"How Would You Kill Superman?"

Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee
"How Would You Kill Superman?"
(Sorry, I have not cracked the code to embedding the show here)
In this week's Jerry Seinfeld adventure, Jerry and Patton Oswalt discuss how one might kill Superman while Jerry's borrowed 1981 DeLorean DMC 12 is attended to by the on-call mechanics who have to follow those cars around.

Patton's first acting role was in the Seinfeld episode "The Couch," Season 6, Episode 5 which originally aired on October 27, 1994.

The DeLorean breaks down with engine coolant dripping from the right side exhaust pipe, but Uber comes to the rescue with a 2012 Honda Accord SE, driven by trusty Armenian born driver Uri, to take the stars to their coffee shop of this episode, "The Handsome Coffee Roasters."  The shop is in downtown LA on Mateo, which Oswalt describes as "slowly turning into Brooklyn."  BTW, HCR carries no sweeteners, so remember to bring your own.

The biggest surprise for me in this episode was discovering that Keith Olbermann is back to announcing sports.

The most fun was Jerry asking Patton about the "downtown LA starter kit" which turns out to be the general hipster doofus ensemble that fits into any downtown or campus, from LA to Knoxville: Messenger bag for laptop, goofy looking but expensive sneakers, weird dog, be very white, read Salon.Com, be all about diversity while still being secretly afraid of other races.  No bright colors either.  Pretty much the same sort of person in real life as Elaine's Communist boyfriend character on Seinfeld (Season Six, Episode 10, "The Race").

As usual, a great show.
