Maybe not as good as early season, still one of the best shows on TV.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Curb Your Enthusiasm - Complete HBO Season 8 [DVD]  (DVD)
Ok, so I know a lot of people think that this season isn't as good as previous ones, and they have a point I think the show misses something without Cheryl, I agree the New York move was a pointless one, and yes the dynamic between Larry and Leon has become tired.
So if I think that then why I am still giving five stars? That's simple it's still laugh out loud funny, beautifully awkward and incredibly well written. It is still my favourite current sitcom on air, and the pit falls are nothing when stacked up against what made and continues to make this show great. I compare this season to 8 and 9 of Seinfeld (when Larry left the show) yes you can criticise it but only because of how great it was in the first place. It is easily still a 5 star show and it is still outstanding to its long standing fans and new fans alike.
If you're a fan of Larry, Seinfeld, Curb, sitcom, or just great TV this season deserves a place in your DVD collection.

Sadly only managed to see a couple of episodes from 8 ("The Divorce" & "Palastinian Chicken", but going on what I saw, I agree with pretty much everything you've said. The show is just so bitingly funny, even after losing Cheryl and some of the other character dynamics getting a bit tired, there is still so much great material stuff left in there.
My only exception is that I would never rate "Seinfeld" alongside CYE, CYE is just on a level above "Seinfeld".
It's like comparing "Larry Sanders" with "Friends". "Larry Sanders" was the real deal, you sweated blood watching that show but it was worth it. "Friends" was real funny (especially early on when it was still fresh) but in a very ordinary way - you never had to give so much watching that show.
