Curb Your Enthusiasm: Historic Television

With just sixty official episodes over six seasons Curb Your Enthusiasm now owns a spot in television history as one of the greatest comedies of all time. Think about all the sitcoms aired over the last five years. Think about how many were over sixty episodes and how many are just as funny as the canned-laughter would lead you to believe (Two and a Half Men is up to 134 episodes while Arrested Development barely made it to 53. Really?). So for those of you who've yet to see any season, to say you're missing out would be an understatement.

It's unfortunate that it took me this long to get to finishing the entire sixth season, but I can safely say that CYE is better than anything on ABC.

There's still hope for you, however, as season seven of Curb Your Enthusiasm is currently in production which gives you plenty of time to catch up. At an average of thirty minutes per episode, you can knock out all sixty episodes in less than two weeks guaranteed. And for those of you who are already caught up, here's a great season six compilation featuring the lovable Leon Black:
