Customer Review

on February 5, 2014
It's a dichotomy for me that while I really like Larry and the scrapes he forever gets himself into, the writing for the supporting cast has always been jarring. Literally, no one apart from Larry is remotely likeable, with the possible exception of Cheryl. So while LD's on-screen persona is a classic comedy creation, and many Larry-isms have rightly entered the comedic vernacular, the writing for third parties smacks of laziness. It's these two dimensional characters that I have always had a problem with, and to me that's Curb Your Enthusiasm's main weakness. Everyone in Larry's world has a hair trigger temper, is petty, or selfish, or downright ignorant. Often the people he encounters are all of the above, and his friends are usually no better. Who could live in a world like that?

For Larry's unstoppable sense of optimism, his confrontational exasperation, and for the Larry-isms, though, "Curb" is a series I will always return to. "Chat and cut"? Genius.
