Seinfeld: Season 9 is a four-disc boxed set including all 24 episodes from the ninth season of the long-running Sony Pictures Television series, including the finale that drew viewership numbers of over 75 million and hours of exclusive, never-before-seen bonus footage.

    The wealth of bonus features for Seinfeld: Season 9 include scenes from "The Roundtable" (excerpts from the one-hour table discussion), deleted scenes, bloopers, trivia, interviews, and other behind-the secenes bonus material. The ninth season features an astounding array of noteworthy episodes such as the unique backwards episode, "The Betrayal," and the reemergence of a classic arcade game in "The Frogger." The season culminates in the highly rated two-part finale, which boasts an illustrious gathering of some of the show's most memorable guest stars including Larry Thomas (Soup Nazi), Wendel Meldrum (Low-Talker), Golden Globe Award-winner Teri Hatcher, TV jounalist Geraldo Rivera, and others.


    Memorable Episodes / Notable Guest Stars:

    Seinfeld's 9th season premiered on September 25, 1997. It finished in first place in the rankings with a 21.7 rating. Only two other tv shows have finished #1 for their final season: I Love Lucy and and The Andy Griffith Show. The ninth season was nominated for five Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Comedy Series. Overall, the series was nominated for 68 Emmy Awards (winning 10) and 15 Golden Globes (winning 3) over the course of its nine-season, 180-episode run.

    With the departure of co-creator Larry David after season 7, the episodes continued to be a bit more zanier and outrageous in the final season. The episodes seemed to be hit or miss. Although none of them were among my all-time favorites, there were some memorable ones. Jerry imagines that his girlfriend's belly button talks to him and he enjoys imitating it in "The Voice." George competes with Lloyd Braun at selling computers in the Costanza's garage and Frank shouts "serenity now" to keep calm in "The Serenity Now." Elaine's neighbor leaves the country without turning off his alarm clock, and Kramer discovers unusual uses for his new meat slicer in "The Slicer." In the "backwards" episode, "The Betrayal," Elaine spites Sue Ellen Mischke by going to her Indian wedding with Jerry and George. George demands an apology from Jason Hanke over an old dispute, and Jerry learns the difference between good naked and bad naked in "The Apology." Everyone celebrates Festivus with the Costanzas, and Kramer goes back to work at H&H Bagels, ending a 12-year strike in "The Strike." Jerry decides to buy a new car from Puddy and a starving George accuses a mechanic of stealing his Twix bar in "The Dealership." George concocts a scheme to maintain his high score on an old Frogger video game machine in "The Frogger."

    Once again, there were a ton of notable guest stars. Kristin Davis appeared as Jenna and Gordon Jump was Mr. Thomassoulo and Chris Parnell played a NBC Executive in "The Butter Shave." Gordon Jump returned in "The Voice." "The Serenity Now" featured Lori Loughlin as Patty, Matt McCoy as Lloyd Braun and Bruce Mahler as Rabbi Glickman. Lloyd Bridges returned as Izzy Mandelbaum in "The Blood." Wilford Brimley played Postmaster General Henry Atkins in "The Junk Mail." Jim Fowler appeared as himself in "The Merv Griffin Show." Marcia Cross guest starred as Dr. Sara Seredes in "The Slicer." Brenda Strong returned as Sue Ellen Mischke in "The Betrayal." James Spader appeared as Jason Hanke in "The Apology." Kevin McDonald played Denim Vest in "The Strike." "The Cartoon" featured Paul Benedict as Mr. Elinoff, Tracy Nelson as Janet and Kathy Griffin as Sally Weaver. Illeana Douglas guest starred as Loretta and Alex Kapp Horner was Maura in "The Strongbox." Constance Zimmer played Waitress #2 in "The Wizard." Daniel Dae Kim was Student #1 in "The Burning." Mario Joyner appeared as Lamar and James Karen was Mr. Canterman in "The Puerto Rican Day." Geraldo Rivera appeared as himself in "The Finale." Many other guest stars appeared in the final episode.

