5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD set for great TV show, November 12, 2007
Nice packaging if you are looking for compact design for all the seasons. There is a episode sheet that is included in the coffee table book that lists all the episodes for all the seasons, because the discs are by themselves. The nicely-made coffee table book gives good trivia and facts about each episode and it doesn't have legs to be turned into a coffee table. There is a good documentary on Season 9 disc about how they came to agree to end the Seinfeld show after 9 years, when it was more popular than ever.

Did you know?
The dialog at the start of the very first episode in Season 1 with Jerry talking about the button on George's shirt is the exact same dialog as the last scene in the series final when they are in jail. Good way to end the series....talking about nothing!

5.0 out of 5 stars One dominant era ends as another one begins, November 1, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is the classic tale of the changing of the guard as the seasoned veteran is taken down by the upstart heir apparent to the throne. Sampras owned Wimbledon since '93 and his only loss was to Krajicek in '96, but Federer at the 2001 Wimbledon showed the great potential that he has, but still wouldn't be fully realized until a year later when he won the 2002 Tennis Masters Championship and the rest is history. He has dominated tennis since like no player before him, including Sampras. Nadal has been the only player able to show that Federer is beatable, even if it's only on clay. Sampras was on his way out and would retire the next year at the U.S. Open and Federer was just getting going. Both were at the top of their games on that day during the 4th round of Wimbledon. It was a great match with the classic Sampras serve and volley with Federer showing great poise under pressure which has become his trademark. When you watch Federer or Sampras, you can't tell if they are down or up in the match, they just play with the killer blank face. Sampras has a record 14 Grand Slams with seven of those at Wimbledon and was ranked #1 6 straight years. Federer has 9 slams at 25, 4 straight Wimbledon titles and is the first man in the Open era to win at least 10 titles three straight years in a row. Get the DVD to see history as they will both go down at #1 and #2 in the history of men's tennis. Which order they go is up to you, but there is no debating they are the two greatest ever. Sorry Laver. Sorry Borg. If Agassi didn't lose so many finals to Sampras, he would have went down as #2 behind Federer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good selection of games...but, April 14, 2005
Where is at least one game from the '77 Finals against Portland with the great Walton/Erving matchup? Very surprised they didn't have at a game from the great 1980 Final against LA. But overall it looks like a good compilation especially the Lakers and Celtics rivalries of the early to mid 80's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, lowsy audio, January 28, 2005
The negative comment I have is the audio which was very low and not crisp. I ended up watching the game on the Mardi Gras Miracle Special on the DVD where the video and audio were great. The radio broadcast was a nice addition to the DVD release and probably will remain as the greatest comback ever. Even to be down 9 points with only 2:30 minutes in the game was incredible in iteself. But when you shoot the threes like that, you always have a chance. Hats off to LSU's Clarence Caesar who had one of the best first halfs in a game I have seen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must have for any Celtic fan!!, November 4, 2004
The 5 disc set is well done with (6) great Celtic games in their entirity. Good to see two Celtic-Laker games from the '84 Finals, which was the greatest Finals series ever. Disc 1 has a good overview of the teams and championships from the 50 & 60's and 70's along with a segment on the Celtic-Laker rivalry in the '80's. Disc 2 has season ending compilations programs for the '81, '84 and '86 championship years.

Included:
'69 Finals Game 7 Celtics-Lakers (4th Qtr only)
'76 Finals Game 5 Celtics-Suns (greatest game ever played)
'81 East Conf Final-Game 7 Celtics-Sixers (Celts come back to win after being down 3-1)
'84 Finals Game 4 Celtics-Lakers
'84 Finals Game 7 Celtics-Lakers
'86 Finals Game 4 Celtics-Rockets
'87 East Conf. Finals Game 5 Celtics-Pistons (Bird steals the ball from an Isiah Thomas inbounds)
