I love the show as well. I own the first season on DVD, and catch it on HBO whenever I can. It's hysterically funny.

Yes! It is my favorite show. I love the episode where Larry refuses to give the teenage girls candy on halloween, so they paint "bald asshole" on his door. Then he tries to convince the cops that it is a hate crime because bald people are a minority group  Smile

One of the funniest shows on TV. Larry David (creator of Seinfeld by the way) is extraordinary as is all the cast.

How about the episode where Larry and Cheryl are going to renew their vows and Larry is reticent about professing his love, Forever. He figured, "Until death do we part" was sufficient enough. That was also the episode pitting the two, "Survivors" as they compared notes trying to outdo each other. One, a Holocaust survivor, the other a, "Survivor", from the show of the same name. The TV survivor recalling bitterly of no "snacks" in the Aussie outback.

How about the one where Larry's mom dies while he's shooting a movie in NY city but no one tells him. "Why didn't you tell me my mother died!!!", he frantically asks his dad on his arrival back in LA. His dad replies, "Well you were busy and we didn't want to bother you". That was the episode when his deceased mom is buried on the other side of the Jewish graveyard because she had a tattoo on her tushy.

I love the show! I get 10 episodes a month on demand here and I watch them to death. I love Jeff's wife. She calls him the best stuff like when he wouldn't take the house tour she called him a fucking freak of nature! Great show!
Hey that guy with the private jet can bail us out! Why? HE CAN AFFORD IT!

Did you see the one where the inner city kid went crazy in their home and took her grandmother's artifact from Russia?

HAHA, that was the FUNNIEST one I ever saw. It was on last night. And then Larry tried to have sex with the Hasidic jew with sheets...Classic.

Did you watch the one when Larry gives a ride to a hooker?

Are they still making new episodes? I never see it on TV, only dvd-just the 3 seasons. How many seasons are there? Are more coming out soon?

Favorite episode: The Doll, where Larry cuts the hair of a little girls doll. She likes it until she realizes it won't grow back. And let's not forget the Nanny From Hell.

I love it!
Wonderful stuff, the first 3 seasons are out here on DVD I have them all.
Found it by accident too, mostly shown on pay BBC channels, a few from series 1 were shown on terrestrial BBC 2 in 2002, I had it on in the background (probably when I was on here) very late one evening, after a late shift.
It was the one where they go to a party hosted by an ex pornstar, I was soon off line and watching!

So far my favourite is 'Beloved Aunt' from series 1.
I liked the 'afflicted' chef in series 3 too and as mentioned, turning down the Trick or Treat teens was another highlight.

When we think of comedy based on embarrassment and discomfort, we think of The Office (and a few other not internationally known UK sitcoms), but Curb Your Enthusiasm is right up there too.

Funny thing is, I was never into Seinfeld, not dislike, just never bothered with it.

What about the obituary that Larry wrote about Cheryl's aunt that appeared in the paper as "beloved @unt" instead of "beloved Aunt?"

Awesome show. It's on every night on HBO-CM at 7:30 Eastern, and it's become my dinnertime ritual.

There are now four full seasons, although I think only 1-3 are out on DVD. Season 5 is in the works right now, not sure if seasons 5 broadcasts in the Fall or in Winter 2006.

Great show, love Suzy Green.
