Hum Ding

Today I got season three of The Sopranos and season six of Curb Your Enthusiasm (which I rank fourth for TV comedies, behind Arrested Development, The Simpsons, and Seinfeld).

I am pleased. This is how I stay relatively out of touch with contemporary culture: keep the smallest cable package available, listen only to NPR, read Dostoevsky's novels, and watch great TV shows on DVD. Of course the internet is how I stay relatively in touch. With culture.


  1. Arrested Development shouldn't be considered. Funny, yes. On the same level as Curb, Simpsons, and Seinfeld? Not even close. Really, I find it mildy entertaining. Nothing specatular. What do you see in this show? Enlighten me.

  2. It is quite simply the most creative, funny show ever made: the best acting, the best characters, the best writing, the best everything. It takes what Seinfeld did for the sitcom and goes much, much further. If you don't get that, it's your loss.

    I watched the first episode of Curb. Laughed.
