As a nerd who’s been taping Seinfeld episodes since its first season, I cannot begin to express my joy at your ”Ultimate Seinfeld Viewer’s Guide” (#381, May 30)! It’s about time somebody created an episode companion for the finest sitcom since I Love Lucy.

Your Seinfeld issue is a genuine collector’s item. Thanks for this true keeper. You neglected to include one very important bit of trivia: In the pilot, Kramer’s name was actually Kessler!

I wanted to let you know that I have been loyally reading EW for a number of years, and I have never enjoyed reading anything as much as your profile of Seinfeld. The issue was flawless (except for the harsh grading of certain classic episodes), and I hope that you continue to do more of these profiles, and thanks again for a great issue.

As an obsessive-compulsive Seinfeld viewer, I was thrilled to see Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer on the cover of EW when I pulled it out of the mailbox. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, there’s a play-by-play of every episode! As far as I’m concerned, ”The Seinfeld Chronicles” gets an A+.

Congratulations, EW, on crafting my favorite issue of your magazine ever (not just for Seinfeld but also for the terrific pieces on the Wizard of Oz/Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon connection, Swingers, etc.).

I absolutely loved your Seinfeld episode guide just as I loved your similar guide for The X-Files. The only frustrating thing is wanting to see such classics as ”The Contest” again! Keep up the good work.

In all the years that I have been in business, I have been called many things: mad financial wizard, flinty, maniacal, tightwad, crafty, loony, finicky, selfish, idiosyncratic, childish, Hitlerish, Snickerish, and, on occasion, pompous. But EW took the cake when you referred to me as a Seinfeld Bit Player.

I’m writing to thank you for Jess Cagle’s extremely complimentary review (”One Singular Sensation”) of the recently published Rent book. I would, however, be remiss if I didn’t state that while I was indeed the art director, Naomi Mizusaki and Rymn Massand were the principal designers on the project.

CORRECTIONS: The character of Jake Jarmel first appeared in episode #65 of Seinfeld (Cover). The online game The Rogue Market was launched before Hollywood Stock Exchange (Multimedia).
