169 Episodes of Seinfeld Ranked
Someone took the time to go through all 169 episodes of Seinfeld to rank them from worst to first. As with any list or any rankings, people will argue placement. This list is no different. I think the biggest problem with this list is probably the methodology used to make the ranking choices. This caused the author to rank some pretty funny episodes much lower than I would have and ranked some much higher than I would have. You won’t be surprised by which episode is #1 for example. They went with the cliche choice that you have heard over and over and over.
At long last, you can clear all those syndicated Seinfeld episodes off your DVR. Following years of speculation about when and where the historic sitcom would arrive online, today it finally became available to stream on Hulu. But with 169* episodes in the Seinfeld archive, it’s understandable if you’re intimidated by the the idea of entering the vault without a guide.
In the interest of both helping novices prioritize and reminding veterans about forgotten jewels, we’ve ranked every episode in the series from worst to best. The ratings are based less on cultural significance — you’ll find many recognizable episodes fairly low on the list — and more on the density and quality of jokes, the inclusion of multiple strong narrative arcs, and, to a lesser extent, how well the comedy and stories have aged.
That said, even the worst (well, maybe the fourth-worst) episode ofSeinfeld is better than most of what you’ll currently find on network TV — and now it’s just a Hulu account away. The bingeing is going to be real, and it’s going to be spectacular.
