However, its flaws are not terrible.

Curb Your Enthusiasm

Curb Your EnthusiasmCurb Your Enthusiasm is a fictionalized story of Larry David. The HBO series is funny and misanthropic, but very cleverly crafted. David inspired George Costanza. In the show, he feels like he is copying Constanza. That made the Seinfeld reunion show in one season a little awkward. Curb Your Enthusiasm brilliantly unpacks trivialities. It is not a show to binge for long. Although its general disdain and cynicism for humanity are hilarious, it can become too much after a while.

Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

The show is a stand out for Amazon. The talented Rachel Brosnahan is Midge Maisel. The Jewish housewife does not have a happy marriage. Her husband is a cheater and a joke-stealer.
