    The title is the only thing that's obscure about this hilarious in-your-face comedy. [12 Sep 2002]

    Larry David's greatest asset as a comedian and a writer has always been the ability and, more importantly, the courage to straddle the razor blade's difference between funny and painful. [13 Sep 2002]

    "Curb" is as funny, in its pulling-teeth-with-a-pliers kind of way, as anything on TV. [13 Sep 2002]

    I think Curb Your Enthusiasm is funnier, smarter and classier than Seinfeld. [13 Sep 2002]

    The improv-based exchanges don't even sound showy anymore. The regular cast members, and even such recurring celebrity guests (usually portraying pettier versions of themselves) as Ted Danson and Richard Lewis, have gotten so skilled at this unusual manner of filmmaking that "Curb Your Enthusiasm" feels almost like reality TV.

    I tend to watch "Curb Your Enthusiasm" with open-mouthed amazement... The show is a drop-dead accurate, edge-of-your-seat depiction of the minefield through which we all tread everyday in our interactions with spouses, friends, business associates and that most dreaded of all groups, total strangers.

    Larry David's sitcom remains an awe-inspiring (and hilarious) exercise in comedic extremes of chaos and control.

    David's ability to hone in and magnify the most socially awkward moments in life is almost frightening. If this series didn't make you double over in laughter every couple of minutes, it would be a whole other kind of torture.

    The comedy is so darkly cynical that it's off-putting. If you're a glass-half-full kind of guy like me, it's hard to make the show part of your regular TV menu. [13 Sep 2002]

    Good as "Curb" has been, this 10-episode season should be the year it gets recognized as HBO's finest comedy. [11 Sep 2002]
