...Why "Seinfeld" Is The Most Villainous Sitcom In Human History
The author adopts a disapproving tone throughout and then ends the article by saying it's a compliment because Seinfeld has made America a "meaner, funnier place". Besides being two-faced, the author's point rather jumps the gun. I don't think any artistic property can make or unmake anything in America. Leave that aside too, the argument itself is facile. The insanity spoken about the character in The Raincoats is a matter of humour not because the show shows a meaner side of America but because it wants to stress how uncommon random kindness has become. So uncommon that it gets laughs.
