Why It Rocks
- It has more complex plotting than other shows.
- The idea of a show about nothing is very good and executed well.
- The show is so masterfully written that you can't help but laugh out loud at almost every segment.
- The relationships are good.
- So many funny moments a lot.
- Kramer steals the show.
- Good Characters.
- A lot of the supporting cast members are loosely based off of Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David's real life friends which just makes everything that much funnier.
- Plenty of amazing episodes, The Opposite, The Contest, The Soup Nazi and more.
- Many celebrity sightings.
- Funny theme song that has become an internet meme.
- There was a controversial moment when Kramer accidentally sets fire to the Puerto Rican flag, causing an angry mob of Puerto Ricans, notably Bob and Cedric to chase Kramer until he gets to the apartment. Not just the episode was blamed for the incident, but Kramer said the line, "It's like this every day in Puerto Rico!" and has a negative portrayal of Puerto Ricans. It was banned from syndication until August 2002.
- The series finale was not a good way to end the series.
