"Lucky for us, the 'misanthropic moron' keeps asking the not-so-eternal questions..." -- Grade: A-
Ultimate DVD - 09/01/2006
4 stars out of 5 -- "It's laugh out loud funny, both a comic look at the frustrations of everyday life and a reaction to the inevitable frictions of living within the melting pot of a modern city."

Life continues to befuddle hapless millionaire (and SEINFELD producer) Larry David in this fifth season of shows. As usual, Larry is joined by his faithful, beleaguered wife, Cheryl (Cheryl Hines), and his manager, Jeff (Jeff Garlin), while regular guests such as Ted Danson, Wanda Sykes, and Richard Lewis are on hand to add to the mayhem. The fun begins with Larry wondering whether he's adopted after his father seems to suggest that he might be, leading to a long-standing subplot that runs through the entire season. But as Larry tries to figure out his past, the present throws innumerable curveballs in his direction, with gay rights activists unhappy with him, a sandwich that bears his name not being quite to his taste, and a Seder set up by Cheryl ending in disaster. While season five will present comfortable and familiar viewing for those already familiar with Larry's antics, there are a few surprises in store, especially as the final episode careers towards an unexpected ending.
