Folks, there are two types of people on this tiny blue planet of ours: people who understand that Seinfeld is the greatest sitcom of all-time and absolute idiots who think otherwise who should not be trusted to make even the most basic of life decisions.

Congratulations if you’re in the first category, you have both taste and a consciouses, and condolences if you’re in the second, as you likely need to be neutered and subsequently institutionalized.

Anyway, back to the GOAT.

Released in 1989, Seinfeld — a show that was famous for being “about nothing” — ran for 10 seasons and went on to become one of the most revered television shows of all-time. And over the course of those illustrious 10 seasons, there we dozens upon dozens of classic episodes, from “The Contest” to “The Soup Nazi” to “The Summer of George” and more.

However, with 180 episodes that aired over the course of 10 years, it can be easy to forget some of the underrated gems that popped up during the course of the series. Luckily for us, the official Seinfeld Instagram account held a fan vote to figure out the top 30 episodes of all-time in honor of the show’s 30th anniversary.

The results are quite chalk, but nonetheless, it serves as a reminder of just how truly excellent Seinfeld was.

30. The Serenity Now

29. The Bubble Boy

28. The Limo

27. The Butter Shave

26. The Puffy Shirt

25.The Airport

24. The Race

23. The Summer of George

22. The Libray

21. The Yada Yada

20. The Betrayal

19. The Dinner Party

18. The Outing

17. The Switch

16. The Fire

15. The Little Kicks

14. The Junior Mint

13. The Rye

12. The Parking Garage

11. The Gym

10. The Hamptons

9. The Chinese Restaurant

8. The Chicken Roaster

7. The Strike

6. The Boyfriend

5. The Merv Griffin Show

4. The Opposite

3. The Marine Biologist

2. The Soup Nazi

1. The Contest

While you won’t catch me complaining about any of the entries on this list, I do find myself disappointed that “The Parking Garage” didn’t crack the Top 10, as that was easily my favorite episode while growing up.

Still, a Top 5 of “The Merv Griffin Show”, “The Opposite”, “The Marine Biologist”, “The Soup Nazi”, and “The Contest” is an absolutely perfect murderer’s row of episodes.
