is also Jerry's continued rivalry with Newman, and the introduction of a new foe, Kenny Bania (Steve Hytner). George buys Jon Voight's car, Poppie (Reni Santoni) pees on Jerry's couch, and Kramer has both his first name revealed at last and meets his idol, Bette Midler. Just to name a few of the more memorable things that happened in Season 6. Every episode has at least one plot thread or concept that became part of the pop culture lexicon. Most shows are lucky to have one a season, but the Seinfeld team was getting it every time out.

Inevitably, perhaps, as Seinfeld passes its 100th episode, with Series 6 the quality doesn't always hit the heights that had been set before. The 'show about nothing' begins to resort to more situation-driven comedy, and Elaine's job working for Mr. Pitt is also a bit too much like those 'trapped' situations that form the basis of so many traditional sitcoms (and vaguely implausible for such a confident character), while two episodes are wasted on one of those 100th episode celebrations that consists of editing together highlights from the previous 99 - this works particularly badly when the sitcom doesn't rely on the 'grandstand' scenes and one-liners that make these things work.

But even a below-par Seinfeld is still a five-star product which I'd recommend to anyone. What other sitcom would make a story out of 're-gifting'? Or someone else taking credit for buying someone a big salad? Or whether soup counts as a meal? Particular highlights here are The Race, The Label Maker, and The Beard - all of which will not only have you in stitches, but also make you in awe of the writers' ability to challenge what a sitcom should be about.

Definitely the best sitcom ever, saw it on BBC2 in the nineties and it is still as fresh and funny today. BBC2 treated it shamefully, putting it on late, taking it off for darts and snooker and not repeating it. Compared with the garbage that passes for sitcom now on BBC there is no comparison.

The 6th season of Seinfeld maybe a step down from the last few seasons, but compared to later seasons in most sitcoms, it is still a great season.

The main stand out episode is 'The Big Salad' where George gets easily offended when he doesn't get the credit for buying Eliane lunch when his new girlfriend hands it to her. Also in 'The Switch' Jerry attempts to pull the infamous roommate switch with his girlfriend and after years of anticipation, Kramer's first name is finally revealed.

One of my favourite seasons of Seinfeld.

Really happy with the price I got it for, the quality of the item was excellent as well.

Absolutely no complains, I'd recommend this to any Seinfeld fan!

This was another excellent season, being the point where the show started having loose overarching plot-lines while retaining the comic genius we all love it for. Most other shows would crumble when using a "writing-a-show-within-a-show" premise, but this one does great things with it, among others. Truly a season to remember.

Comic jewels, perfectly crafted. The Seinfield shows have survived the years and Jerry's loud blazers inact. They are still incredibly funny.

After such an astounding season of seinfeld with regards to season 5 the pressure was on season 6,to be fair i thought the show could cope with such a challenge,sadly i was let down.
The series found a way of looking average for the first time,not every episode of course,far from it but the first disc contained some poor episodes and the introduction of Mr.Pitt as elaines boss was a poor decision as he is a terrible actor and his character is beyond annoying,too eccentric and just badly used.
The four main characters all do well as one would expect and george is better than ever in just being george,clueless and neurotic and incapable of letting things that bother him pass.
The series finds a high on disc two and the one hour best off is not a sham in any way,this show deserves a tribute and that was that,the final disc starts off well with 'the jimmy' being a very strong episode and certainly contender for episode of the series but falls a bit awkwardly with the final two episodes but in between there are sustained laughs and cringe worthy moments but they just dont sparkle like previous series,thankfully the show didnt die on its knees from here onwards ,this just didnt roll with the punches like it should,no real shame in that but thats my review,thanks.
