They...yeah, they haven't. You can find the boxsets on DVD and all, but A TON of people don't know it exists. However, the people I met here who have seen the shows say they are very hilarious.

I've tried to watch Seinfeld on several occasions, but I've never laughed, not even a mild chuckle. Do I have a broken funny fuse?

Curb your Enthusiasm is in my top 3 favourite shows. Tried to watch seinfeld and I got bored and didn't like any of the characters.

Meh.

I really don't know what is the matter with you people.

Clearly, anyone who doesn't like them a bit of Seinfeld is a broken person with broken opinions and some serious issues all of that has stemmed from.

No, we get Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm. But it's Sky Atlantic that shows it.

Curb your enthusiasm is good though.

I really, really, really, really hope you all realise that is a parody of dire sitcoms of the 70s?

God, the arrogance in this thread. You can't possibly have a better sense of humour than other countries. Sure, you can have a better idea of what's funny and what's not than, let's say someone from your age, from your city, but you can't have a "better" idea than anyone else in the world. Humour comes from the roots of your society, and therefore living in another society means you usually focus on different things. I'd even go as far as saying that the notion that Germans do not have a sense of humour is stupid, because germany has a completely different history than America or the UK.

I wouldn't phrase it exactly that way but I generally agree. I'd add The League of Gentlemen and Little Britain, Harry Enfield & Paul Whitehouse stuff, The Fast Show, and Absolutely to the list.

Something about American comedy turns me off. The look of it, from Cheers onwards. I've never watched any of them.
