    I was frustrated because that was a no-brainer!

    Nobody can accuse Larry of coasting. Curb is still raising the bar.

    So far, 3 episodes in, this season is absolutely brilliant. Curb is one of the VERY few comedies on TV that has maintained quality pretty much throughout all 8 seasons. There might have been a few below par episodes here and there, but on the whole the show has always been pretty consistent. Even without Leon last night's episode was hilarious!

    I'm not Jewish, but even if I was, there's still no question to which side of the ending scene protest I would be going to. Also, I can't say for sure whether curb was the first to come up with the "Social Assassin" concept, but it's brilliant!

    Social Assassin added to the list along with man hands, I'm out, sponge worthy, and low talker.

    I love anything that pokes fun at or makes people uncomfortable about race, religion or politics and this episode hit all of those topics in hilarious ways. Like others, I think his show has been really strong this year.

    Not to overanalyze it or try to make it grander than it is but I think laughing about serious issues can take the edge off of them and maybe get people to talk about issues in a less uptight way. Plus, I'm just an asshole who finds it funny when people are uncomfortable. :)

    Some great stuff last night. "Don't you think the "sorry" window has closed, that's like saying Happy New Year in October." And, Richard Lewis saying "I'm sorry Mr. Lincoln, you schmuck".....I was almost on the floor during the episode, and his sunburn. Good stuff.

    I loved Larry's line about "What's The New York Times headline going to say 'Unemployment Goes Down smiley face?'"

    I loved Larry's rant at Dog..... "YOUR SHARK SHOW SUCKS, A BUNCH OF SHARKS JUST SWIMMING AROUND! THEY'RE NOT EATING ANYONE!!" For some reason that's still making me crack up.

    Larry calling people out on bad parking and a chat & cut are two pages out of my life. We both met with similar results.
