<% rating = 5 %>Folks, the wait is over, Seinfeld is coming to DVD on November 23, 2004. Columbia will be releasing episodes from the first three seasons on two four-DVD volumes as well as combined in a boxed gift set. Each volume will include about 12 hours of extra content and will list for $49.95. The gift set will retail for $119.95 and will include a limited-edition script, “Monk’s Diner” salt-and-pepper shakers, collectible playing cards and yada, yada, yada.
UPDATE: These DVDs will look and sound better than ever. To provide the best picture and sound quality possible, Castle Rock Entertainment, which produced the show, returned to the original film elements and spent many months digitally remastering every episode in high definition; the original analog audio tracks went through a similar process. SEINFELD: Volume 1 includes all 18 episodes of seasons one and two on four discs and SEINFELD: Volume 2, also on four discs, includes all 22 episodes from season three. Each volume will
be loaded with approximately 12 hours of exclusive special features from the
creative talents behind the show, including a full-length documentary,
extensive creator, cast and production commentaries, bloopers, deleted scenes,
exclusive never-before-seen Jerry Seinfeld stand-up comedy footage and trivia
pertinent to each season. Both releases feature the original NBC network
versions, 1-2 minutes longer than the syndicated versions and not seen since
their original broadcast runs. Additionally, Volume 1 features two versions
of the original pilot episode.
