Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 6 reviewed, season 7 a 50-50 chance?
I read two new interesting articles on the upcoming season 6 of Curb today. Brian Lowry from Variety had this to say about what we can expect come September 9th:
After what was widely (and rightly) dismissed as a disappointing season, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” roars back with a terrific trio of half-hours to open year six, so dense and intricate in weaving together Larry David’s twisted view of humanity it’s remarkable how neatly the episodes tie together their loose ends. Widely imitated but seldom equaled in the art-imitating-celebrity-life genre, this HBO series has experienced missteps but remains the unrivaled standard-bearer in behind-the-ivied-gates glimpses of Hollywood self-obsession.
What can we expect from episode 1?
Larry will be welcoming an African-American family displaced due to “Hurricane Edna” into his house. Larry also finds a way to miss social functions. I won’t give it away but you can read it in the article.
Brian also rates the second and third episodes highly which include: “vital new insights on the etiquette of masturbation and dry cleaning; a surprisingly good guest shot by California Sen. Barbara Boxer; discussion of how many tastes is too many at the ice-cream counter; and Larry’s growing jealousy toward the saintly (Ted) Danson”.
An article on USA Today doesn’t say much more about what we can expect in season 6, but does give us hope for more Curb in the future. When asked about the possibility of a seventh season he replied the chances were now at “50-50. If I go back to Los Angeles with 10 good ideas, that will tip the balance.”
