    Curb is one of the greatest tv shows ever made. Part of the trifecta of most fantastic comedy shows ever: peep show, arrested development and CYE.

    I am happy to describe this show as a dark, disturbing, vulgar, insensitive, paradoxical, unconventional, selfish, SEINFELD-ISH and all the other thing things that would look & feel offending in the real world. BUT ITS JUST GREAT TO WATCH ON THE SCREEN!! I just cant get enough.

    Some episodes are so so, however, most are "pretty, pretty, pretty good". Sometimes they are unbelievably funny!

    Is anyone more annoying than Larry David? I've been repeatedly told how great this show is, and have dutifully tried to watch it more than once. By the 5th season the neurosis is a eye-poking out levels. Most of the time I wanted to hit Larry David than have to spend one more second watching it. Ugh.

    Best comedy on TV. HBO certainly has it down, and this is one of their several jewels.

    Absolutely brilliant. The first episode made me laugh my balls off. This season is looking to be just as good as the last four, which were all hilarious. Right now, this is the funniest show on T.V.

    feeling a little forced compared to previous seasons - the "jesus chase" scene was ugly and extremely awkward. and yet... still the funniest show on television.

    Larry's character needs to start working or just get out of the house, because it's turning into Everybody Hates Larry.

    Together with Deadwood, the only things worth watching. Well, maybe the Daily Show, too.

    This season's meandering quality and sparkless-ness is shocking when compared to the last 4 seasons. It seems it's all way out situations with no conclusions. One example from an earlier season: who else could not only make adult survivors of incest funny, but create a conclusion that would keep you in amazement for days.

    This series by far well surpasses any tv series to ever air on any kind of tv channel. How Larry David keeps it alive after 5 seasons is astonashing, never the less it is perfection that should continue on till his death. I was scared at the end of the 10th episode, but was quickly relieved that it may continue on! =)

    This last season was what got me hooked!! I'd never seen "Curb" before and after I watched all of season 5 I ran out and bought the past 4 seasons. Come on! Picking up a hooker to get into the carpool lane and then getting high with her and his father! Does it get any better? NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this show!

    When watching the fifth seaseon of CYE you cannot compare it to previous seasons, that just wouldn't be fair. Of course its not going to live of to the first four but you have te look at the fact that compared to every other comedy series, maybe with the exception of scrubs, is nowhere near as good as this. The End, and The Sedar, and The Christ Nail were my personal favorites. But When watching the fifth seaseon of CYE you cannot compare it to previous seasons, that just wouldn't be fair.

    Hilarious with insane Larry. His little nitpicks makes the show one of its kind. A great follow up for Seinfeld lovers.

    Awesome show. I remember saying to my friend, and I firmly believe this: Curb is to Seinfeld as a nicotine patch is to a cigarette. :)

    I am from the UK and it is rarely shown over here. So I bought series two on amazon. It is truly a work of art and Larry David must be a genius.

    "Curb" may be ridiculously silly, but, unlike "Extras," its shenanigans are inventive.
  2. It's a testament to Curb's cleverness that what's now rote--Larry offends, we cringe--can still be so surprising.
  3. The show gets back to where it belongs: under Larry's expansive roof and inside his incessantly neurotic, disgracefully tactless and unerringly heartless skin.
