To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought ALL other series and there are still very funny bits in this, but agree with other reviews, some are predictable and over-acted. Time to retire. Having said that I have watched Seinfeld and Curb over and over again, STILL my favourite. when you think of sad "Harry and Paul" on TV, can you compare Larry David to a mere mortal? You know it must be a good show when British broadcasters to BURY it deep in knowhereland.
Firstly , Curb is one of my all time favourite comedies, early season episodes were consistently genius. my favourite episode is probably "the car pool lane" from season 4 but from the early 4 or 5 seasons there were so many great episodes this season has about 3 out of the 10.
Sadly since cheryl has left the hilarious cringeworthy comedy situations Larry frequently got into, which made the show, are lacking greatly and a lot of the situations in this season feel very contrived. Because of this, this season just isnt as good. And if that wasnt a disappointment enough Ricky Gervais shows up in one episode playing himself, which makes you want to switch over instantly. How Larry could be desperate enough to let him waste screen time I'll never know, this particular episode was the low point of the season and should've been cut out. Gervais should get back to his (inferior) office or other lame shows where he belongs.
The best couple of episodes were where Larry upsets Michael J Fox , and Larry buys a gift for his girlfriends son - these were the only ones where it came close to the Curb of old, Sadly though I think we've seen the best of Curb long ago and this great tv series may have jumped the Shark.
