Curb Your Enthusiasm has a flair for getting David into disagreeable situations that alienate him from peers and acquaintances. The plots and subplots of the episodes are outlined by David and to keep it fresh and spontaneous, it is shot without script and the lines are largely improvised by actors as they go.
As the show is about David's life, it often involves his problems with social meetings and expectations and also his annoyance with other people's behavior which lead into awkward situations.
The show's 38 nominations in Primetime Emmy Awards can prove that the show has been popular and successful since it's debut. And in 2002, Curb Your Enthusiasm won the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series: Musical or Comedy.
