“I was being affable…”

Tuesday, December 13, 2005 by

Curb Your Enthusiasm is still very funny, but if there are any more episodes like the one on More4 on Sunday I might have to stop watching it. By the end of it I was a nervous wreck, because everyone seemed to be hugely unreasonable and I hated everyone in it, apart from Larry. The rabbi, Cheryl’s mum, the survivor, the Survivor … Larry was right and they were wrong.

I don’t doubt that everything is grist for Larry to find himself in an uncomfortable situation, but one of the things I enjoy about this show is its naturalness – as I eluded to in the OTT review of the first episodes. Yet in this episode, as with some others earlier in the run (I’m thinking here of “no gifts”), everyone else seems to behave in completely illogical and unnatural ways. And I always want Larry to win anyway.

It is still funny, though – but I’d rather have more “Are we going to fuck or talk about your dirty suit?” than “Somebody get a sponge”.