    Returning recurring cast members included Wayne Knight as Newman, Steve Hytner as Kenny Bania, Patrick Warburton as David Puddy, Jerry Stiller as Frank Costanza, Estelle Harris as Estelle Costanza, Richard Fancy as Mr. Lippman, Barney Martin as Morty Seinfeld, Liz Sheridan as Helen Seinfeld, John O'Hurley as J. Peterman, Heidi Swedberg as Susan (in a flashback), Bryan Cranston as Whatley, Grace Zabriskie as Mrs. Ross, Warren Frost as Mr. Ross, Len Lesser as Uncle Leo, Phil Morris as Jackie Chiles and Danny Woodburn as Mickey.


    Packaging:

    Seinfeld - Season 9 (Volume 8) contains all 24 episodes from the top-rated final season. The outer box is copper and has the Seinfeld logo at the top, with a photo of Michael Richards, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jerry Seinfeld taking a bow. The back of the box lists the many special features and the DVD specs. The main DVD box slides out from the bottom of the box and features the same photo as the cover art. The back of the main box has small photos of Kramer and George on one side and Elaine and Jerry on the other. The four cast members are on the spine of the box waving.

    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 in red and yellow. Slim case #1 features Jerry, #2 has Elaine, #3 has George and $4 has Kramer. The slim cases have the same look and color scheme as the earlier releases. I would assume that these photos were taken specially for the DVD releases. The backs 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 four cast members and Jackie Chiles in court from "The Finale." 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 9. 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 has a shot of Jerry's apartment and couch. Disc 2 has a shot of the booth at Monk's. Disc 3 has an arcade game machine and rickshaw. Disc 4 has the court room. 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 catalog, wallet and receipt, arcade machine screen with joystick and a manilla folder with a mugshot of Jerry and a Schnapps bottle. 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 an oil barrel can and stopwatch, receipt/butter/turkey, clipboard and a courtroom plaque. The Extras section conveniently lists all the special features on each disc in one area. Sub-menus for Extras are a notepad, Festivus card and cassette tape, a dummy with a can on its head wearing a postal service uniform and a Trivial Pursuit card. 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. The clip show that preceded the final episode ran 43 minutes, 39 seconds. "The Finale" clocked in a whopping 55 minutes, 50 seconds without commercials. There are 2 language tracks offered: English (Stereo) and French (Stereo). It appears the Spanish option, which was available on seasons 1-4, has been dropped for seasons 5-89 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 are in their original production order (the order in which they were made) and not the original broadcast order. In prior seasons, it would have mattered more. For the final season, the production and original broadcast order were exactly the same.

    Special Features:

    There are a lot of special features on this set... yada, yada, yada... No, we try and provide as much detail as possible in our reviews.

    Just like seasons 1-8, we are treated to approximately 13 hours worth of exclusive special features from the creative talents behind the show, including "The Last Lap" featurette, Scenes from "The Roundtable," and "The Betrayal" episode back-to-front. All of these sets have set the standard for TV Show DVD releases. I will list the extras by episode below, and then describe the other special features at the end by disc.

    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. Nine episodes have the Inside Looks. There are a total of 10 (down from 14 last season) audio commentaries (Yada, Yada, Yada) on select episodes from the cast, creators and writers. 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. The commentaries by the writers tend to be the most interesting, in my opinion. The cast members tend to just watch and laugh at the episodes more often.

    9-1. The Butter Shave - Inside Look (2:12) has interviews with Writer Spike Feresten, Jerry Seinfeld, Director Andy Ackerman, and Writers Jeff Schaffer & Alec Berg. They talk a little bit how the stories were a little different this season, shooting Kramer's scene with his head on the turkey and working with Gordon Jump. Deleted Scene (:40) - Jerry talks to Angel and Bania.

    9-2. The Voice - Sein-imation - "Thy Voice of Thee" (:53) - Scenes from the episode are re-imagined. Inside Look (3:32) has interviews with Spike Feresten, Jerry Seinfeld and Andy Ackerman. They talk about the idea of the episode and which part of the body was originally considered instead of the belly button. Deleted Scene (1:15) - Jerry and George try to find Holland on a globe. Commentary with Writers Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel - They talk about this episode which was a continuation of "The Butter Shave," the origin of the voice thing, the return of David Puddy, Kramer's assistant and Gordon Jump. This is one of the better commentaries on the set with a lot of trivia and observations.

