Jerry ‘The Young King’ Seinfeld returns to our screens in something as simple as an 8 episode string of clips based around the concept of small-talk, in and out of a car, with a cup of joe to follow.
Its a web-series about
nothing. The series follows a familiar path to the Robert Llewellyn series Carpool from a few years back; just interesting people mooching around in beautiful vintage cars sharing time, jokes, tall stories about this and that and of course, a post-cruise coffee.
Each clip starts with Jerry explaining the history of each vehicle, reading off the cars stats like its Top Trumps for eccentric petrol-heads. Each clip also starts with each cars ignition emittance, and even though im no man racer, theres something special in the sound of ignition charges from a 1970 Dodge Challenger being fired up.
All 8 passengers have their own brand of humour, some of the passengers include Colin Quinn, Ricky Gervais, Brian Regan and Bob Einstein [Marty Funkhouser].
Naturally, seeing Larry sitting uncomfortably in a 1952 Volkswagen Beetle discussing the pressing issues of the day is a treat, but the chemistry between Jerry and Alec Baldwin is on some next ish.
“So you think you are RAPIER that me/ my cell mate in Rahway, he was the RAPIEST”, was a high-light for us…
