The opener was great.  As Lawrence O'Donnell was announcing the fatwa on David, I was gasping for air.

"WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?"

Larry's screaming had me in stitches.

What a great return to HBO after all these years and it's like the Cast never skipped a beat.. The Best for me was Larry just happens to walk into someone's home with the door "ajar" and ruin a lesbian wedding over it.. The so called groom wannabe was pissed.. LOL!! Honestly, this show could go on for years, but I know it probably won't go past 10 seasons..

Larry’s disguise was so damn good.
post #10 of 98

Larry's disguise reminded me of John Carpenter. Leon once again just stole everything. I love how Larry stops him and says "Wait wait wait. You shot a porno?"

I'll second that. They were running a lot of old episodes leading up to the new release, and it was basically like there was never a break in the action. Well, maybe Larry's performance was even a little more self-aware than usual, but it didn't bother me.

Watching Richard Lewis barely hold it together while Larry was going at it with him was comedy gold.

I mostly enjoyed this episode but like the premiere, there was one aspect that didn't work for me. In the premiere, it was the whole "bride/ groom" thing and in this episode, it was the fashion advice to the prostitute aspect. Both storylines felt a little forced, particularly in comparison to everything else.

 

I'm still very happy this show is back. Leon is a fucking treasure.

I'm very new to this show. I plowed through all previous seasons a few months ago. I don't know how often you rewatch the show, but I think this is a problem with the show right from the start. As I binged it, my biggest criticisms were often that the situations were pretty forced -- some worse than others for sure, but it's a hallmark of the show IMO. This one was definitely one the worst in that regard, but it's not out of character from the perspective of a fresh mind.

 

I also posted this in the wrong thread, but Leon's, "My name is Cheppy Johnson and I can't open this pickle jar!" just about killed me.

Agreed that sometimes the situations feel forced, and that's when the show is at its worst. Sometimes they cram plot points together in a way that's really awkward, but usually the laughs are enough for me to ignore that. Not this time. Also, a few eps are going to be longer this year, and I didn't think this one worked at 40 minutes.

post #19 of 98

Leon's line about "Fuckin' Fatwa Claus" coming down the chimney had me laughing, but the one that slayed me was when he got after Larry for fucking while wearing his glasses.

post #20 of 98
Great episode. Hooker-mitsvah, Buck Dancer, call back to Palestinian Chicken, “have you ever seen a titty.” Chappy Johnson. Loved it.

Larry's 'dirty talk' during sex.... : )

How great was Rushdie in this fantastic episode?

 

I'll be chuckling about "Fatwa sex" for weeks.

His "fuck it' made me do a spit take.

 

Definitely my favorite of the season so far.

Banks was great. Her bow after her bumbling lie was the best. Also dug Larry in the courtroom.
post #27 of 98

This was yet another great episode and a great decision on the part of Larry David for bringing this show back in a time when a lot of sitcoms suck in general.. Probably why they're bringing ROSEANNE back for a limited episode run.. Not sure how something like that will work in 2017, but whatever.. I always enjoy the attorney's wife and her foul mouth interaction with Larry, especially over her missing sister or whoever she was..

The guy who played the judge in that scene was stellar.

I know that guy from -something-, damnit.

 

The cop also got a great line delivery in there: "I'm so glad I came... This really isn't going the way you think it is."

So much to love in this episode. The subtle beep coming back to bite Danson. “Warm pocket candy”. Fatwa Sex. Rushdie wanting Hugh Jackman to play him. The restaraunt manager and Banks telling that lie so terribly.

Not a bad episode so far.

Considering our current political climate, I feel like Roseanne will be more relevant than ever.

I think I might recognize him from his stint on Weeds, but damn he's done a lot. The amount of voice work alone is pretty amazing.

Boston Legal! That was it!

 

That look of frustration stuck with me all these years, as he worked almost exclusively in shows I never watched.

Breakdown of the latest ep. I knew he looked familiar too - the cop was Damon Wayans Jr!

 

My favorite note was that Larry David couldn't be in-frame for most of Elizabeth Banks' "lie" takes, because he was cracking up. That's a pretty high compliment for an actor, to break Larry David.

post #35 of 98
Rushdie was so fucking funny in that episode.

"Fatwa sex?"
"The best sex there is."
post #36 of 98

"I would like to take a moment to acknowledge my former beautiful daughter, Jodie, who's now my handsome son, Joey. I love you, Joey. Keep up the good work." 

 

Leon talking about ordering his pants from Jamaica was the tops.

Cranston as the therapist was great.

I could watch a whole show of Larry and Leon just shooting the shit.

Love the
post #38 of 98

This was absolutely my favorite episode of the season so far, and maybe over the course of the show -- at least a top ten'er.  I laughed often.

post #39 of 98

Two of my favorite things in the episode were subtle bits of comedy between Larry, Richard Lewis, and Bob Einstein. The first was the awkward almost handshake that turns into a back of hand "bump" that Larry and Richard Lewis do at the art show, and the other was when Marty Funkhowser shakes everyone's hand except for Larry's and just gives him a look while saying "You're going to the funeral." that had me laughing.

I loved the little bit of Larry going in and then pulling back the split second he knew Marty wasn't going to bite.

post #41 of 98
Jeff asking Susan why she even gives a fuck about the Barnies Warehouse sale has me going. Larry telling Leon to get the fuck Out was great too. Awesome season so far.
post #42 of 98

"You told me to get the fuck out. You didn't tell me I couldn't come back."

post #43 of 98
Eh...maybe I was distracted by the World Series but I thought this was kind of a dud until the end with the re-enactment and the mail hitting Larry.
post #44 of 98

This was my favorite episode of the season, in part because there was no attention paid to the overarching fatwa business. Felt like classic Curb to me.

post #45 of 98

Yeah, I was happy for the reprieve from the fatwa story as well. Not my favorite of the season, but definitely the runner up. I thought it was hilarious.

Forget 'Snakes on a Plane'...we have Larry David on a Plane....honey.

 

 

post #47 of 98

Jesus, what another great episode.. How many of you have actually did what Larry did in this episode??? To send a text to someone else designed to get you out of doing something??? Fucking Larry David was Brilliant in this episode and once again, I totally dig his Attorney's wife.. She's awesome, but I always forget her name.. And Richard Lewis calling everyone "Honey"..LOL!!!!

post #48 of 98

Larry shoving the spritzer lady and screaming "WHATTHEFUCK!" was probably the hardest I've ever laughed at this show.

My wife did a fist pump. She's wanted to do the same thing for years.

 

Although I think the hardest I laughed may have been when Funkhouser described her drinking water as "like I put a straw in a frog's ass."

post #50 of 98

Definitely my favorite of the season so far. The airplane sequence put Larry in the most intense position imaginable. I've been there, and it sucked. Good gods how hilarious.
