Best and funniest episode this season. Jon Hamm was awesome. He had every Larry mannerism and he was hysterical.

This season has been Larry to the nth degree. Why hold back.

Larry has changed over time. He's a happier guy in real life and he has years behind him from divorce.

He doesn't care what others think about him and everything from Seinfeld to Curb is about what's going on in his real life.

Time to be prepared. 100% percent or bust.

I think he uses the same jokes or comic concepts as Seinfeld. In fact he quoted Kramer in this episode.

In this episode, the "appetizer allocation" was exactly something that might have come out of Seinfeld.

So is the spite store and then this whole thing about whether he should get the profits on the home he bought for what's her name.


But that's okay, he's stealing from himself.

Actually, "Seinfeld" (and all the characters in it) were exactly BECAUSE it was coming from the mind of Larry David... in the first seven years of the show. George Costanza IS Larry David, in every one of his ridiculous quirks and observations and perspectives and rules. Jerry Seinfeld and the whole ensemble (especially Elaine) were a wonderful comedic ensemble that worked fabulously to act out Larry's bizarre thoughts, but in retrospect the ideas in the show WERE CLEARLY FROM LARRY DAVID'S COMEDIC MIND. As we now see so obviously in "Curb".

In my own opinion the "Seinfeld" show changed dramatically when Larry departed, with the comedy becoming less organically genuine and just naturally hilarious (like "Curb"), and much more forced. Different writing and comedy style without Larry David present, that is very apparent when you've seen all the episodes several times as many of us have. The early ones are really priceless and hold up flawlessly. Pretty, pretty, pretty good. The later ones... mmmm, not so much.

I really love Susie and Larry's ongoing repartee laced with constant obscenities and Yiddish insulting references. She's fabulous, and the two of them obviously love playing this out.

Social distancing with a hot cup of spite coffee. It's all in the beans.

Although she claims she isn't, Susie is absolutely a mieskeit, and her wardrobe doesn't help matters either.

Yeah but Susie Essman kills every scene that she's in. It was hilarious when she cancelled her trip because Jeff (alias Fat F*%k) couldn't conceal his joy over her leaving. Just Classic Curb.

Good season finale, though I do think the show missed an opportunity to have a member of the Big Johnson community get injured trying to use Larry's ridiculous pee cube.

I laughed out loud at the newly Zen Sean Penn yelling at the bird. Also at the spite house.

Yeah, that was great. Penn has a reputation for having no sense of humor about anything, least of all himself. Very unexpected that he'd agree to a cameo on this show.

That would have been way too low hanging for Larry.

The bolted down tables and purell on every table as well as LD driving burning down both restaurants was hilarious.
