He's got it all: a loving wife, good friends, a successful career, a great
home..what could possibly go wrong for Larry David? Seinfeld co-creator Larry
David stars as himself in this hilarious, off-kilter comedy series that presents
an unflinching, self-depreciating depiction of his life
For those who don't know larry david co-creator of seinfeld based the
“george” character on himself. If like me you own all seinfeld dvd's you
will see in a number of interviews with larry david he is so like george
it's not funny.
Larry is similar to “Basil Fawlty” from fawlty towers in that he just
goes about things the wrong way, many cringe moments and out loud laughter.
If you enjoyed “george” and his crazy thinking this is a must watch.
The unfortunate timing of events for this poor “schlep” lead to funny
scenes, and you'd have sympathy for him EXCEPT for the fact that he can't seem
to stop undermining himself as well. Sometimes likeable, sometimes a curmudgeon,
I think this first season was just about making the idea work. Although funny,
a lot of the episodes end abruptly and left me with a sense that they just
couldn't wrap up all the bits nicely, but ran out of time. IF you're a fan of
the show like me, you'd have to have this DVD for a complete collection. If you
want one season out of the six, this wouldn't be the season I recommend to a
At first I thought this show was a bit lame, but after watching it on TV
I discovered it was very very funny.
Larry seems to run into problems everywhere he goes. He gets into verbal
fights with random people, and can never avoid tragedy. He doesn't get along
with most people, which usally causes probelms for him. Basicly he's a total
Jackass, but its funny :)
The characters are great, and the story lines couldn't be better.
