I’m a hardcore atheist but if I worshiped a god, there is only one person that I would ever consider, and that man is Larry David. He’s changed my life since this first moment I laid eyes on Seinfeld. In some ways it has ruined my social life. When I’m around people it’s as if I’m forced to go into bits when a situation arises. I’ve scared off countless women because of this, and I’ve stopped talking with some women entirely because they told me they hated the show. How can I associate myself with these people — are they even people in the first place?
This week I started re-watching the most recent season of Curb Your Enthusiasm and it is still as brilliant as the day it aired. I would argue the Palestinian restaurant episode is one of the greatest segments in television history.
When Larry David was doing the rounds for his new HBO movie ‘Clear History,’ he was asked if there would be a ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, and his response was Larry Davidish.
I don’t know. I really don’t know. I couldn’t say. Ask me in six months.
He later was asked why it took so long for him to make up his mind about another season of Curb, which warranted: “I’m just an indecisive fellow. You should see me at a restaurant!”
If Curb finally calls it a day, those 80 episodes need to be put in a museum for future generations to enjoy.
