Curb Your Enthusiasm - Season 9 - Page 2

post #51 of 98
Funkhouser letting loose on the water had me howling. Especially after his girlfriend brandished the knife to Larry. The shove was great too. The car wash thing was kinda meh. But I loved how everything unraveled for everyone at the end except for Larry.

2nd favorite of the season behind the pickle jar.

Oh yeah, totally forgot what a smoke show Sophia Loren was...hot damn.

What film is the Sophia Loren stripping scene from?

I am, uh, asking for a friend.

Kicking him from the dinner party was classic, esp after telling him to not sit on the arm of the chair.

 

Yeah i must've not paid attention because i didnt get the end with the car, some random neighbor did it and followed him to the car wash?

post #57 of 98
Yeah the car wash ending was definitely underwhelming after how good the episode was.

After watching it I had to go and rewatch Bob Einstein’s two episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Both comedy gold.

Him and Seinfeld going up to a valet in Beverly Hills asking to give a message to Dick Gosinya kills me.

They better have given him a great tip. 

 

Two rich assholes pulling a teenage prank on a guy working a low wage job does not exactly sound like comedy gold.

They were paid by media exposure.

I’m sure they were aspiring actors, they should be begging Seinfeld to be on his show.

If they were aspiring actors sure, if not, it is crap.

Haha, no. However, you'd make a great Hollywood producer.

Jokes guys.. I’m joking.

Dick Gosinya is funny though, especially in Einstein’s voice.

That was amazing on every level. Great, great episode.

Saw this mentioned on the ringer but this episode was kinda sorta the reverse Seinfeld finale with Larry’s past saving him and not punishing him.

I also can’t get by “he befouled the pool”. So damn funny.

That montage was amazing. The non-specific Middle East music is what made it art.
post #69 of 98
The ending with the Mufti and Ketchup was great. Only complaint would have been him trying to tip the driver.

Larry's way of putting the kid to bed was the best. He really is a prick.

post #72 of 98

I was NOT expecting a mini-callback montage with past guest stars!

 

FUN!

post #73 of 98

I am so glad to have this back, but something just feels a bit off. The mugging at the camera and the constant character breaks make this feel like a SNL sketch rather than the Curb I remember. It is still funny, and I am still glad to have it, but it just does not have the same feel for me. 

post #74 of 98
I feel this. And the new cameras being used make it feel a bit off. Not to be a downer but I hope he decides to do one last season and call it quits. Maybe have the last episodes last scene be a throwback to the first episodes first scene of h refusal to pick up a golf ball at the range of a fellow player due to a “bad back”.

Have it be the same actor, circumstance, etc... but now the situation has become reality. It’s not because of the mans hat that he refuses to pickup the ball. But the lame excuse given in the first episode has now become reality.

Could be cool.

"People don't sign fuck documents."

 

The Miranda stuff was limp.

post #76 of 98
Eh...not a fan of this one. Did we need 15 extra minutes just to squeeze in a Judge Judy cameo?
post #77 of 98

I'm trying to wrap my mind around everyone Larry knows being avid Judge Judy fans.

This was a pretty great line...

post #79 of 98

Not my favourite episode of the season, though Leon insisting that a Do-rag is in the same family as an ascot or pocket square was great.

post #80 of 98
The Leon stuff is almost always great. Him talking about his tan levels with Judge Judy was funny. The whole episode just felt..eh..
post #81 of 98

There were a handful of laughs, but 45 minutes is wayyyy too long for this show. It felt like 4 or 5 (or 6 or 7) half-baked ideas smushed inelegantly into one episode.

post #82 of 98

Larry's snort after Leon told Jeff to go see a dick chiropractor was great. I love it when it looks like these guys are genuinely cracking up on camera at the stuff being said, and since the show is mostly unscripted, I want to believe that the laughs are real.

 

Everything Leon was solid as always, and there were some good laughs in there, but for the most part I agree with those that didn't care too much for the episode. At 45 minutes, I wish it had packed in funnier stuff. That said, I did laugh a lot when Steven Weber produced the credit card adapter for his iPhone when Larry said he doesn't carry lots of cash on him.

Yeah, this episode felt like David just dumping all his leftover ideas for this season into one episode. You could probably take all the individual strands and build entire episodes around them. But as is, all the storylines felt like missed opportunities.  I'd remembered hearing about the Judge Judy thing weeks ago, and I thought we'd get something with a little more buildup and substance.  Instead they did the bare minimum to setup/justify the cameo and called it a day.

 

Leon's hilarious, but I'm watching the show for the cringe-y David stuff.  So when Larry shows up somewhere, like the old lady's house, with Leon in tow, we don't get those moments. I just wish Leon were used a little more sparingly.

post #84 of 98

Leon was literally the only thing that made the old lady subplot watchable for me.

post #85 of 98

that old lady subplot PISSED ME OFF hahahahaha

post #86 of 98

The old lady reminded me of how, after we moved into my current house, the former owner and his kids would come by on Halloween, and one of his kids invariably asked me "What did you do to my room?!?!" because I had replaced the blinds and drapes. It's MY room now, you little fucker. I also removed all your glow-in-the-dark stars!

Mostly I thought she was a bad actress.

post #88 of 98
I thought her lack of acting made it all the more infuriating

SO, BRAVO!!!

she really did come across as someone who just happened to randomly come into the house while shooting
post #89 of 98

It's fun to see who really takes to the improv on the show...

 The "F is for 'fucking awesome'" with F. Murray Abraham line and the "The verses are going to be Satanic" line — that's all Lin. He is a seriously funny person. Larry had no idea that was coming.

 

Impressive!

post #90 of 98
Good but not great finale. The stuff with F. Murray Abraham was the highlight.

I do think it was a mistake to make the last two shows super-sized episodes.
post #91 of 98

These last two leaning so hard on Miranda was a mistake. I'm all for guest stars but not at the expense of characters like Leon and Funkhouser.

 

Abraham was funny though.

"These proceedings shall fall under the auspices of the Code Duello (Irish version)."

 

What an amazing line to hear Nick Offerman utter.

Flula Borg!

I was not as down on this season as some of you, but I do concur that the longer runtimes have been more liability than benefit. If Larry had more ideas than he could cram into ten episodes, why not more episodes?

Supposedly the prospects of a tenth season are looking decent.
post #94 of 98

This was probably my least favorite season. Still lots of individual funny moments, but even season 8 had "Palestinian Chicken" and "Mister Softee," which were great start to finish.

It was weird they didn't do more with Ted Danson and Cheryl.

I’m not down on the season. I thought it was great overall. It just feels like after the Fatwa was lifted they just stumbled a bit to the finish line.
post #96 of 98

I thought the season was a good return to form, but not great. I may have let Vice Principals cloud my judgement a bit, though.

post #97 of 98

Next season should be this plot: Larry turns his home into a bed and breakfast and he and Leon judge all the guests.

post #98 of 98

I enjoyed the season overall but yeah, I wish they had done more with Ted and Cheryl.
