Netflix Releases ‘Seinfeld’ Trailer: “This Fall’s Hottest New Show”Netflix released a trailer for the show Seinfeld, on Friday.A company released a two-minute trailer for a series. The series will be on the internet from October 1st.
In the trailer, Netflix calls the show Seinfeld “this fall’s hottest new show.” It also says that it has 180 episodes to watch. That means that other shows don’t exist until they are on Netflix.
Of course, Seinfeld was on TV from 1989 to 1998. It won 10 Emmy Awards and is still watched in syndication. Netflix paid more than $500 million to stream the series. It lost The Office and Friends, but it still has other things.
Most of the show (if not all) is set in New York City and is centered around Jerry, a fictional comedian who is also the protagonist; his best friend George Costanza, a fictional businessman; and Elaine Benes, a fictional waitress. The success of the show led to years of analysis, and it may even be studied in American University courses.
The plot of Seinfeld has been summarized as “the portrait of modern urban life.” It tells the story of four characters, Jerry Seinfeld (a fictional stand-up comedian), George Costanza (Seinfeld’s best friend who is a fictional businessman), Elaine Benes (George’s ex-girlfriend and later Jerry’s girlfriend who is a fictional waitress), and Cosmo Kramer (Jerry’s eccentric neighbor).
Although much time passed since it was on TV, people are still discussing the show. Some have called it “the greatest TV show ever.” One reason for this opinion is that it has stood the test of time due to being about real people in everyday situations. Even though there were other shows like that before Seinfeld came along, none really captured audiences as Seinfeld did.
It also played around with conventions, which helped it be different from other shows. For example, it had an episode about Jerry not being able to get a date with his girlfriend. However, instead of having him meet someone new or talk about dating problems, the next episode had no reference to the first one.
The show was about life in New York City and showed a “slice-of-life” kind of storytelling that often reflects how viewers are feeling.
