Their last fantastic season
Verified purchase
Season 7 of Seinfeld was the last season that they hit it out of the park and was also creator Larry David's season. While the two seasons after this one were very good and offered plenty of great episodes, this was the last one where nearly every episode was very memorable. This season is best known as the season where George would enter the long term engagement with Susan but thankfully this storyline would not go into sugary sweet territory like it would on other sitcoms. The most memorable episode for the casual fan is "The Soup Nazi" and while this is a fantastic episode, there are several on the same level, some even on the same disc such as "The Maestro" and the "Hot Tub", as well as the other discs such as "The Caddy", "The Secret Code", "The Rye", "The Doll", and both two-part episodes, "The Cadillac" and "The Bottle Deposit". Always a memorable character, Kramer became even more ridiculous, performing great scenes as the Movie Phone guy, his banter with both Newman and Jackie Chiles, and the funky scene where he wears the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Like the other discs, the special features are top notch with tons of bloopers and commentaries. All told, Season 7 of Seinfeld is a classic and a must own.

Arguably Seinfeld's very best season
Verified purchase
Season 7 was arguably Seinfeld's best season. I recently finished watching it straight through, episode-by-episode, and found myself still, a decade and several hundred syndication views later, laughing my head off. The Soup Nazi was just as funny today as he was when the episode aired on November 2, 1995

The season started strong, with Jerry and George realizing that "we're not men", that their lives were pathetic, and that they were doomed to live for eternity alone, single, and making silly, meaningless conversation at the coffee shop. George took this to heart, and to everyone's great surprise, asked his ex-girlfriend Susan ("I thought she was a lesbian?" "It didn't take") to marry him. To our greater surprise, she said yes, and when George called his parents to tell them of his engagement, Susan told Estelle that she was very much in love with her son, to which Estelle replied, "May I ask why?" It was a clear bell announcing to Seinfeld's fans that their comic timing was still spot on.

And it was. While already having displayed brilliance in past seasons, they seemed to reach their apex here, where the requisite multiple story-lines all tied in together, built off of each other, *made sense*, the end result being a near perfect show. This was a quality the show would lose the very next season.

Jerry didn't begin and end every show with his stand-up, and that was welcome for me. I have never cared for his stand up. I don't think he's funny outside of the TV show. The 4.5 star rating of his final Broadway show demonstrate that others think differently. To each their own.

Looking back, it's hard to imagine that Julia Louise-Dreyfus only walked away with one Emmy win (seven nominations) in nine years. But when you consider just some of her competition over the years: Christine Baranski from Cybill, Lisa Kudrow from Friends, Kristen Johnsen from Third Rock from the Sun, and Lauire Metcalf from Roseanne, it becomes easier to appreciate the difficulty of winning that award when these actresses were portraying such memorable characters.

The extras on this DVD set really make it stand out. The inside looks offer fascinating insight, although the extras weren't captioned or subtitled. Some deleted scenes were better left deleted, while others were stronger and if time wasn't a factor (as it isn't on HBO and Showtime, for example) might have made a stronger show. You'll have to be the judge of that. I didn't listen to the Notes About Nothing. You *really* have to be an in-too-deep Seinfeld fan to watch an episode just to hear actor/writer/director commentary (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Allow me to digress for a moment and step outside the purview of this review. The only thing that hangs over the DVD release (and all Seinfeld DVD releases) and that which mars its perfection is knowing that Jerry Seinfeld's three co-stars had to push and shove to negotiate for residuals for doing the extra material on the DVDs. It's bad enough that they receive only standard Screen Actors Guild residuals for the reruns in syndication, which have netted the three co-stars each roughly $[...] (according to Jason Alexander in 2004). Compare that to the hundreds of millions that their brethren receive for similar work in lesser sitcoms, the five hundred million that Larry David made off the series, and Seinfeld's net worth of $[...] billion dollars. Not that Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld don't deserve the lions share - they created the show, and Larry's contributions to the show were immeasurable. However, without the talents of each individual actor, the fans of Seinfeld wouldn't have had such a marvelous treasure. The show wouldn't have been the same without their unique chemistry. There should have been some parity.

Another classic season!
Verified purchase
Another classic season of perhaps the most culturally important sitcom in the history of television.
Some of these are episodes that changed our collective vernacular: "No soup for you!"; "Spongeworthy"; "Bosco!"
The season-long arc of George's engagement is brilliant from beginning to end. Sprinkle in a generous helping of Steinbrenner, Peterman, and Newman, along with a pinch of Marisa Tomei, and you will not be disappointed in this set of DVDs.
Please note: does NOT come with bread.

