How is this fast exactly. I work off an extremely fast network, and it takes me FOREVER to download this.

Maybe I am doing something wrong.

What speeds are you getting - as in kbps?

The HBO special is 480 MB, and the Episodes #1-5 download in 1 GB total. So even at fast speeds they can take a while to download. Smile

Is there any way to resume a download?? I had episodes 6-10 going but had to reset my computer. Any way to pick up where I left off?

Yes. When choosing the location to download to, just be sure to select the same folder. In this case, the folder named "Curb_e006-10". Then BT will check the existing files in the folder and resume the download from where you left off.

Mine's been going for 2 hours and it's still at 0%. Although, it says "downloaded: 2.8M" so it must be working. Hopefully it will speed up. But I must compliment you because this is the best idea ever.

about the downloading speed, Bit Torrent isnt affected by having other programs open, it just depends how many people BT is connected to. Bit Torrent always starts off slow, but just wait it out and you will get the great speeds you should be getting.

It doesnt matter your connection speed, what matters is if other people are using BT when you are. I mostly get speeds of 10Kb but I got upwards of 200Kb it was out of nowhere, so i guess in that time lots of ppl got on.

Matt, when I first post these, they may be slow - that's because I am the only one with all the pieces. After about 8 hours, this should speed up dramatically. Generally speaking, you should start a download and then come back 12 hours later - usually it will be completed.

The quality of the Season 2 eps is good (TV quality) - but not as good as the season 1 quality...

Just a few words about BitTorrent. If I say anything erroneous, please correct. If I say anything erogenous, what are you some kind of pervert?

The standard BitTorrent client will suck all your bandwidth up. So, if you're downloading anything else, via a browser, ftp client, WinMX, Kazaa, etc. the speed of those other download will slow to a crawl.

I highly recommend downloading "Shadows Experimental BitTorrent Client". Go a-googling and I'm sure you can find it. It allows you to adjust the bandwidth settings and has some useful stats so you can see when it's working ok and when it's not.

And yes, the whole point about torrent and swarming technologies is that the more people sharing at the same time, means better speeds for all. The thing that's often overlooked is this: PLEASE keep your downloads open once you've got the whole file. Again, Shadow's Experimental client displays a ratio statistic which allows you to see when you've uploaded as much as you've downloaded.

As mentioned before, because you can allocate varying amounts of bandwidth to this client, once you've got the whole file to your computer, you can adjust the settings so all your bandwidth isn't eaten up. I like to download at full rate, leave the file uploading at full rate for a day, and then lower the bandwidth down just a little for a few days, so everyone has a constant stream of data.

I've been using Shadow's client for some time now, so I don't know if any of his features have been replicated in other clients. It was certainly the best option available when I started. I like to have a few clients open, with a little bandwidth allocated to each, that way, I can surf at okay speeds and whilst the files take longer, I know that others are getting the opportunity to share.

So this whole premise relies upon our generous spirit! Spread the love baby. (I have no idea what that last sentence even means).

I thankyew.

I use the Shadow client too. I link to the original client because it's a little easier for first BT users. Once you get used to it, the Shadow Client is the way to go (though I have not yet tried some of the other clients available).

I am having a problem using Bit Torrent. I have installed it, and when I click on an episode, a little box like this appears: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'C:\\Documents and Settings\\Owner\\Local Settings\\Temporary Internet Files\\Content.IE5\\O963GLMV\\hbo-comedy-special[1].torrent'. That is all the correct spelling as well, and it does this for every file.
Can someone help me out?

Hello all!

How does everyone watch these episodes? Do you simply watch them through Windows Media Player or do you burn them to VCD to be watched on a regular DVD player.

I made Video Compact Discs from a couple of episodes from Season 2 and watched them on my TV through my DVD player. The picture was pretty lousy.

Any recommendations?

Well you could just watch them on your computer using WinAmp or Media Player,although I did burn VCD`s myself.As regards to Season 2 those episodes are of poor quality compared to the rest.

Has anyone ever tried converting them to Super VCD? I think the quality would look better. I had to convert them to VCD because I couldn't get my hands on an SVCD encoder.

Anyone have on?

Nero has a built in AVI to MPG encoder. I was more interesting in an Super VCD encoder.

I was hoping it would help with the picture quality.

Hey folks, though I appreciate your seemingly undying support for my show, it may prove to backfire in the end.

After all, if all of the show's fans start stealing this intellectual property instead of subscribing and paying for it, the show will not make any money and will thus be yanked off the air.

Any comments?

