That ’70s Show star, Topher Grace, has pieced together an epic reunion episode of the Seinfeld TV series. Watch it, below. The video features Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, Michael Richards, Wayne Knight (Newman!), and Cheryl Hines.
Grace culled all the Seinfeld reunion-themed scenes from the seventh season of Larry David’s HBO series, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and edited them into one nine-minute Seinfeld reunion episode. Grace says, “It’s more like a radio play, but if you sew together all the dialogue from audition scenes, read-throughs and rehearsals together… a 9 minute hint at what the plot of a reunion might have been.”
In season seven, the plot of Curb Your Enthusiasm featured Larry David (the real-life inspiration for Jason Alexander’s George Costanza) agreeing to make a Seinfeld reunion show, with the goal of fixing his marriage. He cast Cheryl David (Cheryl Hines) as George Costanza’s ex-wife, Amanda.
While the video quality isn’t top notch, and sometimes features episode stills coupled with audio, there is still a decent plot. Some fans might argue that plot is a better Seinfeld sendoff than the controversial Seinfeld TV series finale, which saw all four main characters tried, convicted, and sentenced to a year in prison, for criminal indifference.

The Seinfeld series aired for nine seasons on NBC, from July 5, 1989 until the finale on May 14, 1998. It lives on in syndicated reruns and all nine seasons are now available with a Hulu+ subscription. The little show about nothing remains wildly popular, and is still in the pubic’s conscience.
