The great thing about Curb is that Larry David won't just make them religiously every year, he takes a break, and after a few years, Larry was ready to come back to CYE and really do a good job. For me, this has been the best series for 3 or 4 now, but sadly without Cheryl, I thought that wouldn't be the case.
There are some fabulous moments here: everything from Larry competing for a woman's heart with Rosie O'Donell, right through to Larry's rather naughty car which makes women feel pleasure. There are some some great guests - as I said before, Rosie's back, and we get a cameo from Michael J Fox, and from The Office star Ricky Gervais.
Obviously, this goes without saying, but Larry's been very controversial again - not only making commentary on Parkinson's Disease; but on the relations between Jews and Arabs. As usual, some of this isn't really for the young, but is funny at the same time. God knows how he gets some of this stuff by the censor.
There's also some great side stories - like with Jeff and Suzie, The Funk Man too, and of course our good old friend Richard Lewis is being his usual happy self, though Larry always manages to put the cat amongst the pigeons as usual.
This is a good DVD, though I ask myself why did they not put 6 on one disk, and 4 on the other? Also the extras were a bit thin on the ground, though "Leon's guide to NYC" was very good - it wasn't really compelling viewing. Though as a fan of Curb, this was an essential for me.
Another great series of curb your enthusiasm. Larry continues to build great narrative on some of life's little frustrations. Particular highlights include Michael J Fox as a noisy neighbour and how Larry and Michael interact in this episode provides some great comedy moments. Whilst it's not quite in the same league as series 7, curb fans won't be disappointed.
Not the best series of Curb' but nonetheless still an excellent series and poops over pretty much anything the UK producers are capable of. As an example of CYE, I'd go for series 1-3, for example, but still brilliant TV
I recently had an argument in a car park with some person who parked selfishly, watch the L.D.episode when the man does the same thing, of course the argument Larry has comes back to haunt him, not 5 star Larry but worth watching, I miss Cherly
