The Contest: thursday 3/13 7:30
The Airport: friday 3/14 7:30

I believe The Airport is the one where - I'll spoiler tag it, just to be safe -
Spoiler:
Elaine ends up in coach while Jerry flies first class; Kramer sees a guy who might owe him money; George pisses off a serial killer.

Could be wrong though.

Anyways, thanks for the heads-up. These TBS Seinfeld reruns allow me to triple my daily Seinfeld intake!

They run Seinfeld everyday @ 7:30 and 11 so I have seen both episodes several times. I love The Contest... I laugh my ass off each time.

I think the Junior Mints episode is funnier than the Contest.

They're very refreshing!

Thanks for the heads up. I haven't seen The Airport for quite a while (how I'll never know considering I can watch 4 eps a day if I wish)

The episode where Kramer tests the oil bladder system is probably my favorite of them all FWIW. Jerry's decision of choosing the voice (Helllooooooooooo!) or the girl, George and his private, handicapped bathroom, it's all great

The Strike is my fav my far. I love watching Seinfeld, as every episode is absolutely hilarious. I'd rather watch hours of Seinfeld, old Simpsons, Family Guy, the State and Freaks + Geeks over most of the stuff out there today.

It's a festivus... for the restivus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Airport was on just a week or a week and a half ago. I do believe The Contest was as well (although I would watch this anytime)

What is going on. Are they ever going to show the lesser known episodes?

Question, I saw the contest last night and can someone tell me if this is the plot
Spoiler:
Georges mom catches him masterbating and breaks her back, then the gang tries to see who can go longest with out masterbating, right.
Easily one of the funniest episodes ever.

"The Outing" is great to watch after watching the Contest.

whats the episode of seinfeld where Jerry and Kramer have to switch apartments (I think because of a neon sign that bothers kramer and he cant get any sleep).

That would be the ep where Kenny Rogers Chicken moves in across the street. I'm not sure of the title, though......Seinfeld eps always seem to be titled "The [Something]" - I think this one might be "The Chicken Roaster" (?).
