Synopsis


Before taking off and becoming one of the most popular and critically acclaimed sitcoms in the history of television, Seinfeld was just a little show about nothing, still struggling to find an audience. In its first season, viewers were introduced to the principal quartet of Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld), George (Jason Alexander), Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), and Kramer (Michael Richards), though the pilot episode had no Elaine character and Kramer was known as Kessler. Only five episodes long, the season was still able to establish such recurring gags as George's pseudonym, Art Vandelay, and Kramer's idea for a make-your-own pizza restaurant. ~ Matthew Tobey

    Beginnings of a legendary series

    Hard to imagine now that 'Seinfeld' was not a sure thing when originally aired. However like any series, the actors needed to develop their roles and learn to interact and improve as a whole. This season 1 and 2 collection illustrates that progression, includes useful special features, and has been digitally remastered for today's larger screens. The comedy still holds up well, and the episodes show how much effort the cast and crew expended to make the series a success.

    Even "Nothing" starts somewhere

    Because "Seinfeld" just got better as its plots became more and more outlandish, it's easy to forget about the earliest, more conventional episodes. But, of course, they're more than worth revisiting. And the documentary about the show's origins features Larry David remembering his anxiety about committing to more and more episodes. (Almost like getting a bonus episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm!")

    covers the first 2 seasons and is a great introduction to this classic series. All the elements are there that continue until the show's ending. This started as a summer series and many may have missed the first few episodes. While available in syndication--it is nice to have your own copies of these 22 shows.

    I recommend purchasing Seasons 1 and 2 of Seinfeld as a great way to either begin the series for newcomers or go back and watch to see how it all started for those familiar with the show. The DVDs are great because there are many extras that compliment the episodes.

    Wonderfully inventive, clever and often hysterically funny show quite literally about "nothing." Follow the mundane lives of four self-absorbed people who have zero empathy for others as they careen their way through New York City.

    I just picked this dvd up because I had no Seinfeld discs in my collection and found this in the clearance bin. Can't comment on the quality or such things yet as I haven't had the time to watch any of the episodes yet.

    I didn't watch this show a lot back in the day, probably because I got tired of hearing people obsess about it. I do i like larry david's scripts but still think it was overrated.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
