From Amazon.co.uk

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, Amazon.com

The release of the first three series of Seinfeld on DVD was wonderful. This, though, is even more exciting, as Series 4 is where things completely take off. It's consistently hilarious, even on repeated viewing, and by now the 4 main characters, and particularly our fave hipster dufus Kramer, are all extremely well-drawn and confident. Jerry's arch-nemesis neighbour Newman also starts to make more regular appearances...
If you haven't seen 'The Virgin', 'The Contest' and 'The Bubble Boy' before then quite simply you are yet to experience just how good a half hour (or even a 23 minute) sitcom can be. These are real creative peaks, packed full of memorable lines and moments.
Seinfeld fans out there (and yes, despite what the BBC seemed to believe, we DO exist by the million in the UK), will be happy to know that similar to the first three series on DVD, this one has plenty of extras, which include interviews with the cast, a 20 minute documentary, outtakes and commentaries. The episodes have again been remastered so that they look completely perfect and very sharp and yes, there's audience laughter on the soundtrack - but this has always been present.
Series 4 through to Series 7, which is when (I think) Larry David left are all completely superb and these are the series to get, as they are released one by one, to enjoy the finest sitcom ever made.
Don't hesitate - this will be the best DVD purchase you make in 2005.

This collection starts with a superb exras documentary titled "The Breakthrough Season" and it's clear why.

The show about nothing suddenly exploded out of the restaurant and Jerry's apartment.

Seinfeld had really pretty much passed me by when it was on but having been addicted to Curb I wanted to explore Larry David's original creation.

I'm so glad I did watching all the episodes in order greatly increases the viewing pleasure as jokes about previous episodes would have just drifted over your head this is the reward for loyal fans of the show.

There are 22 episodes on this season and I disagree I don't think there are many weak episodes.

Stand outs are The Contest - still arguably one of the best episodes ever where the four compete to see who can lasr without reliveing themselves first. Kramer walking out of Jerry's apartment to arrive back minutes later and slap his money on the counter is hilarious no matter how many times you watch it.

The Bubble Boy is a superb George episode, The Outing showcases the perfect double act of George and Jerry and shows that by saying the same line again and again it gets funnier.

The Pick with Elaine's releaving Christmas card and The junior Mint are both timeless.

I think though the real star with this series is the locations by releasing Kramer from out of Jerry's flat the series moves up several gears. Whilst the running plot lines of George and Jerry trying to make a show about nothing for NBC and crazy joe hunting Jerry make you want to watch every episode.

While previous seasons had some threads that ran through various episodes (George's job woes, Kramer's jacket, various girlfriends and love interests), Season 4 is the first to have a story line that becomes one of the major focal points of the entire season. That's right, this is the year that Jerry and George pitch their own network sitcom, a remarkably familiar show called "Jerry."

I love when entertainers peel back the curtain and show us the goings-on backstage, and I particularly love it when its television, because the tone is usually far more bitter and caustic than in any other medium. The Seinfeld gang is no less biting when it comes to gnawing on the peccadilloes of the network machine than they are with the idiosyncrasies of everyday life. From the two-part opener in Hollywood through the one-hour finale, "The Pilot," the writers have a blast working over the intricacies of the system. The executives are aloof and strange, completely disconnected from reality, while the actors are...well, less aloof, but still strange and completely disconnected from reality. (Watch for future stars Mariska Hargitay and Jeremy Piven auditioning for Elaine and George. In fact, I could do a whole tangent on actors who many saw for the first time on Seinfeld. This season alone had Teri Hatcher, Megan Mullally, Denise Richards, and Jane Leeves.)

Having these particular episodes on DVD, complete with the usual batch of extras, takes yet another hammer to the fourth wall. Having been watching all the supplements as I've gone through each disc, by the time I got to Season 4, many of the anecdotes and the people featured were already familiar to me. The truth and the fiction is so twisted and bent, there is no longer any sense in separating one from the other.

A must have for anyone on earth. The ultimate series of Seinfeld. Seeing the introduction of Frank and Estelle Costanza (Georges previously unseen and much talked about parents, the most annoyingly perfect comedy couple of all time. With such legendry episodes and characters like the Bubble boy, a foul mouthed youth trapped in a rubber room divide. With many hilarious occurrences such as the obstruction of handicap parking spaces and a chocolate covered mint that finds its way into a abdominal cavity of a hospital patient in surgery this is the perfect way to spend your evening. Genius at it absolute best!!! If you buy anything this year buy this!
