Seinfeld is often lovingly referred to “the show about nothing.” It follows Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) and his friends Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), George (Jason Alexander) and Kramer (Michael Richards) in New York City. They often meet very strange characters and the show is filled with guest star cameos.

For a show about “nothing”, it brought us some hilarious catchphrases. It also won 10 Emmy Awards during its time on NBC. Jerry Seinfeld has been seen on Netflix already, in the series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. In the show, he drives around with celebrities and gets coffee with them. Hilarious antics often ensue.
