    Akiva’s claim that no babies have been conceived to Star Wars is among his worst calls ever. It’s got nothing to do with Star Wars. I would guess that whatever is the biggest movie each year is also the biggest movie each year for fooling around. Teenagers don’t care what movie is playing. They just want an hour in the dark with each other and no parents around. And not just teenagers! Didn’t Seinfeld itself teach us that people will even fool around during Schindler’s List! Thus I would argue that Star Wars is in the top 5 all time of movies people made babies to, simply because everyone in the late 70s (including those with raging hormones) saw it so many times.

  • Still about 45 minutes until I finish but as an Ithaca College alum and current Brooklyn resident I can say that Seinfeld’s road trip from Ithaca would not make the news (especially hours later) in NYC unless we are assuming that Seinfeld is a big celebrity in this universe.

    As for stations most of our local news came out of either Syracuse or Binghamton. No network affiliates in Ithaca but many locals watch ICTV (Ithaca College Television) which does air on Time Warner Cable.

    To be clear, when I said Rob looked like someone on a box of laundry detergent, I meant his twitter image just looked like a guy on a box of laundry detergent. That’s just what I felt when seeing it.

    I’m starting to think that Sean Falconer is a stats genius. I really hope he is using his powers for good.

    I can’t believe there is still 72 episodes to go. It feels like seasons 1-3 were just breezed through. Probably because there were so few episodes.

    I think the song that plays during the Mr. Pit/Elaine montage is an instrumental version of The Way We Were.

    When Jerry sees the pilot in the audience, I don’t think the pilot is angry or upset about Jerry’s first joke. He is just sitting there and doesn’t appear to be showing any emotion on his face. The joke is that Jerry tells Katie that he doesn’t care if the pilot is in the audience, but when he’s on stage and sees him, he doesn’t know why but it does freak him out.

    At the end of the episode when Jerry sees the pilot in the plane, he is not seeing the Ithaca flight landing – this is a different flight taking off. The Ithaca flight has already landed before Jerry arrives at the airport. Found it very strange that Rob and Akiva would make this mistake.
