When the hell is this going to come to dvd? I'm going through major Costanza withdrawl.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

this is from dvd.ign.com

------------
Do you have any info about the release of the Seinfeld TV series on DVD?

Jeremy Responds: Unfortunately, it's doubtfull we'll ever see Seinfeld on DVD. TBS, who runs the show in syndication, just recently paid more than $200 million for the exclusive rights to the series through 2011. It's doubtful that the studio that owns the show would want to jeopardize that much money by releasing it on DVD.

So then why are Friends and Simpsons on DVD? Aren't they constantly on reruns as well? It seems to me the company would make money...

Might be because Friends tends to run on WB stations and Simpsons on Fox stations, so they really aren't losing anything.

we need to see this with full commentary. Even though Jerry most likely would not do it, i bet Larry David would. He will do a better job anyway
