    Introduction:

    The show about nothing is finally a DVD about something. Packed with all new special features created in partnership with Jerry Seinfeld, this 4-disc set includes all 24 episodes from the seventh season. "No soup for you!" "He stole my marble rye!" "Bosco!" "Spongeworthy?" ...and nobody can forget - George gets engaged! Here's your invitation to 24 original full-length episodes of the Emmy Award-Winning Season 7 of Seinfeld. All remastered with new high definition picture and sound. In addition, there are 13 hours of exclusive never-before-seen special features from the creative talents behind the show, including all-new interviews with Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Michael Richards and Jason Alexander.


    Memorable Episodes / Notable Guest Stars:

    Seinfeld improved in the Nielsen ratings with a 21.2 rating, but it finished in 2nd place behind ER in the seventh (1995-96) season. Nearly 34 million viewers tuned in every week. ER would also finish ahead of Seinfeld in the eighth season, but Seinfeld took the #1 spot for the final season. For season seven, Seinfeld was nominated for eleven Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor (Seinfeld), and two Outstanding Supporting Actor nods (Alexander and Richards), with Julia Louis-Dreyfus taking home the statuette for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Co-creator Larry David left the series following this season.

    For a show about nothing, Seinfeld: Season 7 has a whole lot of something. Memorable episodes included "The Engagement," in which as a result of the pact he made with Jerry to grow up, George proposes to Susan. Jerry's healthy eating habits backfire when his grapefruit squirts into George's eye, and George's involuntary winking leads to trouble at the Yankees in "The Wink." The gang discovers an amazing soup stand that's run by a dictatorial chef in "The Soup Nazi." Elaine realizes she has no female friends and makes an effort to get to know Susan, causing George's worlds to collide, and the annoying pool guy from Jerry's health club won't leave him alone in "The Pool Guy." When Jerry buys his father a new Cadillac, it leads to trouble for the Seinfelds at their Florida condominium in "The Cadillac." As his wedding nears, George picks the cheapest invitations in the shop, and Jerry proposes marriage to a woman just like him who saves his life in "The Invitations."

    Returning recurring cast members included Wayne Knight as Nemman, Jerry Stiller as Frank Costanza, Estelle Harris as Estelle Costanza, Heidi Swedberg as Susan, Phil Morris as Jackie Chiles, Richard Herd as Wilhelm, Larry David as the voice of George Steinbrenner, Steve Hytner as Kenny Bania, John O'Hurley as J. Peterman, Liz Sheridan as Helen Seinfeld, Barney Martin as Morty Seinfeld, Sandy Baron as Klompus, Len Lesser as Uncle Leo and Danny Woodburn as Mickey Abbott.

    Notable guest stars included Mario Joyner as himself in "The Invitations." Mark Metcalf played Maestro in "The Maestro" and "The Doll." Larry Thomas guest starred as the Soup Nazi in "The Soup Nazi." Alexandra Wentworth was Sheila ("Schmoopie") and Ana Gasteyer was the Woman in "The Soup Nazi." Lewis Arquete appeared as Leapin' Larry in "The Secret Code." Brenda Strong guest starred as the braless wonder, Sue Ellen Mischke, and Armin Shimerman played Stan in "The Caddy." Marissa Tomei appeared as herself in "The Cadillac." Also guest starring in that episode were Bill Macy as Herb and Jesse White as Ralph. Jay Leno appeared as himself in "The Shower Head." Kathy Griffin guest starred as Sally Weaver in "The Doll." Rob Schneider was Bob and Pat Cooper played himself in "The Friars Club." John D'Aquino appeared as Todd in "The Calzone." Brad Garrett guest starred as Tony, Brenda Strong returned as Sue Ellen, and Rance Howard played the farmer in "The Bottle Deposit." Cary Elwes played David and Debra Messing was Beth in "The Wait Out." Janeane Garofalo appeared as Jeannie Steinman and Stephen Root played Mr. Lager in "The Invitations."


    Packaging:

    Seinfeld - Season 7 (Volume 6) contains all 24 episodes from another top-rated season. The outer box is dark gray and has the Seinfeld logo at the top, with a photo of Kramer, George, Elaine, and Jerry at the bottom. Looking at all 6 releases, all of the photos were probably shot at the same time with only different poses. I'm not sure what year the photos were taken. It is hard to tell. The back of the box has small photos of the cast and gives a listing of the many special features and other technical details of the set. The main DVD box slides out from the left and features the same photo as the cover.

