Roundtable discussion with Larry and the cast-recorded live at New York's 92nd street Y
Top Customer Reviews
Do I miss Cheryl? Yes, I do. I would have chosen to keep her in the cast, but her departure opened up a lot more opportunities to put Larry in hilarious and awkward situations with women. And Larry is the same as he is with women as he is with everyone else - he acts just like Larry. Leon is a great part of the cast - he's very "Krameresque" with his constant following of Larry wherever he goes and mooches off of him, but he says the most funny, silly, random things.
I have all seven seasons so far, and can't wait to add this to my collection! The replay value is great. I go through them about once a year and I still laugh as hard as ever. It's possible to watch these shows out of order and laugh, but there are enough life changes throughout the series (unlike Seinfeld) that make it more logical to watch it in order.
There better be another season!
Dialogues were contrived. I didn't sense spontaneity. Larry was too on the edge, forceful, losing the surprise element. I hope that Curb is not getting old. He tried a change and I commend him for that. The problem is that the end result is not as funny. Maybe the problem was on the execution. I am not sure.
The best episode is the "Palestinian Restaurant". That's the episode that the season will remembered for. But even on this one I felt that it was a missed opportunity.
The episode with Ricky Gervais had its moments, the one with Michael J. Fox was mostly flat.
The DVD extra has a 90 minutes quite funny conversation with the cast and Brian Williams. Larry said that he lost his Blackberry and all his notes that was saved in the device. I wonder if it was the notes for this season.
This season has so many funny moments that it would be an impossible task to recount them all. There is one where Larry's big thing becomes that he has to have a Jewish divorce lawyer. And he talks an LA team owner into doing the same. So they both drop a top notch divorce lawyer and get a Jewish incompetent to represent them for predictable results. People really do silly things like this when choosing lawyers so it couldn't be any more spot on.
Larry also has a superb feud with Michael J. Fox that is just brilliant. Larry is rarely bested but here he is up against a disabled philanthropist who is slyly thinking up things by the moment to drive Larry crazy. And does he ever!
Larry's black roommate is, as always, hilarious. The two of them together is always top flight. There is one episode where they are mistakenly taken for a gay couple which is hilarious. But they always end up together, whether in LA, NYC or even Paris! It's almost too bad they aren't gay as they are perfect for one another.
Suzie is her foul mouthed best every time she appears onscreen. jeff is his usual obnoxious self. Richard Lewis and Larry make their usual odd couple pairing as well. They have been friends in real life since summer camp as kids but it is always a relationship in turmoil. They wouldn't have it any other way either.Read more ›

I love this show. Never get tired of watching it. Can completely relate as if it's telling my own life story.Published 6 hours ago by Judy Kennamer
Generally good but somewhat tiresome. Palestinian Chicken and the Rosie O'Donnell shows were classics.Published 1 day ago by James Berger

Hard to say. It'd be nice if he ended at 10, with a nice and perfect 100.. er, 101, probably. But it'll be another year before Curb 9, if it happens at all. I don't see why it wouldn't, honestly.
Larry IS done with a new movie that will premiere on HBO soon though. After that I'm sure we'll... Read More
