Hey, my summary is an alliteration! Anyway, is it just me or is this season painting Larry as a very unsavory character? He was always pretty quirky and often made stupid decisions but was basically good-natured, or affable, as he would say. Most of the situations he got in were because of the absurd behavior of the people around him while he remained the relatively sensible one and you could feel sorry for him when things went horribly wrong.
That seems to have been flipped around this season. I can't picture the Larry of just a season ago going to ridiculous lengths to protect a cell phone while potentially allowing a little girl to drown. The ridiculous factor of the show has been pushed past the point where I can suspend disbelief.
Maybe this is a sign that the show has run its course. Or maybe I just need to shift my perspective and start enjoying the show on a different level. I'm not sure yet, but I'm hoping it'll return to form.
