These would actually work as worthwhile, entertaining Seinfeld episodes. Let's give it a go...
An unknown prankster sent in the plot of a two-part Seinfeld episode to the advice columnist Amy Dickenson. The episode in question is called "The Boyfriend" and just as the prankster writes, it deals with Jerry meeting his sports idol who then goes on to date Elaine.
Amy answered as if it was any other question with a short paragraph that offers solid advice and would have probably cut the end of the episode very short.
She admits on her own website that she missed the joke but she seems pretty good humored about it:
Every once in awhile, I get punked by a villainous, fun-loving reader. I have some affection for these episodes because I often think that if I didn’t actually have a job, punking advice columnists is exactly what I would do with my time. But alas I do have a job and so I am left with the task of sharing my humiliation, as well as trying to enjoy readers’ reactions.
Here's the beginning of the episode in question:
Ever since Hulu slapped every Seinfeld episode up, it seems like the 1990s show has resurged into modern parlance. That prompted YouTuber David Elmaleh to craft another take on what many see as a disappointing finale.
It seems like such an interesting beginning (or second season plot line) to a very different, dark and violent show...
Of course the sequel will be to open a coffee shop in Turkey.
Just a few weeks ago, Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, and Larry David were all spotted hanging around the restaurant made famous by their award winning sitcom. Originally said to be a location for Jerry's web series, he recently (and vaguely) revealed that this secret project will be a Seinfeld reunion of sorts.
After giving an extremely vague interview to WFAN's "Boomer & Carton" show, producer Al Dukes pressed Jerry further which suggested the possibility of this reunion project to air sometime during the Super Bowl.
We thought this day would never come: With a new tagline -- "Soup for you! Soup for everyone!" -- Jason Alexander has partnered with the Original SoupMan as a celebrity spokesman.
"We had one of the greatest episodes of Seinfeld ever, somewhat at his expense," Alexander says. "But now, I get to make amends by helping bring his recipes to everyone."
And just like that, George Costanza and the Soup Nazi have made their peace.
