Curb Your Enthusiasm Features Gang from Seinfeld


I am a recent subscriber to HBO and a recent fan of “Curb Your Enthusiasm”. After watching just one episode, I was hooked. Larry David is the central character. Larry David is famous for having introduced the “Seinfeld” television show. Larry is actually Jerry Seinfeld and George Costanza in one person. The same phobias, insecurities, and inappropriate comments from the Seinfeld program continue through Larry’s character in Curb Your Enthusiasm.

The program is filmed like a documentary or a reality TV show. Through behind-the-scenes programs, I have learned that most of the show is unscripted. There is an idea and a couple of lines that need to be inserted into the conversation. Everything else is ad-lib.

Apparently, the premise is that Larry wants to get the Seinfeld gang back together. Because this is filmed like a reality show, Larry talks to Jerry, and Jason Alexander, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Michael Richards about doing a Seinfeld episode that explains what has happened to the characters in the 11 years since the show went off the air. As viewers of “Curb”, we will see the  stuff–writing of the script, read-throughs, rehearsals, and portions of a reunion show–but there will not really be a reunion show.

This is going to be a very amusing non-reunion “reunion” show that is going to last for 6-7 episodes of this season’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” show. I’ll be watching from my couch at the Munro House Bed and Breakfast in Jonesville, Michigan.  Join me if you don’t have cable. I can’t wait.
