While you can’t find the episode on Amazon or iTunes, I’d be remiss not to cover the classic Christmas episode of Seinfeld. Celebrate a Festivus for the rest of us, and watch one of the greatest Christmas TV episodes of all time!
Kramer announces that his 12 year strike from working at H&H Bagels is coming to an end. The minimum wage increase is enough to satisfy his financial needs. Elaine loses out on a free sub sandwich when she writes a fake phone number down on the card after ‘denim vest’ hits on her. Jerry starts dating a woman who only looks beautiful in certain light so he calls her ‘two-faced’ and George tries to give away fake donation cards as Christmas gifts at work. Meanwhile, George’s father revives Festivus, a Christmas Hanukkah joint holiday he created years ago.
Join us tomorrow for a classic holiday episode of Arrested Development and let us know what you thought of “The Strike.”
