Curb Your Enthusiasm

If I try this,will I know within a couple of episodes if I like it? I am honestly going to struggle to watch 'Always Sunny' so don't want to have to plough through a series to try it out if not my thing.

I've just picked it up from the latest series and its enjoyable but obviously I don't get the full love that the people on here who have followed it for years get.

Yes, you'll know after a few episodes.

It's typical American humour, short, sharp scenario type sketches. Ive tried watching it and some of it is funny and other bits about as funny as piles. I download it occasionally but frankly, take it or leave it.

Been going through it on NowTV

 

Currently on season 3 and there are so many payoffs.

 

Not a single episode goes by where I don’t piss myself laughing.

Cheers, Scott. KDM7 had said there were another two to go which is why I was wondering.

No, just the ten episodes unfortunately. I’ve watched the first six then been dragging my feet watching the last four because I don’t want them to end.

Still chuckling over his line to Mocha Joe, days later. 

 

The car persicope episode and the hunt for the one armed man, also brilliant. 

 

Gutted I've only got season nine to watch now and it's done (seen season ten already)

We go again.

 

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/curb-your-enthusiasm-renewed-11th-season-hbo-1301147

 

HBO and Larry David are taking Curb Your Enthusiasm into a third decade.

 

The premium cable outlet has renewed the show for an 11th season, with an airdate to be determined as most TV production remains in limbo during the COVID-19 crisis. The renewal comes about three months after season 10 finished its run.

 

"Believe me, I’m as upset about this as you are," said creator and star David. "One day I can only hope that HBO will come to their senses and grant me the cancellation I so richly deserve."

 

Added HBO Programming executive vp Amy Gravitt, "This past season tapped into the zeitgeist in such an uncomfortably delightful way. Larry is already busy writing, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store."

Curb's 10 previous seasons stretch back to 2000, and the 11th season will air in the 2020s. It's the longest-running HBO scripted series in terms of both seasons and episodes (the season 10 finale, which premiered March 22, was the show's 100th installment).

Season 10 featured David donning a Make America Great Again hat in public as a way of avoiding interacting with people and opening a "spite store" coffee shop to rival the frequently seen Mocha Joe's. The finale saw Larry's store burn down, with some eerie imagery — like bottles of hand sanitizer acting as accelerants for the fire — in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic.

 

"I guess Larry was prophetic, right?" executive producer Jeff Schaffer told The Hollywood Reporter after the finale. "He was putting Purell on the tables at Latte Larry’s, and he has been practicing social distancing for years. He just didn’t know what to call it, but he’s definitely been trying to do it."

 

David, Schaffer, Jeff Garlin and Gavin Polone will executive produce season 11 of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Laura Streicher is a co-EP, and Jon Hayman is consulting producer.

Sheryl: I'm calling her. This is really unprofessional, if you ask me.

Larry: It's completely unprofessional. And I know, because my whole career has been based on being unprofessional.

