Seinfeld is nonexistant in the UK

Ok guys, I don't get this.

Maybe you've noticed that the British are very proud of their humour, sure why not, it's great. I'd even say that sometimes they look down on humour from other countries, but that's not a shortstorm I wanna kick off, but keep that in mind.

All right, so I grew up on Seinfeld when I was in Canada and goddamn, that shit shaped my life. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels this way. From being a master of your own domain, to faking orgasms, to the soup nazi, airline food, Cosmo Kramer, etc.

If you don't appreciate its humour, you got to at least admit that it has created a legacy.

Right, so now I'm in the UK, and ain't nobody know what a Seinfeld is.

I've seen the show air in Portugal and Germany. Germany, for Christ's sake.

You know what's the worst though? Everybody, and I do mean everybody, watches Friends. I'd even say a good few people praise it.

Come on now, Friends is good enough for the UK, but my home boy Jerry ain't? That is some serious crime right there.

So anyway, what the shit is up with that, Pit?

Seinfeld was only ever on like 10am on channel 4 or late night on some dead-end cable channel when I was growing up.


I have never liked it for all kinds of reasons. I don't care enough about the show to recall them all now. I think the main one is that none of the characters are likeable to me.

Friends was popular because of all the drama and the main characters were generally attractive.

Stupid author of the article =/= invalid study. Study was not done by Gawker.

Less funny and less intelligent.

Go get some rest, because I won't hear someone else complain about sleep deprivation.

So much this. That's why they ended it the way they did.

We put it in the vault. It's all about dat worlds theory. Both nations would suddenly explode if Seinfeld collided into the British spectrum.

Alternatively, you can love them because they are selfish assholes who say what we are thinking (both literally and figuratively).

I have never heard anything funny come out of England.
Ricky Gervais- not funny
UK version of Impractical Jokers is the most pathetic and repulsive shit on TV.
UK version of The Office is garbage.
They aren't funny people.
Butthurt brits, wank your arse in me face, or whatever. I don't give a shit, you know I'm right.
