*Sniff* I'm glad that episode is back, I loved it.

Speaking of pulled episodes, has anyone seen the masturbation contest episode of Seinfeld since JFK Jr. died? I'm sure they pulled it for a while, but come to think of it, I haven't seen it once since his death...

I've seen it - that is to say, I've seen the last two minutes of it...which is all the "Seinfeld" I've been watching these days, the bit right before prime time (and the show I tuned in for) starts.
It's strange because my whole life used to revolve around catching these things when they originally aired, but for some reason I can't stand most of them in reruns. Come to think of it, towards the end I was kinda getting tired of the show......hmm.....
My personal opinion is that Seinfeld stuck around two or three years after it was really funny (probably having something to do with the departure of Larry David), and The Simpsons has stuck around much, much longer than that, probably five or six years by now after it peaked (probably having something to do with the departure of Conan O'Brien). I'm not saying it's not funny anymore, but, it sure ain't the same. The NY episode is a perfect example of something that I found to be lame in comparison to the previous standard.
I still don't see the point of not airing those episodes. "Pulling" an episode is blatant use of censorship and is crap. So what's going to be next then, Clinton stubs his toe and they pull all Simpsons episodes making fun of Clinton. For WTC...I can ALMOST understand it, but still...it was a bit ridiculous.

Well, probably being one of the few to see both (I moved from Chicago to Phoenix when I was 12), I will cop out and say both were great. They were both were very smiliar in putting on goofy skits that had some appeal to both kids and adults.
