You get a pretty good feeling watching every season of Curb Your Enthusiasm in preparation for ranking them. Larry David himself would struggle to have an easy time trying to rank a show which, on its day, is just about some of the best American comedy of the last twenty years, possibly ever. Somehow though, we managed it. We found a way to put the (mis)adventures of Larry in some kind of order of quality.
Now we recommend, honestly, watching them all. Curb Your Enthusiasm doesn’t have too much in the way of ongoing narrative, being structured largely as a show where each season tells its own complete story, so in theory you could watch Season Five of Curb before you watched Season One, but regardless of that, start from the beginning.
This is just our perspective on when Curb is at its best. Because even a bad season of Curb is, y’know, pretty good. Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty good!
