So all in all, it's far from the best stuff of Curb, but it fit right in with the general quality of the show. So that's good!
Feel like it makes some stuff more awkward in a bad way though. The scene with Betty's fiance screaming at Larry as he walked in their house just seemed off. Like, the show has always been ridiculous and insane, but this scene just felt unconvincing. It might be that she just gave a bad performance though.
Thought it was a great return. The run-time of 36 minutes felt good and when it ended I realized - there can never be too much Curb! Bring on the longer episodes!
My wife made the same comment. I hope you're right because unrelateble asshole Larry can become a bummer to watch.
Thought the episode was great. I just hope the rest of the episodes don't play too much into Larry being an asshole for the sake of being an asshole. Curb is at its best when the audience knows Larry is technically in the right but is placed in to an unfortunate situation.
that said the text he sent Richard fucking killed me and its great having this show back
$150 for a haircut is robbery, especially for Larry's minimal hair.
Her name is Nasim Pedrad. From SNL.
Line of the episode: "I don't live in a Cuban dance hall"
Does anyone know the name of the actress who played the "bride" who stormed out?
I recognize her face, I know I've seen her somewhere, but IMDB doesn't have extended credits yet.
The change in filming was weird. Not a big deal.
Larry's Type + Distance convo killed me.
This is what I'm hoping for as well. They're just finding their footing
I didn't find the premiere particularly funny but I have faith that the rest of the series will be funnier as the cast gets back into the rhythm of it.
Still, the structure was classic Curb and it is great to have a new season all the same.
