Damn, I thought it was next week. And like a jackass I was actually watching an episode from last season on Sunday night too (the read through where Leon pretends to be Danny Duperstein and the great "She has a rash on her pussy" line). Well, at least I have something other than another anticlimactic All-Star game to look forward to tonight.

I thought it was awesome.  Like PG said, it usually is. 

My recording cut off before the preview, so I don't know if he ends up in NYC next week or if that's still a couple weeks away.  Either way, they set up the move perfectly.

I'm not so sure he's wrong.  I never grow tired of it, but I would argue that is the 'central theme' of the show; his behavior gets him into all kinds of trouble.  And it would be hard to argue that his behavior isn't obsessive, anxious and overall neurotic.

I loved the scene with the girl getting her first period... she is literally having the worst moment of her entire life, yet his level of agitation matches hers to a tee... and he gets to that point every day about something. It was brilliant having him match her on that level.

Oh I was saying he was wrong for being weary of it  :-P neuroticism is clearly his style / the theme of both shows.

Quote
Critics Laud Larry David, International Relations Genius


Weeks before the eighth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm premiered on HBO, we were hearing that the season's third episode, "The Palestinian Chicken," where a Palestinian chicken restaurant moves in next door to a much-beloved Jewish deli in Westwood, was one of the show's best ever--"an instant classic," in the estimation of Variety's Brian Lowery.

If anything, that undersells the daring of the episode, which aired last night. As Hit Fix's Alan Sepinwall notes, the entire episode was "layed out as a parody of both Israeli/Palestinian tensions and the Ground Zero mosque kerfuffle." The episode's basic conceit, explains The AV Club's Meredith Blake, is that the Palestinian chicken restaurant turned "Larryís ostensibly liberal friends...into conservative, pro-Israel reactionaries" whose arguments against the restaurant's location "sound a whole lot like those made by opponents of the 'Ground Zero Mosque' last year ('Itís insensitive. Canít they open a few blocks uptown?')." Those aren't topics many television comedies strive to cover, and certainly not with the "'Did they really just go there?' element that Larry David's HBO sitcom thrives on," writes The Wrap's John Sellers. Sellers explains:

    "Take, for instance, the following exchange, and imagine it being said by, say, two guests on "Nightline," or by co-workers at your office:

    "'I like you,' says an Arab woman, flirting with a balding older man with a New York accent.

    "'What's not to like?' he replies.

    "Eh, you're a Jew.'

    "Now put that in the context of an exchange between Larry David and a scorchingly hot, though extremely anti-Semitic, purveyor of addictive rotisserie chicken, and you have a stellar comedic moment."

Along with being breathtakingly funny, Blake argues, the episode made a persuasive argument for the David Doctrine in international relations. "Thereís something kind of brilliant about Larryís hedonistic approach to diplomacy," observes Blake. "[N]egotiations, sanctions and suicide bombs wonít get Palestine anywhere; great sex and delicious chicken will." That David had the confidence to go ahead with the episode, and make a chicken-and-sex-based approach to peace in the Middle East seem almost viable, is a testament to his unique position in American comedy. "Like his collaborator Jerry Seinfeld, David sees the world through a prism of potential-joking," explains Entertainment Weekly's Ken Tucker. "Neither of them is overtly political, nor do they seek to break taboos in a latterday Lenny Bruce sense. On Curb, jokes about religion and ethnicity are cast in terms of specific people in particular situations whose outrage, whether genuine or feigned, can be satirized merrily."

I've been a little behind this season, but I've now watched up through the "Social Assassin" episode. Loved the hell out of it.

Anyone else's s/o really despise this show? My wife hates it, I think because she responds to LD's character as if he were a real person and she hates him.

I'm actually waiting until Treme ends (hopefully years from now) to go back and watch the Wire. I've seen all of the Sopranos. It's amazing. Plus it's all filmed within 20 miles of my hometown.

This and the Palestinian chicken episode are both up there for best ever.

Great episode.  I'd definitely put it up there with Palestinian Chicken and The Hero as my favorites so far.

Next week with Michael J. Fox looks pretty good too.

Overall, I've been a little disappointed with this season. There's definitely been some hilarious lines, but the full episodes have fallen a little flat for me (with the obvious exception of the Social Assassin). I just don't find that I am as excited for next week at the end of an episode as I used to be. That said, this week's was very good although I found myself hoping Buckner dropped the baby (been watching too much Louie).

Seriously. Just rewatched this last night with a bunch of people, and it was even funnier! I was crackign up the whole way thru, even before things happened just thinking about what was going to come up next. I'm going to say its the best of the season, even better than the Palestinian chicken episode.

 I was psyched to see Wanda Sykes on the show
best season imo was when she was on it - Crazy Eyes Killa, the Christmas show that year with the "live creche"

I finally watched the finale. Great season.

My late grandmother had Parkinson's, so all the easy jokes about Muhammad Ali playing Jenga and whatnot don't do much for me. But I thought MJ Fox was fucking brilliant. Curb may be the only show I can think of that's savvy enough to get laughs out of topics like this without coming off as just being lazy and mean.

You just need the app at this point. I think it's like $10 a month.

Another great season!

I was at synagogue a few weeks ago and in the sermon the Rabbi referred to Larry. He's a huge Curb fan!
