    For those of you who have never heard of it, it is a funny as hell show starring Larry David (co-creator of Seinfeld) and basically all he does is kind of cruise around, but certain things happen to him and by the end of the show all of these things kind of come together and it's actually really funny. I just got done watching one about half an hour ago... but since Larry David stars in it and writes it, it is actually a lot like Seinfeld. Anyone else watch?

    Watch it all the time. It seems to fit my comedy style a little bit better than Seinfeld.

    One of my all-time favourite shows. So many hilarious moments and very cleverly put together as well. Outstanding ensemble cast particularly the women...

    Have seen the first 4 series on DVD but thought that quality was dropping off slightly... is it still being made in the US?

    *chokes on pubic hair* :D

    I have the first 3 series on DVD, every episode is a work of genius.

    I like the few episodes I've seen a lot. Very funny.

    My mom happens to think it's way-inappropriate for a 13 year-old... bleh.

    I love Curbed, unlike Seinfeld which I could never quite get into.

    Larry's the master of putting his foot in it... :cool:

    I skipped the first 3 seasons on HBO and then saw 2 eps at a friends house. Ordered all 3 seasons on DVD and did a marathon over 2 weekends to catch up as Season 4 premiered. Funny as hell!!


    I just read they are doing a season 5.

    I love Curb, although last season certainly was not Larry's best work. I did enjoy some of the episodes though.

    Anyone care to list their favorite all time episodes? For me it's got to be either "Chet's Shirt" or "Thor."

    • Beloved Aunt
    • The Doll

    And any where Susie Greene goes ballistic.

    Yeah that was last season. It's already aired and is out on DVD. Rumor is it was the last season though.

    Funniest show ever I think.

    My recent favorite is 'Ski Lift'.
    "Huge Vagina..."

    My favorite episode has to be the one where he picks up a prostitute so he can use the car pool lane and make it to the baseball game without sitting in traffic.

    Just got into this recently and agree that it's one of the best shows around - right up there with The Office and similar in many ways.

    Of course, I've now been forced into buying and watching all the DVDs... :)

    I'm sure I read somewhere recently too that Larry David has confirmed that there'll be a sixth season. Not sure where that was now though.....

    Actually, they are doing a season 6. It was mentioned a week-ish ago.

    It is going to air some time in 2007.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm is probably my favorite show. I wish I had HBO so I could watch the 6th season when it airs, but I'm going to have to wait for the DVD.

    Favorite episodes: "The Doll", "The Baptism", and "The Grand Opening".

    I have seasons 1-5 on DVD and I love it. Larry David's awkwardness constantly makes me laugh. :D

    Ha ha! Love the show... a colleague made me watch season 4 two weeks ago, and I went straight out and bought first 3 seasons. Watched 1 and 2 now.

    A favourite scene has to be the F**k you session he has with Richard Lewis' girlfriend behind their partners backs, priceless... :D :D

    :D

    I have only seen a couple episodes but that one is brilliant!

    The part where he says something like, "I'm thinking about getting one of them plasma TV's, mount it up on the ceiling above my bed, and play Scarface on that **** 24-7." ROFL :D :D :D

    How about the "Trick or Treat" episode where Larry wouldn't give 2 girls candy on Halloween because they weren't wearing costumes? Classic

    I love C.Y.E. It is great comedy and hugely underrated here in Europe, if not the Netherlands.

    A while ago I heard a jewish writer say on television that that's because of the different views we (as in 'we Dutch people', as opposed to US citizens) have on Jews. We Europeans can not deal with jewish self mockery humor because of the 'guilt' we still feel towards the jews for the 2nd w.w.

    That's difficult for me to say because I'm not even a 2nd generation w.w.2 'victim' (my father was born 2 weeks before the liberation) but it's an interesting theory that's probably not completely false.

    I have been watching a lot of Woody Allen lately. I feel he has been a huge inspiration to L. David. I find it difficult to come to a conclusion other than that the idea for the scene you are talking about did not come from the 'black prostitute in the car' scene from Allen's Deconstructing Harry.

    I think it's also underrated here in the US.

    Really? It seems to have a good audience base and sells well on DVD. It doesn't get Soprano ratings, but it does very well for HBO.

    It may be a regional thing, I don't know. It's certainly part of the pop culture norm in NYC.

    Edit: Of course, Frisco, we're from the same region, so who knows...
