5.0 out of 5 stars I CAN'T, 4 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Curb Your Enthusiasm : Complete HBO Seasons 1 To 5 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
I simply can't curb my enthusiasm for this box set. Has there ever been a funnier, more irreverent more outrageous sitcom than this ? Larry David the creator of that other masterpiece Seinfeld stars as himself going about his business as a comedy writer in Hollywood. He struggles with a world with which he is just slightly out of step. He finds himself in the strangest situations usually through no fault of his own, but instead of backing off he pursues his own interpretation of justice mostly to his detriment.
There are several way out guest stars again playing themselves e.g. the cast of said Seinfeld and Ted Danson. In addition there is his long suffering, beautiful wife, his overweight agent and his agent's dirty mouthed wife who comes out with the most imaginative use of the F word.
The humour while Jewish in flavour is far from exclusively so. It tackles matters of religion, race, sex, politics, fidelity, indeed most talking points of the present time and does so with a rapier wit. The dialogue, often unscripted, is brilliantly crisp and at times very colourful; not for young kids or maiden aunts.
This is the thinking person's all time best sitcom.
