  • If you want to get into Curb Your Enthusiasm, this fantastic episode is a good place to start.

    This is one of the best examples of how acute and hilarious the writing of Larry David can be. While the amusing dialogue is down to the brilliant improvisation of Curb's cast, much of why this show is funny is, as was the case was Seinfeld, because of the way David intricately structures the plot so that no matter what his central character does to amend a bad situation he has already created for himself, it ultimately gets worse.

    The effectiveness of this plotting technique is evident in this episode's final gag which is undoubtedly the 30 minute's most hilarious moment. Another reason for why this episode is great is because it is one of the few appearances of manager Jeff's wife Susie, played with hilarious venom by Susie Essman.
