Ari has been killer this season.

Ugh, I find that show unbearably boring. Oh well, at least it's better than Lucky Louie...

The only comedy-oriented HBO program that ever grabbed me was Curb Your Enthusiasm - and even that one paled in comparison to Seinfeld.

I guess I prefer the more "conventional" mainstream sitcoms. Seinfeld and Frasier were my faves. I don't watch present-day sitcoms anymore; they all try to emulate the model set forth by Friends, which has to be the most overrated sitcom of all time.

The only thing I really, really like about HBO is their boxing coverage.

You're just trying to be hip by saying that Curb is better than Seinfeld. Seinfeld is one of the most decorated TV shows of all-time, with some truly memorable characters and events, whereas Curb is just a quirky glimpse in the life of Larry David, along with an entourage of "meh" people. Give me a fucking break.

I'm really not trying to be hip, or anything of the like.

The good seinfeld episodes and moments were diamonds in a sea of feces. I think that part of the reason Seinfeld never struck the right cord with me is because it's got a few different styles of humor throughout. The only one that ever appealed to me was (apparently) the stuff Larry David wrote, so when the dude wrote a show about himself... it all clicked.

i wish they concentrated less on ari. what made him stand out the first season was the total of 5 minutes air-time he had. i think we're getting ari'd out. we need more drama and more E, less vince and more of turtle as a sidekick, nothing focusing on him.


both curb and seinfeld blew, but if one hit harder, its definitely curb. seinfeld was the Friends for the older crowd. Cookie-cutter and simply overloaded with monotony.

I will maintain that Arrested Development, as short-lived as it was, was the greatest sitcom of all-time.

I'm not one to judge the quality of a show by the ratings, but you can't look at the popularity of Seinfeld's last few years and say Curb "hit harder" with the American public. Friends is not anywhere near the Seinfeld level, but significantly funnier than Arrested Development. Not that AD is bad by any means, but it didn't do much for me.

I can totally understand how you would think Seinfeld was overrated, but if you think it was anything less than quality, you are sadly mistaken.

Edit: Oh shit, I just admitted to liking Friends.

Are you aware of how bad you just clowned yourself? I couldn't have scripted this better myself! But let me ask you a question;

Where did I say anything about you that pertains to Seinfeld? That very same reading comprehension you attempted to make fun of me for would have told you that what I in fact was doing, was actually giving I Rise Against shit for blasting Curb and Seinfeld.

Also, your cute little 'hot headed new yorker' assumption might be a little more valid if I lived in the city, which, is absolutely not the case. Unless, you were talking about those "hot headed Syracuse kids!" If only I had a nickel for every time I heard that!

Nice try, new jack.

I'm just speaking the truth. I have found that you either love Seinfeld or you hate it, and I hate it. I have never found their jokes hysterical or funny or remotely clever. At least Curb made me laugh a little.

And you really can't expect an HBO show to have higher ratings than a network show, based on access alone. By hitting harder, I meant the jokes were more outrageous and remotely funny.

Shows like AD, in my opinion, were flat-out hysterical. If you can find yourself remember jokes from an episode hours after it happens, its definitely a keeper. The only reason the show didn't survive was because network audiences aren't smart enough to understand jokes that might use a brain cell or two.

But after all, its all opinions nowadays.

And "wigger dialogue"? Have you seen Turtle or any of the scenes he's ever been in. And I wouldn't call it wigger dialogue more along the lines of slang, which both white and black people use.

it's more dramatic to have the best at the end, so here come the "less thans"

note: i love all these shows to death...

entourage < lucky louie (although, i wait anxiously all week for entourage)
seinfeld < curb
arrested development < larry sanders show

best part about curb is that is really how larry david's life is. my friend jayna works for mtv and now shares a break room with hbo, and had a strange, yet typical and hilarious "curb" conversation with larry about how she was getting something from his cabinet.

it also should be noted that anything with jeremy piven, larry david, garry shandling, louie c.k., jim norton, or jeffrey tambor is sure to be golden.

also, star sighting for you celebrity whores (and you all are, admit it), kevin connolly was having a 4th meal with nikki hilton at norm's diner in LA the other night. i wonder if he took her somewhere else for a 5th meal...

You must be on crack. If they dropped all the profanity, replaced the cast with actors who don't look like hoodlums, and transferred the show to NBC, you would hate it.

Seriously, this HBO-is-God fixation is ridiculous. Lucky Louie has to be the dumbest, least-funny show to make it on air since that Christina Applegate sitcom a few years back.

I never bought the hype on the HBO shows either, but when you actually watch them, you realize its quality.

Anyone watch the new episode last night? It was nice that they buried Medellin in a shallow grave. I was fearing that we'd have another season of "will they re-edit it and find distribution???" It was a little silly how quickly they went from Vince beach being over Hollywood and growing a sweet beard on the beaches of Mexico to him being clean-shaven, riding in the back of the hummer, and talking about the next project. Ah well, it's all back to normal, which is not necessarily a bad thing. I just hope they can throw in something fresh. Apparently Michael Phelps has a several-episode arc this season.

i thought the new episode was pretty decent. i thought they might go in the direction of having drama be closer to the A-list than vince for a while, which I guess could still happen - it's what i'm hoping for anyway... every season seems to start with vince in some sort of peril, which is then resolved within like half and episode.

Not trying to knock, but it seems like this show is damned if they do, damned if they don't. If they resolve something in a half hour, people say its rushed and cheap. If they spend a lot of time on something(such as Medellin) people bitch that they drag stuff out.

My thoughts:

- This episode set up a great arc for season 5. Vince's comeback! We have never seen him really have to fight too hard, so I think this will be a cool change up. Not that I really needed a change in Entourage formula.

- The Murphy Group can bring in some cool stuff too, although I think it is going to take away E from the group somewhat. But, he seems to be becoming more part of the hollywood "scene" or whatever which is also an interesting character development.

- Ari being angry Ari is always awesome.

-Drama smashing the window with the golf club just like in season 2 I thought was hilarious. Good callback even if it wasn't intended. Also heard he has a meltdown on the View or something this season.

- Only part I didn't get was what happened to Clouds? I know Walsh rewrote it and made it shit or whatever but where did we leave off with that last season?

I bought the first season of Curb when it came out simply because of the ties to Seinfeld. Watched it and immediately traded it to a friend for a Family Guy set. Re-watched it a few years later and became obsessed.

Pretty good second episode. Ari being real was a change and he still had some funny punch lines. Vince actually giving a shit and showing some passion was a real nice to see finally. E doubting himself could turn into something.

And Drama cussing out the voicemail or whatever was funny as shit.

I really think this season has the chance to be one of the better seasons, E and Vince are being set up for what could be some great storylines.

Californication is really really strong right now. I'm loving the relationship between Hank and Lou Ashby. And the fact that they've made Becca into a black metal fan is hilarious to me.
