Nothing? Seinfeld is a show about everything! It's about the appeal of the posse and coma etiquette. It's about importing and exporting. It's about sneaking a peek, and seeing the baby. It's about this, that, and the other. TV Guide ranked Seinfeld the best TV series of all time. It has become the master of its syndication domain. Its most devoted fans can quote each episode chapter and verse; their absorption of each scene's minutiae anything but a trivial pursuit. With such fervent devotion to the show, and demand for its DVD release, series creators Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David could have easily just OK'd a bare-bones set containing nothing but the episodes. Not that there would have been anything wrong with that, but instead, the creative team came together to create extensive and encyclopedic features that make this four-disc set buy-worthy. The candid and revealing audio commentaries and interviews, deleted scenes and original episode promos, and optional "Notes About Nothing" pop-ups are as irresistible as a Drake's coffee cake.

It's always fun and instructive to return to the humble beginnings of a series that became a pop culture benchmark. Here are Kramer's first not-so-grand entrance, Jerry's first contemptuous "Hello, Newman," and Elaine's first "Get Out!" shove. But what is most revelatory about these episodes from the first two seasons is what Jason Alexander, during his commentary for the episode "The Revenge," calls a "sweet quality" that somehow redeems these characters' more base instincts. Consider the scene in which Jerry gives a freshly unemployed George some career guidance, or Jerry and Elaine's palpably affectionate banter throughout. The "Inside Look" episode intros offer fascinating insights into this singular show that subverted sitcom convention with such now-classic episodes as "The Chinese Restaurant," in which Jerry, George, and Elaine wait in vain for a table. We learn, for example, why movie tough guy Lawrence Tierney, who guest starred in "The Jacket," never reprised his role as Elaine's father. All of this, of course, is yadda yadda yadda to Seinfeld fans, whose patience for the show's DVD debut has been amply rewarded. As Elaine screams in the third-season episode, "The Subway," "It's not nothing, it's something!" --Donald Liebenson

I bought seasons 1 & 2 the day they came out. The packaging and graphics is great, one of the best I've seen. The box also contains exact details on what is featured on each dvd, which is great. It's a little strange watching the episodes without all the laugh tracks added, but the high def remake is wonderful. I would have liked to have seen bloopers & outtakes included for EACH episode, not just a few of them on one of the dvd's. But overall, it's a great set, and I'm going back tomorrow to buy Season 3!

I love these episodes, although, I do prefer the later episodes but these seasons are definitley funny and are great for establishing the characters personality traits. For example, George will lie more and explode with rage more and Jerry will become even more of a germaphobe and become even more selfish, etc. as the seasons progress. These episodes are really the classic ones, they have most credit based on that but although the humour is more subtle, I still put these episodes above any other sitcom at the time and many, many that are on now.

It's amazing how a show that started over 20+ years ago can still make me laugh.

Season 1 is very short (5 episodes), so combining the two into one set made sense.

If you're buying this, I don't have to tell you about the greatest TV show ever, just keep in mind that every episode is in 4:3 format, and with all new TVs nowadays being a widescreen 16:9, when you pop in the DVD you'll have to stretch it on your TV to get rid of the black bars on the sides.

Well now that I have bought the first 2 volums and watched them all, I can say that it is amazing. The sound and picture are great. The 'Notes about Nothing' for every show is very cool, the first time I ever saw this feature. The Kramer vs. Kramer feature was so amazing, no wonder the whole cast loved Michael R. The bloopers are just great, and there are lots of them. Alot of the shows have introduction about specific shows told by the cast and production team, on how the story came about or things that happened when shooting, which is another great feature. And finally the commentaries are great. Oh yes, the fact that it is original length episodes is another great feature, it is amazing to see how much TV cuts from the reruns today. Looking forward to season 4 and up.
