Now this is what I've been waiting for: an episode of Curb where Jerry and Larry can just talk to one another and have those simple conversations that Seinfeld made popular and Larry David has expanded on through his own show. Whether it was talking about who would talk to the secretary about the bare midriff or discussing how much napkins one should use during a dinner, it was great to hear the two going back and forth and riffing off of each others lines.
However, as genuine and improvised as the lines were, there were some pretty strange and awkward plot devices. We've seen dream sequences and daydreams from Larry David, but the flashback where Larry David played the mothers deceased husband was very surreal. At first, I didn't know what to think about it, but when it came back to play a big role in the argument of Richard Lewis and Larry, I thought it was pretty good. Also, if you're wondering how the bare midriff would come into play later in the episode, you have to wait until the final minutes, where you'll be laughing so hard at how ridiculous it is.
I've found Season 7 to be a little surreal in the plots.. but at the same time, the humor is on an entirely different level. It seems two years was enough time for everybody to figure out new stuff and new plots to follow. I'm really enjoying season 7 so far and hope that the Seinfeld plot point has a good payoff.
