Quote from: dr beat on October 27, 2021, 10:24:03 PMI thought the ending had a slightly more reflective feel. I was expecting something like one of them to knock their wine over someone in the seats below, but it was actually quite chilled in how they were just quietly taking in the music together.
Quote from: Noodle Lizard on October 27, 2021, 10:47:41 PMIt felt more like "look at me an Albert Brooks sitting in fancy seats watching the new Dudamel that's just shown up, playing my theme tune!" But I never assume the best.
Quote from: Twonty Gostelow on October 28, 2021, 10:51:47 AMYes, a good episode, nothing too cartoonish, not even Larry's walk into the glass door, which was really well-timed and not telegraphed.
Quote from: EOLAN on October 28, 2021, 01:47:42 PMBest moment by far. I also love when things get cartoonish once it is well executed and enhances the laughs in the moment.
Quote from: Replies From View on October 28, 2021, 01:12:49 PMLittle off-topic perhaps, but I've never seen Richard Lewis in anything other than Curb, and was wondering what else you would recommend that he's been in.
Quote from: dr beat on October 27, 2021, 09:56:37 PMIt felt this time that they might address Larry's mortality more directly in this season rather than carry on as if he's 20/30 years younger, which is one criticism I heard about S10.
Quote from: Noodle Lizard on October 27, 2021, 10:17:44 PMThat's a very good point. He's nearly as old as Bob Einstein was when he died (and the absence of Richard Lewis in this episode did make me wonder ...), but as a character Larry's really not evolved much, if at all, over 20 years and 10 seasons. This episode made it clear we can expect more of the same (i.e. minor couch spill confrontations), but it'd be nice to see something a little more reflective. Maybe it's coming, maybe it's not. I'm actually fine with either decision, since it'd be a huge risk to try and tackle anything a bit more lofty at this point, and honestly it's not what anyone watches Curb for.
Quote from: the science eel on November 01, 2021, 09:39:30 PMThat was the best one I've seen in a while. Lots of petty aggravations, tense altercations, the stuff of great Curb. I thought LD was on excellent form. Mucho Jeff, too. Fabulous.
Quotebothered by Larry's character being *this* comfortable w/ post pandemic life. we're expected to believe he'd be out there at his age maskless indoors with others? I don't think so. Everything we know about this guy is he hates germs & judges everyone. Suddenly he's cool with it?
Quote from: Dusty Substance on November 02, 2021, 07:36:42 PMThey've kind of got a point. The pandemic was touched upon in last week's episode with the hand sanitizer thing, but it's strange to see Larry being so blasé.
Quote from: Dusty Substance on November 02, 2021, 07:36:42 PMBit weird to hear to word "abortion" said aloud so many times in an American sitcom.
Quote from: Mobius on November 02, 2021, 10:55:51 PMThat's true, but on the other hand do you want to hear about COVID all the time? And I just can't see them masking characters up.
Quote from: Replies From View on November 03, 2021, 05:15:50 PMIt is strange though, this alternate post-COVID universe they inhabit. I find it kind of fascinating. I wonder if it'll end up even more dated in its optimism than if they'd accepted COVID as a part of its fabric.
Quote from: Noodle Lizard on November 03, 2021, 05:26:07 PMIt was a "fully-vaccinated" premiere, but she's married to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (who I'm assuming wasn't invited).
Quote from: Replies From View on November 03, 2021, 05:33:51 PMWhy? Is he a menace at premieres?
