3.0 out of 5 stars A box set too far
Mostly not funny,and mostly unbelievable. The plots are contrived to the extent of being excruciating. Kramer is still funny but the little guy is way too much in a box set.

5.0 out of 5 stars A comic masterpiece, 1 Oct 2006

This review is from: Seinfeld : Season 7 [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Season 7 of Seinfeld is the last to feature the talents of head writer and series co-creator Larry David, who would go on to find equal critical acclaim in HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm. Therefore, this is a must buy for Seinfeld fans, as while season's 8 and 9 contain great episodes and moments, they lack the bite that Larry David's fevered imagination provided the show.

In season 7, the main subplot is the engagement of ne'er do well George Costanza to ex-girlfriend Susan, a woman whom he accidently got fired from her job at NBC and converted to lesbianism. The impending marriage of this odd couple provides some genius moments, and the show's finale, "The Invitations", contains a surprise twist that provoked controversy when it was first broadcast. There are some standout episodes that have to be seen, including "The Doll", "The Wink" and classic "The Soup Nazi", and, as usual, the rogues' gallery of supporting characters, from Newman and Frank Costanza, to Kenny Bania and J.Peterman, make scene-stealing appearances. The DVD comes jam-packed with special features, including commentaries, deleted scenes, 'notes about nothing', documentaries and the 'Seinimation' segments.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the strongest starts of any Seinfeld series, 2 April 2007
By 
Mr. Paul J. Bradshaw (Midlands, UK) - See all my reviews

This review is from: Seinfeld : Season 7 [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Series 7 has one of the strongest starts of any Seinfeld series - the first five episodes are classics, and in fact critically acclaimed episode 6, The Soup Nazi, is actually quite disappointing in comparison.

As always, the mix of characters is the key here - George's anxiety is upped a notch with his impulsive engagement, and works brilliantly against the relaxed Jerry; Elaine is back on form as a confident woman - deciding whether her date is "spongeworthy" - and there are some great set pieces with Kramer, particularly the sequence of events that end in him striding down the street in classic pimp outfit.

The production of the DVD is first class as usual, with 'Inside Looks', commentaries and deleted scenes for most episodes, along with docs and bloopers. There's one problem: the Inside Look for episode 1 does give away the (brilliant) ending of the series, as it assumes you've already watched it on TV - but that aside this is intelligent, clever, well written and often genre-pushing comedy at its best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't both with this "Exclusive", 30 Dec 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a massive Seinfeld fan and already own all the box sets released so far so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this edition and it's exclusive CD of stand up material. Of course the DVDs are brilliant. This is one of the greatest ever seasons. However I have deducted a star because of the CD. I feel somewhat cheated by Amazon on this as it merely contains an audio track comprising of Jerry's stand up material from the previous seasons. So Amazon have sold me something i already own as an "Exclusive". Don't bother with this edition. Save yourself a fiver and buy the regular box set without the "exclusive free cd".

5.0 out of 5 stars The best comedy just got better each season., 1 Oct 2006
This review is from: Seinfeld : Season 7 [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
This was the final season with Larry David (from Curb Your Enthusiasm), and alongside season 8 this is regarded by many as the pinnacle of the Seinfeld series. There are many superb episodes here such as the Soup Nazi but the season is most noteworthy for the consistently high standard of the episodes. That said, the most controversial episode still doesn't sit too well, with the death of George's fiance treated quite indifferently by the characters. Its quite groundbreaking for a primetime sitcom (although technically Seinfeld was not a sitcom but a series of comedy specials,) but personally the episode is probably a step too far. But as far being a great comedy this season in particular has no low points; every single episode is hilarious.

As with all Seinfeld DVD releases you get a documentary about the show, bloopers, commentaries on certain episodes, unreleseased standup by Mr Seinfeld himself and for many episodes the "inside look", which is a 2-3 minute interview with cast memebers or writers about the actual episode. Also all of the episodes are uncut, meaning that they are slightly longer than the ones that are broadcast on TV (though to be honest I haven't noticed any real differences between the DVD episodes and the aired ones.) If you want to find out even more there are 'notes about nothing' for each episode, which can be turned on to appear on the screen while episodes are playing.

The episodes this season are;

1 the engagement (George gets engaged while Elaine and Kramer kidnap a dog)

2 the postponement

3 the maestro

4 the wink

5 the hot tub

6 the soup nazi

7 the secret code

8 the pool guy

9 the sponge

10 the gum

11 the rye (with the magical horse rusty, and George's stealing parents)

12 the caddy

13 the seven

14 the cadillac (part 1)

15 the cadillac (part 2)

16 the shower head

17 the doll

18 the friar's club

19 the wig master (Kramer wearing the technicolour dreamcoat and being wrongly arrested for being a pimp)

20 the calzone

21 the bottle deposit

22 the bottle deposit

23 the wait out

24 the invitations

thats 24 episodes of comedy gold and it doesn't get much better than this. If you even remotely like comedies or want to see how clever and funny US shows can be (take note Friends) you need to buy this. If you like Seinfeld this is easily one of the best seasons, and its both funny and clever. And unlike most US sitcoms this is not a drama or soap (again take note Friends) and you won't be subjected to any cheesy 'heartwarming' scenes. The characters aren't really that nice, but they are funny and thats what its all about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Less Great - But Still Great, 14 July 2011
By 
Daniel Culbertson (Norwich, Norfolk, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Seinfeld : Season 7 [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Season 7 of Seinfeld was the last season on which Larry David worked, and it's not hard to spot that he was tiring of the grind, and perhaps running out of ideas. The number of classic episodes compared with seasons 3-6 are noticeably down - the only real classics this time out are The Engagement, The Soup Nazi, The Wait Out and The Invitations (which must surely be the most outrageous episode of any mainstream sitcom - and the look on George's face when he's told of Susan's end the most infamous Seinfeld moment).

Despite the drop in quality season 7 does have one huge plus: George's engagement. Watching George squirm, panic and scheme to get out of the hole in which he's found himself is pure joy. It makes the season.

After The Invitations Larry David would leave the show, and it would never be quite the same again. George in particular would lose much of his edge. Still, Larry gave the show 7 seasons - and those seasons will go down in history as the benchmark against which all others sitcoms must be judged... and those others will inevitably fall short.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 3 Sep 2009
By 
Ricardo Pinto "Zarplin" (Cabanas, Portugal) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Seinfeld : Season 7 [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Hi, I'm from Portugal and I bought this product and it's perfect but here was one thing that I was scare about before I purchased it. The missing details on subtitles. This item has almost 15 subtitles (Potugueses included) but theres nothing on the page of the product that says that. This time I was lucky. Please AMAZON, try to put the subtitles details on the products. Not everybody is from an English language country. We need to know if the products have subtitles of our language.

Purchased as a birthday present - the DVD arrived in time and no fault was reported back to me. Seinfeld is a good de-stress sit com with which to chill out.
