The consistency of this series is terrific. As it was with Seinfeld. When one considers Fawlty Towers ran to the equivalent of only one series of CYE, it is impossible not to admire the sustained energy and expert comedy writing of Larry David. Seinfeld had a team of writers, but this, according to credits, appears to be basically a one-person job.
LD has, though, ensured that he is surrounded by an extremely talented group of actors. Jeff and Cheryl's supporting straight roles, Susie Essman's foul-mouthed riffs, JB Smoove's (Leon) scene-stealing routines, the various celebrity comedians and comic actors (Lewis, Ted Danson) all provide wonderful foils for LD. He is the top banana, but what a support cast!
I thought the basic premise of dysfunctional grumpy old man would soon pale. The first couple of series seemed so intense it was hard to see how the show could keep it going. Yet the character still remains likable and, of course, funny even after 7 series. He has mellowed a bit, which you can see if you move between the episodes in the first 3 series and the last.
I am amazed by how much mileage there is in some of these routines: how many different arguments has Larry got into over restaurant bills, tips, and disagreements with shop assistants? Yet LD always seems to be able to find some new twist on the themes!Read more ›
Trying to explain a plot line in full would be like trying to list all the components of a NASA Space Shuttle, but what I can tell you is that some situations involve the awkwardness of breaking a lamp at a guests house after being asked to leave, a crazy nanny who has been psychologically traumatized after enduring 15 years working on a Looney Tunes ride that involved the theme tune playing over and over again, as well as Larry tripping up Shaq during a basketball game.
Each episode is just hilarious and so natural. Take my word for it, this is a must buy, and definitely worth a watch, once you get into it you will be totally hooked and realize how clever and how brilliant this show actually is.
The set comes in seven separate DVD cases each containing 2 DVDs (3 for Season One) which are all packaged inside a hard cardboard case. Simple, but great in design.
Overall rating: 10/10
The discontinuity in the few Series One episodes that I watched caused agitation that greatly impaired my enjoyment at seeing this amusing show again. One of main examples is a scene in which David tells his wife to pay on a bet that I recall seeing them make in a scene when the show aired but was cut from the DVD. I additionally was puzzled when David seemed desperate for a room at a particular hotel and remembered from the show airing that every hotel in Los Angeles was entirely booked.
I am aware that some DVD sets consist of edited syndicated versions of shows. There is NO excuse for this regarding a modern show from the DVD era. Further, I do not recall other DVDs of edited episodes cutting important scenes as this show does.
I would love to see a new "Curb" episode in which David makes an issue of this project getting botched so horribly.
The very idea of Larry breaking the taboos of the day makes it all the funnier.

Brilliant, genius Larry David. Stumbled across this and devoured the box set in ridiculous time. I found this highly amusing, cringe worthy and highlighted a lot of things I get... Read morePublished on 11 July 2014 by J. A. Samson
If you are feeling down just put one of these DVDs on and watch it. Very funny and slightly appeals to a weird sense of humour.Published on 21 Mar. 2014 by Maria Browne