Wow! Is that really you Larry?
I agree with you totally there, but up here in Canada HBO isn't as acessible as in the states, it costs an arm and a leg for it and the reception is crap unless you get Satellite. For me this is the best solution.. if their was another way i'd love to hear it!

Funny you should ask. There is actually a better way to receive these episodes. You can watch all the most current episodes on "The Movie Network".

I happen to love Canadians, as well as movies and when they appear in tandem - Canadians watching The Movie Network - I get really excited.

Here is the link so you can check it out for yourself

I also agree with you there Larry,but in Ireland we never get to see this amazing comedy as often as USA.
I know it`s wrong to download shows,but it`s the only oppurtunity I`ll ever get as I wouldn`t be able to buy your DVD`s.
Anyhoo,I love your work and can`t wait to see more.All the best,Slan Abhaile Mo Chara.

Oh, and if that really is Larry David, I feel perfectly fine about downloading the show because I already shelled out $25 bucks for the DVD, the packaging of which already broke. I had to destroy the box to get the discs out.

But the show is the funniest ever.

To Larry David (a.k.a. Jenny Rogers, connecting from Eastern Canada),

It's cool to express your opinions here, but impersonating Larry David is not so cool.

It is safe to say that the people who visit this site, and post in this forum, are hard core fans of the show. We own the DVD, and we can't wait to buy the Season 2 DVD (expected in June!) and we look forward to other Curb products becoming available sow e can buy them.

Mr Caddy,

Thanks for your reply, please allow my chance for a retort...

Yes, I agree that most of these chaps on this site are "hardcore fans" of the show, that is wonderful and I am flattered.

However, DVD sales of CYE account for less than 5% of total revenue generated by the show. This measily percentage surely would not be able to financially support the costs associated with making the show.

In other words, by people downloading the show and SOME of them buying the DVD, the show will probably not make it to a 5th season. The revenue generated by subscription is what keeps the show going. It's like saying I won't go and see movies anymore, download them, but Ill still buy the DVD..movies simply would stop being made because of lack of revenue.

Though I believe you are doing this with good intentions, the truth is, you are ruining the very fabric of what capitalism is all about, paying money in return for goods and services. If you bypass the "paying" part, there will simply be no more goods and services to purchase. That is why governments and courts have deemed the practice of stealing intellectual property to be CRIMINAL, thus making it ILLEGAL.

One more thing,

with respect to you accusing me of impersonation, I am impersonating Larry David no more than you are impersonating "Stan the Caddy". The choice you and I have made to withold our real names should be a moot point.

Please do not try and cast my character in a negative light. If I were to ask you which is worse,

1. typing in a ficticious name when posting a message, or

2. illegally providing video to others which is in direct violation of national intellectual property laws, essentially stealing a service and providing it to others who, in effect, also steal that same service.

So please do not try and divert people's attention away from the seriousness of what you (and many others) do.

Sure, a multi-millionaire like Larry David will not suffer, but all of those "average joe's" that work behind the scenes will find it tough to provide for their families when they no longer have a job.

Please act maturely and responsibly.

p.s. how can you be sure tha I am not the person that I type into the "name" box. Would it be unreasonable to think that someone who would be negatively effected by this site would post a message urging people to act morally and intelligently?

Uh, "Larry,"

Save the preachiness, please. As Stan said, the vast majority of users here have likely already bought season one on dvd, and would have already nabbed two and three if HBO didn't employ its usual annoying tactics regarding delaying dvd releases (e.g., still no season two of 6Ft, only recently was season three of Oz released, Sopranos season 3 was long delayed, etc.). People at a forum like this would LOVE to have original product, but we're all strangled by the owners of this "property" you're so concerned with. Hell, most of us already subscribe to HBO in the first place but don't own our own set-top dvd recorders yet to make "legal" copies of our own.

Alternatively, as others have pointed out, some of us simply CAN'T get these eps any other way. I, for example, am on a damn 56k dial-up in Saudi Arabia. No available satellite service offers HBO where I live, videos sent in the mail are intercepted and summarily confiscated, etc. Do you really not think that someone like me wouldn't rather pay for a real dvd instead of being online for two days continuously just to download one stinking episode?

Seriously, direct your energies towards helping like-minded individuals, perhaps the RIAA, MPAA, or the Christian right. Better yet, how about trolling around e-boards in support of US drug companies and their inflated pricing in an attempt to stop decent people who are trying to get medicine at reasonable prices elsewhere.

Hollywood is doing just fine, trust me. If they released "legitimate" product in a more timely and customer friendly way there'd hardly be a need for this great site.

The Stem,

I would place the estimate of people in Saudi Arabia who have no other choice but to download episodes of Curb to you and maybe one other guy. For those of you that are located in a part of the globe that does not offer this programming LEGALLY then there is obviously no other option.

