    You will feel guilty for laughing so hard, which is, I suspect, precisely the reaction David wants.

    It takes at least two episodes for David's TV persona - the cantankerous, self-absorbed Hollywood writer whose best intentions always go horribly awry - to regain some degree of cozy familiarity. And that discomfort is one of the things that make Curb Your Enthusiasm so unusual and so funny. [3 Jan 2004]

    "Curb" never presents itself as anything but a cleverly plotted, deliberately offensive comedy. But it's more than a comedy: It's a comedy of manners, or bad manners; delightfully rude, and, in its unreal way, honest. [3 Jan 2004]

    With big laughs and inspired twists of spontaneous wit, "Curb Your Enthusiasm" remains a true original. It's Larry David's singular comic sensation, a masterful, wigged-out improv farce of Hollywood manners. [4 Jan 2004]

    This is the funniest TV show I've ever seen. It might also be the best comedy series ever made, period. [2 Jan 2004]

    The constant bickering would quickly wear thin in a (gulp!) "Curb Your Enthusiasm" marathon, but over the course of a half-hour or two, it's amusing to watch him play a human matchstick and light a fuse wherever he goes. [4 Jan 2004]