    There are four individual slim cases found in the inner box. They feature a large photo of an individual cast member and the Seinfeld logo. Case #1 features Jerry, #2 has Elaine, #3 has George, and Kramer is featured on #4. The slim cases have the same look and color theme as the earlier releases. The back of the cases list the episodes with a small individual photo, short episode summaries and special features. The summaries are pretty detailed and list all of the storylines for each character. I would have liked to see them list all the guest stars, although they do list a few of the more well-known guests. Inside of the cases, there is a shot of the Soup Nazi's kitchen. The discs feature a small Seinfeld logo, with an individual cast member on each. Disc 1 pictures Jerry and has episodes 1-6 from Season 7. Disc 2 features Elaine and has episodes 7-12. Disc 3 has George pictured with episodes 13-18. Kramer is shown on disc 4 which holds episodes 19-24. A small, 4-page booklet is included that lists the episode titles broken down by disc, along with the main actor and writing/directing credits for each episode.


    Menu Design and Navigation:

    Seinfeld has always had some of the most creative and fun menus that I've seen. Each disc has a different theme related to the show, and every menu is unique. The main menus show different video clips from the episodes with the theme playing in the background, and then everything is looped. Disc 1's main menu features the Soup Nazi's kitchen, Disc 2 has a movie theatre theme, Disc 3 has a shot of the New York Street, and Disc 4 has a view of Jerry's apartment. There are options for Episodes, Set Up, and Extras on each main menu. When you select one of those options, it takes you to another sub-menu. The sub-menus for the Episodes section are a menu board, lost and found box, ATM machine and calendar. There is is a different photo for each episode as you highlight them. A Play All button is available on the Episodes menu. The Set Up menu allows you to choose the language and subtitles. Set Up menus feature a grocery sign, newspaper, basket/bicycle basket with soda cans and a bowl with i.o.u. notes. The Extras section conveniently lists all the special features on each disc in one area. Sub-menus for Extras are a piece of notebook paper, hot dog holder, parking meter and a cable company note on a door. There are chapter stops within the episodes but no separate menus for scene selections. I'm not sure I could take any more menu screens anyway.


    Video and Audio Quality:

    All episodes have been digitally remastered and newly enhanced in high-definition to provide the best picture and sound quality possible. The episodes appear in their original 1.33:1 aspect ratio. Some of the episodes have a tiny bit of grain, but for the most part these look great. As we have got to the later seasons, the quality has improved gradually. The picture is very sharp and crisp. The outdoor scenes, in particular, have great color. The audio is a Dolby 2.0 Digital track. The volume is at a good level, and the dialogue is easy to hear. These episodes are the original NBC network versions, and not the syndicated versions you see on cable or local tv stations that have 1-2 minutes edited out. Two of the episodes this season were originally aired as one-hour broadcasts, so they are presented that way here. There are 2 language tracks offered: English (Stereo) and French. It appears the Spanish option, which was available on seasons 1-4, has been dropped for seasons 5-7. Subtitles are available in English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish. Commentary subtitles are available in Spanish and Portuguese. Notes About Nothing subtitles are offered in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

    The episodes appear to be in their original production order (the order in which they were made) and not the original broadcast order. Since the episodes are loosely interconnected, this is the order they were meant to be viewed.

    Here is a breakdown of the episodes by disc, with their running times:

    Special Features:

    Just like seasons 1-6, we are treated to approximately 13 hours worth of exclusive special features from the creative talents behind the show, including all-new interviews with Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Michael Richards and Jason Alexander. These sets set the standard for TV Show DVD releases. I will list the extras by episode below, and then describe the other special features (which are mostly found on disc 4) later.

    Inside Looks are several minute short features that have interviews with the cast and creators that give some behind the scenes details as the episodes were created and filmed. There are a total 10 (up from 8 last season) audio commentaries (Yada, Yada, Yada) on select episodes from the cast, creators and writers. In the Vault features some deleted scenes that didn't make the final cut of the episodes. Notes About Nothing are little factoids, with behind the scenes trivia and production notes that scroll on the screen as you watch the episodes. There are notes for every episode. Even if you've watched the episodes 50 times, I'm sure you'll learn something new with the notes. I find it's best to watch the episodes first, and then watch the commentaries combined with the notes, as there can be some downtime in the commentaries.

    7-1. The Engagement - Inside Look (4:03) has interviews with co-creator Larry David, Heidi Swedberg, Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Director Andy Ackerman, Writer David Mandel, Estelle Harris and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. They talk about the whole George gets engaged story arc that runs the entire season. Deleted Scene (1:39) - A scene with Elaine, Kramer and Newman getting pulled over in a car by a police officer. Sein-imation - "Dr. Cosmo on Marriage & Family" (1:48) - A classic scene re-imagined in animated form.

