    Curb Your Enthusiasm Discussion

    This can be for general series discussion, and of course for the new season.

    Love the new season so far, it's actually a show I enjoy now as much as I had when it first started.

    Anyone catching the new season? Love the interaction with Ted Danson.

    My favorite episode so far this season was the Artificial fruit episode.

    Love the show, one of my all time favourites. I haven't seen the new season yet as I'm waiting for it to completely finish and then I can binge it on Now TV. I'm also doing a rewatch at the moment and have just finished season 8 again. Palestinian Chicken is one of my favourite episodes.

    Marty Funkhauser was my favourite character for Larry to play off, shame he passed away. lil orphan Funkhauser

    I like some aspects of the new season, but really this show is going off the deep end for me now.

    The scene with his assistant and the dog bowl and the tattoos and the wiping his glasses on her shirt is maybe the most times I’ve thought Larry was the asshole in the scene.

    I really just want it to go back to basics, it’s much more cinematic and inauthentic looking now.

    To me the show hasn't gone off the extreme deep end yet. It's Always Sunny to me I go full episodes without laughing. Curb I still manage to laught throughout an episode.

    Re: Curb Your Enthusiasm Discussion

    Hoping to check this out at some point this year. Is this one of those "wait till x season before it gets good" or will I (hopefully) dig it from the get go?

    I remember it being much more low key and realistic in the first few episodes but you should know by the end of the first season if it’s for you.

    I'm still loving the show, but I can see what Marketh is saying. It does feel like the show has changed considerably from what it started out as, but I still think it's quality. Richard Lewis is always a highlight for me, but I am missing Funkhouser too. Especially when his name is mentioned in episodes this season!

    I really didn't like the way they shot season 9. Felt way too polished.

    Jon, after 3-4 episodes you'll have a flavour of whether you like Larry or not. That'll tell you everything you need to know about should you keep watching or not given every episode is Larry centric.

    Re: Curb Your Enthusiasm Discussion

    Jon Hamm as Larry David Jr is the highlight of this pretty weak season for me.

    Not that Cheryl’s sister had a ton of character development to begin with, but kinda bugged me that Kaitlin Olson basically played her as Sweet Dee in this episode. She was written that way a bit too.
