Re: Seinfeld vs. Curb Your Enthusiasm

Curb is more raw but I imagine that if Seinfeld was on HBO or something it would be just as raw.

I'm going to say a tie.

Re: Seinfeld vs. Curb Your Enthusiasm

I've always said that Seinfeld gave you 4 very unique characters, with 4 different points of view, that gave you 4 different reactions and interpretations of everything around them

Curb just gives you the one point of view and the one character to be the center. As someone else said Curb is like if Seinfeld was focused entirely on George Costanza and the rest of the other characters revolved around him. Still ridiculously funny, but not nearly as diverse as Seinfeld

I don't necessarily care about swearing to make a comedy better. Seinfeld proved that you can be just as suggestive, but give a wink to the camera, without coming out and directly saying what they're "really" talking about.

I can get bored with Curb after 4 episodes in a row. Seinfeld I can plow through 8 to 10 and still be laughing my fucking ass off at every one of them

The answer is the show about nothing
Really? Elaine was actually my least favourite of the main Seinfeld characters. Sure she had her moments, but my favourites were George and Kramer, with Jerry in a close third. Also, Jerry was Jerry, George was based on Larry David and Kramer was based on Larry David's neighbour. Elaine was basically fictional and a demand from NBC to get a main female character in order to not make the show too male-centric. She doesn't even appear in the pilot episode, remember.

Oh THAT. Well, sure, but tbh Julia dressed quite poorly in the early Seinfeld seasons and her hairstyle didn't suit her very well. I actually prefer the way she's looked on the show she starred after Seinfeld, Adventures of Christine or whatever.

But yes, she's a pretty woman.

As someone who enjoys writing as a hobby, both Seinfeld and CYE are big inspirations for me. Especially when it comes to situations where two people are stuck in a waiting room and need something to talk/argue about or something haha . It's no wonder Seinfeld aged so well and CYE probably will as well. A lot of their humour is timeless.

Re: Seinfeld vs. Curb Your Enthusiasm

I love both but they are totally different shows. I really couldn't pick one or the other.

Curb creates those tense cringy moments with LD that are like a car crash you can't look away from
The Sein has great characters that play off of each other and perfectly written story lines

Re: Seinfeld vs. Curb Your Enthusiasm

I just couldn't stand Larry after season 5 or 6 or somewhere around there, and not in the good way. Sure it was a hilarious show but it just became too much of him after a while being just an awful human being.

Seinfeld is head and shoulders above. Kramer is one of my all time favourite characters, and all the 4 just work so well together. Add to that the great regular peripheral characters, as well as people like The High Talker, The Close Talker, Bubble Boy, Soup Nazi etc etc.

There's just so much more to Seinfeld.

Yes, Curb can be a bit cringey at times and makes you feel some sort of second-hand embarrassment when watching Larry David throwing his tantrums, but I think that's the point. You're supposed to think he's a weird autistic billionaire who doesn't understand certain social conventions and rules and is out of touch with the world.

It's scary, but the older I get the more I relate to Larry David and George Costanza... differences aside, that is
