(HBO Comedy Series) Larry David has a charmed life–success, famous friends, a patient wife, a dedicated manager and a trendy new restaurant…so what’s his problem? See Larry spike some brownies, recommend a deranged nanny, thwart an Alanis Morissette concert, rob a grave and get a kid drunk. Along the way he encounters Martin Scorsese, Cheri Oteri, Richard Lewis, Krazee-Eyez Killa, and the Holy Family…and manages to piss them all
The third season of HBO’s comedy sensation offers more of the same. “Not that there’s anything wrong with that,” to quote Larry David’s other television series, a certain little sitcom called Seinfeld. Consequently, Curb Your Enthusiasm’s junior year me… More >>

    this show has been very funny to luagh at. this series is very funny in alot of ways tat are different from any other show. it looks like live television, and looks unlike another show, buit the context of this show is a fortune. yes there arent many episodes a season, but if you watch to many at one time you will get burned out on it. rent first and see if you injoy then buy later like i did.

  2. This is the worst show ever produced – taking advantage of Seinfeld fans misguided loyalty, and the wrongful thought, that since this is made by Larry Davis, it has to be good… it don’t!

    After a couple of episodes (if you actually get this deep into it before throwing away the dvd’s) you realise that the dialogue actually follows the same structure and speech patterns that Seinfeld does – only this show has no proper actors or comedians to deliver the lines.

    It’s stiff, slow, tries to hard but keeps on failing, annoying, embarrassing and quite frankly a disaster.

    I have no idea who these guys are that gives this 5 stars, but they have to be family of Larry’s.

    I bought the entire series based on the stupid 5 star reviews and the fact that I too thought that ‘Larry Davis, this can only be good’ – but I’ve had to through the dvd’s out without even seeing all the episodes.

    Waste of time and money!!!

  3. The show has lost a little momentum each year … by the fourth season I would say it’s not so much as funny a lot of the time. The third season is still funny, albeit not as funny as the first two. “The Terrorist Attack” was definitely a brilliant episode, raising the Seinfeld-esque question about the etiquette of knowing a terrorist attack is coming – who do you tell? Your best friend? Your secretary? The building janitor? The “Crazy-Eyes Killa” episode was notably great also. But be ready for this show to slow down.

    Larry David is simply too funny.

    I am extremely enthusiastic about this 3rd Season release.

    My enthusiasm is uncurbed.

  5. I really, really want to like Curb. Since I hadn’t seen it originally on HBO, I rented the first season. Most of the episodes passed without my laughing once. I didn’t think they were bad, just not funny. (and I say this as someone who liked Seinfeld because its characters were essentially self-centered and rather unappealing…much like Larry David in this series.)

    Thinking that maybe I just hadn’t seen enough of Curb to get a true picture of it, I got the third season. Well, I did laugh a few times. But watching more episodes made me aware of what makes me uncomfortable about the series:

    - being a workingperson yutz in Upper West Side New York, interacting with waitresses and bodega owners and George Steinbrenner, is funny. Being a yutz in Beverly Hills with more money than God, whining and being obnoxious and always needing to be the contrarian center of attention, isn’t funny. It makes me wonder why anyone wants to be around Larry David, the character — unless the other characters are either sucking up to his wealth or are yutzes themselves.

    -but we never get to learn if the other characters are yutzes because the focus is squarely on Larry David. Whether it’s Larry’s wife or manager, or the many ‘guests,’ none of them are given much room to do anything besides being passive foils displaying varying degrees of weariness. (The character of Larry’s wife is particularly given to not much more than shrugging and eye-rolling.)

    The bottom line is, I just don’t get it. And with the third season episodes, I’m giving up on trying.
