I bought Curb Your Enthusiasm with one real expections. I am a marine in Iraq and I happen to see it at the local px. I am so glad that I bought it. Everything that happens in the show is hilarious. You find something funny or different every time you watch it, definately an adult comedy. I find myself watching over and over again, not due to a lack of DVD's I might add (we have plenty). It is like the Seinfeld that you always wanted, but couldn't play on basic television. You wil either love this show, or not get it at all, if you do get it, it's a homerun.

The third season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is the best yet. I don't know how one goes up from 5 stars, but somehow they managed to do it. The main characters are the same as from the first two seasons, with Larry David playing himself, Jeff Garlin as Jeff Greene (Larry's agent), and Cheryl Hines as Cheryl David (Larry's wife). Also, as with the first two seasons the dialogue is improvised, and the shows focus on a single character (Larry) as opposed to an ensemble as was the case with "Seinfeld".

As with the first two seasons, there are ten episodes in the season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm". This season, the season long plot is Larry investing in a restaurant along with several other people (e.g. Ted Danson, Michael York) and the problems they have along he way (e.g. finding and losing chefs, uniforms for the wait staff, a restaurant critic, etc.). Each episode also has its own plot, which cover a wide variety of subjects such as religion (Christian Science, nativity scenes), Terrorist attacks, mourning, pets, and much more. All the episodes are very funny, but "Krazee-Eyez Killa", "The Terrorist Attack", and "The Grand Opening" are not to be missed.

This DVD box set includes 2 DVDs, which have all 10 episodes, as well as a couple of excerpts from the "U.S. Comedy Arts Festival" in which members of the cast and directors discuss the show and their favorite scenes.

CYE has matured to move away from the single, self-enclosed episode format to offer an overarching storyline. The first episode kicks off the main theme of Larry investing in a restaurant with celebrities Ted Danson and Michael York. The restaurant story wonderfully ties together the 10 miniplots, each dealing with several different themes. Season 3 covers the threat of a terrorist attack, piñatas, tipping, a corpse-sniffing dog, affinity between bald men, house tours, pubic hairs, pet allergies, accusations of stalking, marital jealousy, gossip, Bartlett pears and more. Is it okay to ask a mourning widow where her late husband bought the shirt he's wearing in a photo? Can you throw trash in someone else's trash can? Can you turn down a house tour? Is it okay to congratulate someone on his kid's big penis? Nothing is holy, nothing off limits, especially not religion. David tackles Christian Science's aversion to medicine, Jews with tattoos, and spreads his own brand of Christmas cheer when he ruins a manger scene by eating Baby Jesus.

Of all three seasons so far, Season 3 is not only the most quotable, it's also the most uplifting. Larry still gets into heaps of trouble and you'll be cringing at the masterful derailments and degeneration into total chaos, but in the end, Larry actually emerges with his head held high. You'll start to understand the man. You'll know that he doesn't hate people. He just hates the ones he knows.

LD falters a bit here and there, but the basic trend of CYE's development is up, up, up! Every season is better than the previous one, but you can definitely pick out highlights from each one that have hilarious applications to everyday living. For some reason a lot of people don't get it...I think some people are just not amused by the potentialities of absurd humor in life's daily occurences. The only episode in this season that doesn't measure up to the others is Chet's Shirt (the first one)...and, I think that is because it is the set-up...LD had to pack in a bunch of info 'et res' for the remainder of the season. I just can't get over how much funnier this show is than Seinfeld...The kid with the huge member...The rapper who throws trash on the floor so others can pick it up...the bra-sniffing dog...the jewish mom with the tat...the chef with Tourette's...the christian scientist with the peanut allergy...the restuarnt with the all Scientologist waitstaff...LOL! and the best part is--Season 4 was even better than this one!!!!

I think Larry and company are at their best (by an aunt hair mind you)with season III. It's the most complete in terms of what they are trying to do. Larry pushes the boundaries of what is socially acceptable more in this season than any other. The story lines and the fact that the shows are so different from one another, makes this season more special to me than the others.

The restaurant investment is this season's theme captures the conventional life of an otherwise very wealthy and unconvential life style, very well. We are reminded of how wealthy Larry David is in that he invests in a restaurant "cause it might be fun". The rich guy with little to occupy his time, but at the same time showing us that he is like the rest of us in many ways. The uber rich can have those little inconsequential concerns that we all have. It's what makes them the same as the rest of humanity and this season brings home that point better than the others. Larry is questioning convention extremely well here.

Above all, Larry David is playing Larry David. This is not a reality show but it is relatively close to Larry's real life I would imagine. It is contrived in that it is a situational comedy that bleeds reality. This is a situational comedy reality show (SRCS). Now, someone just has to coin a name to go with the phrase to describe it since it is truly one of the few if only SRCS shows that exist. The honesty, reality and comedy are what make this show work. Great writing, some actors playing themselves, situations that happen to us all, action and reaction we can all relate to and the finest comedy writing on tv since the Simpsons IMHO.
