Watch How It Began - Alternative Versions.
Informative piece about the backgrounds of the legendary TV-show
"Seinfeld" and "How it began," largely told through the eyes of Jerry
Seinfeld and Larry David. The story is well-known by series-fans now,
but it still is a very informative and entertaining document, full of
lively interviews and quotes by all parties involved when the show was
first launched and - as the show itself - very funny.
Coming up with the brilliant idea of "a show about nothing", which
would be used to great advantage in the show "The Pitch" in season 4,
one surely wonders how this show was ever gonna work, but once the
characters were in place, including the character of Elaine (NBC
demanded a female character), all the basic ingredients were in place
for the beginning of a great sitcom.
I certainly wouldn't like to be in the chair of the network executives
deciding what sitcom-ideas to give the greenlight or not. Even an
ardent Seinfeld-lover like me has a little trouble seeing the greatness
in the initial pilot, "Standup". It's just not that great yet. How
could it be? The writing feels a little stiff. George is even more
confident than Jerry (that would change), Kramer's character is called
"Kessler" who is still nothing more than a bum and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss
as Elaine would not make her appearance until the next episode.
Certainly, the original tests results weren't very promising; "Pilot
performance; weak." And the general sentiment of the show being; "Very
New York," and "I think it's too Jewish."
One of the main threads in this "beginning of" is the adversary between
Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David and the network executives, with Larry
David's inflammatory character being particularly problematic. For
instance, he was not allowed at network meetings. When some of the
network executives suggested changing something, he immediately put his
heels in the sand; "Okay, we're not gonna do that. I'm happy to go back
and be a stand-up," with Jerry usually operating as mediator and much
more willing to smoothen things out, along with Castle Rock executives
George Shapiro and Glenn Padnick.
Also included are some hilarious remarks - some unintentionally - by
other parties involved, like Tom Cherones, director on the first four
seasons who dishes up some memories about him reading the scripts and
desperately trying to figure out what this trivial nonsense was all
about: "Who cares? Who cares what lining they use in the jackets, who
cares if they use real turkey in a sandwich? Why -- are --they -- so --
picky? I guess I didn't get it. Fortunately the network guys didn't get
it either, so they left us alone." And Mark Hirschfeld, the casting
director, keeps repeating himself about the casting of George, Kramer
and Elaine: "We read everybody in town for this part."
Also included is some stand-up material from Jerry Seinfeld on the
"Tonight Show" and Michael Richards appearances at Jay Leno as "Dick
Williams, the Fitness Instructor."
