  1. I watched Sunny before watchingh Seinfeld, so throughout my run of the show, I kept noticing just how much Sunny took from Seinfeld in terms of character writing, but also how they managed to jump that up a notch. They argue the same, but Sunny often ends up yelling or insulting each other and I think that's the perfect example of the similarity in both shows.

  2. The circularity is also visible in how it brings even it’s tertiary characters again in subsequent episodes. There are many, but an astounding example is of “Mike” the guy who fought over the parking space with George (in the 1st Season) reappering in the 7th Season!

  3. There are so many good ones that follow this perfect formula. The episode with loyd Braun and the movie theatre was just perfect. I got it from the institute!

  4. You mentioned relateability of the characters. I guess that is why Seinfeld never worked for me. I was unable to relate to these characters. For me, they were simply dumb people acting dumb, and I wasn't (and still am not) interested in that.

  5. Stupendous! Since you did ChalkZone and other cartoons, you should do the award winning Soup2Nuts animated show WordGirl. Includes the voices of Tom Kenny, and Ad Asner The PBS kids video app has footage. The show has retrospective views that fit the content of your amazing channel.

  6. The biggest difference between Seinfeld and Big Bang Theory is that they are designed to appeal to very different audiences. Seinfeld deliberately targeted a more educated and sophisticated demographic while Big Bang just went for the masses in middle America. It wasn't looking to break new ground or push the envelope while Seinfeld very much was trying to reinvent the way sitcoms were done. And it succeeded.
