When I first saw The Larry Sanders Show, I didn’t find it funny. I just saw an episode here and there and I couldn’t realise the very clever humor inside that extremely original sitcom. How blind I was! Of course, now that everyone and their grandmother have ditched the canned laughters and are using single camera mockumentary style, The Larry Sanders show seems a little bit more “normal”. But still, there is genius in this show that made it age much much better than most other 1990’s shows. You could put it on TV now, and fans of Seinfeld, Arrested Development (should have been an HBO show, dammit!), Curb Your Enthusiasm, and The Office for example would just love it! And it’s actually surprising that out of its 6 seasons, they only released the first one on DVD. I guess whoever has the rights just want people to download the episodes from peer-to-peer networks…?
Yet again, another HBO show that I love.
