Seinfeld Season 8

4

Another month, another fine Seinfeld DVD release. The steady mainlining of Jerry, George, Kramer and Elaine has been one of the home-entertainment highlights of the last two years. It boggles the brain that a live-action sitcom should be so compactly plotted, character-rich and consistently, thigh-whackingly funny. Now for the bad news: by its own towering standards, Season 8 lacks some of the show’s spikier edges – the result, perhaps, of creator/ writer Larry David’s departure (though he’s still voicing George’s boss). But this boxset still bears its share of belters – ‘The Yada Yada’, ‘The Comeback’ and ‘The English Patient’ (in which Elaine gets dumped for not liking Anthony Minghella’s movie).
