watching Seinfeld yet again...love the first 7 series especially, it did fizzle out a bit when Larry David stopped writing them though.
Favourite episode is either The Contest or The Puffy Shirt
Madly hyped for season 9 of Curb...

I've just started watching Seinfeld. Loving it so far and the first couple of seasons are supposed to be the worst?

I started watching this quite recently - I watch a few episodes each time I go round a particular friend's house. I'm enjoying it a lot, but it's not a patch on Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Its a bit like how The Simpsons developed, the first few seasons were good but looking back it gets better season by season, peaking by season seven although I felt season 4 had some classic episodes in it.

I think Curb has more belly laughs as it is made by HBO so there are no restrictions on subject matter and swearing.
I still laugh more at George, now, in Seinfeld as it is clear that Larry David is George
