The Seinfeld TV Show Has a New Relevance

From a New York Times Reporter’s Notebook by Maya Salam headlined “Year’s Later, ‘Seinfeld’ Resonates”:

Early in the pandemic, I developed a strange habit. Every night, I’d slip my phone under my pillow and listen to an episode (or six) of “Seinfeld” through a few inches of poly-fill stuffing. Though for anyone who knows me, that inclination probably tracks.

I started watching “Seinfeld” when it debuted on NBC in 1989 and never stopped, watching and rewatching every episode relentlessly on various platforms, reading the scripts in my free time and annoyingly inserting quotes into conversation at every chance. (Apologies to all.)
