My cousin met Larry at the Yankee game (he works for YES network), that would be so cool to meet him.  I feel like I would expect him to be just like how he is in the show.  Can't wait to watch the new episode.

Check out the Netflix short documentary 'Long Shot', as it relates to 'Curb', David, baseball (and murder)

I thought the first episode suffered from being too formulaic and forced, but I still enjoyed it. Hopefully the rest of the season is a bit more creative.

I LOVED the episode.  Yea it was pretty formulaic, I'll agree.  There were some moments that felt more forced, but the end result was still endless laughter most of the episode.  Plus it seems like we got a funny storyline to revolve the season around, Fatwa!

I really loved the bride and groom scenes though  :lol

I saw that doc. pretty pretty pretty good.

Also, that ep. of Curb was always one of my favs.

I've always enjoyed this show and think it's one of the funniest series out there....but if I'm being honest these two episodes have just been 'meh' IMO. they've been rather predictable even for Curb standards and I may be in the minority but I think the whole angle they are playing this year with the fatwa really isn't that funny. Anyway.....

Last week's episode had me in stitches.  Bryan Cranston was great as Larry's shrink.

Easily the best episode of an otherwise weak season so far. I do find it curious when Larry decides to re-use old Seinfeld material (the "funeral hello"), but I can't complain too much when it's something relatively minor.

I'd say the last two (not last nights, I haven't watched yet) were my least favorite.  While Cranston was good, the last two episodes as a whole felt not only forced, but just wasn't even funny forced.

I feel this for this whole season. Love me some Curb, but this season just isnít doing it for me. Like you said, forced seems to be the way to describe it and itís not translating

Yea I think the whole season has felt forced, but at least I thought it was funny for the first few episodes so it didn't bother me so much.

Yeah, that's what I thought too (the civil war reenactment was especially a big overkill), but the last episode set things right. It was hilarious all the way through, and it felt effortless. You could feel that the cast had a blast while the cameras were rolling. Classic Curb right there. The show is the funniest when the jokes are rooted in realism. Here's hoping the rest will be the same.


Sycsa is perhaps the most brilliant and insightful man I have ever encountered.

This is a highly entertaining doc exploring Larry's and Bernie Sanders' family tree. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-zgSNCpP5c

spoiler: they're related, duh

Agreed...epic episode! Some of those scenes must have taken forever as you can see any one of them or all of them were about to crack up at any moment! :tup :tup

Yea I watched last night and was laughing so much.  A top episode IMO and I think that was the funniest Funkhouser has been on the show.

What a hilarious scene.  I also love the part between George and Larry with the pen from the table read.

This week was definitely the best of the season so far. Funk was great throughout.

The Funkhouser apology and Larry's reaction is one of the highlights of the season for me.

That was funny.


After what I thought was a lackluster first couple episodes the season really picked up steam and found it's groove. All in all it was very funny and very entertaining. Curious as to if there will be another season 'quickly' or if it'll be another few years.

There were a few dud episodes, but there were also some of the best episodes of the series.  A solid season overall and a welcome return IMO.   I do wonder with so much of the references to past episodes in the last few episodes, if this is it for the show.

After the first few, every single episode was stellar. Great season overall, which shocks me after that amazingly poor start.
