    He's a genius and national treasure, imv.

    And to those that said they've never seen a Seinfeld episode. Try it, you'll LOVE them. Give it a chance. Let the taste develop.

    Friends? Not in the same universe as Seinfeld.

    What is so unnerving about the candidacy of Sarah Palin is the degree to which she represents—and her supporters celebrate—the joyful marriage of confidence and ignorance. SAM HARRIS

    •  I tried Allen. I TRIED (0+ / 0-)

      I really tried.

      I REALLY did.

      Man does nothing for me.

      I think he's just plain old era based contextual humor that I don't even see or get.

    •  He is a genius! (4+ / 0-)

      He loves New York City, for one thing. The cinematography in his NYC movies makes the city glow. And listen to the dialogue-so many hysterical lines(often political Kossacks-you'll love them!) and wonderful thoughts about love, death, relationships, etc.  Annie Hall, Manhattan, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Match Point Midnight in Paris(a love letter to another city I love) and Blue Jasmine and Hannah and her sisters are phenomenal. He has written incredible roles for women, which is unfortunately getting to be a rarity among Hollywood scriptwriters. Sit back and give his movies a look-see. Also, he loves the Marx Brothers!
