    Don’t like mangos. Ruin smoothies.

    Hey guys, in terms of Seinfeld podcasts, this was another one. Kidding, but it’s great to hear that you are branching out and doing other podcasts Akiva. I’m not really an NFL fan, but maybe I’ll tune into the Seattle cast. Remember, the Canadian Football League season usually begins the last week of June/first week of July, so when you get to that next year, give an update. CFL is next right?

    It’s too bad you are doing this podcast now, because I so wish you could be doing a Review podcast. The most recent episode had me rolling and LOLing literally. I think I may have found my favourite comedy fetish. Something burning down because a person stupidly starts it, and can’t put it out due to that same stupidity. Between him not being able to get the fire extinguisher, and waddling on his knees because he would rather see his fathers house burn down then give up his review, people thought I was crazy with how hard I was laughing.

    Now to the episode. In my opinion, I appreciate a woman faking it during sex. I view it the other way. They are trying to make it enjoyable. I would rather have that then a woman just lying there like a dead fish.

    The one movie I have ever walked out on is The Hot Chick with Rob Schnieder. I was 12 years old at the time, and even at that age I realized how stupid this movie was. Walked out after 10 minutes.

    I’ll close this out by saying I don’t think you guys were faking it at all while doing this podcast. Hear you next time.

    I think the reason Elaine brings up that Jerry didn’t know that she faked orgasms with him isn’t because she’s being mean – it’s because he had just insulted her by saying that her sex partners were all drunks, so she’s thinking “He’s insulting me in bed? I’m gonna insult him in bed.”

    When George is at dinner with Karen and suggests skipping the movie, he leans towards her and they touch foreheads. He does this twice, and it’s weird. There was a movie, Slapstick of Another Kind, with brother and sister twins who could activate telepathic powers by touching foreheads like this.

    When Elaine reveals that she faked with Jerry, George has some great reactions, but the camera shots of him are closer close-ups than usual.

    Regarding Rob and Akiva’s theory of time operating differently in the Seinfeld universe, this would also explain the speed at which things happened in The Pilot – casting, shooting and then airing of “Jerry”.
