This is pretty much the correct followed up to Seinfeld. Namely by the real, original George Costanza.

Larry David is my social justice warrior.

Unique, and a real comedy gem.

The entire 7th Season is Curb Your Enthusiasm is apparently supposed to be the **"the Seinfeld Reunion / Reboot"** we've all been waiting for, according to Seinfeld writer Larry Charles (https://411mania.com/movies/seinfeld-revival-larry-charles/). This entire season, culminating in the finale titled "Seinfeld" (S07E10), features all the stars of one of my all-time-favorite shows, Seinfeld: **Jerry, Elaine, Kramer, and George.** This season revolves around a fictional Seinfeld reunion show featuring the original Seinfeld cast. Though I haven't seen Curb Your Enthusiasm, I plan on watching this Seinfeld season at least, and may consider seeing the other seasons as well, considering that its writer and star, Seinfeld creator Larry David, is said to be the "real life George Costanza". Though Elaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) said she'd be game for a real standalone Seinfeld reboot TV show, it doesn't currently seem too likely, unfortunately (http://extratv.com/2018/10/23/julia-louis-dreyfus-talks-cancer-battle-plus-her-take-on-seinfeld-reboot/). So if you're a Seinfeld fan waiting on a reboot, you may want to **watch the "Seinfeld Reunion" Season (S07) of Curb Your Enthusiasm**, while waiting on / hoping that Jerry Seinfeld and the original cast agree to do a full Seinfeld Reboot, along the lines of popular other reboots like "Will & Grace"!

Th Black Swan definitely breaks into my Top 5 Curb episodes of all time...

avatar

Its been 2 years with no word on another season. I hope they decide to make one soon.

avatar

Funniest ever. Don't normally like american comedy but this is amazing. HBO as normal owning all other TV stations in world.

avatar

Seasons 1-7 are great. Lot's of laughs and full of funny material. Seasons 8 and 9 were done for who knows what reasons, but not to make people laugh as they lack in that department.

avatar

Season Two: 7.8. Not as good as the first season, especially in the first few episodes (which really kind of suck). I find Larry’s personality kind of changed abruptly from the first season, but he went right back on track as the season went along. Trudge through the first few and you’ll have a pretty well-done season.

avatar

Season One: 8.7. Great first season with plenty of laughs and hardly any duds. I’m looking forward to more.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
