Synopsis


Seinfeld cocreator Larry David (playing a fictionalized version of himself) is as socially inept as ever in the fifth season of the heavily improvised comedy, landing himself in more awkward situations in 10 episodes than most people do in a lifetime. Early on, Larry learns longtime pal Richard Lewis (as himself) needs a kidney, prompting Larry and Jeff Greene (Jeff Garlin) to ponder how far they'll go to help a friend in need. It's something Larry struggles with all season after getting the dreaded news that he is indeed a kidney match, and he goes to ridiculous lengths, like befriending the head of an organ-transplant organization, to ensure he won't end up on the operating table. In another story arc, a mumbled comment from his father (Shelley Berman) makes Larry wonder whether he was adopted, and he enlists private detective Omar Jones (Mekhi Phifer) to uncover the truth. Some of Larry's most memorable Season 5 gaffes include bringing a registered sex offender (Rob Corddry) to Seder; adopting a dog that Wanda Sykes (as herself) pegs as racist; buying a bra for his housekeeper (and upsetting her husband in the process); getting into a heated feud with an elderly bingo player at his father's nursing home; and accusing his Korean bookie of kidnapping Jeff's dog. Ted Danson, Rosie O'Donnell, Hugh Hefner, Kevin Nealon, Gary Player, Dustin Hoffman, Bea Arthur, and Sacha Baron Cohen all make cameos. ~ Karen Andzejewicz

    Funny stuff

    This is the fifth installment to Larry David's hit HBO comedy series. If you liked Seinfeld, you'll love this show because it takes that same situational comedy to the extreme. Although I would have to say that this is the least funniest of seasons of the show so far, it is still a must have. Even the least funny episode will have you laughing until your stomach hurts. As far as the product's format goes, I love the way that the DVD is packaged. It has two sliding tabs that you pull on and the discs will magically be revealed. The menus on the DVD are also very user friendly.

    This season takes on the big issues: life, death, religion and self sacrifice. This is a tightrope to walk but Larry stays balanced through comedy. Highlights include Kamikaze Bingo, Ski Lift, Smoking Jacket, his racist dog and the final episode. Cameos by Rosie O'Donnell, Dustin Hoffman, Sascha Baron Cohen (Borat), and Bea Arthur, as Larry's deceased mother. 2 dvds full screen plus many many bonus features

    Decent Season

    This was a good season of CYE. However, it lacked some of the edge of the previous seasons. Still, compared to other shows on the air, it is hilarious. The format of the show is unique and the acting is spot on.

    Seeing Larry David playing himself, just brings George Costanza to mind every time.
