Product Description

Here's your invitation to 22 original, full-length network episodes of Season 8! Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer return to DVD on June 5 with some of the funniest episodes: muffin tops, Elaine dancing, abstinence and of course yada yada. The deluxe four-disc boxed set is loaded with approximately 13 hours of exclusive special features, including all-new interviews with Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Michael Richards and Jason Alexander.


After seven seasons of groundbreaking comedy, what could possibly be left to accomplish in Season 8 for Seinfeld and company, especially in this, the first season without co-creator Larry David at the helm? Plenty, as it turns out. This is the season that gave us some of the most memorable episodes in the entire series, including "The Muffin Tops," "The Bizarro Jerry," and "The Yada Yada," the episode that proved you can "yada yada" anything in life. Fortunately by this point in the series, the comic formula that sustained the show throughout its run had not yet begun to get tired, and the writers proved that they could continue to pull a whole lot of something out of the show about nothing. Case in point: "The English Patient," where they created an entire story line out of Elaine's hatred for the award-winning film. In "The Chicken Roaster," one of Seinfeld's most under-appreciated episodes, Kramer switches apartments with Jerry and wages a one-man crusade against a Kenny Rogers' Roasters, only to become like Jerry and become undone by Newman. George continues to, well, be George. He habitually shoots himself in the foot as he continues life without Susan, only to find out marrying her would have made him rich ("The Foundation"). And Elaine gets her kicks, literally, horrifying her co-workers with her terrible dancing, spinning moves so bad they've actually become one of the show's most popular punch lines. Season 8 also continues the Seinfeld tradition of loading up the DVD sets with plenty of special features, including an illuminating documentary detailing how Jerry juggled his act as star and show-runner after Larry David's departure, and all new interviews with the cast. All in all, it's good stuff for fans, and there's plenty here for the casual viewer to enjoy as well. --Daniel Vancini

Jerry Seinfeld is back in the title role, and joining him are his neurotic ex-girlfriend, Elaine; his chronically lazy pal, George; and Cosmo Kramer, a person who takes the weird neighbour character to impressive new heights.

Format: DVD
The richness of season 8 comes from familiarity with what has gone before and how the characters have been established. This is more of the entertaining series of contrived events we've come to know and love, but here it's taken up a notch in the surreality stakes and plays brilliantly with our attachment to Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer.

Perhaps due to Larry David's departure from the show, this season moves off in a new direction: a slightly wackier one. Although it often annoyed me in other Seinfeld seasons how episodes would feel contrived with everything being tweaked annoyingly conveniently for supposed maximum comedy effect (ruined if it's too contrived, because you can see it all coming), in this season the unapologetic and knowing way that the episodes play out put a new spin on things that brought the humour back.

Like all Seinfeld, it's essential viewing, far, far, ahead of almost all American sitcom competition but don't worry that this is just more of the same - although by this point the show had been spun out for 8 seasons, the makers treat the viewer to a more personal, in-jokey and silly variation on the classic formula, and the show is all the better for it.

My favourite episode in this season is probably no.4, "The Little Kicks" where Kramer and Jerry catch a film with a friend who makes bootleg tapes (amusing) and Elaine (adorable as ever) does a hilarious dance which has social repercussions.

This probably isn't my favourite season due to a lot of the best ideas seeming to have been used already but the creators have certainly outdone themselves by refusing to allow Seinfeld to go stale and still keep energy in the show up to season 8.

Too right, what the last reviewer said. In fact even though it isn't my favourite season, I still think it's worth 5 stars. My favourite episode was "The Fatigues", although I think this was a duff title, and "The Mentor" would have been a thousand times better. I wonder how much people would have made of the supposed differences in Season 8 if Larry David's departure had been kept secret. The oldest review on here gives the impression that common-sense reality is being left behind for the first time. What about Kramer and the "pig-man" many, many moons ago? Well established characters like Steinbrenner and Peterman? Or episodes like "The Big Race", "The Limousine" and "The Invitations"? In Season 8 there is perhaps less of the "how to deal with awkward social situations" that is so closely linked to David's sense of humour (as constantly underlined in "Curb Your Enthusiasm"), but the contrast is slight.

All in all: great episodes, great extras and, if your Seinfelding is a little conservative, don't be put off by exaggerated rumours of some sort of paradigm switch. Honestly, you'd think some of these Seinfeld fans were junior academics in search of an article (maybe they are and they were practicing!) Enjoy.

This show started as an exemplary slow-burner, and the next thing you knew - yada yada yada - it became a cultural phenomenon. There is something you may call a Seinfeld experience, and I want to appraise the 8th installment of it.

The eight season marked two departures: one of the co-creator/scriptwriter/producer Larry David, and second of the show itself into the realm of pure wackiness. The season seven much-maligned finale, 'The Invitations' (S07E22), can be properly understood only in the context of general quality of season eight, which was one of craziness let loose. Susan's death marked the exact moment in which the entire show made 'ping!', and flew way off into the space of absurd. From the word go in 8ht's season's opener, 'The Foundation (S08E01)', there is no way you can relate to the characters as real people. Right until the very last episode they will be first and foremost CHARACTERS - ones we all love and we all laugh our brains out at - but, nonetheless, CHARACTERS. In all of the previous seasons - despite the famous claim that it's all about nothing - there was a sense that IF any of those people encounter a real-life tragedy that touches them personally, they would stop cracking jokes and cry just as you or me would (remember Elaine's tears shed on behalf of the bubble boy...?). 'The Invitations' proved otherwise and the show really became one about nothing: just the four pop-culture characters thrown into wackier and wackier situations. To my mind, this time no Sein-imation is needed, since season 8 (and 9) simply is the live-action equivalent of traditional cartoon.

And what a cartoon it is! One of the benefits of a then well-established mega-popularity of the show is the delight the screenwriters take in self-references.

If my memory serves, popular opinion was that Seinfeld was not "as good" when Larry David left. I know in my mind I had always thought the last couple of years were not up to snuff by comparison, but looking at the episodes Season 8 is made up of, I realize that I didn't necessarily have a clear delineation in my head of what that season actually was. On the first disc alone are shows I consider as classics, including "The Bizarro Jerry," Elaine's dancefloor disaster "The Little Kicks," and Kramer's poultry problem in "The Chicken Roaster." I had also forgotten completely about "The Abstinence," the episode where George discovers that foregoing sex makes his brain sharper, and then when Elaine tries abstaining, she actually gets dumber. I'd put that episode up with any of the best from previous years.

If there is any noticeable difference in Season 8, it's that Seinfeld takes itself a lot less seriously. There is a new abandon to the writing and performing. Nothing that they do is that far afield from what had been done before. The Apocalypse Now parody with Peterman is no more outrageous than the old Midnight Cowboy send-up with Kramer and Jerry, nor are any of the relationship hang-ups any more ridiculous. If anything, there is a greater freedom to call these hang-ups ridiculous, and Jerry in particular becomes a broader target. His germophobia gets more heightened, leading to the toothbrush falling in the toilet in "The Pothole." He is so freaked out that his girlfriend (Kristin Davis) cleaned her teeth with an instrument that touched toilet water, he can't bring himself to kiss her. Her revenge on him for this is ingenious, causing even Jerry to question his own sanity.
