Seinfeld (1993)

It's been said that "Seinfeld" is a "show about nothing," but that's not exactly true. "Seinfeld" was about four single friends in New York City -- comic Jerry Seinfeld (played by show creator/comedian Jerry Seinfeld), annoying schlub George Costanza (Jason Alexander), frustrating working gal (and Jerry's ex) Elaine Benes (Julia Louis Dreyfus) and eccentric neighbor Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards). The absurdities of every-day life drove each episode's plot, such as the etiquette of "double dipping," strange bodily functions (as in the famous "The Contest" episode) or finding a parking space in a busy garage. Over the years, the four dealt with crazy boy/girlfriends, almost-weddings, changes in jobs (George worked, for a time, for George Steinbrenner and the New York Yankees) and possible stardom in Hollywood. Many have said that "Seinfeld" was the best sitcom of all time; the show won many Emmys for Best Writing. In typical "Seinfeld" fashion, the final episode in May 1998 found the wacky foursomein jail for a bizarre "good samaritan" law they broke in a small Massachusetts town; jailed for, literally, doing nothing.
