"2 adults... 1 child"

I'm kind of split over this one. It has great and bad ideas and a mediocre execution.

The good things about this episode come from the George-Susan-Elaine's storyline. At this point, there's no doubt that the George-Susan arc is the best part of this season. Whenever they don't use that, the episode falls flat. Here we get a great side of the long term relationship when Susan starts to invade George's friend zone. So, everything about this story is great.

The problem is the rest. Jerry's story has its fair share of good ideas, with everything concerning the fact he can't make new friends, but the narrative is boring. And the pace is as languid as it can get. You can see they didn't have much material to work with because every scene lingers for too long and nothing substantial happens.

And concerning Kramer's contribution, there are things I like and things I don't like. In the beginning it seems that Kramer we'll go back to have a more related-with-the-gang lifestyle (considering how apart from them he has being from the start of the season). We get a great conversation with Jerry, he actually goes to the movies with him and he gets together with the gang and Susan at the coffee shop (the first time the full gang got together in there). But inevitably, the writers think of something to exclude him from the normal world by giving him a storyline in which he gets his new phone line confused with the movie phone service. And that's a shame.

So, yeah, an episode with good ideas but a turtle pace and an isolated Kramer.
