Although the horrible series finale of Seinfeld was more than 12 years ago, the show remains entrenched in our public consciousness. Between the constant re-runs, ubiquitous cultural references and the prominence of Larry David, the risk of Seinfeld fading from our collective memory is slim. And because the series is so fresh in our minds and hearts, it has always been discussed and considered with a certain reverence. Until now. The Jerry Seinfeld Program, created by hilarious geniuses Dan Klein and Arthur Meyer, operates under the premise that Seinfeld has been on the air for 21 years and they have run out of things to joke about. The episodes rarely exceed two minutes and always consist of Jerry and George engaging in absurd banter in Jerry’s kitchen, addressing a range of topics from beans to whores to the existence of God. I’ll refrain from over-explaining at the risk of dampening the show’s magic. It is surreal. It is twisted. It is divine. The Jerry Seinfeld Program. Enjoy.
