A Little Awkward Even For Curb

SPOILERS. Curb Your Enthusiasm has always thrived on the awkward moments. Larry does things he really shouldn't do because he (like his alter ego, George Costanza) follows his own set of rules. At times, his rules make more sense than the rules most people follow, but it doesn't lessen the uncomfortableness of certain scenes.

This week, however, Larry's television wife, Cheryl, left him, essentially because he hung up on her when she was afraid her flight was going to crash while the TiVO guy was at their house. There were some hysterical moments (Larry's trying to woo her back by explaining he always carries mints, tissues, and pens, and the behavior of Super Dave aka Funkhauser), but as I watched the episode, there remained the awkwardness of knowing that Larry and his real wife, Laurie, had split up over the summer. How much reality inspired this, I don't know, but it definitely made the episode stranger than most. What happens over the final three episodes remains to be seen, and of course, I laughed a lot on Sunday night, but this is going to be tough to watch. (Of course, few shows other than Curb would even address this.)

I read on Sepinwall that this was filmed before David and his wife split. (Or at least before it was announced.) Which makes it even weirder! Like he got the idea from his TV show.

Larry's date with Lucy Lawless was pretty darned funny, though.
