Seinfeld Script Search:

Why pay so much??

I just saw a commercial for the "official" Seinfeld DVDs on a preview for 50 First Dates. So far, it seems that they will cos $50 per season (maybe $50 for the first 2, but 50 each after that). Why would anyone pay $400 for the "official" DVDs when they can get pretty good versions of the same thing off Ebay for around $100? I understand, commentary and extras, fancy artwork and covers, and better quality on the official DVDs, but $50 per season is ridiculous! I love Seinfeld and was extremely excited when I saw it they were making them, but I think anything over $150-200 for all of the episodes is a ripp-off. What does everyone else think?

Just my $.02.

The price will remain that high since the demand is so high. Just depends on how bad you want the DVDs

$50 is the "standard" price for a TV show season (4 DVDs), why should Seinfeld cost less?

There are alot of DVD sets that are cheaper then $50. It's all in the whole "Seinfeld" thing. The demand is very high for these to be released. They know they can get that much for them. So they may as well go for it. After the novelty wears off,the price may go a little bit down. People don't mind spending $50 here and there. If they released the entire series at once,they would not sell as much. It's a bit pricey but,I am so sick of watching my very worn out VHS tapes that I will be first in line when released... Smile

I'd buy them for $100/season just because I have been waiting for this for so long. I think its going to be wonderful to hear what Larry David has to say as well as the rest of the cast. This is honestly, THE GREATEST SHOW OF ALL TIME!

I'm glad I don't have any interest in dvd bonuses, because I don't think there will be anything new in the episodes.

The Sopranos is about $80 a season. Some comedies are around $40, but $50 seems reasonable. It's not like you'll be putting up all the money at once. They'll spread the release of all of the seasons out a lot. I've had every episode on tape since 1997, then taped the last 2 seasons live.