Are you telling me that these people would account for the majority of intellectual property stealers? If so you are an incredibly naive individual. The REALITY is, the overwhelming majority of people who steal intellectual property have the means to acquire it legally but choose to steal it because of the annonimity provided by the Internet, or simply because it is more conveniant to have it now rather than later, and for FREE.

You comments would probably seem to make more sense in a communist message board.

The fact is, most people who steal these episodes CAN get it legally.

With regards to purchasing DVDs, please read my response above a little more clearly. DVD sales alone DO NOT GENERATE REVENUE REQUIRED TO SUPPORT THE PRODUCTION OF CURB.

And to compare stealing Curb - which would be considered a luxury item, not by any means a right - to inflated drug costs, will do little in validating your already weak and uninformed points.

Unless you are well versed in the production and pricing of prescription drugs, you are in no way qualified to comment on their price, as high as it may seem to you, a lay person.

I suppose next you will try and make the point that we should be justified in stealing cars because we are "strangled" by car manufacturers' pricing of their product.

I dont know what kind of world you live in, but it sure seems highly idealistic and unrealistic.

If this site seems to good to be true, then you should probably ponder why that is...

Im sure most THIEVES think that getting something for nothing is also to good to be true.

Point taken on the Saudi Arabia thing, though there are others in less extreme though just as difficult circumstances (I believe there were both Irish and British posters with a similar problem).

No, of course I'm not telling you that people who don't have immediate access to HBO account for the majority of DOWNLOADERS. If I were contending this I would indeed be naive. Perhaps what's more naïve, though, is blindly equating downloading video with stealing.

More to the point, is it really wrong (and, if so, just how wrong in the grand scheme of things)? You're obviously very comfortable with the simplistic black and white distinction between legal and illegal. But most of us operate with an understanding that making such calls must be done with a degree of perspective. For example, have you not ever driven 60 in a 55 zone, smoked a joint, bent the rules on your taxes, etc.? If you've ever done any of these things then you're a CRIMINAL. What you've done is ILLEGAL. How can you sleep at night?

The fact is these sorts of things, like many things, fall into a vast grey area vis-à-vis ethics. Is the person who has never bought a Curb DVD, never subscribed to HBO, etc., doing something wrong by downloading and viewing all four seasons from this site. Sure. Does this impact, in the long run, those individuals whose livelihood depends on Curb being profitable? Of course. (Will your blather stop a single one of them from doing so? Who's being naïve?)

On the other hand, there's the user who subscribes to HBO but doesn't bother to set his VCR. He's paid for the damn show, OK? He's at this site (or on Kazaa, whatever) to conveniently find all of the product in one place. Download it, burn it (or not), and watch it on his own schedule. This person is not a thief in an ethical sense, though he may be one in your callow legal sense.

And yes, he's also saying 'screw you' to the idiots who hold the public hostage by making us wait for the official and "legal" dvd release. Merely saying that all we want is the convenience of having it now rather than later (and thus implying that we shouldn't complain about having to wait sometimes two or three years for official releases) is ignoring the fact that Hollywood has absolutely no concern for its customers. Is it a "right" to download this so-called luxury item? Perhaps not. But if the alternative is waiting two years to have the right to buy the dvd, well, I can sleep at night with having committed the sin of downloading.

Your attempt to make an analogy with stealing cars falls flat. If I rent a car for a weekend or see a commercial for one on TV I can go down to my local dealer and buy one. Immediately. It doesn't work that way with TV. Where are the Seinfeld dvds? How long did the world have to wait for The Beatles catalog to become available on cd? Years. You know what? Screw that. People get pissed and they fight back. So is it "legal" for me to have bought pirated Seinfeld dvds on the net? No. Is it unethical? Hardly. And that's really the point here. I would have bought the full set years ago if it had been available. I suppose I'm supposed to just be happy with watching one or two reruns a day on some local Fox channel, hoping that the lords of Hollywood (who are carefully monitoring their syndication income) one day decide that the public should be allowed to buy the series "legally." Again, screw that.

Do you not think that if Hollywood got its act together (as the music industry very slowly is) that many of the people here wouldn't pay a reasonable price to download this stuff? Have you noticed how iTunes and the new Napster are doing? Yes, many people want something for nothing, but there are many of us who will pay a fair price for intellectual property if those who own it show even a modicum of respect by making it available in a timely manner and at a reasonable cost. There's no reason, for example, that seasons two and three of Curb shouldn't be available for download, at a cost, from HBO. Hell, I'd pay. Don't paint us all with the same brush as thieves.

