Tonight, the last original episode of the immensely popular situation comedy "Seinfeld" will be aired. The end of the "Seinfeld" years has been a topic for discussion among cultural analysts and commentators, trying to explain the show's appeal and what it's brought to popular culture.

NPR's Brooke Gladstone reports.
