Review: Curb Your Enthusiasm

Following the success with the Seinfeld series that made him a rich man, Larry David spends most of his days at the office, trying to prepare other series and movies, or at his luxurious home with his wife, an ardent campaigner for the environment built on the model of his actual wife that Larry meanwhile divorced. Their circle of friends is comprised of a number of celebrities, who mostly play as themselves; Jason Alexander, Richard Lewis, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Ben Stiller, David Schwimmer and so his manager, Jeff, together with his somewhat hysterical wife, and so on. Throughout the series, Larry manages to cause an endless series of socially awkward situations that are nevertheless hilarious.

Larry is almost always guided by the very best intentions, but only fails and blunders, and his wife is a constant victim of his awkwardness in social interactions. This is mainly why some episodes look like they are simply an argument from the first minute to the last, but the series does seem to develop nicely as Larry David applies some of his formulas from Seinfeld and you do feel an urge to see the next episode.

One thing leads to another and even the most common situation or interaction escalates to border an unreal scenario. Doctors, airline stewards, as well as old parents and even Asians, are often at the center of Larrys quarrels as they are all his old enemies, in one way or another, and we know this pretty well from Seinfeld.

Verdict:

The series is unique and offers a sharp and highly intelligent humor that we know from Seinfeld. Larry David make fun of the rich American elite, and there are a lot of surprises in the script to you make it a treat once I you get a taste of it. The music is excellent and even funny at times, well blended with action in the series, which is another Larry David kind of thing.