Though it's off point, yes, I know quite a bit about drug pricing. I worked in marketing for Bristol-Myers (pre-Squibb) for three years in the early '80s. It sickened me to the point that I changed careers. I'm happy to be compared with a communist if the alternative is advocating the blind, money-at-all-costs capitalism as manifested by the pricing policies of drug companies. (By the way, you needn't be an industry insider to know any of this—there's plenty of readily available public information about the abusive methods of these companies. But I digress...)

So, who's living in a world that "sure seems highly idealistic and unrealistic"? People will continue to download and will continue to patronize sites like this, at least until Hollywood, the studios, whoever decide to give us the "right" to own it legally a bit faster and more efficiently. Sorry, but your soap box message about thievery isn't going to influence a single person at a site like this. You're pissing in the wind, friend.

Take care,

The Stem

Hey Guys,
Some great debate goin` on here,but I have to tell you that I simply can`t afford to buy DVD`S,so I get them on the net.Yes I have a computer and broadband,but that`s it stretched to the limit. p.s I`m not trying to offend anyone especially Larry David (if thats who really posted here.)Slan.

Hi Brian,

Your point is easily refuted by Larry. You don't have money for a Mercedes, either, right? That doesn't give you the right to steal one. (Besides, if you have the dough for a computer and a monthly broadband connection can you really not afford dvds?)

What we're talking about, I think, is whether or not a customer's desire for immediate and fair access to a product can be weighed against the strict legality of simply getting it for free. There's no issue that it's illegal (it is). Larry would say you're a thief and that's that. I'd say that you probably shouldn't be downloading it for free but in the grand scheme of things there are other things to worry about (like getting paid downloads of this stuff, at a reasonable cost, available to people in quick fashion).

The difference is that Stan The Caddy was a character on a show, while Larry David is both a real person (and a character), which is deceptive and confusing to people.

And another thing, the real Larry is a lot funnier than you.

Btw, I don't claim to be an expert in the Television business, but I believe that syndication and advertising revenue far outweigh subscription revenue.

Hi The Stem,
Point taken,but as I said,I`m stretched to the limit with Broadband.The computer took me 3 years to build and I`m still going!.
I suppose in a way I`m trying to justify
downloading,when there probably is no justifacation for it.Having said that,who am I stealing of? I surf the net,find a web site with things on it available for download,surely Stan The Caddy is just simply sharing his love of comedy,Curb in particular,with me.Slan

I don't know how all of you feel, but Curb this season is the funniest it has ever been.

5 wood tops my charts.

Keep up the great work Caddy!

I've been downloading torrents for some time now. I point I haven't seen mentioned is that anyone that uses a router needs forward ports for maximum speeds. Each torrent requires it's own virtual port.

Thanks so much StanTheCaddy! Just discovered this season and it's hilarious -- now I'm trying to catch up on the past ones. I downloaded one of the season 4 episodes I missed and it's great! Only took like 4 hours -- much faster than other P2P-type services.

Gosh, I hate to sound ungrateful -- but will the past seasons be available in single-episode formats eventually? I only ask because I haven't seen only a few, and rather than download 5 episodes at a time, it'd be great to be able to pick and choose. (Of course, if this is not possible, this is great too!)

Thanks again for all your work. This fan truly appreciates it.

If I already subscribe to HBO am I actually stealing?

Appreciate your thoughts...

How come the video/audio is out of synch when I try to play any of the season four episodes? I have a pretty fast computer with a good video card and my codecs all seem to be up to date. Whats the deal?

oh the homour...actually, i havent been posting because im in the middle of exams and i have to allocate my procrastination very carefully. this form of procrastination has been relatively low on my priority list, not because i lost the "debate", to the contrary, my points are about as valid and concrete as you can get.

the only comment(s) formed with any seblance of maturity and reason are those of brownstem - the others are intellectually inferior and do not warrant responses.

with regards to the speeding, yes i have sped...however, when i get a ticket i accept responsibility for my actions and do not try and argue the validity of the law. and if i were to hit someone while speeding i would also be forced to accept responsibiliy for my breaking the rules. just as with the example here with regards to "internet sharing", its ok to bend the rules and justify acting illegally/immorally until consequences arise, then you must take responsibility for your actions. all i preach is for people to think about what they are doing and take responsibility for thier actions, then to decide for themselves - nothing more or less.

as a point of clarity, i am not judging people by any means. ive downloaded much content just like many people. i do this knowing that if i am ever "pulled over", ill have to grow up and accept responsibility for my actions...because deep down, i knew they were wrong all along.

back to the books...ciao folks! Wink

I'm also getting the 'URL Refuse Connection' error on some of these episodes(Pilot, 1-5, 35,36, etc.).
Error always pops up on the files hosted at 'http:/'. The episodes hosted on 'http:\' are working fine though.

