    I swear that this season of Curb has been about as good as the show ever was. Last season was such a disappointment to me, but this one has been on a high note each week.

    Larry laughing with Jeff at the freak book was rude, yet funny. Adding the 's-it storm' of the limo driver being plastered just took it all to the next level.

    again more of Larry just being a jackass for the sake of being a jackass. The bit in the limo w/ McEnroe was funny but otherwise .... nope.

    Atlanta,...
    I didn't think this episode was good either. Blech. I laughed a little, but no real standout moments for me.

    I think the show is funnier when Larry is just being himself, and ends up looking like an ass. It really seems that in this episode, he was trying to be an ass, and that's just not very funny for me.

    I loved McEnroe getting angry with Larry, but always giving in with an "alright, fine."

    I'd give this one a "B". Larry and McEnroe in a shouting contest was fun. But I'd agree with others that it's funnier when things blow up due to Larry's quirkiness rather than him being a jackass. I like being on his side, like the sample lady or the sweaty $50 bill. But his bits with the freak book made him look more like a jerk who'd been drinking too much.

    He is a jackass, and he knows it but don't care most of the time.

    Going back a few episodes, but am I the only one who is still perplexed by who exactly made the teddy bear stain? That has been gnawing at me for weeks... that just seemed to be completely out of place for any character.

    I have been wondering that myself. I hate to say it, but my top candidate is Jeff. He's already shown that he has an inappropriate streak when it comes to that and he certainly had the most opportunity of any character.

    Second top candidate is Larry. Then maybe Jeff and Susie's dog.

    If Jeff is doing that on his kid's bed then I don't care to ever see his character again. The ONLY character who could do it and it would be funny is Darryl.

    Well, it didn't necessarily occur on the kid's bed ... just on the kid's bear. Not that that's any better :)

    I don't see how Darryl coulda got there and done it. Maybe it was Rick Leftowitz (Rob Corddry's character)!
