Curb Your Enthusiasm

After watching Seinfeld, a turned to Curb Your Enthusiasm, a show that I watched more recently (last four years?). Like Seinfeld it totally holds up.

Larry David's persona and the shenanigans driven by his neurosis and self-absorption are both hysterical and fascinating. The supporting cast is perfect, the way they complement or foil or encourage him.

The only thing, as brilliant as Curb is, it's not a great "binge" show. There is a lot of yelling and the cadence of the show, if you're watching one after another after another, can be abrasive and grating. But one or two on their own is very entertaining. Smart, slightly mean-spirited, awkward comedy.
