    That was pretty cool. I was a big Seinfeld fan and think in retrospect the Elaine character was more than a little underrated. She brought in a lot of Office Space-type satire of the white collar working world from the perspective of a relatively successful person that wouldn’t have made sense for a chronic loser like George. Any time I happen across the syndication I find her stories to remain pretty spot on, even with work remote and ~25 years of technology changes.Report

      Also she, surely, has had the best post-Seinfeld career.Report

        Jerry’s dentist Bryan Cranston had a pretty good run on Malcom in the Middle…Report

          An excellent point, I was too indifferent a Seinfeld fan to even realize. So I shall climb down to Dreyfus having the best post Seinfeld career of the main characters actors.Report

            Yea, she was by far the most successful main character and between Malcom in the Middle and Breaking Bad it’s hard for me to think of any guest/recurring that had more success than Bryan Cranston. A lot of actresses who played Jerry’s girlfriend of the episode (Teri Hatcher, Jennifer Coolidge, Christine Taylor, etc.) went on to other stuff too.

            But in any case I have always found Dreyfus to be among the funniest women I’ve ever seen on tv for her performances on Seinfeld. Also always gave me a chuckle that the character was an Orioles fan, back when that would’ve really ticked off New York sports fans instead of being just sad.Report
