This Week in Milford

May 17, 2019

And yada yada yada.

Not gettin any better folks… I was not a big Seinfeld fan, but it was very well known as a show about nothing. I saw just enough episodes that I kinda get that. They dont really have a plot, its just a half hour of 4 characters screwing around every which way, and the best part, (for me anyway) was Jerrys comedy bits at the beginning and end of each show, where he’d make some vague connection to the action of the show. I remember one episode where he said ” If you’re watching something on TV, you’re missing something else.” Ever since then when I’d be forced to miss some show or game I would remember Jerrys words, and be comforted that nobody can be everywhere all the time. You do what you can, and everything else takes care of itself.

Well I have lost track of who all  these people are. Linda, David, Nancy, Molly…….I can name the Banana Splits easier then these bozos. .Too many characters in 1 plot who intertwine their nonsense about some abstract concept like TCFS. And maybe Linda and David THINK they did something cool. Thats all that counts. I’m just floored that 17-year-olds spend that much time on such BS. By now my friends would forget about the whole thing and be on to something thats more tangible, like what movie is playing or who the Bears should draft. One time my friend was talking about the foosball game he played the night before. 2 days later I brought it up, and he was like – “You’re still on that foosball”. But 2 days isnt like the weeks-long sludge this has become. Its a plot about nothing, and this time there’s no Jerry Seinfeld around to relieve the boredom.

  1. So my real-life son is a junior in high school, and a few weeks ago he went to the prom. And we now have all these wonderful photos of kids ostensibly the same age as the too-cool-for-school gang, and I’m amazed at how young the real-life kids look, and how by comparison all the Milford girls softball team look like they are in their late 30s. Also, how the kids in his age group have incredible stressors and life struggles, this being the semester that can make or break their college applications, and how they would love for the biggest deal facing them these days being who got a POG for their lapel.

    So seriously, with incredible material for the taking that’s facing modern teens, why oh why is this what you come up with? Really? REALLY??

  2. Later Seinfeld seasons had amazing,multiipart interlocking plots. In 20 minutes they’d go from Elaine wanting the “good” chinese food to her pushing a dumpster down the sidewalk & waving to George, who was jackhammering the street & about to hit a water main.

  4. @moon Mullins – agree. My kids aren’t that far from being out of HS and this shit story isn’t close to being realistic from what I’ve seen. Grades and college applications were what was on their mind, not some dumb fuckin button clique

  5. In artillery terms, previous commenters have the problem bracketed. The kids look at least ten years older than high schoolers, but this absurd TCFS thing is something far more likely to be a brief fad among 6th graders. At the very beginning I thought it might be a stab at morale building– you know, make the kid who does something unusual and little known, such as being an accordion champion, appear accomplished and admirable, but now it’s turning into the SOS of exclusiveness among middle schoolers. Not a fan. But I didn’t like Seinfeld, either.
