Editorial Reviews

Candid, unsparing and self-deprecating, Curb Your Enthusiasm is driven by the off-kilter comic vision of Larry David, co-creator and co-executive producer of another lauded comedy series, Seinfeld. David’s HBO series blurs the lines between reality and fiction, as he and a cast of real and fictional characters are followed by a ubiquitous camera that chronicles the private, often banal world of a (relatively) public man. The series proves how seemingly trivial details of one’s day-to-day life – a trip to the grocery store, a remark at a dinner party, a fender-bender – can precipitate a “Murphy’s Law” chain of misfortune to hilarious effect. To keep the narrative spontaneous, Curb is shot without a script; cast members are given scene outlines and often improvise lines as they go.

Customer Reviews

Enjoyed every second of watching.

Like Seinfeld, the whole show is pretty much about "nothing."

This is one of the best comedy TV shows ever!

Larry David is a comical genius, and I personally can't ever imagine this show getting old. Not only is the material hilarious, but it also has a little dark humor to it. Like Seinfeld, the whole show is pretty much about "nothing." It's just about people getting wrapped up in silly, trivial issues every day, and is kind of a parody of life itself. When asked where the title of the show came from, Larry's response was: "It reflects my perception that many people seem to live their lives projecting false enthusiasm, which I believes is used to imply that "they are better than you."

Do I miss Cheryl? Yes, I do. I would have chosen to keep her in the cast, but her departure opened up a lot more opportunities to put Larry in hilarious and awkward situations with women. And Larry is the same as he is with women as he is with everyone else - he acts just like Larry. Leon is a great part of the cast - he's very "Krameresque" with his constant following of Larry wherever he goes and mooches off of him, but he says the most funny, silly, random things.

I have all seven seasons so far, and can't wait to add this to my collection! The replay value is great. I go through them about once a year and I still laugh as hard as ever. It's possible to watch these shows out of order and laugh, but there are enough life changes throughout the series (unlike Seinfeld) that make it more logical to watch it in order.

There better be another season!

It is without reservation that I share my endless "uncurbed" enthusiasm for this series, which is easily one of the best on TV. I own the DVDs from all seasons, and usually can't wait to acquire the next one. I watch them over and over and am never bored. The brilliant improvisational acting, as well as the hilarious humor and fabulous ideas for every episode are of the highest calibre. I highly recommend every season of "Curb your enthusiasm".

This season was just as hilarious as the one's with Cheryl. I especially loved the Palestinian kebab vs the Jewish deli episode. No comedy today can hold a candle to Curb.

I couldn't agree more with the reviewer AKW. There is quote on the back cover of the DVD from a professional reviewer that the 8th is the best season ever. It is not. Unfortunately is the worst (I am sorry to say that, but it is the truth). But Larry even on his worst moments is better than everybody else. So I think it is still worth watching.

Dialogues were contrived. I didn't sense spontaneity. Larry was too on the edge, forceful, losing the surprise element. I hope that Curb is not getting old. He tried a change and I commend him for that. The problem is that the end result is not as funny. Maybe the problem was on the execution. I am not sure.

The best episode is the "Palestinian Restaurant". That's the episode that the season will remembered for. But even on this one I felt that it was a missed opportunity.

The episode with Ricky Gervais had its moments, the one with Michael J. Fox was mostly flat.

The DVD extra has a 90 minutes quite funny conversation with the cast and Brian Williams. Larry said that he lost his Blackberry and all his notes that was saved in the device. I wonder if it was the notes for this season.

I agree with other reviewers that by Season 8, CYE had lost most of its steam and Larry's exploits seem to fit more organically to SoCal then to New York, although I recall Larry's escapades with Mel Brooks--who could forget Anne Bancroft's appearance!--were among the series' best.

However, the panel discussion that took place at the 92nd street Y ([...])included as Bonus Material proved riveting. With moderator Brian Williams playing the foil to David, Garlin and Susan Esseman as well as Cheryl Hines, who was surprisingly, and somewhat disappointingly, demure, the discussion was every bit as good as any of the episodes on DVD #2, which I rented from Netflix and was, at first, a bit crestfallen that there were only three episodes on it...but then I discovered the bonus features. There is also an additional short ten minute feature entitled Leon's Guide to NYC which does not disappoint especially compelling to fans of Leon. ---Harper Nicole Anderson, Cal-Berkeley.

I have been a devoted fan of "Friends" and "Curb your Enthusiasm" w/Larry David himself.
This particular season is not as good as the others. I believe that (almost) "killing" off the Cheryl Hines character, his wife on the show, has diminished the humourous situations.
Suzie and Wanda continue being great additions, and of course great best pal Jeff, Richard, etc. A great cast, and worth watching, but I miss Cheryl.
Th Eighth Season was not as funny or engaging.

Cheryl's a great character, but she really doesn't make or break the show. This season was incredible. No drop in quality whatsoever. If this is the last season, as much as I want more, I'd be satisfied with it ending this way.

How Many More Seasons?
Hard to say. It'd be nice if he ended at 10, with a nice and perfect 100.. er, 101, probably. But it'll be another year before Curb 9, if it happens at all. I don't see why it wouldn't, honestly.

Larry IS done with a new movie that will premiere on HBO soon though. After that I'm sure we'll... Read More
