Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Here's your invitation to 22 original, full-length network episodes of Season 8! Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer return to DVD on June 5 with some of the funniest episodes: muffin tops, Elaine dancing, abstinence and of course yada yada. The deluxe four-disc boxed set is loaded with approximately 13 hours of exclusive special features, including all-new interviews with Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Michael Richards and Jason Alexander.

After seven seasons of groundbreaking comedy, what could possibly be left to accomplish in season 8 for Seinfeld and company, especially in this, the first season without co-creator Larry David at the helm? Plenty, as it turns out. This is the season that gave us some of the most memorable episodes in the entire series, including "The Muffin Tops," "The Bizarro Jerry," and "The Yada Yada," the episode that proved you can "yada yada" anything in life. Fortunately by this point in the series, the comic formula that sustained the show throughout its run had not yet begun to get tired, and the writers proved that they could continue to pull a whole lot of something out of the show about nothing. Case in point: "The English Patient," where they created an entire story line out of Elaine's hatred for the award-winning film. In "The Chicken Roaster," one of Seinfeld's most underappreciated episodes, Kramer switches apartments with Jerry and wages a one-man crusade against a Kenny Rogers' Roasters, only to becomes like Jerry and become undone by Newman. George continues to, well, be George. He habitually shoots himself in the foot as he continues life without Susan, only to find out marrying her would have made him rich ("The Foundation"). And Elaine gets her kicks, literally, horrifying her co-workers with her terrible dancing, spinning moves so bad they've actually become one of the show's most popular punch lines (go on any dance floor and you'll see someone doing "The Elaine" as a joke, it seems). Season 8 also continues the Seinfeld tradition of loading up the DVD sets with plenty of special features, including an illuminating documentary detailing how Jerry juggled his act as star and show-runner after Larry David's departure, and all new interviews with the cast. All in all, it's good stuff for fans, and there's plenty here for the casual viewer to enjoy as well. --Daniel Vancini

"Seinfeld" did a pretty good job rebounding from Larry David's departure from the show. Jerry doesn't have as many segments featured around him this season, possibly because of the stepped up demands on his time behind the camera. However, the ones in which he is featured are very funny. For example, Jerry has a check bounce, and the unfriendly merchant puts the returned check on display in his store. Word gets back to Jerry's parents, and they jump to conclusions and decide that Jerry must be broke. Jerry's dad decides to return to work to help support Jerry. Unfortunately, the job his dad takes is working for Elaine, and the situation doesn't work out for anyone.

George, reeling from the mixed emotions he had at losing Susan at the end of season seven, prepares to go on without her, but finds that he really can't. Instead, Susan's parents start a charitable foundation in her memory and have George installed on the board with a large framed photograph of Susan framed on the wall in the room where the foundation meetings are held. Later in the season, George does meet a woman he is interested in, and she seems to be interested in him. George, always trying to better his position through lying but usually just worsening his lot because of it, does the same thing in this instance. The woman believes George is a tourist from Arkansas, and George decides to continue the deception by faking a move to the city so he can continue the relationship. The way George sees it, if you condense everything he has accomplished in the last ten years into just a few weeks, it seems quite impressive.

Elaine enters an alternate universe when she meets Kevin and his friends, who turn out to be the opposite of Jerry and his friends in every way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Crazy After All These Years May 31, 2007
Format:DVD
It's the first without Larry David, but this eighth season of "Seinfeld" is still worthy. Certainly the departure of its co-creator, executive producer and longtime writer changed the show -- there's a faster pace, more fantasy storylines and more slapstick humor -- but the actors (especially, in this season, Julia Louis Dreyfus) are still so in their zones that every episode is fun to watch.

In fact, many Season Eight episodes are among the show's best ever. "The Little Kicks" features Elaine's infamous dancing. Kramer gets involved in cockfighting in "The Little Jerry." Elaine discovers the menace of muffin tops in, of course, "The Muffin Tops."

Here's the entire Season Eight episode list:
* Episode 1: The Foundation
* Episode 2: The Soul Mate
* Episode 3: The Bizarro Jerry
* Episode 4: The Little Kicks
* Episode 5: The Package
* Episode 6: The Fatigues
* Episode 7: The Checks
* Episode 8: The Chicken Roaster
* Episode 9: The Abstinence
* Episode 10: The Andrea Doria
* Episode 11: The Little Jerry
* Episode 12: The Money
* Episode 13: The Comeback
* Episode 14: The Van Buren Boys
* Episode 15: The Susie
* Episode 16: The Pothole
* Episode 17: The English Patient
* Episode 18: The Nap
* Episode 19: The Yada Yada
* Episode 20: The Millennium
* Episode 21: The Muffin Tops
* Episode 22: The Summer of George

As for bonus features, a documentary short interviews various supporting actors and show execs about the impact of David's departure. As with the DVDs for earlier seasons, there are also episode-specific comments and deleted scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Muffin Top of 'Seinfeld' March 30, 2007
Format:DVD
This show started as an exemplary slow-burner, and the next thing you knew - yada yada yada - it became a cultural phenomenon. There is something you may call a Seinfeld experience, and I want to appraise the 8th installment of it.

The eight season marked two departures: one of the co-creator/scriptwriter/producer Larry David, and second of the show itself into the realm of pure wackiness. The season seven much-maligned finale, 'The Invitations' (S07E22), can be properly understood only in the context of general quality of season eight, which was one of craziness let loose. Susan's death marked the exact moment in which the entire show made 'ping!', and flew way off into the space of absurd. From the word go in 8ht's season's opener, 'The Foundation (S08E01)', there is no way you can relate to the characters as real people. Right until the very last episode they will be first and foremost CHARACTERS - ones we all love and we all laugh our brains out at - but, nonetheless, CHARACTERS. In all of the previous seasons - despite the famous claim that it's all about nothing - there was a sense that IF any of those people encounter a real-life tragedy that touches them personally, they would stop cracking jokes and cry just as you or me would (remember Elaine's tears shed on behalf of the bubble boy...?). 'The Invitations' proved otherwise and the show really became one about nothing: just the four pop-culture characters thrown into wackier and wackier situations. To my mind, this time no Sein-imation is needed, since season 8 (and 9) simply is the live-action equivalent of traditional cartoon.

And what a cartoon it is! One of the benefits of a then well-established mega-popularity of the show is the delight the screenwriters take in self-references.
