This show is absolute dog poo poo. It needs a laugh track so I can tell when something funny supposedly happens. So far I laugh maybe 3 times per season. Larry David is a complete narcissist with absolutely no self or social awareness and doesn't give a flying gently caress about anyone around him. The first three seasons he's a complete rear end in a top hat to everyone around him and noone (except Susie, after the fact) ever calls him out for it. I mean he fires 3 chefs from his restaurant because he felt like it. And then half way through season 4 all of a sudden he's the victim and everyone around him is the overreacting rear end in a top hat. Except he's still completely unable to recognize social boundaries and just pisses people off the longer he talks, which is always too long. His friends are morons who never tell him to stfu before he says something stupid, and none of them attempt to explain or mitigate anything he says or does. And that's what really needs to happen. Someone telling this social retard to just shut the flying gently caress up, but noone does.

None of this is funny. It's just infuriating. The main character is an annoying rear end in a top hat, and shits on everyone around him with no consideration for them at all. Supposed to be funny right? He can never see when he's pissing someone off and just keeps on going. I'm sure that's supposed to be funny too. Can he just not understand when someone says "no"? Is the guy a sociopath? Is the show trying to turn a sociopath into a someone to laugh at?

Comparisons to Seinfeld are inevitable. George Costanza gets caught in the same kind of misunderstandings, but never drags out the situation with pointless monologues. He also has Jerry and Elaine to warn him when he's about to do something stupid. His story arcs are also interspersed with actual humor. None of which happens in CYE, where Larry is just the unrestrained social retard, pissing off everyone around him and being completely oblivious to it. Hilarious I'm sure.

I thought it was funny they expected him to act like a millenial and just sit staring at his phone. And I was with Larry for the most part but as soon as he touched the thermostat he crossed the line.

But Schilling prefers dressing Susie. “Larry’s clothes are nice, but they’re boring,” she says. There’s a formula to his pieces — all of which David apparently takes home — neutral colors, slacks, collared shirts, unstructured blazers, cashmere crews. No prints, no jeans, nothing cheap.

Oh I forgot about the backscratcher. Was it over or under clothes? Over I got no problem with, under is bad. And who cares if someone picks things up to look at them in your house? Do you live in a museum? That'd be like having a full bookshelf and getting mad if someone pulls a book out to look at it.

Edit: VV It's not like he picked up a ship in a bottle and shook it. He grabbed a magnifying glass and looked at stuff through it. I'd do the same thing.

What an episode, there are so many amazing moments I can't even single one out or believe they're all in one episode.

Larry on surveillance is a gag I'm surprised they haven't used before, that was incredible. I was impressed Larry restrained himself enough not to hassle the kitchen staff.

I love her little emphasis on the last couple letters on some words - I am not sure if it's an act or how she is. For example, she's like, "Wanna watCH ?" She does it a couple more times and it's loving hilarious.

So, Harvey, what became of the giant penny?

They actually let him keep it.

This gif is absolute peak Curb for me. Such an amazing scene.

The entire stretch at Deidre's house was amazing. Larry refusing to leave, the hosts watching him on video like he was a toddler, the sweater tuck, and finally winning over the videographer. I think this may have been my favorite episode in a few seasons.

This feels like a Curb/Seinfeld plot where he wanted to leave the show but was trapped by a contract so he just started acting out until they fired him.

Hmm wonder if Jeff will stay on Curb, that's pretty damning. The detail on what Jeff actually did is kinda wild when you can find it

Even though Curb is not really serialized canon (is that the right term?) Jeff's still a decently big part of it to write off.

I don't know, I mean I think it's perfectly legitimate that he got canned from the Goldbergs for that behavior. But unless he's being that way on the set of Curb, I don't really have any strong feelings about whether or not Larry should fire him.

Like I agree his behavior was lovely, but I'm not sure I think it's "fire him from everything" lovely. But that's just my .02.


E: Just based off that article, that is. If there's crazier stuff then idk
