Curb Your Enthusiasm

Recommended Posts

It was very good. Not the best episode, and followed the tried and tested Curb formula very obviously, but there have been much worse season openers.

 

Predictions:

The incident with the girl at Jeff and Susie’s didn’t really go anywhere - so I guess this could become the focus of the season? In addition to Larry opening his own coffee shop.

Yeah, it seems there's going to be a whole #MeToo thread running through the season that will deal with the idea of Larry being 'cancelled' and whatnot.

 

Jeff Garlin's a good sport isn't he? "That monster" drew a proper belly laugh from me.

The baseball cap was brilliant, and the Weinstein stuff was inspired. A great start to the new series.

 

Opening with a Larry/Leon scene was a very promising sign as well.

This week's was a solid mid-tier Curb episode. Those conversations between Larry and Jeff where they both play off each other's anger work very well. But good heavens, Ted Danson suddenly looks older than Larry.

 

The highlight was

Suzie hosting a dinner party with the huge painting behind her, like a terrifying mafia Don.

The Weinstein thing in ep.1 was hilarious. 


I was watching it and thought “Damn, Jeff looks unfortunately like Harvey Weinstein”. 
 

Then they did a joke about it. :lol:

The ending was especially funny given how popular the CYE end credits meme has become.

I have to watch this alone. Wife actually had to leave the room last night:

’I can’t watch this horrible neurotic man any more’...

My wife is pretty much the same after the last season so I have to watch it in my own time. Also another great bit from episode 3:

I wish Larry David could question your wife about her opinion. It would make a great episode.

“You want to impress people with lies?”

“How else do you impress them?”

 

I just realised this show has now run for longer than Seinfeld, crazy.

By what measure? It has more seasons, but much fewer episodes. It had already been "on the air" for almost double the amount of years before this season started.

Time-wise certainly but I was mainly referring to the fact that it’s now on its tenth season.

An Ember mug. Was expecting some kind of revelation that it already existed.

Found a YouTube channel that has all the season 10 episodes (to date), albeit in 3 minute or under chunks... I haven't watched this in a while, but it's been really enjoyable, I think I'll get a Now TV pass and catch up on the episodes I've missed. The wedding episode was a real highlight, but so was the episode with Clive Owen.

 

Anyway, I think the big twist to this season is going to be 

Spoiler

the toilets in Latte Larry's. Maybe something to do with his new "handicapped friend" inviting other handicapped people to the opening (because Larry is determined to have "handicapped friends") and something is going to go seriously wrong with the Pee Cube and the bizarre ladies squatting toilet.

‘You look like Einstein’s gardener’

I thought this week’s episode was great, with plenty of zingers. Though again, the ending didn’t tie up that well.
