a very witty and enjoyable first episode
13 September 2017 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

I'm not very familiar with Larry David's work, although I've always known about him and my impression has always been quite good, and so I'm obviously quite new to this series, but that doesn't mean I can't still adore it! With this first episode, David utilizes his clever sense of witty, distinctly Jewish humor to create comical scenarios that are both relatable and ridiculous. David's own performance as himself serves as a consistently humorous commentary on whatever madness is going on around him; he's constantly cracking jokes and ranting and making horrible mistakes and it all escalates before every single situation ties up in a satisfyingly hilarious bow.
