Did anyone else find Seinfeld unfunny?

Was it just me or did anybody else find that 'Seinfeld' unfunny? I sat down to watch it one evening to see what all the fuss was about and it was bloody crap, especially that fucking geek with the Eraserhead hairdo

Not only did I not like Seinfeld, but I didn't like Friends either.

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

No.

Most of the UPN sticoms aren't funny either and if I am not mistaken, those shows have mostly black casts.

I loved Seinfeld, I thought it was quite clever and funny, I especially liked Elaine but I thought they were all good.

Friends on the other hand I never caught on to...I never found it to be particularly funny except for the occasional one liner from one of the girls. Apart from that I never saw what the big fuss about it was

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin

How could you not find Seinfeld funny? That and Frasier are my favorite sitcoms ever.

ptkten, I don't know, it didn't make me laugh

Now I find Frasier, so so, well up to the time that Niles wanted to hump Daphne, once he did the series became dull, well for me it did

i was just playing with you, liz. upn has crap shows too... stereotypes really... most of the people i know that watch upn are white and want to be black.

the only good show on tv with a great black cast is the wire.

emptyhead, if you dont find seinfeld funny, what do you find funny?

there was a lot of hype about seinfeld cos it was completely different than the crap sitcoms out there with an all white family with two kids in the burbs. and the point of the show was it had no point. i must say i like curb your enthusiasm better than seinfeld...

I too have no idea what all the fuss is about Seinfeld. Yes, it brought the occasional smile to my face, but nothing more

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

As for Frasier, for a few years previous to this last one there were different writers so the quality dropped for a bit since the old writers have returned it's picked up again. The last episode was one of the funniest I've seen in years.