Liverpool fans may agree with their captain when you look at the stats. Jurgen Klopp’s side have had more goals disallowed by VAR than any other Premier League team in the 2020-21 season so far. The poll shows just 28% of Liverpool fans believe VAR is being applied consistently, as do 31% of Manchester United fans, compared to 39% of Arsenal and Chelsea fans. And just a quarter of Liverpool fans feel VAR has made football more exciting.  The FA Cup third-round tie between Brighton and Crystal Palace on 8 January 2018 was the first domestic game to use VAR, and it was subsequently used in one Carabao Cup semi-final and the Carabao Cup final between Arsenal and Manchester City. The Premier League introduced the technology for the 2019-20 season. In July of this year, Fifa took full control of VAR from the sport’s lawmakers, the International Football Association Board (Ifab). Since then, there has been an increase in referees using pitch-side monitors for goals, red cards and penalty decisions. VAR continues to rule on factual decisions and advise on matters of subjectivity. Premier League fans still to be convinced Scottish football authorities have discussed introducing VAR, but the technology has not yet been used in professional league football there. VAR was introduced in the German Bundesliga and Italy’s Serie A in 2017 and Spain’s top flight La Liga and the French Ligue 1 in 2018. As with those European leagues, changes have been made in England to try to adapt and improve the system. But the poll showed more than half (51%) of Premier League fans feel VAR is applied inconsistently. However, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said earlier this year that VAR was delivering on the “principal reason” for its introduction in improving the accuracy of decision-making. “In key match incidents we are up to 94% accuracy with officials, 97% with their assistants, so we are seeing an impact on results and a positive impact on the league table,” he said. What they say about VAR Former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville: “[Referees] look like they have been programmed like robots. They are briefed like mad, they are programmed to the nth degree, they are frightened to death.” Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho: “We’re going in a direction that’s really bad for the beautiful game, the game that everybody fell in love with.” Former Tottenham and Newcastle midfielder and Match of the Day pundit Jermaine Jenas: “The players and managers have been unbelievable in mentally getting over these hurdles that VAR has thrown at them. It’s supposed to help the game, and it’s making it far worse.” Savanta ComRes interviewed 5,476 UK adults aged 18+ online between 20 and 24 November 2020, 2,100 of whom qualified as football fans for the purpose of our survey according to Savanta-gathered data on football fans and their demographic profile. Data were weighted to be demographically representative of UK adults 18+ by age, gender, region and social grade. Savanta ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules. The full poll is published here       “I’d rather play without it.” “Ruining the game.” “I don’t know the rules any more.” The video assistant referee (VAR) was brought in to improve football. But Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne have all spoken out about controversial decisions made by VAR recently. And it seems football fans are also less than convinced by VAR in its second full season in use in English football. In a poll for BBC Sport, only a third of football fans across the UK said they believe VAR has made football better. The poll of 2,100 fans, carried out by Savanta ComRes, shows that while 30% of fans think it has improved the game, 44% of fans actually think it hasmade football worse. While most fans are now given the option of seeing VAR decisions on screen – whether in the stadium on watching on TV – almost half of fans said they believe the introduction of VAR has made football less exciting. The poll also shows: 36% of supporters aged 18-34 believe VAR has made football better, compared with 29% of fans aged 55 and over. 59% of fans aged 55 and over said VAR is making football worse. Arsenal fans (44%) are more likely to believe that VAR has made football better, while 37% of Chelsea fans, 34% of Liverpool fans and 32% of Manchester United fans felt it had improved the game. Younger fans are split on whether VAR is being applied consistently (35%) or inconsistently (33%) by referees. Controversial VAR decisions West Ham v Aston Villa, 30 November – Villa manager Dean Smith said VAR “frustrates everyone but there’s nothing we can do about it” after Ollie Watkins’ late strike was ruled out for offside because of the position of his arm  Manchester United v West Brom, 21 November – “I’m very disappointed with the decisions from the referee,” said Baggies manager Slaven Bilic after referee David Coote reversed a penalty decision, ruling Bruno Fernandes had touched the ball in a challenge on Conor Gallagher Crystal Palace v Leeds United, 7 November – Patrick Bamford said VAR is “ruining football” after his equaliser for Leeds is ruled out because his outstretched, pointing arm is offside Everton v Liverpool, 17 October – Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said he “doesn’t understand these decisions” after VAR fails to review a challenge from Jordan Pickford that injured Virgil van Dijk, while Jordan Henderson’s late goal was ruled out for offside against Sadio Mane
    • 'She was less impressed a few days when we went to pick her mate up from the bus stop. Her mate's name is Rihanna, and it was pissing down that day. So you can probably guess the rest. That's right, she gets in the car and I go "Hi Rihanna, it's lashing down out there. Did you not bring an umbrella-ella-ella-eh-eh-eh"   Rihanna laughed a little awkwardly while Adrianna sat there and fumed. I have no regrets.'     And nor should you have, it's what any self-respecting dad would do.
    • Stig will be disappointed when he looks back at that.
    • According to the disciplinary panel's report, Suarez said that the word he used wasn't racist or insulting; the two experts they brought in confirmed it wasn't racist or insulting; Evra accepted it wasn't racist or insulting... so the panel concluded it was racist and insulting.   Boils my piss to this day.
