Seinfeld Episodes That Are Still Relevant Today

 I recently found an article all about episodes of Seinfeld which are still relevant today. Which is an interesting idea. Awhile back I did an article on some of the episodes which have become dated the last thirty years, which can happen. For example “the couch” and that abortion stuff. Who would have guessed that guys line about someday having enough justices on the Supreme Court to change that law would come true?? 

However some episodes remain timeless, even more so. However, I disagreed with some of the choices this author picked as examples. So I decided to do my own list!

Seinfeld was not a show that was so set in its time period that it was instantly dated (Murphy Brown and Will & Grace anyone?). However, thirty years is still a long time and that's gonna make any sitcom seem out of touch. Heck, imagine what Friends would be like today? Still some episodes managed to touch on things so timeless that the episode is still relevant today. Here are ten examples (in broadcast order).

Underrated Trek: Counterpoint (VOY)

Welcome back to Underrated Trek, where I take a special look at Star Trek episodes that I love…which may not be the most popular or even liked by most. Today however I’m gonna do the opposite. I've done two or three of these now on episodes I strongly disagreed with, I mean so much so I refused to watch them again, and today I wanted to discuss one of the biggest examples if this. This episode is considered one of Voyager's finest. Then why is it I can't stand it? The day has finally arrived to give a second chance to.....

Don't get me wrong, I know I can not like it if I choose. But when sooo many people say it's good, I can't help but wonder if I a missing something. Am I?
