The Seinfeld foursome or the gang on It’s Always Sunny on Philadelphia? Just to make the sides even, we can include …Newman (!!) as part of the Seinfeld crew and make them a quintet. So…which crew are the WORSE bunch of people?
Both sides are composed of selfish, nasty, dysfunctional people who are less like friends and more like people who hang out together because nobody else wants to be around them.
While the Paddy’s Bar gang have objectively done way more horrible things than Jerry on company and on a more frequent basis, they also are basically under-educated, no-nothing slobs without the even marginal self-awareness that Jerry’s crew has. Jerry and company appear to be on a higher rung of the socio-economic ladder. They are apparently better-educated, more successful (well…relatively speaking), and ultimately should know better than to do the things they’ve done.
Jerry serial dates and dumps women for the most ridiculously neurotic reasons (man hands, bad lighting face, etc.) But Dennis is likely a serial killer.
Charley has harassed and stalked the Waitress for years, but George strung along his fiancee Susan (a woman he did NOT want to marry), caused her death by being cheap, and then callously called a woman who detested him and asked her out on a date the day Susan died.
Kramer is a doofus who thinks he’s a stylish hipster. Mac is a doofus who thinks he’s a badass.
Elaine is a bitter serial dater who gets dumped on by the rest of the gang. Sweet Dee is…a bitter serial one-night stander who gets dumped on by the rest of the gang (so, maybe they’re even.)
Frank is vile and loathsome. While Newman is…Newman!!
So who are the worse specimens of humanity?
