In the pilot episode, 'Good News, Bad News', a girl who Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) met on the road comes to stay at his apartment. In 'The Stakeout', Jerry and George (Jason Alexander) stakeout the lobby of the apartment building of a beautiful woman Jerry met at a party. In 'The Robbery', Jerry considers moving after his apartment is burgled. In 'Male Unbonding', Jerry wonders what to do after realising he no longer has anything in common with a tenacious and extremely irritating childhood friend. Jerry and George get some insider information in 'The Stock Tip' - but do they have the mettle it takes to ride the stockmarket's ups and downs? In 'The Ex-Girlfriend', sparks fly between Jerry - and George's ex-girlfriend. In 'The Pony Remark', Jerry's parents come to town for a 50th anniversary party, and Jerry offends the guest of honour by making a comment about children who own ponies. Jerry has a colourful new suit in 'The Jacket'. In 'The Phone Message', George regrets leaving a string of nasty messages on his girlfriend's answering machine. In 'The Apartment', George tests out the 'man with a wedding ring' theory to try to meet more women. In 'The Statue', a statue Jerry finds in a box of things left him by his grandfather causes all kinds of trouble. In 'The Revenge', Jerry plots his revenge on his launderette after $1500 he had stashed in his laundry bag goes missing. In 'The Heart Attack', George ends up in hospital after believing himself to have suffered a heart attack. In 'The Deal', Jerry and Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) discuss whether or not they could ever be more than just friends. In 'The Baby Shower, Elaine asks if she can use Jerry's apartment to hold a baby shower for a friend of hers - with whom George once had the worst date of his life. In 'The Chinese Restaurant', Jerry, Elaine and George head out for dinner at a Chinese restaurant and a movie. In 'The Busboy', George inadvertently causes a busboy to be fired and tries to make amends - with disastrous consequences.

In 'The Dog', Jerry ends up looking after a wayward dog for a fellow airline passenger. In 'The Library', Jerry gets in trouble at the library for a book he took out in 1971 and never returned. In 'The Parking Garage', Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer (Michael Richards) are trying to find their car in a huge multi-storey parking garage. In 'The Café', Jerry makes a suggestion to help a local restaurant drum up a bit more business. In 'The Tape', George is getting excited about a new Chinese cure for baldness. In 'The Nose Job', Kramer tells George's new girlfriend that she has a big nose, and she decides to have a nose job. In 'The Stranded', Jerry and Elaine get stuck at a party when George goes off with an attractive co-worker. In 'The Alternate Side', Jerry's car is stolen, and Kramer gets a line in a Woody Allen film. In 'The Red Dot', Jerry unwittingly causes Elaine's boyfriend to fall off the wagon. In 'The Subway', everyone has their own unusual experience while travelling on the subway. In 'The Pez Dispenser', Jerry makes Elaine laugh during a piano recital by George' girlfriend. In 'The Suicide', Jerry's neighbour attempts suicide - and his girlfriend hits on Jerry when he goes to visit him in hospital. A faulty condom causes problems in 'The Fix-Up'. In 'The Boyfriend (1)', Jerry wants to make a good impression when he meets Keith Hernandez - but Keith is more interested in Elaine. In 'The Boyfriend (2)', Elaine goes off Keith when she realises he is a smoker. In 'The Limo', Jerry and George 'borrow' someone else's limo.

When it first appeared on the scene Seinfeld was something different, 'a comedy about nothing' it was also very funny and light years ahead of other comedy shows. When it finished a few years ago it had only got better.

Centred around Jerry Seinfeld (top stand-up Jerry Seinfeld playing against type)- a stand-up comedian living in New York mulls over the minutiae of the mundane with childhood pal George Kostanza (a short, dum-witted bald man with a chip on his a shoulder), Kramer (the gangly, kooky neighbour who eats Jerry out of house and home) and Elaine (Feisty female & Jerry's Ex who's now part of the gang) in his apartment and the coffee shop. Seinfeld - like most great comedies - also boasts strong background characters such as Jerry's nemesis Newman and particularly both George and Jerry's parents.

