Product Description

SEASON 1 The Seinfeld Chronicles (Pilot) The very first episode. Jerry is ecstatic that a woman he met on the road is coming to stay with him in New York. George and Kramer weigh in on how Jerry should best approach the situation. Male-Unbonding Episode 2 Jerry tries to “break up” with his obnoxious childhood friend but his pathetic weeping leads Jerry to give him another chance. Elaine helps Jerry come up with excuses to avoid him. The Stake Out Episode 3 Jerry meets an attractive woman at a party but by the time she leaves, he has only learned where she works. Jerry stakes out the mystery woman’s office with George so that he can “casually” bump into her. The Robbery Episode 4 Jerry is robbed after Kramer fails to close the apartment door. Elaine talks Jerry into looking at a fabulous apartment in the hopes that she can then have Jerry’s place. Things are further complicated when George decides he wants the new place too. The Stock Tip Episode 5 After George receives a stock tip

From Amazon.co.uk

Seinfeld is widely regarded as one of the finest examples of American sitcoms, and this long-delayed box set goes a long way in demonstrating why. From the first episode of the first season, it hit the ground running with its collection of oddball New Yorkers: There’s stand-up comedian Jerry Seinfeld, who plays himself; Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), his pushy ex-girlfriend; his neurotic loser of a best friend George (Jason Alexander); and Jerry’s wacky neighbour Kramer (Michael Richards).

Co-written and co-created by Seinfeld and Larry David (who later went on to plumb greater depths of misanthropy with Curb Your Enthusiasm), it revolutionised American sitcoms with its cynical and mature comedy, and its ability to find comic gems in the most mundane situations (one classic episode is set entirely in a mall car-park). Seinfeld was, as all involved frequently admitted, a show about nothing. But this extras-laden collection--which features extensive cast and creator commentaries, deleted scenes, trivia tracks, outtakes, interviews and more--is most definitely something. --Ted Kord

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.