No Soup For You!
Verified purchase
There isn't much to say about this season or this show that hasn't been said already. I like the arc of this season better than season six: the concept of George's engagement hovers omnipresent in the background during the entire season, and I think it works exceptionally well as a comic medium (I am especially enamored with Susan's ultimate departure from the cast.)

Aside from the engagement arc, there are other works of comedy genius here that rival the best of the other seasons. "The Soup Nazi" has to be my personal favorite of the season, but "The Shower Head" provides the cast with wonderful opportunities for physical comedy (albeit through the unlikely medium of their hair), while "The Rye" and "The Cadillac" worked sublimely in combination. I found Michael Richard's character (and the Kramer-driven plotpoints) to become a bit more monotonous this season, but that may be due to the contrast with the exceptional characterizations from the other three principals.

Of course there are plenty of extras (I especially like the "Notes About Nothing" feature) all of which are worth watching. As always, this is a fabulous show, and should be in the library of any comedy lover.

still the greatest
Verified purchase
I have seasons one thru seven and they are all brillant. I have read where in 8 and 9 they almost become cartoon characters but even in this and in some of the earler seasons anytime someone other than Larry David is the writer that can happen. I think the other writers try to imitate Larry and they get the crazyness and originalty down pretty well but only David new these characters as real people. (I think my favorite seasons are three and four, and David wrote quite a few of those episodes.) Of the four stars they were all great of course. The three guys look a little thicker in particular George. (It may have been the fault of the show for George. It seems like everytime he was in Jerry's apartment this season he was eating and who knows how many takes they went through.) And Elaine's glamour makover makes her seem like a different person. It is as if the actress playing Elaine retired after season six and they hired a model that kind of looked like the original Elaine. That said, I do not think I will every get tired of this series, and also by the way, it is the best put together TV cd set I have ever seen, thanks. PS Newman is great.

Amazon ships damaged product
Verified purchase
I gave the DVD five stars, as the show is great, there is perhaps nothing I can add to the previous reviews. However, take note that Amazon has been sending me "new" DVDs that appear clearly used, with the packaging completely damaged. I recommend the whole series to everyone, just do yourself a favor and buy it elsewhere, or pay half price to get a used item sold as used.

The first time (another Seinfeld DVD) the packaging looked only slightly damaged. Perhaps someone dropped it once before packaging, I thought. This time, however, the box that contains the four discs was torn along one of the edges, and all corners of it were damaged. It looks like someone played soccer with it for a while.

It is a shame that Amazon sells discs in such condition.

Note that once you take the DVDs out of their plastic wrap (I had to before I could see the box is torn), you can get back at most fifty percent of the original price, making it worthless to return.

Anticipate viewing Season 7 with bated breath
Verified purchase
Our Seinfeld (Season 7) DVD arrived well within the promised delivery date of the Amazon third party vendor. The packaging is in good condition and we have every reason to believe that the DVDs within are in equally satisfactory shape. At the time the order was placed, we also ordered other Seinfeld seasons including 1,2 and 4 (we already own Season 3). Even though we are missing some intermediate seasons (specifically 5 and 6), we will watch those that we have in chronological order. Needless to say, Season 7 is at the end of the queue. Our DVD viewing time is limited as there are many other tasks and chores for us to attend to. Accordingly it will take a while before the shrink wrap on Season 7 is removed and we are not even able to anticipate when that will be. BTW, we await Season 7 with bated breath. That's because it includes what is perhaps the most talked about Seinfeld show, The Soup Nazi. It is the title of the 116th episode of the NBC sitcom Seinfeld, which was the 6th episode of the 7th season. It first aired in the United States on November 2, 1995. As we don't have cable or a TV antenna, we can't watch broadcast TV. Our TV monitor is for DVD and Blu-Ray only. We can also use it as a computer monitor, but seldom do. Get back to us in a few months for a full review of Season 7. With luck we may have gotten to it by then.

Who doesn't love, PC incorrect Seinfeld?

Wish Seinfeld type of comedy was ALLOWED in today's world. If only the PC society we live in, allowed the type of fresh comedy we watched in the 90's with Seinfeld & other sitcoms, people could laugh instead of argue a LOT more.
