    The Larry and Rosie O'Donnell scene in the beginning was truly great comedy. You had two legends arguing about who could better entice a potential bisexual, and it was an original discussion, something that the show has not really had as of late. Rosie is always good on this show and she did not disappoint here.

    There were some other good moments like Jeff's reactions during the baseball game and the random David Canary sighting as a drug dealer in the park, but for the most part this was really odd. A weird storyline with Larry's take on bowing and drugs, but what can you do. Still funny, but not so much after the first five minutes.

  • Rosie O'Donnell makes her second appearance on Curb Your Enthusiasm as Larry's rival for the affections of a woman. Elsewhere, Larry learns something about Japanese culture.


    After this particular season got off to a rather slow start, we are starting to see some strong episodes as season's end approaches. The exchanges between Larry and Rosie O'Donnell are the strong point of this episode. They are well written. I think it's a clever idea to have Larry and Rosie one-up each other at each encounter. The episode secondary story line, specifially where Larry is critical of the bow he receives from the manager of the Japanese restaurant, is also well done. However, this episode does have a liability. Specifically the return of freeloader Leon Black. Leon says he does not fly because "you need a photo ID for that man." Well, you need a photo ID to drive as well genius! Leon needs to disappear.
