Seinfeld: Volume 3 is another great DVD set. Although most of the great episodes are in the beginning and middle of the season, this season has some classics. There are some deleted scenes as usual, Notes About Nothing on every episode as usual, and some scattered commentary... as usual. This is another must buy set for a Seinfeld fanatic.
