Yo Yo Ma!

The release of the first three series of Seinfeld on DVD was wonderful. This, though, is even more exciting, as Series 4 is where things completely take off. It's consistently hilarious, even on repeated viewing, and by now the 4 main characters, and particularly our fave hipster dufus Kramer, are all extremely well-drawn and confident. Jerry's arch-nemesis neighbour Newman also starts to make more regular appearances...
If you haven't seen 'The Virgin', 'The Contest' and 'The Bubble Boy' before then quite simply you are yet to experience just how good a half hour (or even a 23 minute) sitcom can be. These are real creative peaks, packed full of memorable lines and moments.
Seinfeld fans out there (and yes, despite what the BBC seemed to believe, we DO exist by the million in the UK), will be happy to know that similar to the first three series on DVD, this one has plenty of extras, which include interviews with the cast, a 20 minute documentary, outtakes and commentaries. The episodes have again been remastered so that they look completely perfect and very sharp and yes, there's audience laughter on the soundtrack - but this has always been present.
Series 4 through to Series 7, which is when (I think) Larry David left are all completely superb and these are the series to get, as they are released one by one, to enjoy the finest sitcom ever made.
Don't hesitate - this will be the best DVD purchase you make in 2005.
