Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
When he isn't working on the script with Jerry, Larry hangs out with Leon (J.B. Smoove), tries to find a way to break up with Loretta (Vivica A. Fox), and discovers the benefits of dating a "wheelie" (in David's scenes with Seinfeld, the two often appear on the verge of cracking up). Of course, it wouldn't be Curb if Larry didn't step into a few minefields along the way, including an awkward plumbing problem, an inappropriately bare midriff (not his), a 9-year-old texting buddy (talk about inappropriate!), a dessert war with Ted Danson, a misunderstanding with Mocha Joe, and in a nod to the musical West Side Story, a real-life Officer Krupke. If some episodes are funnier than others--"The Black Swan" features one death too many--Curb comes through in the finale, in which Larry's jealousy of Jason's relationship which Cheryl gets out of hand. A fine addition to the L.D. canon, the season also offers the immortal line, "I'm Larry David, and I happen to enjoy wearing women's panties." --Kathleen C. Fennessy

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.Read more ›
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!
Larry might be awkward, annoying and far from subtle, but he's just so funny and that's what makes this show worth watching. Larry together with a tight but twisted plot, great ad-lib and perfect acting make this show one of the best on television.
Seeing Larry get him self into lots of strange situations makes us empathize with him because we can imagine our self's getting into the same situations. A lot of the things he does are perfectly normal and some of them are not and a lot of the things he does are perfectly rational and other are not, either way he says and does the things a lot of us would be thinking in the same situations.
The supporting cast are truly amazing and their ability to ad-lib the entire show is truly wonderful and makes it seem even more realistic.
I'm aware that a lot of people maybe "don't get" this show. But I will say the same thing about this show as I did about The Office (the British version of course) - uncomfortable comedy can sometimes be the best and the most realistic. If you think about those times in real life when funny things happen and you can't laugh either because it's at the wrong moment or around the wrong people. Well watching this show you can laugh at those moments because it's Larry who's experiencing them.
