So. You're minding your own business, filling up your gas tank, when your cell phone rings. Hmmm. Should you answer it? Because you've heard you shouldn't use cell phones near gas stations since they can produce small sparks that can ignite big fires. But wait. Could that actually be true? Sounds like a job for MythBusters!
Each half-hour episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm features verité-style footage of David (playing himself) at home, at work and around town, as he gets into predicaments with fictional and real-life personalities. With cast regulars Jeff Garlin (as manager Jeff Greene) and Cheryl Hines (as wife Cheryl) reprising their roles, the series features appearances by guest celebrities playing themselves or character roles. Candid, unsparing and self-deprecating, Curb Your Enthusiasm brings the off-kilter comic vision of Larry David--co-creator and co-executive producer of one of the most lauded comedy series in TV history, Seinfeld--to HBO. The series blurs the lines between reality and fiction, as David (playing himself) and a cast of real and fictional characters are followed around Los Angeles by a ubiquitous camera that chronicles the private, often banal world of a (relatively) public man. Having evolved from the 1999 HBO special Larry David: Curb Your Enthusiasm, this series proves how seemingly trivial details of one's day-to-day life can precipitate a "Murphy's Law" chain of misfortune to hilarious effect. The protagonist of Curb Your Enthusiasm has a knack for getting himself into uncomfortable situations that end up alienating him from peers and acquaintances. The result is an unpredictable format that's unlike anything else on TV.

As an elderly librarian, Giacomo Casanova (played by the iconic Peter O'Toole), has a lot of exciting memories. A young servant girl, Edith (Rose Byrne), is treated to his lurid recollections and, before too long, she discovers that there's life in this old dog yet. It's enough to burst her bodice! But this is nothing compared to the escapades of the young, hot and horny master of seduction. The youthful Casanova (cheekily portrayed by David Tennant) cuts a swathe through the women of Europe with his dashing good looks and irrepressible confidence. But though the laydeez offer their full approval (usually expressed horizontally), the law is outraged by his antics. Made an outlaw for offences against government and church, Casanova leads the life of a fugitive.
