    Watching Jerry, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, and Michael Richards bounce off Larry David makes you realize what Curb had been missing: worthy opponents for Larry to argue and scheme with.

    You know you will laugh, but you know you will cringe. You know you will guffaw, but you'll also likely wince. It's hard to imagine comedy that's any edgier, without being topical, than this.

    The David of Curb is so scathingly direct that he’s also quite funny; half the time he’s just saying things that the rest of us are too polite or repressed to say.

    Reading that vague description, you are certain there is nothing in the show to make you laugh. But if you watch, I guarantee you will at least smile in spite of your better impulses. I'm sorry, but this is some of David's best work.

    With David's eccentricity permeating every aspect of the show, these new episodes feel more unrestrained than ever.
  6. It's vintage Larry - bad behavior that only gets worse as the half-hour goes on - and it begins to set the stage for the season's main event, the "Seinfeld" reunion that may or may not bring about another even more important one.
  7. I know there are a lot of people out there who can’t get enough of it, all the irritation and the narcissism and the racial tension and the yelling. But I’m not one of those people....Curb Your Enthusiasm leaves me just...well, a little bored.

    Television comedy has NEVER been this good. The 'Seinfeld reunion' is getting too much attention. Frankly, its not important at all. The show has been hilarious for 6 seasons, regardless of this type of publicity. Expand

    Classic show with yet another great season. I would have to put Curb your Enthusiasm into the category of the best comedy show on TV of all time. Seven seasons and Larry David hasn't produced a mediocre or even just good one yet. Expand

    This season pretty good. Pretty, pretty, pretty good. While episode three was not as funny as the first two, I think this season has the potential to be even better then season six. Look forward to the rest of the season. I have yet to be disappointed. Expand

    This show is one of the funniest shows ever created. The little nuances keep you watching. Larry is the most lovable ass that i have ever seen on television. Much like a fine wine, this show has done nothing but get better and better season, after season. Expand