Anyway to look into getting the professionalnerd server back up or getting the busted torrents on the tracker3 server?

This is an awesome site BTW!

Hi all,

Thanks for making CYE available. I've seen the show until season 3, but the torrent for 21-25 doesn't seem to work. Has anyone been able to download season 3 recently?


ps. CYE is shown on public television in Sweden for free (except licence fee), thus I'm not stealing it, just seeing it in advance Wink Also, I'll probably buy the dvd:s.

I agree with Larry David that downloading copyrighted materials is stealing. I'm surprised that this site hasn't been hit with an injunction. Yes, I bought the season 1 DVD and will BUY season 2.

Hi Brian: I live in Ireland too and when eircom start charging for downloads per mg,as they say they will, on top of the broadband rental fee we'll be hit with huge costs to access what is essentially a shared "free" service. I don't appreciate being told I'm a thief after I've parted with all this dough.

Hi Ruth,
I just read your post (been surfin alot),
as I live in Belfast those fees will not affect me,(unless of course we get a United Ireland sooner rather than later)but you are right to be angry at being called a "thief".
I hope they do not introduce those fees so you can enjoy great comedy that we will not see,well at least not for a couple of years,
anyway good luck to you.Slan

i agree with the above person.. i've been stuck at 99% on the first part of season 2, and 76% on the 2nd for about 3 days now. it's pretty maddening. if someone with decent bandwidth opened the files for 10 minutes, i'd be done!

Would somebody be kind enough to seed Season 1 ep 1-5 for a short while. I only need 2Mb to finish and then i'm sure me and everyone else who's stuck on 99.8% will seed for the next 24 hrs.

Thanks in advance for donating a few minutes of your time to a fellow fan.

Alright, there seem to still be at least two torrents that need to be seeded. These are Episode06-10, which I have been stuck at 99%, and Episode35, which I have been stuck on around 66%. If someone one is able to seed these two, then I'm sure it will benefit many of us and it will have a chain effect. I'm glad to seed any other episodes that people are having trouble with.

Hey Larry David,

I'm from Australia. They don't show Curb here anymore. I've only just heard about the show but i'd love to watch it and would buy the dvds if its good. How am i supposed to check it out when its not on TV here? Downloading these before i buy the dvds is the only way to see if i like it or not. I even searched the net for trailers or clips from the show but there are none, so uve provided no other means to sample this show other than to download an episode or two.

>I havent been posting because im in the middle of exams

Maybe you need to finish high-school before trying to debate adults on misguided pseudo moral issues which you don't seem to understand yet.

You accuse people who download episodes of 'theft' and use the analogy of stealing cars.

Theft (or stealing) means the original owner is deprived of his property. when someone makes a copy of something, the original item isn't removed from being enjoyed by it's owner.

If you steal a car, the original owner no longer has that car to drive. when you download a TV episode, no such event occurs. Someone recorded the episode and made a duplicate. it's akin to taking a show on videotape and lending it to a friend.

There is no 'loss' of revenue because the show are paid for by advertising and cable subscriptions. If there's a pay-per-view even and you invite some friends over, do you consider them thieves because they watched it with you and they didn't pay?

Your analogy basically says that if someone downloads a jpeg of a Picasso painting from the net and prints it out on his color printer, he's stolen the painting from the museum and deprived them of revenue. Ridiculous.

yes, go back to your books and read some move about the concepts of stealing, theft, copying and above all copyright 'fair-use'.

Your attitude of appointing yourself the 'moralistic' net police is akin to that women in season one who prevented Larry from bringing his water bottle at the ABC screening: in other words, what business is it of yours anyway?

Bergevan, it sounds like you just have the torrent file, not the episodes themselves (which are very large files). You need the BitTorrent client, which you can get at
There is a Mac version as well as Windows and Linux versions. Keep in mind, it takes a long time to download episodes, and someone has to be seeding them.

the most likely reason for the error messages and no replies is because the host has shut down service.

the most likely reason he or she shut down service is because HBO sent him/her a nasty gram about infringement, yadda yadda yadda (notice the homage to LD?).

my guess is you won't be able to download CYE from this website anymore.

This really pisses me off as a couple of years ago I tried the same thing with the seinfeld episodes and it did the exact same fucking thing.


If there's something special I need to do, tell me, otherwise fuck off with your false advertising shit! There's no episodes here.
