“Believe me, I’m as upset about this as you are,” Larry David said today about the latest renewal of “Curb Your Enthusiasm’ by HBO. “One day I can only hope that HBO will come to their senses and grant me the cancellation I so richly deserve.”
“Curb” will now add an 11th season, after starting in 2000. That’s twenty years, folks.
This past season, which will reap Emmy nominations for Best Comedy, Actor, Supporting Actor, Guest Actor and so on, was just as hilarious and well written as all the others. The first episode, in which Larry brandishes a MAGA hit to discourage new friends, was superb. But the whole “Larry’s Latte” story line was beautifully constructed. Hats off to everyone.
The show stars Susie Essman, Jeff Garlin, Cheryl Hines, Richard Lewis, J.B. Smoove, and Ted Danson. This season, Jon Hamm did serious damage and guaranteed himself a Guest Emmy nomination as a Larry David wannabe. Megan Ferguson deserves some acclaim for playing Larry’s put upon secretary, Alice.
What’s next? Can you imagine the Larry character and his friends wearing masks? Pandemic problems? Dealing with racism? (They’ve done it a lot, all of it very un-PC.) I can’t wait. In the meantime, I feel like opening my own spite store!
