NBC Will Have to Subscribe to HBO for a Seinfeld Reunion

Pictured on the cover of EW is their "reunion exclusive" portrait of the stars of Seinfeld, that '90s-defining sitcom about a conniving, corpulent mailman and the neighbors who'd continually foil his schemes. Starting in the third episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm's seventh season, and continuing through to its tenth, the reunion arc somehow figures into a plotline in which "Larry attempts to get [Cheryl Hines] back." Said Michael Richards -- arguably the most comeback-needy of the series's core quartet -- of revisiting the twitchy character that made him a star, "I'd always kept Kramer's shoes. Once I got those shoes on, and I'm standing behind the door of Jerry's apartment, I was ready." Julia Louis-Dreyfus, thankfully, made no similar statement about having fallen with ease back into her Elaine role after slipping in the iconic prophylactic gelatin sponge she'd held on to all these years.

    Zzzzzz. For a show that was touted as "unique" and "creative," this reunion attempt reeks of stale, re-hashed desperation. And I'll bet Richards kept those shoes!

    The headline's hilarious, there's no way NBC can afford to subscribe to HBO.

    Well, Michael Richards has an awful lot of race-bating to overcome before he can have a comeback.

    In the above photo, Mr. David appears to be "Master of His Domain".

    EW, indeed.

    I love the look of genuine hilarity of the faces of the Seinfeld cast. (Although Jerry looks like he should be on the next Scary Movie poster.)
