Update: The last episode showed a Seinfeld episode within a larry david CYE episode. It was really wonderful. If you are a Seinfeld fan, you must see the last episode of this season even if you do not like this show. I am a fan of both so was in heaven!

Original Review:

I just watched Larry David do a send up of Michael Richards' infamous "N" word rant to a heckler on this season. David uses the real Richards (Kramer) with the black comedian who lives with him on the show. This is typical of Larry David, who considers nothing too sensitive for comedic exploration. This is one big reason why I love this show. Larry David has to be the most Politically Incorrect Person in America and I love him for it!

There are just so many funny things this season that any reviewer could write a small book about the joys of Season 7. We open with his girlfriend having breast cancer and Larry's wanting to end the relationship. Somehow he manages to find a therapist who ends up blaming him for the cancer! (As a cancer patient, I found this whole cancer episode very funny.) We revisit his mother's death via her tombstone and Larry even manages to get the tombstone cutter mad at him. He becomes persona non grata at his country club after killing another member by making him mad and the guy had high blood pressure (which explodes), all over the inanity of playing through, or not, in golf. He wears women's underwear as an alibi for Suzie's husband when she finds panties in his glove compartment. He and Richard Lewis seriously come unhinged together again--Lewis and David have a friendship which thrives on maximum antagonism and misunderstanding. Then there is the biggest thing going on in Season 7: Larry decides to put on a Seinfeld reunion.

Now that Season 7 has aired all its episodes I wanted to give my two cents. I enjoyed this season more than the last two (Season 1 was still the best). When Season 6 concluded many of us thought that was going to be the grand finale of the show. With Cheryl finally having enough of Larry's antics, pairing up with the underwear salesman who befriended her in her time of great fear (Larry was too busy with the TIVO guy at the time) and Larry settled in with Loretta and the rest of the Blacks.

Well Larry got the itch to do a type of Seinfeld reunion show to make up for the disappointing ending of the original series. He put together the idea that this could be used as a platform to get Cheryl back. As the series started, we see Larry bored with Loretta and trying to get out of the relationship. Larry learns that Loretta may have cancer prompting Jeff to let him know that he better break up with her before she tells him because "you can't break up with someone with cancer." It then becomes a race with Larry to get to Loretta before her doctor so he can break up with her before the doctor gives her the devastating news. (brilliant writing).

Usual battles with Susie and Marty Funkhouser crop up during the season.

Episodes that followed dealt with Larry dating women in wheelchairs that he has code names for, killing the country club owner's pet swan and a lesson in proper tipping. To top it off Larry tries to get the Seinfeld cast together only because he meets Cheryl on the way to an audition and he feels that if can give her a part in the show he can slowly win her back.

For those of you that have not seen it I do not want to spoil the fun. I will say that the last two episodes dealt with the actual Seinfeld reunion and the show will definately not disappoint like the original series ending from 1999. If you have a chance to watch some of these episodes and you like Seinfeld, I would recommend that you watch them!

I didn't think Larry could top Season 6,"Meet the Blacks," but this year is even better.Curb has shows you never see on TV, having sex with a wheelchair date,avoiding kissing someone you know who just had oral sex with your best friend,or one of your female employee's wearing a cut off shirt with belly fat hagging out.I can't wait to see what happens with the Seinfeld reunion.I hope this show goes on forever.

4.5 stars

In some ways this season continues the slowing down of this entire concept...but when the Seinfeld reunion hits, the old Larry is jumpstarted and there are some truly classic scenes. The best of the best for me, as a huge fan of the finest writing on Seinfeld, mostly courtesy Larry and Jerry, are the scenes of them alone together, especially in the car, when you can see Larry come completely alive, his face glowing with real amusement and humor. That's the very essence of why Seinfeld was one of the ultimate comedy series: those two comic minds at play with each other. These guys are true friends, two peas in a pod, and you can see that with full transparency in their bits together here, the car scene above all; that feels like them at their very happiest. It's perfect karma to have a friend that inspires you like that.

Clearly, these two are the Lennon and McCartney of comedy.

Having said that, Lar reuses many many bits from earlier Curb seasons in season seven, whether as self-conscious homage/parody or sheer ennui is hard to say. Sometimes it works and sometimes it's flat, but then again the improv nature of this show means stale Curb is like fresh most any other comedy show. I did like him as a single guy here; more interaction with more people makes for more new jokes. When Cheryl comes back it's nice but Larry just isn't as funny with her around.

The early episodes here are good but the last few are much better, though all have their moments and even at its worst Curb is twice as funny as most other shows out there today. The Black Swan is a highlight, and it's nice in each episode to see Larry being ever more honest about himself, his tipping habits, his all-too-logical curmudgeonly ways, and even pushing the envelope with the rash thing.
