Added DiffLines:

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The KafkaKomedy that was normal in ''{{Seinfeld}}'' is turned UpToEleven on this show. While you can easily say that [[{{Jerkass}} Larry is enough of a jackass]] that he deserves plenty of the punishment that comes his way (especially because he doesn't really knows when to back down or tone down the asshole), there are also many examples where the universe just seems to have it against Larry for no reason other than him ''existing'' (let alone just being in the wrong place at the wrong time), and this (plus the typical cast-ful of belligerent assholes that is normal to a Larry David production, including [[AuthorAvatar Larry]] himself, and the terrible things they do) can make it hard to find the fun in the gags, no matter how good the set-up. (And if you want good InUniverse examples of "DudeNotFunny" to illustrate this... well, look two Tropes down).

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Larry is almost always the object of scorn and derision for his actions and opinions, but a fair bit of the time the audience is meant to sympathize with his refusal to go along with various abritrary and capricious rules of "polite" society, believing that Larry is typically in the 'right'.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: While the eighth season was touted as the "Larry in NYC" season, only five of the ten episodes feature this setting, with the rest taking place in L.A. as usual.
