Seinfeld: How It Began

64-minute documentary about how Jerry and Larry David, and the rest of the crew, Michael Richards, Julie Louis Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, got to be television legends. The creativity of Seinfeld & company clashed with the anti-creativity of the Network, and unbelievably, Seinfeld won. The documentary contrasts Larry David’s high emotional upsets with Jerry’s calm centeredness. Not mentioned in the documentary, Jerry Seinfeld started practicing transcendental meditation when he was 18. I’d bet money that Larry David didn’t. Who knows, that combination could have been where the chemistry that created Seinfeld, the show, came from.
