“Gone are the episodes of destination coffee-bar stops for decent coffee. So far, this season’s episodes have Seinfeld and his guests and cameras shoot in old-timey diners. In episode three with comedian legend Robert Klein, the pair visit the Landmark Diner in Ossining, NY but don’t even drink Landmark’s coffee. As they hem and haw, they drink from their take-out Starbucks cups they got off camera. Outside food and drink? Anything for his Majesty, King Seinfeld.”
Maybe he's right, but I'm not as bothered by it. The show is as entertaining as ever and still one of my favorite things on the internet. As long as the conversations are interesting and they keep that coffee b-roll footage coming, I'm happy.
In any case, Zachary's article is a fun read and I get the sense he wrote it mostly in good jest. Mostly.
In related news, the latest episode is great, and features Jon Stewart of The Daily Show. I particularly enjoyed this moment at the 8:12 mark, as they were walking through a typical-looking suburban neighborhood:
Jerry: How close is this to how you grew up?
John: Pretty close.
Jerry: Do you wish your kids were growing up like this?
John: No, that's why I've been working so hard.
And while we're on the subject, here are all of my favorite CICGC episodes, in case you've never watched the show and need a place to start:
