There are few shows whose random plots and iconic characterisations captured a generation like Seinfeld.
Seinfeld gave audiences nine seasons and 180 episodes where main character, Jerry Seinfeld, (played by actor Jerry Seinfeld), navigated every day life as a comedian in New York.
The series delighted in the pettiness of its characters, drew light on every day frustrations and offered an almost endless supply of memorable quotes and situations.
Seinfeld was a ratings hit. Original viewership in the United States went well into the millions with each passing season.

It is therefore understandable that fans were sent into overdrive last week when two former Seinfeld writers told Entertainment Weekly of a few plot lines that never made it past the writers room.
David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer told the publication the now iconic character of the 'Soup Nazi', (Episode Six, Season Seven), was nearly portrayed as being an actual Nazi.
The 'soup nazi' was a character who Jerry and the gang referred to as a 'Nazi' for the rigid rules he set within his soup store.
Mandel told Entertainment Weekly they had joked about a potential end scene that would reveal his character as having genuine connections to the fascist group.
