The sixth season of critical darling Curb Your Enthusiasm delivers the same Larry David and his life of absurd self-sabotage that has entertained viewers for nearly a decade. With an almost reality-TV improv feel, Curb follows the Seinfeld co-creator through his miseries and mishaps brought about by his George Costanza-like neuroses and over analysis of everyday situations.

As with previous years, Season 6 is tied together by a single overarching plot. In the first episode, Larry's wife convinces him to take in a family displaced by a recent hurricane. The Black Family (whose name mirrors their race, a joke not lost on Larry) work their way into each episode, as either an extra source of frustration for our perpetually exasperated hero or as a source for an alternative perspective when providing Larry with advice. In another example of art imitating life, a second extended plot develops involving the breakdown of Larry's marriage, just as he is going through divorce proceedings in real life. Cheryl's character doesn't seem as important in Season 6, also possibly the product of Larry's real life matrimonial problems. His frustrations with Cheryl take a meaner, more mocking tone (her absurd reaction to Larry and the Blacks desire to use non-recycled toilet paper being the best example). Larry's real life soon-to-be former wife is a champion of environmental and other causes, a trait she shares with Cheryl and one that Season Six paints as naÔve and misguided.

Richard Lewis, Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen continue their real life roles as Larry's friends and have no problems mocking their own image (where else can you see great moments like an uninvited drunken limo driver crashing a party and taunting Ted Danson by calling him "Becker"?).

I love, love, love this show. I've watched it since it began and still love it and can't wait for more new episodes. This is definately one of the best seasons. He almost always gets better over time. And while it only has 10 episodes, they are all terrific. The situations he gets himself in are hilarious. I cringe each time he either puts his foot in it or someone takes him the wrong way. I felt for him when he was relaying what he'd heard in the bathrooms at the hospital and when he was telling the story, someone assumed that he was actually the one who'd said it and the trouble that follows.
Here is some detail on what happens throughout this season.

MEET THE BLACKS
Cheryl learns about a program to help disenfranchised families displaced by a major hurricane, and tries to talk Larry into hosting a family. Meanwhile, Larry's quest to find the perfect excuse for missing parties backfires on him, and he's disgusted by the choice of cake Marty Funkhauser recommends.

THE ANONYMOUS DONOR
Larry decides to be nice for a change and actually donate money to a worthy cause. But when he's revealed to be the anonymous donor for the hospital wing, Larry goes ballistic. He then accuses a dry cleaner of giving his jersey to someone else, and goes off in search of it. Meanwhile, Larry, Jeff, and the Blacks get their reputation stained.

THE IDA FUNKHOUSER ROADSIDE MEMORIAL
A sweaty $50 bill, a sample abuser, a roadside memorial, and a private school superintendent are all things that intimidate Larry while he tries to help Marty Funkhauser cope with the sudden death of his mother in a freak accident.

This season of Curb Your Enthusiasm was just as funny as the previous seasons. I personally prefer the first and second seasons to all the others (they just felt different) but there's no arguing that the sixth season was hilarious.

As usual, there are one or two weak episodes with some forced plot twists, but the better episodes more than make up for these weak points. The overall arc for the season was a black family (coincidentally named "the Blacks") who move in with the Davids after their home is destroyed in a hurricane.

To say anymore would ruin things, so I'll do no such thing. The bottom line is: If you enjoyed the other seasons, you will enjoy this one. Very simply, the show hasn't lost its edge yet. This is a fantastic set to add to your collection.

I watched every episode this season (sometimes twice in one week if I missed a few jokes!) and I thought Larry was absolutely brilliant. I loved the Black family (their interactions with Larry were hilarious and seemed so natural and effortless)and the other major story arc (the split with his wife) was not only well-done but very true to life ("Sorry Larry...we're going with Cheryl"...hate to say it, but this happened to me in my own life!!!) The episode where Larry was donating a wing to charity (but wanted to be "anonymous") was classic. There were also some great moments with Jeff's wife (and her foul mouth)...the episode centering around masturbation was quite memorable. Overall, a great season, certainly worth owning because every time I watch CYE reruns, I catch more and more little details I missed the first time. Long live Larry!
