Just got back from Best Buy with "Curb" seasons 1 & 2 DVDs. Never saw the show even once... so for 60 bucks, it had better be GOOD! Jimmy's not expecting another Seinfeld... but still has high expectations from Larry.

Well, It's almost time to get drunk and check it out....

Somebody lent me the whole first season a while back. I liked it alot, but didn't fall in love with it. I think if i saw it in once-a-week doses, I'd still be watching it. But I ended up wathing about 8 episodes in a day and found myself starting to cringe at all the squirmingly uncomfortable situations he's always in. I guess that might mean that it was very well done, because he succeeded in making me feel his discomfort.
But then again, I can sense the slightest human suffering.

I rented the First and Second Seasons a while back and i thought the show was great. You can definetely feel "the seinfeld" in this show, but with the Larry David edge. It's also pretty cool to see Julia and Jason make guest appearances. But as good as the first 2 seasons were, the real fun starts in season 3. It's Cool-de-la!

Larry is a loathesome, offensive brute. Yet I can't look away.

For me, CYE got better with each series. Series 1 was enjoyable, but nothing too special. Series 2 was very good, and I just watched some of it today actully. Series 3 is absolutely magnificent.

Watched first six episodes last night and laughed like hell. Nice to see some "seinfeld-type" humor without already knowing every line, facial expression, and camera edit by heart (not yet, anyway). Richard Lewis is one of Jimmy's favorite comedians, and never knew whatever became of him. Gonna go pick up season 3 this week.

But still refuse to subscribe to HBO!

I've heard different things from different people. Some say it's totally unscripted, but I find that very hard to believe. One thing for sure, though, you can tell it's not TOTALLY scripted, either. They almost make each other laugh a few times.

As Costanza said to the Latvian Orthodox priests, "I know the basic plot."

The actors are told what information important to the story needs to be divulged in each scene, and then it's up to the actors to decide how they do that. But they have the basic story down. Everything else is improvised.I think David tried explaining this on one of the DVD's, i forget which one though, could have been on season 3.

"the doll" from season two, possibly one of the funniest episodes of television, all time.

eagerly awaiting season 4 to arrive on dvd. larry and ben stiller working on mel brooks's "the producers." hilarity ensues.
