    Sigh. I forgot to email in my thoughts/questions about the finale. Oh well.

    A thing that dates the show – Jerry and George’s disdain for calling someone on the street on a cell phone vs. calling someone on a land line inside. Even if you don’t want to use your cell phone to call someone, the idea that using it to call someone instead of using a land line is absurd.

    When Elaine is on the phone with Jill and gets another call, why doesn’t she just ignore it? She knows this call with Jill is important. Ah, to live in a time when you had no idea who was calling on the other line.

    A pre-9/11 sign – Kramer is able to easily knock open the cockpit door of the plane.

    Another thing that dates the show – Geraldo being seen as a respected journalist.

    In conclusion, this episode really feels like the show brought in a big name to write the finale but it was someone who wasn’t that familiar with the show. As already discussed by Rob and Akiva, the whole idea of the core-four being punished for their behavior seems antithetical to what the show is all about. It’s very odd that this was written by the co-creator and Executive Producer for most of the show’s run.

    Only one of these left! (sniff, sniff)

    Best series finales – have to have Everybody Loves Raymond on that list, for all the reasons I mentioned in my comments on the previous episode.

    I think Kimbrough is surprised when George spells his name right because most people probably spell it wrong. He may be famous but it’s a name that can be easily misspelled.

    In response to Chester’s question about Jackie making many mistakes in court, Rob suggests he is off his game because of Sidra. But she appears about midway through the trial – Jackie makes these same type of mistakes before he meets her.

    You all missed the point of the HIMYM finale. As the show developed, it was not really about meeting his kid’s mother, so they tied together the beginning and ending in a more logical and heart tugging way.

    I guess you had to be a Long Islander to find “The Hamptons” to be the best Seinfeld.
