After a three year hiatus, Larry David finally reprises his role as a slightly more neurotic version of himself in the 10th season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. And guess what? It’s more than pretty, pretty, pretty good.
The DVD was just released earlier this summer, and David and co. return for another cringe-filled laugh-out-loud 10-episode run picking right up where they left off.
“Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is thrilled to release the latest season of HBO’s iconic comedic series,” said Rosemary Markson, TV marketing senior vice president at Warner Bros.
“In Curb Your Enthusiasm: The Complete Tenth Season, the series continues to follow Larry David’s hilarious uncomfortable antics and proves how seemingly trivial details of day-to-day life can precipitate a chain of misfortune to hilarious effect.”
Nearly the whole gang is back, like affable manager Jeff (Jeff Greene), his wife Susie (Susie Essman), ex-wife Cheryl (Cheryl Hines), Leon (JB Smoove) as well as Richard Lewis and Ted Danson played by themselves. Freddy Funkhouser (Vince Vaughn) makes an introduction, the nephew of long-time friend Marty Funkhouser, portrayed by none other than Bob Einstein of Super Dave Osborne fame, who is sadly absent following the actor’s death last year.
The show, originally debuting in 2000 and since garnering 42 Primetime Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe for Best Television Series, hasn’t missed a beat. Besides the usual day-to-day confrontations David seems to have with nearly anyone he comes across, his latest misadventures also involve being tied up in a sexual harassment case, opening a “spite store,” and mentoring actor Jon Hamm who has been cast as a Larry-type character for a movie.
The DVD, which includes a behind-the-scenes bonus short — short being the operative word here at under a minute long — titled “What Finally Broke Them,” is available now.
