5.0 out of 5 stars The finest sitcom ever made, beautifully packaged, 15 Nov. 2004
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seinfeld: Seasons 1 - 3 [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
The finest sitcom ever made with some really tantalising extras. I only got into Seinfeld when it was shown on BBC2 late at night (the most ridiculous scheduling in the history of TV) and later managed to catch the early repeats on various digital channels. The best thing about this show is the interaction between the four main characters, Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer. It is not only very funny but its, often cynical (or correct), viewpoint will change the way that you view the world: from relationships to society at large.
The extras on the DVDs are interesting and enlightening. The deleted scenes are often interesting because you can see why they were deleted: they are often too overplayed or exaggerated. Most episodes also have an extra two-minute talking head mini documentary with contributions from Larry David (co-writer and star of Curb your Enthusiasm another 5* show), Jerry Seinfeld and the other main actors. These are often insightful, for example, Larry David talks about when he realised that he would have to give some of the script writing commitments over to the writing team rather than do them all himself or the fact that Jerry Seinfeld seemed to enjoy writing lines for his co-actors more than himself. There are also text and verbal commentaries by principle players about specific scenes.
If you like Seinfeld: buy this. If you've never seen it: borrow this and then buy it. If you don't like Seinfeld go back to watching familiar, comfortable, formulaic drivel and claiming that they don't write comedy shows like they used too. Yes they don't, and we have the likes of Seinfeld, Rickey Gervais and Chris Morris to thank for that!
