Why would I have a problem with it? John Redcorn is gay, and I've been friends with him for twenty years.

I love that you can hear Larry David's laughter throughout that scene.

When Seinfeld was actually on air during its first run, I had no idea who Larry David was and only really discovered him once Curb became a series. It was only after that point that I discovered just how much his voice cameos on Seinfeld.. phone calls, people yelling off-screen, and of course George Steinbrenner. And then, of course there's this.

Here is a bunch more Larry David in Seinfeld cameos http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9x_z...feature=related

We own the complete DVD set and have gone through it twice now. I've also seen all the episodes several times on reruns. Never get tired of it.

One of my favorite Costanza moments: "Was that wrong?"

A great moment is also George seeing Jerry's new suede jacket for the first time. He starts off all cool saying he won't even ask how much it was. Over a 1 minute time span he goes from cool to completely flipping out over the cost of the jacket without Jerry saying a word!

you just need to know a few things about Larry's life:

pre-season 7 Curb spoilers ahead.

He got divorced from his wife, started dating a black woman from a Katrina family he took into his house, THAT woman got cancer. then Season 7.

That's about it, I think. You can gather from watching that other characters that make appearances are friends or associates or people who Larry knows.

The show is also greatly improved by the knowledge that it's not scripted line by line at all. There's a guide to the things that need to happen in a scene and that's pretty much it. Most all of the hilarious lines are improvised.

I have a question, how are the commentaries on the DVD's? Are they worth listening, or are they just annoying and get in the way? Some commentaries (such as the ones on Stella) are great because it's the actors passionately talking about behind the scenes stuff, other times they are boring (such as The Wire), where it's just a production assistant blabbing in a monotone voice about crap that has nothing to do with the episode.

Suckered nothing. Curb Your Enthusiasm is basically the Seinfeld sequel. And the fact that it contains a literal sequel within that should just seal the deal for watching the whole show.

But if you do insist on watching just Season 7, the only thing that hasn't been mentioned so far that you should know is that Larry David is a huge rear end in a top hat. I don't think you can step into 7x01 without knowing that.

Let me tell you something, funny boy... You know that little stamp? The one that says New York Public Library? Well, that may not mean anything to you, but that means a lot to me. One whole helluva lot. Sure, go ahead, laugh if you want to. I've seen your type before -- flashy, making the scene, flaunting convention. Yeah, I know what you're thinking... Why's this guy making such a big stink about old library books? Let me give you a hint, junior. Maybe we can live without libraries, people like you and me.... Maybe. Sure, we're too old to change the world. What about that kid, sitting down, opening a book right now in a branch of the local library and finding pictures of pee-pees and wee-wees in The Cat in the Hat and The Five Chinese Brothers. Doesn't he deserve better? Look, if you think this is about overdue fines and missing books, you'd better think again. This is about that kid's right to read a book without getting his mind warped. Or maybe that turns you on, Seinfeld... Maybe that's how you get your kicks... You and your goodtime buddies... I've got a flash for you, joy boy. Partytime is over.

I don't know if its been mentioned yet, but I think my favorite episode is the backwards/wedding in india episode. It was really kinda gimmicky, but some of the jokes in that ep are hilarious.

George refusing to take off his timberlands and then later coloring them black for the wedding.

It was pretty much THE show to watch, it was on all the time, and it never got old seeing repeat episodes. I admit I am one of the people who bought the coffee table book series collection as soon as it came out, and don't regret it one bit.

One of my favorite moments is from The Bris:

"Darling, you see where that glass is? How that glass is near the edge of the table. You got the whole table there to put the glass, why you chose the absolute edge, so half the glass is hanging off the table, you breath and that glass falls over, then you're gonna have broken glass on the carpet, embedded in the carpet fibers, deep, deep in the shag, broken glass, bits of broken glass that you never get out. you can't get it out with a vacuum cleaner. Even on your hands and knees with a magnifying glass, you can't get all the pieces, and then you think you got it all and two years later, you're walkin' barefoot and you step on a piece of broken glass and you kill yourself, is that what you want? I don't think you want that, is it? .. Do you?"