    9-3. The Serenity Now - Commentary with Writer Steve Koren - He talks about the favorite scene he wrote, the idea for the episode, the bar mitzvah story, the return of Mr. Lippman/Rabbi Glickman/ Lloyd Braun, the idea of shiksa appeal, the serenity now phrase and some deleted scenes. A pretty good commentary. The commentaries by only one person have to be harder to do.

    9-4. The Blood - Deleted Scenes (2:21 - 2 Scenes) - 1) Jerry and Newman are at Monk's. 2) Jerry talks to a receptionist and Newman walks in and talks to him.

    9-5. The Junk Mail - Inside Look (1:27) has interviews with Spike Feresten and Andy Ackerman. They talk about the idea of the episode and the casting of one of Andy's relatives as an extra. Deleted Scenes (2:16 - 2 Scenes) - 1) Elaine and Jerry are at Monk's. Elaine considers going behind the counter to get coffee. 2) Elaine and Jack are in The Wiz van.

    9-6. The Merv Griffin Show - Inside Look (4:32) has inteviews with Andy Ackerman, Michael Richards, Writer Bruce Eric Kaplan, Production Designer Tom Azzarri, John O'Hurley, Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Steve Hytner. They talk about how they replicated the set for the episode and Michael Richards' funny performance. Commentary with Actors Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander, Director Andy Ackerman and Writer Bruce Eric Kaplan. They talk about the wildest premise of this episode, the idea for the toys, sidler reference, the writing process and guest star Jim Fowler. I think they made a good decision adding more people to the cast member commentaries. Julia and Jason by themselves often have watched the episodes more than they have commented on them.

    9-7. The Slicer - Commentary with Writers Darin Henry, Gregg Kavet and Andy Robin. They talk about the background of the episode and the meat slicer idea. There isn't a whole lot of commentary here. It is more of them just watching the episode.

    9-8 - The Betrayal - You can play the episode back-to-front. The episode is edited this way for the first time to see the episode forwards. It's not quite as funny watching it this way. I can appreciate how they structured it originally. Inside Look (5:41) has interviews with Andy Ackerman, Writer David Mandel, Writer Peter Mehlman, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Heidi Swedberg. They talk about writing the episode, Elaine's look and the return of Heidi Swedberg in a flashback as Susan. Deleted Scenes (2:35 - 4 Scenes) - 1) George's foot falls asleep. 2) George puts on boots at Nina's place. 3) Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer are at Monk's. 4) Elaine and Nina are on the plane and Elaine meets Vegetable Lasagna. Commentary with Writers David Mandel and Peter Mehlman - They talk about the inspiration for this episode, how they wrote the script, the big budget, guest star Brenda Strong and Kramer's lollipop gag.

    9-9. The Apology - No special features are included besides the Notes About Nothing.

    9-10 - The Strike - Inside Look (5:18) has interviews with Jeff Schaffer & Alec Berg, Writer Dan O'Keefe, Andy Ackerman, Jerry Stiller, Editor Skip Collector, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jerry Seinfeld. They talk about the idea of Festivus, the two-face idea, Christmas card donation story and the real Festivus ice cream. Some outtakes from the dinner scene are shown. Deleted Scene (1:06) - George talks to Mr. Kruger. Commentary with Jerry Seinfeld, Director Andy Ackerman and Writer Dan O'Keefe. They talk about the Festivus and two-face story ideas and the difficulty in filming the dinner scene.

    9-11. The Dealership - Deleted Scene (:52) - Kramer gets a bail of hay out of the car to give to Bob Sacamano. Commentary with Actors Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Director Andy Ackerman - They talk about how the set for the dealership was built, the guest stars and cameo by one of the writers, the high fives, and the Thelma & Louise reference.

