Seinfeld Seasons Five And Six

5

"Tom and Max took us to a 'new silly' and really gave us a second wind," remarks Jerry Seinfeld on the exemplary extras accompanying this eight-disc set. Certainly, the arrival of new writers Tom Gammill and Max Pross saw the sitcom forego any semblance of realism and push for more elaborately layered and surreal scenarios than ever before. The result is 46 episodes of genius lunacy yet to be surpassed on TV.

Highlights include Elaine dumping a boyfriend for not using an exclamation mark, George employing a lipreader as a 'secret weapon' at a party and Kramer inventing the male bra ("the bro"). There's also a masseuse who refuses to give boyfriends massages, a toilet-paper-hogging sex-line operator and the small matter of getting caught making out during Schindler's List...

BEST BIT Elaine tells Jerry she faked her orgasms with him. Every. Single. One.
