Product Description

All 10 episodes from the third season of the award-winning US TV series in which Larry David (of 'Seinfeld' fame), has it all - career, happy marriage, friends, beautiful home - but always finds that in spite of his seemingly perfect existence, his day-to-day life can, and generally does, turn into a sequence of misfortunes. Guest stars in this season include Ted Danson, Alanis Morissette, Michael York, Joan Rivers and Martin Scorsese. Episodes are: 'Chet's Shirt', 'The Benadryl Brownie', 'Club Soda and Salt', 'The Nanny From Hell', 'The Terrorist Attack', 'The Special Section', 'The Corpse-Sniffing Dog', 'Krayzee-Eyez Killa', 'Mary, Joseph and Larry' and 'The Grand Opening'.

From Amazon.co.uk

The third season of HBO's comedy sensation offers more of the same. "Not that there's anything wrong with that," to quote Larry David's other television series, a certain little sitcom called Seinfeld. Consequently, Curb Your Enthusiasm's junior year means more Larry (Larry David) and more of his hilariously embarrassing mishaps. It also means more of his patient spouse Cheryl (Cheryl Hines), avuncular manager Jeff (Jeff Garlin), Jeff’s foul-mouthed wife Susie (Susie Essman), and assorted celebrity pals, including Richard Lewis, Ted Danson, Wanda Sykes, Paul Reiser, and Martin Short, all playing themselves (or, like Larry, versions thereof).

The theme that (loosely) ties these 10 episodes together is Larry's involvement in upscale eatery Bobo's, in which Danson and Michael York (yes, that Michael York) are co-investors. As expected, the restaurant will serve to complicate Larry's life in every conceivable way--and vice versa. But the funniest (and most profane) episode must surely be "Krazee-Eyez Killa," starring Chris Williams (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story) as the fidelity-impaired gangster rapper to whom Wanda has become engaged. This riotous installment, which sends up Jewish, Italian, and African American gangsters alike, won an Emmy for Robert B. Weide's direction and features that old master-of-direction himself, Martin Scorsese, who first appeared in "The Special Section" (in which Larry bribes a gravedigger to relocate his mother’s gravesite). It's also the episode in which Larry gets a hair stuck in his throat. That hair, which once belonged to someone rather close to him, will remain lodged there for the next several episodes, until a "divine intervention" in "Mary, Joseph and Larry" dislodges it once and for all--along with the last of Larry's dignity. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars Larry David - comic genius 5 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Larry David, simply has created a comedy series that is even better than Seinfeld. The scenarios created tend to be fairly obvious and one can generally (after watching a couple of episodes) see where the plot direction is going, generally Larry will end up in quite possibly the most cringe inducing scene you can imagine (think the dance scene in The Office and double it). Every tale is great, my favourite, The Corpse Sniffing Dog, a woman with an insane potty mouth, a drunken toddler, a lack of manners, Ted Danson and Michael (so out of place, it hurts) York, you'll be in stitches. American comedy when they get it right is superb. I've just finished watching the 30th episode of CYE and undoubtedly the best comedic series ever, if of course you like slapstick and profanity in equal measure. Wonderful, give Mr.David more of your hard earned cash, (like he needs it).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, very, very funny 17 Jun 2005
Format:DVD
I bought this because I'm a big Seinfeld fan, and it's brilliant.
I agree with a lot of the stuff written in reviews of series 1 and 2, you can sometimes see whats coming, but it's no less funny for that. I felt Larry looked a little pleased with himself as well, but if a lot of it's improvised he's most likely trying to keep a straight face.
The show deals with common day social scenarios, although there is a theme running through the whole series. Larry's attitude and behavioural traits shape his response in these situations, and the plots build up a la Seinfeld into hilarious farcical endings.
I particularly like the blow-up rows and gratuitous insults which are traded in certain episodes as things come to a head, but that's probably just me.
There's plenty more here besides that. Just buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Gets Better And Better... 11 Jan 2005
Format:DVD
Larry David continues to find more and more ways of putting his foot in his mouth in this, the 3rd season of his painfully funny HBO sit-com. Watch, with opened mouth amazement, as Larry spikes some brownies, recommends a deranged nanny, thwarts an Alanis Morissette concert, robs a grave and gets a child drunk. The undoubted highlight, however, is episode 8, in which Larry befriends a gangsta rapper called Krazee-Eyez Killa; it's probably the greatest half-hour of TV comedy that I've ever witnessed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curb Your Enthusiasm 20 Sep 2005
Format:DVD
As a devout Seinfeld fan, I must admit, CYE is on a different level. It is simply a masterpiece of comedy which has instantly acquired a cult status in my household. Episodes like The Doll are just incredibly hillarious. The plots in each episode are so good, you could turn them is short stories. I cannot wait to see the Series 4! If someone runs a poll to nominate the best sitcom of all times, I will vote for CYE without any doubt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still deliciously cringe worthy 31 Mar 2009
Format:DVD
The master of passive-aggressive behaviour returns for a third series of comic mishaps played straight. After the runaway success of the first two seasons, Curb your Enthusiasm really hits its stride here; Larry David becomes an investor in an up-market LA eaterie, and naturally he soon alienates the chef, his fellow investors and one-by-one his entire social circle. David acts as though normal rules do not apply to him, as he breaks the house rules at a garden party resulting in his becoming responsible for a pyschopathic nanny; fires his TV repair guy and is consequently accused of racism; betrays his wife's friend's trust, and buys a wedding present 14 months after the event, leading to the destruction of yet another friendship.
As usual, Larry's misplaced trust in his oafish manager Jeff is the root cause of many of his troubles, whilst his hard-headed determination to insist that others see the world his way invariably leads to conflict and social trauma.
It is sometimes possible to sympathise with Larry, However, many of the problems he comes up against are entirely self-inflicted and it is this combination of pathos and embarrassment that makes the show so addictive. In the most cringe worthy episode, Larry is away from home and hears of his mother's death; he subsequently uses his bereavement as a device to get out of unwelcome social engagements; typically self-centred behaviour from David. Another high point is when Larry becomes convinced that a terrorist attack is imminent, and immediately decides that he can leave his wife Cheryl behind while he escapes the city; in the same episode he is the cause of Alanis Morisette damaging her neck and his all too brutal honesty with some friends leads to further social suicide.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Worlds Most Thoughtless Man? 23 Feb 2008
By R. Mullaney VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Season 3 of HBO's genius sitcom, Curb Your Enthusiasm, sees Larry invest in a restaurant with his idiot manager Jeff and Ted Danson amongst other businessmen. What should be a fairly safe investment begins to fall apart the minute Larry comes on board and after disagreements about the waiters uniforms, a dead man's shirt, the potential chef and an inappropriate comment about a co-investors son's genitals, Larry soon alienates everyone involved. Add to that a possible terrorist attack, a mentally unstable nanny and a dilemma whether or not to thank the wife of a man who has just paid for your meal (he doesn't) and you have another hilarious series.

Season 3 is more classic comedy gold, with Larry stumbling from one cringeworthy situation to another. As ever, Larry is flummoxed by race relations and various other social situations and manages to offend everyone he meets to the dismay of his long suffering wife Cheryl.
