5.0 out of 5 stars A return to form, 21 Aug 2009
This review is from: Curb Your Enthusiasm: Complete HBO Season 6 [DVD] (DVD)
I thought Series 4 and 5 of "Curb" were merely very good, as compared with the first 3 series which were consistently side-splitting. I didn't imagine Larry David would carry on much longer with "Curb", as he has shown he knows when to quit (viz. Seinfeld). However, Series 6 is a surprise return to form. I can't say why it's better than 4 and 5: maybe it's that the "meta-plots" are richer (the Davids taking in a family of hurricane evacuees, the Blacks; Cheryl leaving Larry); maybe it's the contributions of new support actors, in particular J B Smoove as Leon Black; but on the whole, the energy levels have been cranked right back up to 10. As ever, underneath the outrageous shows of misanthropy, there is a paradoxical warmth to Larry David's humour. I hope he can keep up this level of quality, because I will miss "Curb" when it's gone.
