    Now entering another wince-inducing season, Larry David proves again that he can mine gold over and over from the same idea.

    As twisted, and twistedly funny, as ever.

    Curb remains an acquired taste. Still, even if you never watched a minute of the previous seven seasons, you can tune in and get some laughs. Guilty and otherwise.

    Still, even if Curb has lost some of its original wallop, it remains a great comedy of manners.

    It's a funny episode, boisterously so in parts, but it's difficult to shake the feeling that we've seen this before. After eight seasons, it's started to become too easy to spot Curb Your Enthusiasm's patented ironic twists and callback gags coming a mile away.

    Larry still has it. Season's hilarious as always, dealing with the same everyday situations you are used to deal (complain and talk behind people's back, unlike Larry who loves confrontation) about. Expand

    Absolutely flawless season. Larry David could run this show forever and it would never lose its charm. The first few episodes were great but the last two or three were genius. The Parkinsons schtick was the highlight of the season...Michael J. Fox was fantastic as well. Expand

    The Palestinian Chicken episode is an absolute classic in my opinion, and a Top 5 episode of the series. Also cracked up over the episode with Ricky Gervais when Larry beats up a thug with the loaf of bread. LOL. And of course The Parkinson's episode at the end with Michael J. Fox is priceless. Expand

    Back to form! After a few weak seasons, eight returns to clever writting, well rounded episodes and much fun! Moving to New York gave some freshness the series needed after so much time. Expand

    Larry David is a tv juggernaut. He is as funny as ever getting himself into unusual and uncomfortable situations. His acting and writing is still sharp. This is one of the best shows out there. Expand

    As a huge fan of Curb I too must sadly submit a below par rating , I'm still enjoying it but not at the levels of previous shows , the laughs come but less frequently , and as Larry loves honesty and is never one to shirk the hard call , this is my call an average 5.... Expand

    I'm a big fan of Curb .. big fan. But Season 8 is mostly a dud. Larry does not seem to care too much about excelling this year. 7 of the 10 episodes are Zero material. We know he can do better: for example, Episode#3 really hits the mark! Brilliant! I want them all this good! Expand
