Seinfeld 7×07 — “The Secret Code”: This is one of the few Seinfeld episodes that I’d never seen in its entirety until I bought the DVD box set. The episode wasn’t all that great, but there were a few solid moments. For instance, it’s just like George not to tell his ATM code to anyone, isn’t it? I had to laugh when he even refused to tell Susan. What a freak.
And what kind of bank ATM codes do they have in New York? My ATM code is a 4-digit number. I’ve never had the option to use a word as my code, and I’ve never heard of anybody else being able to use a word either. It’s supposed to be a number. That’s why it’s called a PIN (personal identification number), right?
The Kramer stuff was kind of dumb. He was always my least favorite character, though, so it’s not surprising that his storylines still fail to interest me. He thought he could give better directions to the fire department than the ones they’d been using? That’s pretty silly — though I guess in the days before gps systems were so common, taking shortcuts might have been a bigger issue.
I thought it was totally weird that J. Peterman would want to stick around and have dinner with Jerry and George even after Elaine, their only common bond, bailed. I would never do that if I were in the same situation. Just too awkward!
I think there are like 5 more episodes that I haven’t seen. After that, I’ll start digging into the bonus features and some of my favorites. Can’t wait!
