Plot:  Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, the cast, writers, producers, etc. tell their story on how they helped make SEINFELD, one of the biggest hits in television history.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

I was in college when SEINFELD (1989) aired and I was a fan from the start.  The great thing about is the show kept getting better and better, season after season...until the lull and then it got better again.  The less said about the finale the better.  This is a fun look back at how it all began.  It's a great story and hearing Jerry & Larry tell it is even better.  We get to hear from all of the principal players (still alive at the time this was made) about their thoughts and contributions.  To hear how it went down it's remarkable that the show made it and even more that it became the hit it was.  For as much as I love that show, I've still yet to buy the series on DVD.  I've seen it on Amazon for $60 which is stupendously low for all 9 seasons spread out over 33 discs.  7/5/14 was the 25th anniversary since the pilot aired and now I feel old.
