Review

By Larry David,the cocreator of Seinfeld and starring the good man himself, this reminds one much of the Larry Sanders show. Celebs, a blurring of reality and fiction, stylistically too, and cynicism. I think it is probably rather easier to just write a show starring yourself and about yourself and get it shot like a documentary, overlaying some ridiculous fairground music in a cool kindaway. By not attempting to distill or heighten the humour to the brilliant levels of Seinfeld,, you still end up with an ok wry and watchable show about an obnoxious tv comedy writer. Rather in the vein of Alan Partridge or the office, more documentary than human poetry. This is why Seinfeld was great art and Curb your enthusiasm and the rest are just the butt end of avant garde theatre.
