Men's corduroy pants that bunch up at the groin area when you sit down, people sitting at the movies who won't move their legs when you're trying to get past, friends who put you on the speaker phone when you think you're having a private conversation. These are the things that trouble the waters in the life of Larry David, creator and star of the new HBO sitcom, "Curb Your Enthusiasm." They might sound like nothing more than life's little irritations, but David is the guy who co-created the great sitcom about nothing, "Seinfeld."

"The Best of Leon," "My Favorite Leon Part," "Leon Awesomeness" — these are all YouTube titles. The clips are taken from Larry David's long-running HBO sitcom, "Curb Your Enthusiasm. " In the videos, David, the show's neurotic protagonist, is a mere foil. That's because the real star is 47-year-old comedian J.B. Smoove, aka Leon Black and the outspoken half of one of TV's funniest — and unlikeliest — odd couples. Smoove, a former "Saturday Night Live" writer, has been featured on TV (Fox's "'Til Death")

The new film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is one of the least necessary artistic projects of 2005. There have been so many. And unlike the last one (Bridget Jones's Diary, just four years ago), the new version is largely faithful to the novel and to earlier film versions. It breaks no new ground, adds nothing. I enjoyed it a lot. Jane Austen's famous opening sentence ("It is a truth universally acknowledged") is intended to flatter the reader with feelings of worldly superiority to the claustrophobic society she writes about.

Dan Rodricks went to the new Gino's Burgers & Chicken. There, he discovered good manners, people waiting in line patiently calmly. He mentions the "chat-and-cut" phenomenon that Larry David introduced on a recent "Curb Your Enthusiasm. " Apparently, David, the Linnaeus of rudeness, has been having fun with restaurant behavior this season. I've read as much on dining websites, and friends tell me about it. I am alergic to "Curb Your Enthusiasm. " I know you're supposed to not like the characters, but I hate, hate, hate them so much that I get zero entetaintment from watching them.  naming-of-rude-phenomena thing feels super stale.

Lots of sophomore series like ABC's Pushing Daisies are settling into their new season with second episodes tonight, but guess what, viewers don't seem to care. Second-year broadcast network series across the board are down from where they were last year. Network viewers are going elsewhere for their prime-time pleasures, and one of those places is cable's Comedy Central, where The Sarah Silverman Show starts its second season tonight. Silverman isn't for everyone, but those who get the offbeat comedian worship her the way some of us are worshiping Tina Fey these days.

In an interview this week, Larry David, creator of "Curb Your Enthusiasm," answered a question from me about matters of taste by saying, "And the more people I can offend, the better." If that is the standard, then Sunday's premiere of the seventh season of this HBO comedy is the best. Right out of the box, David is absolutely pushing the limits of TV comedy on issues of race, gender, coarse language, mental illness and physical disease. You don't realize how incredibly edgy David's work on HBO is until you try to write about it in a family newspaper and suddenly discover that you can barely start to describe situations and setups, let alone dialogue and punch lines.

It's Thursday night on the seventh floor of Hagerstown Hall dorm, and there's a party going on.Well, sort of a party.In the lounge, there are three giant bags of potato chips, two huge platters of chocolate chip cookies and a couple of cases of soft drinks. There are also 15 or so University of Maryland, College Park students in cutoffs, sweats, jeans and gym shorts eating, drinking and waiting for the start of "Seinfeld."Other dormies wander in and out. One woman dries her hair in preparation for a date that she says "will probably be totally Elainesque"; one guy slides in the door like Cosmo Kramer.
