Making an Argument that “Curb Your Enthusiasm” is as Good as “Seinfeld”

There are a lot of ways in which a person can make the argument that Curb Your Enthusiasm is as good as Seinfeld if not better. One of the biggest arguments is that Curb is on HBO whereas Seinfeld never made it that far. What this means is that Curb could move past the boundaries that Seinfeld never did as far as language, content, and overall subject matter that audiences enjoyed. Essentially they’re both shows about absolutely nothing, meaning that there’s no driving plot and no central idea to the whole thing. But somehow people were attracted to both shows partly because of this and partly because of the characters. Both shows seem to approach life in a very neurotic, apathetic way at times that speaks about a life that is spent bemoaning the moment rather than living in it. There are plenty of positive moments within each show that manage to allow the characters to develop and mature. The only problem is that most of the characters never seem to do that as they continue roll along with the script and remain their same, cynical selves. Curb however gets a little bit more of a nod since the show was able to deal with more humanistic problems and situations that Seinfeld couldn’t thanks to its restrictions. READ MORE...

The Top 5 Characters Who Appeared Only Once on Seinfeld

NBC’s Seinfeld described as " A show about nothing" relied heavily on amazing characters rather than plot, to drive the sitcom. And the show drove to some pretty crazy places, mainly due to the Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer’s interaction with the wacky people in their New York universe. Some of these characters like Puddy, Newman, J. Peterman and Tim Whatley made several appearances; however there were some interesting guest stars that did a one off character and thus stole the show during their brief appearance.