The first season shows itself as such, with actors growing into the characters - Jerry in particular as an untrained actor took a season to transfer his on stage persona to the small screen. This is made up for in the quality of the writing and the genius of the plot twists and intricacies. Both the writing and the bizarre plots would be a Seinfeld trademark throughout the following seasons.

This is a genuine treat of a DVD - backed with a smorgasbord of extras (commentaries/out-takes/deleted scenes/Footage of Jerry's stand up material and more) - you must buy this package. Seinfeld is without doubt one of the funniest shows ever. Were it not for The Simpsons there would be no doubt as to the funniest show of the 1990s, that's how good Seinfeld is. And this is the beginning of it all, and its satisfaction guranteed : enjoy.....

Seinfeld is an acquired taste, but oh boy, once you've acquired the taste you will never lose it I promise you. Don't be put off because you hate run-of-the-mill US comedy shows, with the appalling canned laughter and forced gags; Seinfeld has none of these. The studio audience laughter is real and the gags honed to perfection. Instead you have genuine comedy, in the sharp Jewish vein, scripted by people who really cared and acted by one of the best comedy acting teams ever assembled. The chemistry between them is sublime. Unlike most DVD compilations you will find yourself watching these over and over again. Your addiction will be complete.

Should be made compulsory to watch this sitcom - amazing. Hilarious, lovable characters, plots that stretch over several episodes as well as clever and original subplots and catchphrases. LOVE IT. Have all nine seasons on DVD now.

Seinfeld is now considered as America's greatest sitcom, and rightfully so. True, some of the earlier episodes aren't as remembered as the later ones, but these first two seasons still contain several classics.

The standout episode of the first two seasons is 'The Chinese Restaurant' where Jerry, George and Elaine impatiently wait for a table when they go out for a meal, and this entire episode is set in real time. The absence of Kramer while questionable in also understandable after watching the inside look for the episode, but thankfully it doesn't hurt the quality of the episode at all.

When you think of American sitcoms, what springs to mind? Friends, to most people. Now, I have nothing against Friends. Sometimes, however, I do find it a bit wishy washy with all the romance. With Seinfeld, you don't have to worry about all the sentimentality. The characters are likeable enough to make you watch them, but just obnoxious enough that when something doesn't go their way, you don't feel the need to go "Ahhhhhhhh." But just because they don't have the sentiment doesn't mean it's joke, joke, joke, joke. Seinfeld is more subtle. The events could happen (sometimes Friends have ridiculously unplausible plots), and the humour is there where someone would make a joke in reality. Granted, these are very funny people, so these moments aren't in short supply. Also, Jerry is a comedian and so the plots are broken up with excerts from his stand-up routine which are usually about the events of the episode.

It's clever, it's witty and most importantly for me- it could happen (apart from Kramer, whose hilarious ridiculousness is in a class of it's own). It really does have something for everyone. So, don't be a careful "I-might-not-like-it-so-I'll-only-get-the-first-one" shopper (like me); go the whole hog and get the Season 1-3 boxset.

Trust me, it's good.

Only watched this sporadically when it was first on. Never seemed to have a permanent time slot. Looking forward to catching up on the whole series

So the series is technically long gone and buried. I vaguely remembering watching this when it first came out and didn't quite get it. I understood that it was funny but really didn't get it. Now, later in life, I get it.

So it was with great enjoyment that I cruised through the first 2 seasons. I can now see how this became a major TV series and also how it is literally about nothing. The characters are great and work well as a group. It was nice to watch the 2 seasons back to back as you can see the writers starting to hit their stride in the second season.

The actual transfer... well it is an old TV show and therefore doesn't come across all glossy like the shows do these days (read not in HD). But it's good for an old show.

A good way to kill a Friday night in.
