It's not as good as the first few seasons of Curb (http://www.dvdshop88.com/en/drama/curb-your-enthusiasm-seasons-1-7-dvd-boxset.html), but when it's good it's great, and once again Larry David delivers the goods in that twisted way that only he can. We're gonna miss this guy when he's gone (word is he's got Groat's), so let's enjoy him while he's here. 
PS The extras are well worth seeing for any Seinfeld (http://www.dvdshop88.com/en/comedy/seinfeld-seasons-1-9-dvd-boxset.html) fan. There's about 25 minutes of them, four little bits of which the highlight is the interview with Larry and the SeinFour. Most interesting is the end, with Jason sharing everyone's enthusiasm but then hammering it home with a little too much sincerity about how great the five of them are as a unit and the magic is so special yadda yadda (read: we oughta do this again, and soon) and you can see both Larry and Jerry trying not to wince. They know that a realSeinfeld (http://www.dvdshop88.com/en/comedy/seinfeld-seasons-1-9-dvd-boxset.html) reunion would make mega-millions and they need neither that nor the fakeness of it all, which Alexander evinces here, vaguely unaware he's doing so but seemingly unable to help it. Perhaps he's desperate for that level of stardom again...or perhaps he's channelling the repressed needs of a still sein-obsessed public. 
It's a moment that takes the meta-self-reference of the final Curb show (http://www.dvdshop88.com/en/drama/curb-your-enthusiasm-seasons-1-7-dvd-boxset.html) and adds another layer, albeit a layer all too close to the original thing Larry was mocking in the first place. 
Which only drives home one of the best themes in Curb: show (http://www.dvdshop88.com/en/drama/curb-your-enthusiasm-seasons-1-7-dvd-boxset.html)biz feeds on and creates phoniness and unreality on so many levels that if you don't laugh at the beast it will swallow you whole.