    7-2. The Postponement - Commentary with Jason Alexander and Julia-Louis Dreyfus - They give their general observations and mention things like Jason's laugh, Julia's hair, the rabbi character and Michael Richards intentionally mis-pronouncing names. It's too bad Michael Richards wasn't with them to do more commentaries.

    7-3. The Maestro - Inside Look (4:22) has interviews with Larry David, Phil Morris (Jackie Chiles), Casting Director Marc Hirschfeld, Michael Richards and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. They talk about the Jackie Chiles character which was created to mock attorney Johnnie Cochran and Michael Richards mis-pronouncng words.

    7-4. The Wink - No special features are included besides the Notes About Nothing. This is unfortunate, as this was one of the funniest episodes of the season.

    7-5. The Hot Tub - 2 Deleted Scenes (2:23) - George, Elaine, Wilhelm and Elaine are in his office. You can see the green screen background where the Yankee Stadium shot would have been inserted. The second season involves Elaine and the rabbi.

    7-6. The Soup Nazi - Inside Look (7:31) has interviews with Writer Spike Feresten, Jason Alexander, Wayne Knight, Larry Thomas (The Soup Nazi), Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Andy Ackerman and Jerry Seinfeld. They talk about how the idea was pitched, who's accent Larry tried to imitate, the no moving furniture day idea and Jerry's real-life meeting with the real Soup Nazi. Commentary with Jerry Seinfeld, Director Andy Ackerman and Writer Spike Feresten - They talk about Alexandra Wentworth, Steve Hytner, Larry Thomas, Jerry's encounter with the real-life Soup Nazi, Yul Vazquez and John Paragon as the tough gay guys, and which props they have from the show.

    7-7. The Secret Code - Inside Look (2:26) has interviews with Writers Jeff Schaffer & Alec Berg, Jason Alexander, Producer Tim Kaiser and Andy Ackerman. They talk about how they got the idea for the ATM code and how the scene with Kramer on the firetruck was shot. Commentary with Writers Alec Berg and Jeff Schaffer - This was their second season on the show. They discuss various topics such as guest star Fred Stoller, the emergency band scanner idea, Lewis Arquette as Leapin' Larry, a character named after a soccer video game star, John O'Hurley and the firetruck scene with Kramer.

    7-8. The Pool Guy - Inside Look (5:37) has interviews with Writer David Mandel, Wayne Knight, Andy Ackerman and Michael Richards. They talk about comedian Danny Hoch, who was originally cast for the episode and why he decided not to do it, where they shot the pool scenes and the Moviefone idea. Commentary with Jerry Seinfeld, Director Andy Ackerman and Writer David Mandel - This seemed like a reunion of sorts, as they hadn't seen each other in awhile. They talk about how they got various ideas for this episode, why Danny Hoch decided not to the part of Carlos Jacott, how they made up movie names and the Moviefone idea.

    7-9. The Sponge - Commentary with Writer Peter Mehlman - He talks about how he got the idea for this episode, the whole spongeworthy craze, the AIDS walk, his cameo in the episode and guest star Scott Patterson.

    7-10. The Gum - Inside Look (3:44) has interviews with Andy Ackerman, Writers Max Pross & Tom Gammill, Heidi Swedberg, Jerry Seinfeld and Writer Fred Stoller. They talk about how they got the idea for the episode from Assistant Director Randy Carter and the inclusion of the Monk's cashier, Ruthie Cohen, in this episode. Commentary with Writers Tom Gammill and Max Pross - These guys never disappoint with their commentaries. I always find their commentaries the most interesting and entertaining. They talk about why they had to recast the part of Llyod Braun, their determination to work Ruthie Cohen into the show, the return of Jon Voight's car, Jerry's glasses and guest star Eric Christmas as Jeffrey Haarwood.

They talk about the recurring actors in this episode including Liz Sheridan, Len Lesser, John O'Hurley, Estelle Harris, Jerry Stiller and Wayne Knight.

    Previews (Disc 1) - Previews for The Da Vinci Code (:32) and Click (:32)

    Easter Egg - Deleted Scene/Outtake (Disc 1 - 1:11) - This hidden egg is not mentioned on the packaging. On Disc 1, go the Episodes menu and select The Engagement. When you are on The Engagement episode menu, scroll down to the Deleted Scene section and push your right arrow key twice and you'll see a ring. You will see an additional scene/outtake with Jerry and Mario Joyner meeting George and Susan.

    Sein-Imation - George & the Whale (Disc 2 - 2:38) - A re-imagination of George's speech about the whale from "The Marine Biologist" episode from season 5.

