As much as I love Larry David, I doubt that his script for this (Seinfeld) episode is a knowing riff on anything in J.G. Ballard’s canon.

"So says Amy Poehler, and she isn’t alone in thinking Cheers is pretty much perfect.

D is for Dog - Trailer (by RogueArtistsEnsemble)

In the seemingly innocent home of the Rogers family, life is like a 1950s sitcom—or is it? All is not as perfect as it seems. Mr. and Mrs. Rogers and their two darling children, Dick and Jane, must face their history and identity before it is too late, with only mysterious phone calls and a forbidden book as clues. D is for Dog explores the themes of family loyalty and compassion using iconic imagery from 1950s television blended with startling elements of horror and science fiction. Mixing puppetry, live actors, original music and video projection, the play takes audiences from the absurd to the terrifying, and everywhere in-between.
