No show captured the eccentricities of New York like the Larry David-created sitcom Seinfeld. Helping to define America's view of New Yorkers, the series gained endless fans over its nine season run. Though it wasn't the first show to assert the rudeness of Gotham's citizens, its characters are selfish to a fault--not that there's anything wrong with that. Self-obsessed comedian Jerry Seinfeld is joined in the cast by his neurotic ex-girlfriend, Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus); his chronically lazy pal, George (Jason Alexander); and Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards), who takes the sitcom cliche of the weird neighbor to impressive new heights. Despite their faults (or perhaps because of them), they're some of the most hilariously watchable characters in television history. The entire series is presented here.

Seinfeld was a show that ran from 1990 - 1998 ( 9 seasons ). The show rarely had any sort of storyline in place, and when it did the storyline only ran a few episodes at most. Seinfeld beautifully executed a show basically about NOTHING! That's right. This show is about nothing... otherwise known as "every day life". Throw in some extremely well written comedy and very memorable characters, and it is no surprise that this show is up there as one of the great TV classics of all time. All the characters flow so well together, the most ridiculous things could happen and it is just downright hysterical. One of my personal favorites is when Jerry & the gang meet "Bizarro Jerry" like Superman and Bizarro Superman.
Anyhow, this boxset pays homage to this true classic of a show by going the extra mile with both presentation and quality. There are almost no CONS to this set. The set comes in a large 10.5 inches tall box with a picture of the main cast on the front. Inside the standup case is three items of interest
1. Seinfeld: The Coffee Table Book. As seen in Seinfeld, the epic Coffee Table book about Coffee Tables... this book essentially recreates that moment. It is hardbound book (Faux Leather I believe) with gold leaf and etchings on it. Inside is your complete Episode guide(laminated for protection) & a Full color book containing memorable quotes and moments from each episode in the show. It also contains bio's on the cast and a few extras such as letters to NBC about the show.
2. "The Round-Table" DVD found at the back of the Hardcover book; which is an hour long interview with the cast and creator
3. Faux Leather case for Seasons 1-5 & 6-9
Each disk has a color image of the staring cast on it and is held in a thin plastic disk-holder. The episodes are arranged by chronological order instead of air-date. Each disk contains additional bonus features; bonus features, alternative takes, etc.
As you can see this boxset is truly a COMPLETE edition. There is so much going on here it is amazing. The case and quality of the materials is outside and the set goes above and beyond to satisfy any die-hard fan of the show. The only real negative I see to this entire set is how the DVD's are stored. Each DVD is held in a thin(1/4 inch thick) plastic Disk holder flip book... 8 disks per side. Compared to the rest of the set this just seems very cheap and flimsy; especially after how much quality went into everything else. Despite my concerns, with just a little extra care when removing a disk, the set has held up exceptionally well over the past 2 years I have owned it.
OVERALL this set is just magnificent and happens to be the most beautiful DVD boxset that I own. While the price is a bit steep, I feel that this boxset is worth paying the extra $$ for. It truly is a complete set and does the show justice. 5 stars!!!

I have purchased many complete series sets of other shows and have never, ever seen one of the quality of Seinfeld. Anything you read in the item description praising its construction cannot be written well enough to honestly show its brilliance. The collectors case is made of the sturdiest heavy cardboard and it stands an estimated 11" by 7". It is very classy in pure black with a small photo of the cast embossed in the center of the front. And the title Seinfeld is embossed in bold gold on the side. Turn it to the side and there are three compartments. The long side compartment holds the superb coffee table book and the other two are separate sections that hold cases that contain the episode discs. The first is a trifold case that holds series 1-5 and the second is the same but carries seasons 6-9. There are 32 discs total.
The coffee table book is a beautiful hardback book that is worth much just in itself. It is a 226 page anthology with descriptions of each episode, pictures, quotes and trivia. The facts in this book are amazing and tell why the show made many decisions in plot, casting and plot. It is a dream for any Seinfeld fan. And we also get the bonus disc of the cast reunion. Bottom line is that nothing was spared with this complete series set. It is a true gift to Seinfeld fans. The discs of the series you get are the same you got if you purchased them individually as they were for sale. The unique thing about Seinfeld is that the extras with each season are actually worth viewing. There is a making of documentary of each season, bloopers and very informative and fun features. People who already own the series individually often get angry at having to "double dip" but what this item costs now makes it a no brainer to purchase. As I said the coffeee table book is an expensive item in itself. And series have been on dvd long enough now that people must realize they certainly can purchase each season as it is released but ultimately when the show has run its course there will be a complete series set released.
I cannot praise the Seinfeld Complete Series set enough. it is one of my favorite shows of all time and here it is presented in all its remastered glory with all the Seinfeld trivia and features I could want. And I want to end by noting that the collector's case is so nice that I actually have it displayed on top of a bookcase. It is in no way cheesy but put together as an elegant piece of art. I am so glad that I came to my senses and stopped watching the reruns on tv and invested in this amazing set that I will now have for a lifetime.
Although I'm not a hoarder of box sets, I'll have to say that this one comes across as high quality. The box itself is nice, and the cases the dvds are in are well constructed and thoughtfully designed. All too often I've read reviews of box sets where the box is cheaply designed or it's a challenge getting to the dvds. Everything about this box set makes you feel like you have definitely gotten your money's worth!
Whether or not I'll get around to watching every episode is yet to be determined, but so far it seems pretty likely. If you should decide to buy this box set, know that you are getting something well designed and constructed, so the only question should be is how much Seinfield can you watch?! Enjoy!
