  • Larry: Just 'cause a person's bald doesn't neccesarily mean I have to like them.

    9.5
    A book about freaks, coupled with a chauffeur's incapacity, sets Larry up for a string of ejections involving Ted Danson, John McEnroe and a group of mourners. Curb your enthusiasm season six has been the worst so far and I was begining to think that the show has lost its charm until I saw this episode it was just really really really funny, the freak book was really funny and I always like it when Lary David gets kicked out of place, in this episode it happens twice Larry gets kicked out of Ted's house and he gets kicked out of the concert, it was just really funny.moreless
  • Happy birthday Becker

    9.3
    It is testimony to this show that every episode you can never know how it will end in relation to how it started.



    This week we started off with Ted Danson's birthday party, which a drunk limo driver (invited in by Larry) abruptly crashes. This leave Larry with one limo at his home. Following a desperate plea from the limo driver the next morning, Larry accepts a pick up, being one John McEnroe. As you can imagine if you watch this show, that's a recipe for disaster. Following Larry throughout this episode is a book picturing 'freaks' of various types.



    Another great instalment. Cleverly plotted with lots of funny moments.



    My one small reservation was that at the end of the previous episodes Larry would always get his comeupance (whether essentially right or wrong). This time it seems he's decided to be a bit nicer to Larry who seems to get a good ending to whatever shanningans he's been up to. I'm undecided as to which I prefer. The previous style had me infuriated at time bemoaning Larry's bad luck. Now I'm somewhat ambivalent about it. We'll see how it goes before making final judgment.moreless
