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
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: Theres 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 Jerrys 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

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.
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.....
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.
So thats a little bit about the show and now its time for my thoughts on the show overall. Seinfeld to me is really funny sitcom still in 2016 as I write this review, I have watched both season 1 and 2 prior to writing this review. I have never watched Seinfeld before other than a few clips on the internet. Overall I enjoyed seasons 1 and 2 of Seinfeld, I thought the writing of the show was put together well, the jokes and comedy were great and I love the chemistry between the cast of characters in this show. I also think this show could be watched a few times due to it been a good comedy. As I said before this show was originally created in 1989 and it still holds up well to this day. I would recommend this show if you are fan of other shows like friends and other American Sitcoms.
