Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Nothing? Seinfeld is a show about everything! It's about the appeal of the posse and coma etiquette. It's about importing and exporting. It's about sneaking a peek, and seeing the baby. It's about this, that, and the other. TV Guide ranked Seinfeld the best TV series of all time. It has become the master of its syndication domain. Its most devoted fans can quote each episode chapter and verse; their absorption of each scene's minutiae anything but a trivial pursuit. With such fervent devotion to the show, and demand for its DVD release, series creators Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David could have easily just OK'd a bare-bones set containing nothing but the episodes. Not that there would have been anything wrong with that, but instead, the creative team came together to create extensive and encyclopedic features that make this four-disc set buy-worthy. The candid and revealing audio commentaries and interviews, deleted scenes and original episode promos, and optional "Notes About Nothing" pop-ups are as irresistible as a Drake's coffee cake.

It's always fun and instructive to return to the humble beginnings of a series that became a pop culture benchmark. Here are Kramer's first not-so-grand entrance, Jerry's first contemptuous "Hello, Newman," and Elaine's first "Get Out!" shove. But what is most revelatory about these episodes from the first two seasons is what Jason Alexander, during his commentary for the episode "The Revenge," calls a "sweet quality" that somehow redeems these characters' more base instincts. Consider the scene in which Jerry gives a freshly unemployed George some career guidance, or Jerry and Elaine's palpably affectionate banter throughout. The "Inside Look" episode intros offer fascinating insights into this singular show that subverted sitcom convention with such now-classic episodes as "The Chinese Restaurant," in which Jerry, George, and Elaine wait in vain for a table. We learn, for example, why movie tough guy Lawrence Tierney, who guest starred in "The Jacket," never reprised his role as Elaine's father. All of this, of course, is yadda yadda yadda to Seinfeld fans, whose patience for the show's DVD debut has been amply rewarded. As Elaine screams in the third-season episode, "The Subway," "It's not nothing, it's something!" --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

SEASON 1 The Seinfeld Chronicles (Pilot) The very first episode. Jerry is ecstatic that a woman he met on the road is coming to stay with him in New York. George and Kramer weigh in on how Jerry should best approach the situation. Male-Unbonding Episode 2 Jerry tries to “break up” with his obnoxious childhood friend but his pathetic weeping leads Jerry to give him another chance. Elaine helps Jerry come up with excuses to avoid him. The Stake Out Episode 3 Jerry meets an attractive woman at a party but by the time she leaves, he has only learned where she works. Jerry stakes out the mystery woman’s office with George so that he can “casually” bump into her. The Robbery Episode 4 Jerry is robbed after Kramer fails to close the apartment door. Elaine talks Jerry into looking at a fabulous apartment in the hopes that she can then have Jerry’s place. Things are further complicated when George decides he wants the new place too. The Stock Tip Episode 5 After George receives a stock tip

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD easter eggs November 26, 2004
Format:DVD
hey i found some easter eggs on volume one and was wondering if anyone else found different ones other then these :

Camera testing for lighting and coloring.

On disc 1, go to the extras section and press up twice to highlight the chili. Press enter to view 3 minutes of Camera tests for lighting and coloring of the apartment once the show was picked up after the pilot with commentary by i think the show director and maybe the set director i dont know u will just ahve to check.

One on disc 3 of Volume 1, go to Extras, then click on Inside Looks and one of the Chinese crackers becomes active, click on it and you see an Inside look on a discarded episode, "The Bet"

Then on disc 4 of Volume 1, go to Set Up, a stain from George's hospital food is active, click on it and you see a comparison of Seinfeld unrestored and remastered. Haven't found any on disc 2 yet, or any in volume 3.

please tell me if u can find any other ones!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seinfeld for the people, not the networks July 8, 2002
Format:DVD
I want Seinfeld on DVD. Why? Because I cant see it on TV any more. In Australia, no free-to-air network now shows the series, it is being shown on Pay-TV, which 1 million out of the 20 million people in this country have access to (I'm one that doesn't have access to it). I understand ours is a smaller market and will probably make less money than the US market, but Seinfeld has an unbelievably huge following in this country. If Jerry Seinfeld, and the owners of the series want to make real money in Australia, stop showing it through FOXTel, and release it on DVD to EVERYBODY, people want to watch, and have access to their favourite episodes.. The special features could be amazing, with commentries, outtakes, deleted scenes, etc... It will make many people happy, and as a by-product, make you $$$.. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Sell this DVD set at the JERK STORE!! December 2, 2002
By Jon ...
Format:DVD
Where to even begin...... Firstly, I think whoever is in charge of making the executive decision to get all 9 beloved seasons on DVD and still has not done so should be deported to India with BaBoo Baut!! Seinfeld is undisputedly the greatest TV series ever made! My entire family adores the show.... my efforts, along with my mother and brother taped every single episode on VHS totalling 18 VHS tapes. I watch 2-3 episodes every night before I go to sleep!!
Now... I know what your thinking.... "if he has every episode on VHS, why is he so adimant about getting it put on DVD?!?" Well, I will tell you why!! First, the quality between DVD and VHS is like that of cassette tapes and CD's..... there simply is no comparison. VHS tapes eventually get worn and will not play any longer... the quality has already been substantially reduced from watching them so many times! Second, I have no idea what episode I am about to watch whereas if it was on DVD.... I could go right to whatever show I wanted to see!! And last and most certainly not least.... all of the great extras and bonus material they could put on the DVD collection!!
I have put a lot of thought into this and I would be willing to pay up to [$$$] for all 9 seasons of Seinfeld on DVD.... all 9 seasons... immortalized till the end of time so that all may see the best show ever made!!
Well, I think I have made my point.... get with it you white-collared pencil necks and release the greatest show ever on DVD!! I go into Best Buy and every crappy show on the planet is now on DVD from Malcolm in the Middle to Friends! Every great series is for some reason not being put on DVD?!?

5.0 out of 5 stars Something about nothing November 24, 2004
Format:DVD
Get Out! "Seinfeld" on DVD? He's already the Master of His Domain why would it need to be released it on DVD? Because the fans demanded it and justice can only be served if one of the most popular and best sitcoms can be viewed, uncut and with lots and lots of background material on this groundbreaking show. Just a warning this review is for the gift set which includes the salt shakers, playing cards and a copy of one of Larry David's scripts. That's the main difference between this gift set (that and the fact that it includes the two boxed sets including the first three "seasons"). The first season consisted of five episodes (including the pilot)while the second consisted of 13 episodes as the network decided to commit to the show when the show received solid ratings. The third season consists of 22 episodes. All the episodes are the uncut original episodes that aired on NBC (most of the episodes in syndication are usually trimmed by a minute or two). The boxed set has a slipover case. Inside the inside slipcase each disc is nicely housed in individual slim DVD holders. 15 commentary tracks (if I'm counting correctly)for both sets. Deleted scenes, unused stand up bits, promos, featurettes make this a generous set particulary when compared to the bare bones releases for other similar (although not as funny) series.

When "The Seinfeld Chronicles" (the original title) first aired as a limited series no one suspected it would be the next big thing. Seinfeld and his collaborator/co-creator/co-producer and frequent co-writer Larry David pushed TV comedy to its boundaries and then demolished them. They'd then establish new boundaries and demolish those. That's groundbreaking, important television. It's also what made "Seinfeld" unique. Sure, "Who's The Boss?
