Curb Your Enthusiasm returns with new episodes this Sunday, and Tim Goodman has his usual
smart take on the show:
Season 4 of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" continues, in the span of its first four brilliant episodes sent for review, an audacious assault on what is OK to laugh at in this country. Larry David, who brought the world "Seinfeld" and has since honed his skills at elevating myriad pet peeves to comic genius, is unparalleled in this country at making daring comedy squeamishly funny.
Only the British import "The Office" can compare. Awkward, uncomfortable, embarrassing -- this is the area David mines for riotous humor.
