    PLEASE GIVE US SEINFELD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Since M*A*S*H, the Simpsons, Monty Python, and countless other T.V. series are being released, why not the greatest show of all time?

    Well, my opinions on Seifeld aside
    I'm sorry, Seinfeld is owned by Warner Bros. who have said that TV on DVD belongs in "best-of" sets. So that's all you'll ever get. I don't think Seinfeld, unlike Friends has a large foreign following, so importing is out

    We can only hope that Warner eventually realizes that there is NO SUCH THING as "best of" when it comes to Seinfeld.
    After all, it doesn't cost anything to hope. I can only assume that they don't have a clue as to the amount of loot they could make off this. Oh well

    Somebody posted recently that Jerry Seinfeld said there were no near-term plans for any DVD releases since the series was still making too much $ in syndication. I wouldn't expect any DVDs soon.

    Seinfeld is a Columbia/TriStar.
    I feel your pain. I really want it too. [​IMG]

    Well then, that's even worse, as CTHV have basically nixed the idea of TV altogether
    NO DVDS FOR YOU!

    I want Seinfeld, but will not buy the "best of" boxsets. Give us the whole season!

    I'd buy Seinfeld in digitally remastered season by season boxed sets. If any of the later seasons were framed for HDTV, then I'd expect 1.78:1 enhanced widescreen versions too.
    The shows don't get old IMHO. I laugh my arse off every time I see a repeat (which is a lot since my damn Fox syndicate keeps showing the same few episodes over and over and over again).
    A damn fine ensemble cast; one of the best in TV's history. Even my old, stodgy folks get a kick out of it.

    When I originally posted this, I was sort of hoping that everyone was going to lie & tell me that the show was "in the works". I never thought everyone was going to be honest. Damn you for being right! Someone please LIE to me, just so I can keep living in my fantasy world! Why must you people always be right!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The Castle Rock logo doesn't appear until the 8th & 9th season episodes.

    I want Seinfeld on DVD in season-by-season format. I no longer buy best-of DVD's. I only buy in season-by-season format.

    It goes without saying that I'd buy Seinfeld on DVD in a heartbeat. I do agree, though, that they would have to be season by season sets.

    And when you do the "pilot/ complete first season" include the original versions, and then the 'revisionist' versions as well.

    If possible, they should put the pilot, first season and second season together since that would total 16 episodes, much closer to a normal season than 5.
