From Amazon.co.uk

Curb Your Enthusiasm is the brainchild of star-creator Larry David, who cocreated Seinfeld and was the basis for the easily rattled George Costanza. Like George, David has a tendency to speak too much, blow things out of proportion, and, most often, fail in the end (and often liking it that way). David's new show is also like its predecessor; it's about "nothing" except following the day-to-day ramblings of a sometime writer and comic (this time in LA). Eternal questions stemming from universal daily dilemmas are honed to perfect comedic absurdity. A notable exception is that the show is only scripted by plot; much of the action is improvised. The first season starts with a one-hour mockumentary following David's return to stand-up for the first time in years. The other 10 episodes follow a more traditional sit-com setup.

David plays "himself" (as does his friend, Richard Lewis) although his manager and wife are played by comedians Jeff Garlin and Cheryl Hines. Although this first season is a comedic gem, one can't take more than an episode or two at a time--it's caustic, biting comedy. The episodes are often built like a house of cards, which the irritable David will surely collapse by the end. --Doug Thomas

Forget The Office !
If that superb series can win two Golden Globes, then this wonderful American comedy series featuring the unique talents of writer and star Larry David who helped create Seinfeld is worthy of even greater awards.
The DVD features the first series of ten episodes plus an hour long feature that introduced the idea and paves the way for the brilliant comedy that followed. Together with an interview with Larry David it is a marvellous buy and I recommend it highly.
Larry David stumbles from one disastrous and embarrassing encounter to another, and what is unique about the series, is that most of the dialogue is improvised and therefore it really is like peeping in at somebody`s life with mouth wide open at what is taking place. Language and content are often quite near the mark, and if we in the UK ever consider that British television is brave, then sample what HBO has the courage to show.
These ten episodes are all of the highest calibre, but I particularly recommend `Beloved Aunt` which contains an obituary with the most unfortunate typing error you will ever encounter !
This show is now being shown on BBC, and it is fairly new to me. Don`t wait to bump into it that way...buy this first series and I guarantee you will be hooked. The added bonus as if any were required, is the lack of a cackling audience. This adds to the authenticity of the situations and the brilliance of all the actors together with the superb David make the whole production unforgettable.

This two-disc set contains the first ten episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm along with the pilot episode and an interview with Larry David.This series concerns the life of Larry David,an obscenely rich writer who was the co-creator of Seinfeld,in which he somehow manages to get himself in ever more farcical situations of his own making which normally involve him getting in trouble for innocuous comments or simple misunderstandings.The highlights of the first season include the worst typo imaginable (in a newspaper obituary for his wife's aunt),the stupendously distasteful episode where Larry ends up going to an incest survivors meeting (where he has to make up his own story) and his numerous scrapes with his manager Jeff's parents.This series at it's best rivals all the greatest comedy of all time-the format of this programme makes it seem like a superior I'm Alan Partridge/The Office-style sitcom.File Larry David next to Peter Cook,Chris Morris,Spike Milligan...

If you caught CYE on BBC2 or 3 you'll already be a huge fan, if you didn't then without doubt you need to buy this DVD.
The 'character' Larry David, played by the co-creator and writer of Seinfield, Larry David, is a great comic creation. He is irritable, bad tempered, painfully honest and impatient to the nth degree and in every episode is the grand architect of his own downfall...but played with such skill by the real Larry David that you can't help but root for him.
He insults and offends people where ever he goes - random people in the street...shop workers...waiters...basically anyone he bumps into - not because he sets out to do so but because he can't seem to stop himself. He always starts out with the best of intentions but the situations that follow descend into anarchy...always hilarious. His desperate chase to get to the front of the queue at the doctor's, wrestling some poor woman to the ground in the process is the funniest thing I've seen in years.
CYE is total, improvised brilliance, with an excellent cast, fab cameos, totally bizarre and politically incorrect scenarios (Incest Survivors group anyone?) and the best few hours you could possibly spend in front of the TV screen.
I dare anyone not to love this show...the US are already on series four so there is plenty to look forward to. It's simply the best thing on TV right now.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Layton Lewis on 7 Mar. 2005
Format: DVD
Missed this series when it came out on TV, but managed to catch up thanks to a friends' recommendation. Larry David (LD) brings a level of (cynical) realism to life in LA. Obviously affluent (mainly due to the successes of Seinfeld), he maintains a down to earth attitude. The story lines are fairly simple, but some of the situations (mainly self manufactured) he finds himself in test's both his and his (very understanding) wifes resolve.
Parts where he gets mistaken for a tramp in an upmarket jewellery store, and ends up fighting in the foyer with his best friend, and getting caught watching his managers porn collection by his managers parents in his managers house are classics!

Like a lot of people, I'd heard a lot about CYE but as I don't have a digital box I never got a chance to see any of the clips from the series. As the series are currently on a great discount and like most people I saw the "Ricky Gervais Meets Larry David" show on C4, I decided to invest in the first series.
I was a bit disappointed initially - the first episode is just not very funny. But stick with it. The Ted and Mary and Porno Gill episodes are hilarious. The premise of most episodes is that LD upsets his many friends and acquaintances in Los Angeles. Seems wafer thin in plot but it isn't really til Series 2 that there is much of a continuity.
Also the tendency when buying TV series box sets is to watch all the episodes in one go. Watching maybe two or three then another one when you get time a few days later is much more rewarding. It's hard to describe the humour but there are lots of watching between your fingers moments. As for the characters, Larry's wife is likeable and deceptively breezy (not much evades her attention). Larry's agent isn't very funny at all and his constant presence is annoying. But watch for the episode where Larry buys his wife a ring to apologise for ignoring her. He has a big bust up with his pal, the recovering alcoholic, a sadly underused character with rapier like wit.
A lot of people might not like the style of the show (very subtle, glides along at times) and isn't big on slapstick, but this is a great show and well worth buying the series DVD's. Stick past the mediocre first episode - when you become accustomed to Larry and the cast you'll be shelling out for the other series.
