Hearing this, David knew there was no way his fictional avatars would ever survive if such a law would be enacted in America, and so he contrived for them to run afoul of just such legislation in a small Massachusetts town.
Making a Seinfeld" is a two-part documentary, running thirty-three minutes, that goes through the process of putting the show together, from pitch to completion.
The other interesting thing that comes to mind is the protesters. Season 8 If my memory serves, popular opinion was that Seinfeld was not "as good" when Larry David left.

This has given rise to the term "Seinfeld Curse" to describe sitcom failure by an actor following massive success on an ensemble show, a phrase oft-used in reference to Matt LeBlanc's Friends spin-off Joey. When Season 5 is on point, though, it really hits in every manner. The result is devastatingly predictable as George is never one to count on.
