Seinfeld cast - classic TV shows of the 1980s‘Doctor Who’ specials and world events
show ‘Seinfeld’ reunion needed more than ever

by John Stahl

I enjoyed the segments involving the “Seinfeld” reunion on recent episodes of the Larry David HBO sitcom “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and found Michael Richards’ panic on finding two black men at his door fall on the floor hilarious. However, I disagree with the statements of David and Seinfeld that reunion specials must be pathetic.

I do agree that such reunions are bad if they center around a big event, such as a character getting married or being elected to political office. However, that does not have to be the case.

The innovative and savvy Desi Arnaz produced a few “I Love Lucy” specials after that show ended. The plots of these shows were simply typical of the series and lacked any major event in the lives of the characters.

More recently, the incredibly awesome David Tennant and the producers of “Doctor Who” gave fans the tremendous gift of two hour-long and one two-hour special to end Tennant’s strong run as The Doctor. The hour-long specials “The Next Doctor” and “The Waters of Mars” are largely simply strong episodes of the series, and “The End of Time” is the same type of epic presentation that is made when the run of any actor who has played The Doctor ends.

The Doctor does not marry a companion, retire to a country cottage in rural England, or form an alliance with the Daleks. He just goes on being the Doctor.

My first side note is that a DVD set of all four specials is being released on February 2; I plan to review it.

My second side note is that I am sorry to have lost out on any chance to be a companion to Tennant, but my guest parking space can easily accommodate the TARDIS if Matt Smith is open to having a male companion.

Returning to “Seinfeld,” I have always wanted to see the reaction of Jerry and the gang to the nonsense that the September 11 attacks has generated. Many of the new security measures have been valid, but I have also had flight attendants physically push me aside at security areas and bring large bottles of water through that screening. I have also wasted a great deal of money on the large pile of duct tape and plastic sheeting in my basement and had to throw out toothpaste on a recent flight.

The fact that the networks showed my beloved supernatural sitcoms in the ‘60s to help ease the national turmoil regarding the Vietnam War also screams out for more “Seinfeld.” I have been joking that the TSA will now bar people from wearing underwear on planes and that photos of celebrities from the new body-scanning security devices will end up on the Internet.

All of this would make great storylines for one or two “Seinfeld” episodes that could air during sweeps.

I can also imagine Elaine having a middle-eastern man bumped from a flight so that she can have an empty seat next to her, George using a prosthetic device to address concern about a body scan revealing his penis, and Kramer winding some wacky way to profit from all this madness.

I would love to hear from anyone else who feels a need for even a little “Seinfeld” in these horribly depressing and bizarre times. My e-mail is tvdvdguy@gmail.com.