    Easter Egg - Hey, Aren't You... (Disc 2 - 15:16) - This hidden egg is not mentioned on the packaging. I could see hiding small deleted scenes, but this is a full-blown featurette. On Disc 2, go to the Episodes menu and highlight Set Up and push the down arrow button twice. A button will be highlighted in yellow. This is a funny and entertaining featurette, so I don't know why they chose to hide it. Cast members talk about how they are recognized on the streets and meeting with fans. Interviewed are Jerry Seinfeld, Wayne Knight, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Danny Woodburn, Patrick Warburton, Lee Bear, Ian Abercrombie, Larry Thomas, Writer Bruce Kirschbaum, Steve Hytner, Keith Heranandez, Reni Santoni, Len Lesser, Bob Balaban, John O'Hurley, Liz Sheridan, Heidi Swedberg, Jason Alexander, Brian George, Writer Peter Mehlman, Barney Martin, Estelle Harris, Michael Richards and Jerry Stiller.

    Queen of the Castle: The Elaine Benes Story (Disc 4 - 16:09) - When Seinfeld needed a girl, Julia Louis-Dreyfus fit the bill, bringing luster and laughter to the show. This is a nice featurette that has a number of clips and interviews with people. Interviewed are Jerry Seinfeld, Castle Rock Executive Rob Reiner, Executive Producer George Shaprio, Larry David, Jason Alexander, Castle Rock Executive Glenn Padnick, Executive Producer Howard West, Casting Director Marc Hirschfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Director Tom Cherones, Writer Matt Goldman, Writer Larry Charles, Writer Peter Mehlman, John O'Hurley, Michael Richards, Editor Skip Collector and Director Andy Ackerman. This covers everything from the start to the finish: how she was cast, how she thought she wasn't getting enough comedy stuff in the early seasons, and how they thought she was a great physical actress. There are some bloopers from all of the seasons shown. There is also a small bit of footage of her accepting the Emmy Award she won.

    Larry David's Farewell (Disc 4 - 7:49) - Reflections on Larry David's final season. He had talked about leaving the show for a number of seasons. This season he went through with it. He had done 7 seasons and just basically couldn't do it anymore. Interviewed are Larry David, Jerry Seinfeld, Writer Andy Robin, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Michael Richards, Jason Alexander, Writer Larry Charles and Writers Jeff Schaffer & Alec Berg. Jerry Seinfeld talks about the challenges of doing the last 2 seasons.

    Where's Larry?: Seinfeld's Secret Guest Star (Disc 4 - 7:11) - Larry David was seen or heard in 40 episodes. He provided the voice of George Steinbrenner in 14 episodes. This is a montage of those 40 appearances. Some of these I would have never recognized.

    "Master of His Domain" (Exclusive Stand-up Material) (Disc 4 - 8:40) - See Jerry Seinfeld in exclusive, never-before-seen stand-up comedy footage. Jerry talks about topics including Halloween, cash machines, dogs in cars, cereal box prizes, expiration dates, restrooms and dry cleaners.

    "Not That There's Anything Wrong With That" (Disc 4 - 21:18) - Over 21 minutes of bloopers from this season. Some very funny moments here. Unfortunately, I didn't see any of Estelle, Frank, Helen and Morty that were mentioned in one of the commentaries by Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The video quality on these clips is generally excellent and not the poor videotape quality bloopers you sometimes see from other shows. These are gold Jerry, gold!


    Final Comments:

    Wow, that was an excruatingly long wait between seasons 5-6 and 7. I really thought that we would see season 7 in May and seasons 8-9 in November, but I guess there were some unforseen circumstances. It has almost been a year to the day since the last seasons were released. It was certainly worth the wait. This set once again delivers everything you've come to expect from a Seinfeld DVD release.

    My only complaint with this set (and the prior releases) is with the hidden DVD Easter eggs. I will never understand this concept and why studios include them on TV show and movie releases. If you go through the time, effort and money to put them together, why hide them from the consumer? Many consumers like to watch special features to supplement the episodes. They shouldn't have to jump through hoops to find them. On this set, there is an entertaining 15-minute featurette that is hidden that some people might not even ever find. Not everybody is aware of DVD Easter eggs or knows there are internet sites that list them.

    Hopefully we'll see the remaining 2 seasons released in 2007. Ideally, we would see both seasons in May, but I'd also take season 8 in May and the final season next November.


    Final Numbers (out of 5 stars):

    Video Quality: 5/5
    Audio Quality: 5/5
    Special Features: 5/5
    Menu Navigation/Design: 5/5
    Overall: 5/5
