    I’ve really tried but I can’t see the appeal

    I’ve give it the first 2 series but can’t get into it

    Do you like The Office and other comedies that focus on quite awkward / cringe worthy scenarios?

    I love it.
    Just watched first episode of series 10. Loved Jeff as Harvey Weinstein

    It's a joy to behold.

    I love the little bits of improvisation. When Larry dipped his nose into Richard Lewis's coffee and Richard exclaimed "What are you, a fucking goose?" I had to pause the show because I was laughing so much.

    For my money it's one of the best shows ever made, but if you're two series in and it's not got you by this point I don't think it will.

    Richard Lewis comes out with some great lines. I was hoping to see Funkhouser again, but I've just googled him a realised he's dead :(

    I heard about the Funk dying a few months back. Very sad news. I thought episode two would have been perfect for him. I hope they pay him some kind of tribute in this season.

    That's okay. Just because you don't like something doesn't make you wrong it just means I no longer respect your opinion.

    Start on Series 4. That's when the incredibly clever interwoven stories really click into gear. It makes The Wire look like Hollyoaks.

    First episode was unbelievable. Back to classic Curb. Lewis gets some stick but for me he's a great character. Funk man dying was gutting. Can't wait for more this season. Larry is a legend

    I don't look at life in the same way as I did before watching Curb, gives me the confidence to question and challenge any kind of injustice however small. I only wish someone would satisfy me with an LD stare down

    Nobody on the planet is as good as not giving a fuck as Larry David. On and off-screen versions

    Bump.

    Just catching up with the latest episodes. The sex doll, the Nazi dog. Leon spitting on that guys shoes was a highlight.

    Curb has definitely shot back to genius levels after a bit of lukewarm previous season.

    What are you!? A fucking goose!

    I have the final two episodes downloaded on my laptop and I'm desperate to see them but also don't want it to end.

    Last season was fairly unmemorable but this season as been really high quality. The rivalry with mocha Joe is so Larry David

    Latte Larry will wipe the floor with Mocha Joe cos he has "the beans" and his tables are guaranteed not to wobble.

    Love Curb Your Enthusiasm but haven't watched it for a few years. What channel is it on?

    Chaz Bono's big penis! Haha.

    I was sympathetic to Mocha Joe but ended up hating him at the end.
