My Thoughts:

Tom's TV Pilots marathon, a review by Tom


     Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season One (2000/United States)
IMDb | Wikipedia

HBO Video (United States)
Length:347 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround, French: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround, Commentary: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround
Subtitles:English, French, Spanish


Plot:
Larry David, co-creator and executive producer of the long-running hit comedy series "Seinfeld," tackles a new subject - himself. He's got it all: a loving wife, good friends, a successful career, a great home...what could go wrong for Larry David?

Surrounded by an eclectic mix of real and fictional re-creations of his friends, acquaintances and outright enemies, prone to speaking the unspeakable, and honest to the point of insensitivity, Larry David is a walking victim of misunderstandings and missed opportunities.

This HBO special was the inspiration for the series. So I decided to watch it for this pilot marathon. Many elements for the series are already in place. Although this is build up more like a documentary. The characters are aware of the cameras and also give interviews.
