    I know this has been brought up before, but is there any new information on Seinfeld coming to DVD? I'd love to have each season come out like the Simpsons.

    Yes! This is my fondest wish. I'd also like to know any information.

    I will be very angry if a Seinfeld DVD collection did not include the two or three episodes that will no longer be aired on television.

    The Peurto Rican Day episode was not shown since it's original broadcast until just recently (about a month or so ago) in many areas. However, I have since seen it again.
    I think there was discussion that the envelope licking episode would be pulled from syndication rotation temporarily due to the anthrax stuff. I'm fairly certain this was not a permanent measure, if it was ever even done at all.
    I'd buy Seinfeld on DVD in a heartbeat.

    I think they signed a second syndication deal for something like a billion(?) dollars that just went into effect just last year.
    I don't think you can realistically expect Seinfeld on homevideo in any format for a few years yet.
    I hope I'm wrong, of course.

    The Seinfeld DVD shortage reminds me of the famous Irish cereal famine of '72. Couldn't get a bowl anywhere. Bad. 'Tis a beautiful country though; lush rolling hills, and the peat, ah the peat.

    (p.s. I'm ashamed of the other posters here -- if this had been a Python thread, it would have degenerated WELL before now!)

    Okay, ... I don't know anyone who wouldn't buy every single season of Seinfeld on DVD!!! That is a sure-fire winner -- except for Seinfeld there has never been a series that made me laugh 'till I cried at every single episode. I don't know about the economics of syndication, but whoever owns the rights to this series is losing a TON of money by not releasing it on DVD. They just don't realize how incredibly well that would sell. People would still watch the re-runs, even if they did have it on DVD. The show is just that awesome!!!

    Well, there are some Seinfeld DVD's out there somewhere. He reportedly handed out a 4 episode DVD to guests at one of the farewell parties.

    This was reported in several publications like TV Guide, People etc.

    Yeah, prior to the airing of the final episode Jerry had a special DVD created containing his favorite episodes and scenes. He gave a DVD player and a copy of the DVD to each of his co-stars and the production crew as farewell gifts.

    Man, they have Buffy and Friends, but no Seinfeld. What kind of world are we living in? Well, at least we're going to have ST:TNG soon.
