Pretty Much Pop #172: Curb Larry David’s Shtick

The incredible post-Seinfeld improvised sit-com Curb Your Enthusiasm has had its finale, and so Mark, Lawrence, Sarah and Al reflect on its format, its characters, its way of exploring puzzles of modern manners, its treatment of race and gender, and more. Was it too repetitive? Did it get too contrived?

A couple of the articles we looked at for this episode include “Larry David, Philosopher King” by Mark Ralkowski and “Larry David’s Rule Book for How (Not) to Live in Society” by Wesley Morris.