    9-12. The Reverse Peephole - Deleted Scene (1:41) - Jerry talks to Elaine on the phone. Puddy comes to Elaine's in his new 8-ball jacket. Newman pays a visit to Elaine's apartment. Commentary with Actors Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, Patrick Warburton and Spike Feresten. They talk about the appearance of Julia's half sister, the man fur, guest stars Jon Polito and Patt Finn, the reverse peephole idea and Joe Mayo.

    9-13. The Cartoon - Deleted Scenes (3:08 - 4 Scenes) - 1) Elaine talks to Dugan about the cartoon on his door. 2) Kramer has coffee at Monk's. 3) Kramer talks to Rhonda on the street. 4) George is talking to Janet. George calls Kramer.

    9-16 - The Burning - Deleted Scenes (2:05 - 2 Deleted Scenes) - 1) Artie talks to the doctors. 2) George trips going into a meeting. Jerry gets a call from George. Kramer and Elaine talk to George. Commentary with Actors Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, Patrick Warburton and Director Andy Ackerman. They give their observations about the episode and talk about the return of Patrick Warburton in this season. This episode was dedicated to Lloyd Bridges who had passed away.

    9-17. The Bookstore - Inside Look (1:55) has interviews with Andy Ackerman, Michael Richards, Director of Photography Wayne Kennan and Wayne Newman. They talk about shooting in downtown Los Angeles and how they did the rickshaw scene. Deleted Scene (:48) - A scene with Peterman and Elaine.

    9-18 - The Frogger - Inside Look (3:09) has interviews with Writer Gregg Kavet, Andy Ackerman, Wayne Kennan, Jason Alexander and Jerry Seinfeld. They talk about the Frogger idea and how the scene of George with the Frogger machine on the street was shot. Deleted Scenes (3:42 - 4 Scenes) - 1) George talks to Jerry at Monk's. Kramer comes out of the bathroom. 2) Kramer and Jerry are at Jerry's apartment. 3) Elaine and Kramer are at Monk's with the bathroom lady. 4) The bathroom lady is on the street and caution tape leads to a restaurant.

    9-19 - The Maid - Commentary with Writers Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel - They talk about Jerry's laryngitis in this episode, the fax story, and the T-Bone nickname idea. Another solid commentary from these three guys. Deleted Scene (:35) - A scene with George and Coco.

They talk about the challenge in filming the episode and the major controversy that it caused after and even before it ever aired. Commentary with Writers Steve Koren and David Mandel - They comment on this episode that was banned from syndication for a number of years. They talk about filming on the Universal Street, guest star Mario Joyner, the controvery over the episode and two episode ideas that David had which were never filmed.

    9-21 and 22. The Chronicle (:49) - Introduction by Jerry Seinfeld - This airs before the second half of the clip show in syndication. Michael Richards is also in it.

    9-23 and 24. The Finale - Deleted Scenes (15:04) - The finale that was broadcast ran over 55 minutes in length. There are 15 additional minutes of deleted scenes.

Some other deleted scenes include: Newman talking to Keith Hernandez, Rabbi Glickman talking to Jerry and George's parents, Uncle Leo talking to Babbs, J. Peterman talking to Puddy, Bania talking to Mickey, some additional lines by Jackie Chiles, Mr. Pitt on the stand, Mr. Lippman, the pharmacist on the stand, Poppi, Marlee Matlin and Jerry doing standup at the jail.

    Some of the other special features scattered on the discs include:

    Disc 1

    The Last Lap (23:19) - The cast and crew reminisce about their final days making Seinfeld and share their impressions about the show's legacy. This featurette includes interviews with Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Richards, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Executive Producer Howard West, NBC Executive Warren Littlefield, Executive Producer George Shapiro, Writer Spike Feresten, Writer Bruce Eric Kaplan, Danny Woodburn (Mickey), Steve Hytner (Bania), John O'Hurley (J.

