NOTE: Even though this could've gone in Entertainment, I'll put it here for the philosophy bit.

Anyway, Thomas Hibbs, professor of philosophy, has described my favorite show, "Seinfeld", as being nihilistic in nature: http://www.nd.edu...

What say you all?
Think'st thou heaven is such a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

Essentially true. The show is in a sense about nothing and the characters embrace nihilistic perspectives i.e. holding little personal or moral value.
