Jerry Seinfeld’s New Netflix Show Looks Great Except for One Thing


Jerry Seinfeld has a joke in his stand-up routine where he asks “what’s up with Pop Tarts?”

It’s very much a part of Jerry Seinfeld, and it’s pretty funny because a good comedian knows how to spot these weird little cultural things and make the most of them. In this case, the Pop Tart, a breakfast treat that I’ve never found satisfying at all, but something that “can never go stale because it’s never been fresh.”

There is an absurdity to Pop Tart. A bowl of cereal is tastier and just as easy to prepare. There is a lot more variety when it comes to breakfast cereals than Pop Tarts. But for some reason, Pop Tart was a hit, and that’s what Seinfeld’s new Netflix show shows. without freezing explore.

Before we continue, here’s the stand-up bit that Seinfeld essentially based this entire show on:

Seinfeld is not just the star of without freezing but the creator and director has gathered around him an all-star cast including Melissa McCarthy, Bill Burr, James Marsden, Dan Levy, Hugh Grant, Jim Gaffigan, Christian Slater, Jack McBrayer, Sarah Cooper, Adrian Martinez and many more . much more. The “only thing” I’m complaining about is Amy Schumer, who I still find absolutely baffling. Schumer is never particularly funny to me. She was a pest in season 2 of Just murders in the building. She’s just not a very good comedian. She’s one of those celebrities who somehow made it despite being really bad at what she’s supposed to be famous for. Either that or I just don’t fit her particular style of humor.

Still, without freezing seems like a fun ’60s comedy about the intersection of breakfast and capitalism, and how a fairly mediocre and undeniably tasteless food became a huge hit, sort of like most of the biggest pop artists out there. Pop Tart seems very appropriate when you think about it.

Here is the trailer:

without freezing appears on Netflix on May 3.
