I love this show.. But.

it's not as perfect and funny as Seinfeld. There are more boring bits and overplayed jokes.

the anti-political correctness for the sake of it jokes are wearing thin. And why is don't they have people wearing brown make-up playing the minorities? It's not funny just to see a muslim/other minority being bad/silly/weird and nothing else. e.g sikh in final episode.

I like the Producers theme, and the plot mirroring life mirroring show within show business (same thing happens in Seinfeld). But after a while it got self-indulgent (obviously a virtue in Curb too) and too much like product placement on behalf of Mel Brooks. The final episode was disappointingly tedious.
