Editorial Reviews

The fifth season of Seinfeld is without a doubt the series' best. By their fifth year, the Seinfeld gang had ironed out the bumps from the first two seasons, further developing characters. The loyal fan base that had been accumulating over the years was now more or less the entire nation’s viewing audience. The pressure was on to give this new, mega fan base a high dose of their unique, misanthropic comedy, and Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), George (Jason Alexander), Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and Kramer (Michael Richards) delivered in spades. Yes, other seasons may have funnier individual episodes, but as a whole season five consistently delivers the goods, including many of the show's all-time classic episodes. In the season opener, Jerry discovers the secret, sexual power of "The Mango." While vacationing in "The Hamptons" we not only learn that George’s date likes to sunbathe topless in front of his friends, but also that cold water has the power to shrink. In "The Stall’ Elaine is rejected while trying to share toilet paper only to learn that the selfish neighbor is Jerry’s girlfriend. In order to really make a life change, George decides to do "The Opposite" of all his instincts and surprisingly everything in his life falls perfectly into place. And of course, who can forget the ridiculous puffy shirt Kramer’s low-talking girlfriend talks Jerry into wearing on The Today Show. This box set also includes the featurette "Jason+Larry=George" explaining how Jason Alexander embodied Larry David’s alter ego to create George Costanza, plus deleted and behind-the-scenes footage and exclusive stand up footage of Jerry Seinfeld. --Rob Bracco

5.0 out of 5 stars There's Something about Seinfeld November 21, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The laughs just keep coming with "Seinfeld: The Complete Fifth Season". "Seinfeld" follows the mad-cap misadventures of stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld (Himself) and his close group of eccentric friends going through everyday life in New York City. In this season, Jerry becomes the unsuspected spokesperson for a new clothing trend. George (Jason Alexander) uses his marine biologist skills to save the day. Elaine (Julia Louise Dreyfus) discovers a store mannequin that looks like her. Kramer's (Michael Richards) bungling has a profound effect in the mayoral elections of New York City. Created by producer Larry David and star Jerry Seinfeld, "Seinfeld" is the breakthrough award-winning comedy series that became one of the most popular television sitcoms. The fifth season is certainly one of the comedy series' best and features some well developed storylines with clever subplots and hilarious comic situations. The season also includes guest appearances by Courteney Cox, Jon Favreau, Jami Gertz, Al Roker and Rudolph Guiliani. This great box set includes such fun episodes as "The Puffy Shirt", "The Non-Fat Yogurt", "The Dinner Party", "The Hamptons" and "The Opposite".

There is so much to see in "Seinfeld: The Complete Fifth Season" Box Set. All 22 episodes are presented in their original full screen format. The box set contains a carefully detailed picture quality and a clear 2.0 Dolby Digital sound. This 4-Disc collection includes 13 hours of supplemental extras like informative audio commentaries by cast members and crew on selected episodes, "Jason + Larry = George" featurette, deleted scenes, fun outtakes, series promos and exclusive stand-up comedy footage. Overall, "Seinfeld: The Complete Fifth Season" earns an "A".

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than Just a Comedy Series June 17, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you're a T.V. Seinfeld fan you will absolutely love the DVD's. The scenes that are cut to insert commercials by syndicators are restored on the high quality DVD versions. I grew up in the United States and had always liked the series from television. I was married while living/working/studying in China in 2002 and bought the DVD's for my wife on our coming to the United States in 2005. She had never seen Seinfeld before and had never been exposed to this style of humor or the slice of American life that the series presents. We have watched the DVD's over and over again and they never fail to make us laugh and lift our spirits when we've had a bad day. We utilize the closed captioning option and it has been a great help for my wife in acquiring an understanding of casual English usage including slang, and idiom. On a more serious note, owning so many seasons and watching the episodes regularly makes you realize the sad truth that much of American life really is focused on the themes of myopic self-interest presented and ridiculed in this series. I sometimes worry that individuals may actually see the series as a validation of their lack of ethics, morals, and connection with the Creator instead of as a revelation and jabbing at today's inappropriate social dynamics; just as the Archie Bunker/All In the Family series did in the 1970's.
The DVD sets include great special features from "How It Began" to "Making a Seinfeld Episode", deleted scenes, behind the scenes commentary from cast and creators, never-before-seen standup footage of Jerry, original NBC promotional ads and trailers, outtakes and bloopers, and much, much more. It's obvious that a lot of thought and work went into producing the DVD sets and I can't wait until the remaining seasons come out for sale at Amazon.

Seinfeld was one of the funniest shows ever made and even if there were no extras lots of us would still buy the season sets. However it is good to see they are putting a bit more effort into the extras than they previously did.

In season five extras include footage of the puffy shirt going into the Smithsonian. Larry and George where Larry David is compared to the character George. Bloopers is also excellent and very entertaining. The other usual extras are here as well with Inside Look and Deleted Scenes going for longer lengths of time, with the deleted scenes including a lot more of the episode on either side or the scene than was done on former seasons.

Season 5 includes the shrinkage episode where George suffers the indignity of being seen after swimming, and the opposites episode where things start coming together for George when he goes against his natural instincts. The puffy shirt, Pappy not washing his hands before preparing Jerry and his girlfriend's food, the manikin that looks like Elaine and many other classics are all here in Season 5. Like with the other season sets you just have to own them.

Also check out the season sets for Scrubs to see the benchmark for how extras should be done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Brilliant Year September 20, 2005
Thanks to a very strong fourth season, Seinfeld's fifth season saw the show go from a cult phenomenon into an entertainment juggernaut. This year represented the direct middle of the show's 9-year run, and by and large it was excellent. Not quite the equivalent of season 4, but still more than passable.

There's no doubt that the fifth season of Seinfeld ended strong. Three classic episodes close it out: The Fire (with George's hysterical reaction to a fire), The Hamptons (with an ugly baby), and The Opposite, which I think is the show's all-time best episode. What a way to end the season: George in the throes of success, with a new job, apartment and love interest, and Elaine losing all that. The scene where George screams at the thugs in the movie theater is hilarious, although people who have only seen later episodes might wonder what the big deal about George screaming at other people is. At this point, Larry David's onscreen surrogate was known for his inability to let out his anger, which made him more angry. There are great moments all throughout this season: The Puffy Shirt deals with the ramifications of Jerry's decision to wear the titular garment on the Today show, The Marine Biologist has George pretending to be of that profession, and there's the operatic The Barber, which focuses on the much-overlooked relationship between a man and his barber. Any trace of previous insecurity or hesitancy was eliminated: the show went boldly on, carving out an immortal place in pop culture.

Although this was the first season that Seinfeld enjoyed massive popularity, we can now look back historically to see that it was not the show's best (nor its worst). My particular gripe is the episode The Mango. Don't get me wrong, I like the taboo-busting, but I found myself cringing far too often during this episode at things that were supposed to be funny. Your mileage might vary, though. In short, it's worth buying.
