Hot & Heavy: The Elaine Benes Podcast

This episode is chock full of Elaine fun!! JLD is gifted two juicy plots and she does not disappoint with either of them. Between her hunky boyfriend, Tony, with his perfect face and trying to get vengeance on a toilet paper hog, we get so much JLD comedy, I honestly feel spoiled.

Hot & Heavy: The Elaine Benes Podcast

Elaine's dream to date a doctor is questioned since Jerry points out that a podiatrist isn't a real doctor. JLD has some fun moments, but we get too much Latvian Orthodox plot when we could be enjoying some more Elaine with Dr. Foot.

Elaine receives a very offensive gift from Jerry, she offends Frank Costanza by taking his collectible TV Guide, Kramer goes on the offensive with her to talk about his coffee table book idea with her boss and finally... a creep on the subway makes her a bouquet out of a TV guide, not offensive, but certainly weird. JLD is the support character in all of these plots, but she does a fantastic job with plenty of face-acting and fun reactions.

Elaine is dating Joel Rifkin, but not the murderer. She wants him to change his name to OJ, another eventual murderer (allegedly). Jennifer Coolidge makes her television debut on Seinfeld as Jody the Masseuse and it is a treat! This is a very fun episode all around!

Hot & Heavy: The Elaine Benes Podcast

A last minute change in the script reduces Elaine's involvement in the episode to basically nothing. JLD does what she can, but it is sinful how little she is involved in the episode. That being said, our contributor Greg comes up with a brilliant alternative plot that I cannot get out of my head! Enjoy!

Hot & Heavy: The Elaine Benes Podcast

This episode is so f*ckin' good! Elaine puts on 7 pounds eating some frozen yogurt that was advertised as non-fat, but actually has all the fat to make her a whale in the eyes of Kramer and Lloyd Braun. JLD gets a great plot, but not enough of the comedy!

Hot & Heavy: The Elaine Benes Podcast

Elaine's intolerance for a chatty driver pushes her to pretend she's going deaf, but it backfires. JLD does a lot with what she's given in this very funny episode. This is the first episode written by Carol Leifer, one of the few female writers for Seinfeld and it's a classic.

Hot & Heavy: The Elaine Benes Podcast

Elaine doesn't care for an uncut dong which is a very funny plotline, but instead this episode focuses way too much on a pigman. JLD deserved more in The Bris, but at least we learn she had a fancy upbringing on the East Coast! Enjoy!

Elaine cannot stop playing editor, even in her relationship with writer Jake Jarmel. Her criticism about his lack of exclamation point usage causes them to break up. JLD gets solid comedy in this really fun episode!

Hot & Heavy: The Elaine Benes Podcast

We get to meet (possibly) rabid Elaine!! She's hilarious, don't worry. This episode is perfectly balanced between the main 4 in terms of quality of plot and allotment of comedy! JLD really gets to flex her comedy chops and that is when Seinfeld is at it's best in my totally biased opinion.
