Critic Reviews for Seinfeld: Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Season 2 improved on the freshman year of Seinfeld in all manner of ways.

July 17, 2018 | Full Review…

The revolution was now rolling, and although the audience would take a little longer to arrive, by the end of this season David and Seinfeld, writing as a team, had found their voice.

September 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Seinfeld, Alexander, Richards, and the every-week-more-marvelous Julia Louis-Dreyfus have come to seem like (1) the best improvisational comedy team now working and (2) folks you'd like to hang out with.

September 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Charles' efforts are more directly strange and outlandish, while David's are observational and more low-key, although they have their own, more concentrated moments of mania and dark humor.

Top Critic

This show is less a sitcom than a social satire, a look at everyday life through slightly skewed eyes that see the humor in life's little problems.

Audience Reviews for Seinfeld: Season 2

Not nearly as good as the stride the series hit during their fourth season, but miles ahead in terms of quality, episodic comedy, and general likability than Season 1.

The laughs continue into Season 2 of Seinfeld as the show beings to expand. Though mainly centered on Jerry, the writers start to explore the other character dynamics, as well as introduce new supporting characters. Also, the series' trademark wit and satiric humor is especially sharp and gets refined. And while every episode isn't a hit, the season delivers such classics as "The Jacket," "The Pony Remark," and "The Chinese Restaurant." The show is still clearly working itself out, but even so, the second season of Seinfeld is a lot of fun.
