    Man I wish I didn’t miss sending feedback into this one. I had been wanting to mention the Tania Patty Hurst thing ever since I heard of it last year. Basically what happened was Patty Hurst was kidnapped by a group of people. Nobody saw her for months until one day when a bank robbery happened, and she could be seen as one of the gunman. It’s one of the earliest and most famous cases of Stockholm Syndrome.

    But that’s not important, the important thing is that The Seinfeld Podcast is now sponsored! The podcast is finally legit!

    The MVP for this week is clearly Rob, because Akiva both insulted MADtv, one of my all time favourite shows, and said that the Atlanta Braves should be contracted, instead of saying they should move to Montreal. Atlanta can say they won 14 straight division titles all they want, but any self respecting baseball fan knows that the Expos won 94 and therefore that means they only won 10 in a row.

    George calling Jerry in a panic and Jerry saying “Who is this? Uncle Leo?” is one of my favourite and most infuriating scenes in the show. It’s infuriating because my dad does this to me if I ever call in a panic and it’s really annoying.

    Can’t wait for next weeks episode, because it is the best Seinfeld episode of all time!

      Craig, I got burned after The Subway with an early deadline. I don’t risk it and I get my e-mails in as soon as I can after an episode recap goes up.

    The reason George hires the cleaners to clean Wilhelm’s office is because George want another shot at them trying to get him to join the cult. He isn’t trying to get anyone else (i.e. Wilhelm) brainwashed.

    I think Jerry gets the ax from the hallway. Don’t some apartment buildings have a fire hose and/or ax in the hallway behind some break-in-case-of-emergency glass?

    I think the show tells us that Bret dies. As the screen freezes we hear the heart monitor flatlining.
