Actor Topher Grace has given Seinfeld fans something they’ve always wanted: a reunion show!
Well, sort of.
The star of That ’70s Show released a mash-up of scenes from a fictional Seinfeld reunion that featured in season 7 of Curb Your Enthusiasm in 2009.
Grace posted the nearly 10-minute video earlier this week on Facebook, where it had been viewed more than 557,000 times by Friday morning.
The “episode” begins in the usual way, with Jerry Seinfeld doing a short bit of stand-up, before moving to his New York City apartment. The usual cast of characters is there — George, Kramer and Elaine — and Newman even makes a short appearance.
I edited all the Seinfeld scenes from Curb season 7 into one episode. 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.

“I edited all the Seinfeld scenes from Curb season 7 into one episode. It’s more like a radio play, but if you sew together all the dialogue from audition scenes, read-throughs and rehearsals together . . . a nine-minute hint at what the plot of a reunion might have been,” Grace wrote on Facebook.
Fans of Curb will recognize the scenes, but the mash-up can be confusing at moments for anyone that hasn’t followed the show, which follows Seinfeld creator Larry David around as he navigates myriad awkward situations.
One scene — a conversation between George and his wife in the reunion show, Amanda — features an unexplained voice that is not Jason Alexander’s, for example; but that’s because in Curb, the scene is being read during an audition.
But overall, people seem to love the video.
“Dare we say . . . it was more entertaining then the finale,” one person commented on the video. “The only problem, is that it made me miss Seinfeld even more!” another wrote.
