Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
It's hard not to be enthused by this irreverent, often outrageous comedy series developed by and starring Seinfeld co-creator Larry David. Released from the constraints of network TV, David has used this HBO series to push the envelope in more ways than one, gleefully reveling in tastelessness whenever necessary to advance one of his savagely funny story lines. He plays himself -- a successful comedy writer and performer who is developing projects at what seems a leisurely pace, and mainly interacting in daily life with his wife (Cheryl Hines), agent (Jeff Garlin), and various Hollywood pals. The ten episodes of the 2001 season have as an underlying theme Larry's attempt to launch a series starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus (playing herself, of course). Memorable episodes include the self-referential "The Car Salesman," in which Seinfeld costar Jason Alexander (also playing himself) tries to interest Larry in helping him develop a show about an actor who can't find work because he's typecast as the "jackass" character on a hit series. Louis-Dreyfus appears in the jaw-dropping "Shrimp Incident," which finds Larry branded as a misogynist after uttering the "c" word at a poker game, and Shaquille O'Neal guest stars as himself in "Shaq," in which Larry becomes a villain when he accidentally trips the basketball player by stretching his legs while seated courtside. The season's high point is arguably "The Doll," a hilarious comedy of errors that has Larry traumatizing the young daughter of an ABC executive by cutting off her doll's hair. David's offbeat sensibilities, which helped elevate Seinfeld to a sitcom landmark, get free rein in this wildly creative and unpredictable show, a small-screen masterpiece in its own right.

We loved the EARLY Seinfeld when Larry David was one of the writers. Some people prefer the later Seinfelds, which we felt were not at all funny. If you know what I mean, you will like Curb Your Enthusiasm. It is similar humor, humor in everyday things and humor in the people you meet. It is NOT AT ALL appropriate for children or, in my opinion, teenagers. Very funny adult humor.
