'Curb' Returns!: Be Very Afraid

There aren't too many shows left on TV that are unpredictable and original, especially when it comes to sitcoms, but as usual, HBO delivers on originality (even when the concepts are ill advised, ex: "K Street" ... snooze).

Luckily, "Curb Your Enthusiasm," returning is September is both original and a good idea. Larry David is cluelessly self sabotaging like Dick on "Newhart," but he's got the stinging wit of Dorthy from the "Golden Girls."

Obviously, Larry David, the show's star, is a funny guy. He's co-creator of "Seinfeld." Although, you can see similarities, it's clear that David's sense of humor is darker, drier and more biting than his broadcast network counterpart, Jerry.

He's crazy evil, and I love it. LOL. For those of us who appreciate dry, evil humor, the show's a Heaven sent. It's nice to know there's someone out there who thinks worse thoughts than I do. LOL.

I can't wait to see what the unapologetically sarcastic David gets himself into this season. He can't help but be bluntly honest, but even when he's biting his tongue and trying to abide by the rules of society, he still ends up making a butt out himself.

See it for yourself in September.
