Product Description

Match Generic


It's hard to believe, but for the first three seasons nobody really knew that Seinfeld was about, well, you know. It wasn't until season 4--unleashed here in a four-disc set that's equal in scope, quality, and quantity of bonus material to its predecessors--that the show really became something. In a series which can claim every installment as classic, the two-parter on disc 1 titled "The Pitch/The Ticket" truly stands out as a defining episode and, in retrospect, marked Seinfeld 4 as the breakthrough season. It's the one where (fake) NBC executives express their interest in working with Jerry Seinfeld on a TV show, then moves to the who's-on-first shtick of George successfully pitching Jerry on creating "a show about nothing." Scattered throughout the discs in commentaries by cast and creators and in numerous "Inside Look" documentaries, nearly everyone expresses some anxiety about the season having a story "arc" depicting Jerry and his "real" life becoming a sitcom. The show had been only marginally successful up to that point anyway, and with the edict, "no hugging, no learning," still in place, maybe messing with nothing was a bad idea. What makes the arc so arch is the self-reflexive way it details the reality of Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David coming up with the concept and pitching it to (real) NBC executives as a show that really was about, well, you know. In one of the many informally informative interview segments, Jerry remembers hitting a stride during this time when a lot of crazy ideas started to make sense. "Everything was just a wild guess," he says, "and it takes a while to get confident that you're guessing pretty good. I think sometime in season 4 we realized we were guessing pretty good." Oh, that we could all be so good at nothing.

Season 4 also gave us the episodes "The Bubble Boy" ("He lives in a bubble!"), "The Pick" ("There was no pick!"), and, perhaps most memorably, "The Contest." Recalling how nervous he thought NBC might be about a show based on how long a person can remain--ahem--master of his domain, Larry David says that he kept the idea hidden for a long time. He may have had NBC sweating, but the episode goes by without anyone uttering the word that it's really about. The curmudgeonly David also observes that another famous season 4 episode, "The Outing," only made it on the air due to a network "note" about making sure it wouldn't be offensive to homosexuals. Hence we have the addition of another standard to the Seinfeld lexicon of American pop culture: "Not that there's anything wrong with that!" Not only wasn't there anything wrong with it, the episode won a GLAAD Media Award. Season 4 also brought Seinfeldits first Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series. Stay tuned for season 5 (and a move to the coveted Thursday-at-9 slot) when the volcano we now know was always brewing really blew its comedic top. --Ted Fry

By Tim Janson HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 8, 2005
Format: DVD
I'm not one of those Seinfeld fans who saw a big decline in the show as the season's came and went. I loved the final couple of seasons just as much as any. Only the first season, where they were still working with the formula to get it right, was a bit weak. That said, if I was on a desert Island and could have only one season of Seinfeld to own and watch, it would be season four. It not only had many great episodes but it had many that would go down as classics, not only of Seinfeld, but all-time sit-com classics.

There are so many great episodes from season four but here are my favorites:

"The Wallet" & "The Watch" this was a two-parter as Jerry's parents come to town so Morty can see a back specialist. Morty is up in arms when he thinks his wallet is stolen in the doctor's office. Meanwhile Unlce Leo finds a watch that Jerry threw in the trash, a watch his parents gave him and Jerry tries to buy it back.

"The Bubble Boy" Jerry, Elaine, George and Susan are going up to Susan's father's cabin. They are asked to see a local fan named "the bubble boy" who lives in a plastic bubble ala John Travolta in the movie. George gets there first and plays a game of Trivial Pursuit with the bubble boy and they get into a fight. Kramer accidently burns down the cabin. One of the all-time great episodes!

"The Contest" Maybe the greatest episode ever...George is caught pleasuring himself by his mother who throws out her back and lands in the hospital. George, jerry, Kramer and Elaine all bet to see who can go the longest without doing...that...Later appearing on David On the Letterman show, Julia Louis-Dreyfus said that the network censors would not allow them to say "masturbation".

Just for the Junior Mint episode alone, but the contest to see who can go the longest without, you know, is fabulous. I LOVE George's mother; how I love seeing her in her hospital bed, berating him for yet another transgression, (What is it with you; who are you; I don't know you any more!") and George's reaction to his mother's next door neighbor-patient when she gets a spongebath is hilarious (and in another show, a young guy gets a spongebath, equally hilarious), and of course, the Trip...IMHO, George's parents are one of the best aspects of this fantastiuc show; I enjoy Jerry's parents also, his father at the doctor's office when he is fillling out the patient information form and gets to the STD part is a riot; he says "That's it! They got my name and my phone number; that's it!" And later in the room where he waits for the doctor when he thinks someone stole his wallet...well, you just have to see it. I was so upset when Seinfeld went off the air, but now I can watch these classics over and over and over again whenever I want and it really doesn't get any better than that. And the peripheral characters are so good you want them to be a regular part of the show; e.g, the grumpy old man Jerry volunteered to take care of; the Rabbi in Elaine's building; George Steinbrenner; Tim Whatley, the weird dentist; Elaine's roommate; and my favorite of all, Jimmy...Jimmy's DOWN; Jimmy's got a compound fracture! Thank God for DVD!

Looking down from this high perch in 2005 Seinfeld's cosmic success is easy to take for granted but as I watched the behind the scenes material and episodes (The Bubble Boy, The Contest, The Junior Mint to name but a few classics) included in season 4, I was reminded of how risky and cutting edge Seinfeld was way back in the "olden days." The fact that the one liners and gags have held up and stayed so fresh over the years is an amazing testament to the creative instincts of Larry David, Jerry Seinfeld and the entire cast and crew. And what other real life sitcom creators could have been so incredibly naive as to actually do a season story arc about producing a fictitious show about the show we were already watching and then to come right out and admit that it was in fact; "...a show about nothing!" In essence the emperor had no cloths and we loved it!
To borrow a phrase from Banya, Season 4 is "Gold Jerry... gold!" and truly marks the moment in the shows history when everyone hit their stride like a runner finding their second wind not to mention the fact that we get more of Jerry and George's parents, Susan, Uncle Leo, Newman, Del Boca Vista... more everything! The chemistry and craft seems so effortless and magical it's hard to imagine anything like it happening again. Simply put Seinfeld redefined the sitcom and defined water-cooler chat without anyone getting pregnant, suffering from cancer, running for politics or getting naked (although they sure talked about it a lot) and the credit goes to a group of people who were able to throw caution to the wind rather than holding their collective fingers into the air to see which way the network trends were blowing.

Every volume of Seinfeld I have purchased new from a store has been in a slim, regular DVD sized case. I assumed when this product was listed as "new" and fulfilled from Amazon, it would be the slim case and NOT the cardboard bulky box set, which is almost 3 times the width of the other Seinfeld seasons. I looked back and nowhere on Amazon is there any description differentiating the two very different products. The box sets are clearly not "new," even if it was still in its original packaging. I can no longer trust the descriptions of anything I read on Amazon fulfilled items. I was not pleased with my purchase.
