BryceMD - Watched it once on TV
It got the funny baseline
DVEous - Yes, it is cropped
Seinfeld was NOT originally shot in a 16:9 format like some reviewers are claiming. It was shot on 35mm film which is actually a 3:2 format like DSLR’s shoot pictures or 35mm still film cameras.
Seinfeld should’ve been re-mastered in the original 4:3 broadcast format but in HD or now UHD by re-scanning the negative (which they did for this HD release, but chose 16:9 aspect ratio for some reason). Cheers did do it the right way and their HD re-master is in its original 4:3 aspect and looks good.
palermo!!! - Love this show but
Love they show
But I’m not paying 50 bucks for this kind of quality and it is on sale right now.
Unless you can get high DEF I wouldn’t pay more than 25 bucks for this tops.
Great show bad quality!!👎🏼
NHL NBA - Overpriced
Please lower the HD price for this show. Its way to high. And if possible please release this show in 4K.
mkjzna - Great series
Hard to beat Seinfeld
AudiophileAddict - The ratio is cropped.
I’d consider getting this if the episodes were in their original aspect ratio, but they’re not. Fix it.
Sailorjtaylor - Can’t scroll on iPad, cant view
It rubber bands to the beggining like a dial phone
jae_pie - Simply the best
I love this show. Forever.
Gdoodlefan - $49.99??!!
One of the best shows of all time...the complete box set for $49.99...you can’t afford not to buy it!!!
Tet Mayi - Very satisfied
As someone who originally enjoyed this series mainly on DVD in the original 4:3 aspect ratio, I have to say that I am more than happy with the HD version, which loses a bit of the picture on the top and bottom but adds some on the sides. It has obviously been done with care and the high-res scan looks as sharp as the sources allow, which is generally quite nice. I will enjoy this collection for years to come. Seinfeld feels as relevant and smart as ever (which is more than Friends can say; don't @ me). And the 90s throwbacks are good for nostalgia anyways. Highly recommended!
elks86 - Awesome deal
I cant pass on this complete series for $50. This is one of the best shows of all time.
Jon Stark - Best show ever
Just picked this up discounted to $78, great deal for this long-running show that is infinitely rewatchable. Don't let all these guys talking about how they botched it and it looks horrible scare you off, it looks great on my 65" calibrated OLED. Far, far better than it ever looked when I watched it when it was live. The pilot episode does have some weird vertical line pattern in some of it, but after that the tranferred film looks great.
The Q Godfather - Best of the best
Simply the first yet the best sitcom of all time
DxiXpn - FINALLY!
I've been waitng and wondering for years why Seinfeld wasn't on iTunes. I've bought 2 of the entire DVD colletions already; but now am buying the complete series here! Best show EVER! Thank you for finally adding it to iTunes!
inyourface52 - A show about nothing
I love this show! It never fails to make me laugh.
w3ak - Stay Away from the Vile, Grainy Cropped Mess
The file format, cropped to 16x9 aspect ratio, looks utterly terrible. I'm afraid were stuck with DVDs until this mess is revamped in its original format. Watch CHEERS to see how it should have been done. CHEERS, an older series, is stunning.
RYNSB - Botched release!
Seinfeld fans beware this release is SIGNIFICANTLY CROPPED! as someone who's watched the show hundreds of times, many scenes are completely zoomed in it's absurd! For example the S2E1 canataloupe scene you can't even see Kramer holding the fruit! In the stolen TV episode you can't see Jerry looking at the TV becasue the TV has been cropped! This is no good. We waited for literally YEARS for an HD verison and all we get is this. NO! A big fat NO!
Ytsejam58 - Rating is for presentation, not quality
If I was rating for quality I would give this 20 stars! I love seinfeld and it is so nice to finally be able to purchase it on iTunes. I personally don't have a problem with the 16x9 aspect ratio. aside from a couple of episodes where focus items become out of screen or awkwardly placed, like Kramer and the windshield/coffee table or when George is eating his snickers with a fork. But there is some misconception that it is just a zoomed in version. See, I compared the image to the ones on the DVD, and it is shortened on the top and the bottom, but somehow, we get to see more on the left and the right. Not that this makes a huge difference but it doesn't widen the field of vision which gives the performers more breathing room long ways rather then tall ways.
But my issue with this presentation that earns it 4 stars instead of 5, is the episode order. See. The DVDs have them ordered in the correct way, which is by when they were written and recorded. But NBC decided to screw things up for somewhere and shuffled a lot of the episodes up, to the point where a season 2 episode gets placed in the middle of season 3 which seriously messed up the continuity. On TV, they resolved this by adding a little forward by Jerry saying why this lapse in story happened but on iTunes or Hulu, there is no such thing, leaving the viewer to wonder dazed in confusion.
But if that's not a problem for you, go ahead! Buy the entire series, it's cheaper than buying the seasons individually. And once they are in your library you can mess with the episode order yourself to put them in the correct order.
I guess my only major problem would be the lack of "Inside Looks" and "Bloopers" Seinfeld bloopers are some of the best and always cheer me up if I'm feeling bad.
robbshirls - The wait is over!
Pre purchase review: I have waited so long for the complete Seinfeld series to be made available on iTunes and now that it is here, I am a little worried about the picture quality from other reviews that have been posted. I haven’t bought yet, but I want to IF the picture quality is worth it.
Post purchase review: The price dropped for the complete series from $99 to $79 and so I decided to go for it. I wasn’t the least disappointed. The show looks great and it is awesome to finally own it on iTunes!
Fred Suzhou - Best show ever !

