All that's missing from Seinfeld is some human ballast to the frivolity. Jokes about air conditioning in Florida and bathrooms in shopping malls are fine as far as they go. But Seinfeld the character remains curiously weightless and remote. His relationship with Elaine -- once romantic, now platonic -- works only because it avoids all the tough questions. A viewer can relate to Seinfeld in all the little ways but none of the big ones. Which makes him a good once-a-week companion -- but probably not a guy you'd want to help move.
