A comic masterpiece
on 1 October 2006
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.
