Box Set Binge

Seinfeld Seasons 1-7, All4

Widely regarded as the greatest-ever sitcom (which it is), Seinfeld fell foul to terrible scheduling on this side of the Atlantic, but became a cult classic. In the USA it's treated with justifiable reverence.

These first seven seasons – up until co-creator Larry David left – are basically incomparable. If you happy to get stuck at home for the foreseeable future, this show will keep you grinning through it all.

Stars Jerry Seinfled, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards.
