Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 10

My girlfriend has only seen it patchily so we're watching through a lot of it again at the moment... to be honest it gets samey/predictable if you watch too much of it in one go but when it nails it it's better than anything else.

The thing is, after I watched it I struggled to watch other things cos they seemed so staged in comparison, you can see the way they walk to the front to deliver their lines or whatever, Curb is very naturalistic in comparison - as well as being good. A combination that is hard to pull off.

Seen the first one... very funny at times but I think they made him a bit too aggressive and some of it didn't ring as true as earlier seasons. Was funny that my girlfriend was saying how much Jeff looked like Harvey Weinstein just seconds before they made that joke.

Yeah thats a classic. I think the struggle for me is how old they all are now. In this second episode, it looks like richard lewis’ face might fall off if he talks too much.

IdleRich
Yeah, we kept mentioning that... but I don't have a problem with that. That's life, people get older, most don't change that much, it's still believable that they would carry on in the same way with the inevitable consequences.

Surprising thing is that LD looks the same. Cant believe its 20 years old. I liked the MAGA hat gag from episode 1.

Yeah I enjoyed that whole thing.
The guy who played Funkhauser is dead isn't he? I found it quite poignant when I happened to see the episode recently in which Funkhauser gets divorced, he says he realised that if he didn't do it he would have to spend another twenty years with this boring woman - and I thought "No you wouldn't".

Just watched beep panic. Really brilliant. I love that thing of giving someone something and then they go and do what they wanna do and you get fucked off and think you still own it

Yeah it's alot better than Seinfeld. I can't watch Seinfeld either. This is really funny. Just watched the porno Gil one. First few series are really good. Have a go

Was watching end of series 2 last night, the massage episode. And it's so cringe. There was a specific bit, which I've unfortunately forgotten now, but I was thinking, 'this is cringe'. I think probably how he ends up having to walk around a posh restaurant in a sandwich board saying 'i steal forks from restaurants' cos he stole one, but the whole thing really. Larry David is a master of finding that drama point where he does the slight wrong thing all the time and you cringe for him

my wife actually has to get up and leave the room when those types of scenes happen, so cringy that she literally can't watch it. then she comes back into the room :30 later and asks what happened. a visceral response.

The Weatherman, the Swan, Palestinian Chicken are hard to top, but series 10 has been gold.

Cringe like Fawlty Towers imho.
