Since Seinfeld is Now on Netflix, Should I Watch It?

Should I watch Seinfeld?

I've never seen an episode of Seinfeld, and I'm not ashamed to admit that. It ended its run two years after I was born. And even though it was on Hulu for a while, they're making a bid deal of the fact that it's going to be streaming on Netflix so now I have to ask myself that question when a big show goes to a streaming service.

Just existing in the world you know a fair amount of Seinfeld bits. I know "The Bet", the Soup Nazi, Elaine's dance, "yada yada yada". But it would be interesting to see them in the full context of the episodes and the show. 

I don't know if I would like it because what little I've seen of Jerry Seinfeld's comedy, I'm not the biggest fan. But I love Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfus so maybe I should watch, especially the George and Elaine episodes. 

But it's a sitcom before sitcoms really started serialized storytelling like they do now so maybe I can just watch what are considered the best episodes and not have to start from the beginning. So I may just find a best episodes of Seinfeld list and go from there. That seems like a good game plan.
