Insanely Great...Funnier than Seinfeld,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you can stand Seinfeld with no language restrictions, this show is insanely great. Larry David is a genius, and doesn't fear making himself look like a totally self-centered and horrid person. The fact that his character is "Larry David, the Creator of Seinfeld" in the show wonderfully blurs the line between reality and fiction.
When you see this show, you will realize that the greatest part of the Seinfeld show was from the mind of Larry David. This alone makes the show fascinating to watch.
There are wonderful recurring cameos by Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Richard Lewis, and a host of others.
There is a significant level of discomfort watching this show, and you might even find yourself yelling at the TV as Larry David digs himself into ever deeper holes through his habit of obfuscation and dissassembly. The hilarious thing is that his intentions are generally good, but the result is disastrous. It's wonderful that he never really learns why people end up despising him so much. If he did, he wouldn't get into so much trouble and the show wouldn't be nearly as funny.
The humor is very REAL, despite coming from rather outlandish circumstances at times. If you have any appreciation of existential humor, you MUST see this show. It is a true treasure of modern comedy.
