Your Love for Seinfeld Confuses Me

I've always thought Linda Holmes was a wonderful blogger, a tremendous recapper (back in the day) of Survivor & The Amazing Race, and a wise, funny person who "got" pop culture.

But she exceeded my already lofty expectations with this post. She is so very, very right.
I don't like Seinfeld, I don't miss it, and every time I'm asked to participate in some sort of acknowledgment of its greatness, or its place in the pantheon, I feel myself cringe and lie and say I understand, but I am here to tell you, and then never to be so cowardly again: I don't understand.

You should, of course, read the whole thing.

Same here..It's especially bad when people talk about something that happened in an episode like it is part of our national culture and I pretend to know what they're talking about.