Writer Dan O'Keefe, Director of Photography Wayne Kennan, Writers Max Pross & Tom Gammill, Television Critic Ray Richmond and Writer Peter Mehlman. A variety of topics are discussed. They were offered a lot of money per episode to come back for another season. They talk about writing the final episode and how they tried to hide the story and keep it a secret. Filming the finale was like a reunion for them. Tom Azzarri comments on the amount of pages the finale script was and the number of sets and locations. They talk about shooting the final episode and the final scene. A few scenes from the Green Day "Time of Your Life" video and the "Superman" clips compilation that aired before the finale are shown. They talk about the mixed reaction to the finale. Finally, they talk about Seinfeld's legacy. Overall, this is a pretty nice featurette. All of the featurettes have been nicely edited together with comments from al ot of people. I would have liked to see it detail a few more topics.

    Disc 2

    Sein-imation - "The Waiting Game" (1:49) - A re-imagined scene from a season 2 episode where Jerry does stand-up on waiting rooms.

    Disc 3

    Sein-imation - "Circus or Zoo?" (:58) - Jerry talks to George. From a Season 8 episode.

    "Not That There's Anything Wrong With That" (18:37) - Not quite as many bloopers/outtakes as Season 8 but still a decent amount. These are gold Jerry, gold!

    Disc 4

    "Scenes from the Roundtable" (18:26) - Excerpts from a conversation with Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, Michael Richards and Larry David nine years after Seinfeld went off the air. The full 58-minute version of this reunion can be found on Seinfeld - The Complete Series. I'm not sure if the order is the same on this season 9 set and on the bonus disc on the complete series. On this set, it is divided into various sections: The Budget Grows; Puddy; Julia's pregnant, Elaine is not; The Seinfelds; The Bosses; Celebrity Guest Stars; No Season 10. The interviews are mixed with clips from the episodes. It's great to see everybody together again. If you've bought the other seasons and watched the interviews and listened to the audio commentaries, there probably won't be a lot of new material for you. This is a nice taste, but I look forward to seeing the full version on the complete series set.

    Preview: Spider-man 3 Trailer (3:04)

    Easter Egg - Sein-imation "Conquering the Van Wyck" - This hidden bonus feature can be found by going to the Extras section and hitting the right arrow button while you are on "Scenes from the Roundtable" section. You will see a highlighted "Exhibit A" button. This is a rough storyboard version from a season 2 episode where George names the best public restrooms and Elaine tells a story about the Van Wyck.


    Final Comments:

    Thanks for the memories Seinfeld! 9 Seasons. 180 Episodes. So many catchphrases that are still being used today. It was an incredible run. TV Guide named Seinfeld as the greatest American television program of all time. I'm not sure I can call it my absolute favorite, but it is certainly in my top 5 of all time. The first seven seasons were certainly outstanding. The final two seasons without Larry David were a bit zanier and not quite as good, but still better than a lot of stuff on the air at the time. Contrary to what Larry King might think, the show was not canceled! Does he even know who Jerry is? Jerry made the right decision in ending the show. He turned down a lot of money down and decided against a tenth season. It was the right time. The final season was for the fans. Only two other shows had gone out #1: I Love Lucy and The Andy Griffith Show. Talk about select company.

    Sony has done an outstanding job with all 9 seasons of Seinfeld. They are certainly the best sitcom sets I've reviewed over the last 3 years. Not only do you get all of the episodes unedited and remastered in high definition for the best possible picture quality and sound quality, you get approximately 13 hours of special features on each set. These sets really had it all, including audio commentaries, interviews, inside looks, deleted scenes, bloopers, documentaries and much more. The "Notes About Nothing" trivia tracks are a great feature. They add re-watchability to all of the episodes. I'm a bit disappointed that they didn't include the full 58-minute version of "The Roundtable" reunion on this set. You'll have to pick up the complete series set to see it in its entirety. That set also includes a collectible "Official Coffee Table Book" -- a 226-page, bound anthology with photos, quotes and trivia from every episode - including personal reflections by Jerry Seinfeld. If you've already bought the other seasons, you might want to double dip to get the bonus disc and book. Unfortunately, it doesn't fold out like a real coffee table. Sony should definitely make the bonus disc and book available separately for those that have bought the seasons as they've been released.

    To the cast and crew of Seinfeld: thank you for the time of my life!