piperville10 - $100?
Was going to buy this for $80 as it was when it was first released on iTunes now it’s back up to $100. Looks like I’ll hold off until the price drops.
Tillisrammstein - So excited for nothing 😔😔😔
I bought it downloaded it just for it to be zoomed in, cropped and looked really blown up. If that doesn’t bother you then you’ll love it because it’s Seinfeld
Sifu Emir R. Furuhende - 👏👏👏
This show finally being here is the greatest thing ever 😁
JohnnyReb1996 - Seinfeld!!!! Keep it ITunes!
Seinfeld is a hilarious comedy tv show. I highly recommend it.
als1 - HD 1080p or 720p
Are these in HD 1080p... or in 720p? The previews look like it is 720p. Can someone confirm?
Prior_Air-Force - Price-match??
iTunes, will you please price-match w/ VUDU?? VUDO has the Seinfeld series from 1-9 marked up to 70% off.
diehardapplefan - It has indeed been cropped
I can't believe I'm giving a 5-star show only 3 stars. But after so many years (a decade??) that I have waited for Seinfeld to come to iTunes, it is sad that the studio has botched this release. Finally we get a high quality HD scan from the original film that has been airing in recent years on broadcast TV. However, the other 2 reviewers are right. I just checked my original DVD source and yes, at least the first 4 episodes I checked all were cropped from the original. The top and bottom have been cut off in order to fit within the 16x9 aspect ratio. It is too bad that they didn't just release an HD resolution of the original 4x3 aspect ratio. To me, this is a problem because some visual gags that have something out of the new crop are now lost on the viewer in this version. In the preview for "The Robbery" when jerry points his remote to his missing TV, you can't even tell it's missing unless you had the original DVD release to see the empty shelf he is pointing to. I'm sure this will not be the only example. I doubt we will ever see a re-release to fix this. Ugh 😔
travispschmidt - Finally! Love this show
Did this just happen... could not be more excited to integrate this to my Apple account and devices. I watch this show over and over and over. It is simply amazing!
LJib78 - Poor Format
Five stars for the show minus two for the format. I read the two conflicting reviews regarding the picture format. I own the DVD series and decided to compare the two and the picture IS CROPPED. While it is nice the show is finally available on itunes, it is definitely not for those who want the show as it originally aired.
alittlebrittle - “It’s about NOTHING!”
..and exactly why I love it. Watching Seinfeld is like going home, only much MUCH more hilarious, and it encompasses all that was great about television before “reality TV” took over. From parking your car, to wearing suede in the rain, to waiting for a table when you’re really hungry, giving “the half-turn and stare” when someone behind you in a movie theatre is talking, or saying the word “salsa”, there is rarely a day that goes by without relating some of life’s nonsense and minutiae to a Seinfeld episode...and it’s all the funnier and light-hearted for it.
I know I sound like That Guy when I state that “they don’t make ‘em like this anymore”, but when re-watching Seinfeld, Friends, Frasier, Cheers, etc., and comparing them to the utter dross of The Kardashians and “Real Wives of...” etc. and the meanness, violence and downright depressing content of too many to list (Derek, Duck Dynasty, Honey Boo-Boo, come to mind) this statement couldn’t be more apt. This is worth every penny for its anti-depressant properties alone. We really need A LOT more of this kind of “NOTHING!”
bbrosemer - The best show
mmbl - The best
Finally the wait it’s over. I just got it and checked out the first episode and there’s extra snippets of Jerry’s stand up routine you don’t see on tv. It’s the best Jerry, the best! Thank you iTunes.
pholly - Some people are idiots
These aren’t zoomed in or cut, they were originally filmed in 16x9. There will however be the occasional scene that is zoomed and cut because there wasn’t a widescreen source available (the episode with the NFL or the episode with the NY marathon are two examples) but it’s obvious so you can easily see the difference and happens so rarely it’s not a big deal.
jsknauer - About Time
Now all itunes needs is Becker and That 70s Show.

SubodhMahat - Best sitcome ever
Seinfeld is undoubtedly the best sitcome ever.
Feldmeister - *Unbeatable*
'Seinfeld' is the greatest show in the history of television—no question. Nothing has come close to its unique combination of mundane social observations, witty writing and zany situations. Not to mention, Jerry finished the series on a high and it's still quoted to this day. It's great to have it in this collection on iTunes.

Why no iTunes extras. There are loads on the dvds. I hope they add for free soon and not ask us to buy again for a better version.
arielsf - Horrible Quality
One of the best (if not the best) TV shows ever... iTunes version however looks like it’s been exported from VHS. Raised it with them, they re issued a copy but it was the same quality. Their next reply was “maybe it’s because the show was made in the 90s, you should leave a review”... I wouldn’t buy this if I were you.
Tibbs1976 - Finally
Love the show so thank you for finally bringing it to ITunes . Price is great too
