Critics Reveal Their Favorite Holiday TV Traditions — IndieWire Survey

Critics Reveal Their Favorite Holiday TV Traditions — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: What are your winter holiday season viewing habits (that are not for work)? Do you have traditional go-to shows or movies? Are you looking forward to anything in particular?

Eric Deggans (@deggans), NPR

As I have written in the past, I’m not the kind of critic who loves holiday specials. Too often, they’re too hokey, too commercial, too weird (yes, Bill Murray, I still don’t get “A Very Murray Christmas”) or, in the case of countless Hallmark Channel movies, way too white. But I do have a few holiday media traditions, starting with my Spotify Holiday Tunes playlist, which gets fired up as

Broad City's Abbi Jacobson on Giving Back During the Holidays and That Infamous Blue Bandage Dress

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: Courtesy of J.Crew In addition to being one half of the dynamic duo from Comedy Central's hit series Broad City, actress, writer, and illustrator Abbi Jacobson also has a heart of gold. The 33-year-old comedian, who got her start as a member of NYC's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, is partnering with J.Crew and the nonprofit One Warm Coat to kick off their national coat drive. Abbi's goal is to encourage J.Crew shoppers to donate their gently used coats to help those in need this holiday season - and it's an initiative she has some experience with. I got the chance to chat with Abbi about her involvement with One Warm Coat and J.Crew's Give and Get Coat event, which aims to warm 1 million people in need with outerwear this year.

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’: Larry David Invented Hot Takes, and He Isn’t Looking For Yours

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’: Larry David Invented Hot Takes, and He Isn’t Looking For Yours
After six years off the air, Larry David and his beloved HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” return to a world that is, well, a lot more like Larry David and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Just as the “Curb” Larry is known for his unsolicited, and often unwelcome opinions, we now live in a social media age awash with too many hot takes.

Can the cringe comedy maintain its gleefully malcontent attitude in a culture where everyone has their own awkward, awful opinion? The TV version of “Larry David” is the king of offensive behavior, typically meted out by his own hand, waged against a world that just doesn’t understand him. “Curb” did it first, and no matter your take, it’s not going to change.

“In terms of the current culture, I can confidently speak for Larry, when I say that he has never once taken the audience’s wants,

Cheryl Hines feels “liberated” by her return to Curb Your Enthusiasm

Curb Your Enthusiasm is back and actress Cheryl Hines feels “liberated” to have returned to the show.

Hines, who plays Larry David’s now ex-wife on the show, has built up a fair bit of history with the fictional Larry over the years, and the show’s return this week showed the two of them still floating in the same circles, despite Cheryl’s continued frustrations with her ex.

She isn’t alone in her anguish of course and the actress revealed that part of her wishes the two could still be together.

“I miss being married to Larry,” Hines revealed to The Hollywood Reporter, “There is a world in which I think we belong together.”

Hines also talked about what it was like returning to Curb – a show where the dialogue is largely improvised – and that the only thing that’s really changed is her.

Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season Nine Ratings

Larry David is finally back on HBO with a ninth season of his Curb Your Enthusiasm TV show.

A semi-autobiographical, scripted HBO comedy, Curb Your Enthusiasm stars co-creator Larry David as a fictionalized version of himself.

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Cast on How the Premiere Kicker Impacts the Season

Curb Your Enthusiasm has returned after six years and, as promised ahead of the HBO comedy's highly anticipated Oct. 1 launch, not much has changed.

Larry David's TV alter ego was still thrusting himself into uncomfortable situations — this time, crossing international borders when a fatwa is issued against him — and catching up with the people in his life, including manager Jeff Greene (Jeff Garlin) and his foulmouthed better half Susie (Susie Essman), favorite freeloader Leon Black (J.B. Smoove) and ex-wife Cheryl David (Cheryl Hines).

But is one of those relationships ready for a change?

Larry David, Accidental Hero: How ‘Curb’ Got An Innocent Man Acquitted from a Murder Charge

Larry David, Accidental Hero: How ‘Curb’ Got An Innocent Man Acquitted from a Murder Charge
Nyu film grad Jacob Lamendola visited the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” trivia page on IMDb on a lazy day in 2012, expecting to find frivolities like how many f-bombs Susie Essman dropped in her angriest episode. Instead, the top entry explained that outtakes from “The Carpool Lane” — the season-four installment in which creator and star Larry David evaded traffic by inviting a prostitute to a Dodger game — exonerated a murder suspect.

Telling that story became “Long Shot,” which is now streaming on Netflix. It took Lamendola five years to make the 40-minute documentary: “I knew that it was worth taking the time to tell it correctly,” he said.

This was the backstory: The victim, 16-year-old Martha Puebla, was shot and killed on her Los Angeles doorstep in May 2003. Three months later, police arrested Juan Catalan, a machinist who resembed a sketch artist’s composite. They believed he had a motive: Days before her death,

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Stars Reveal Whether They Think Larry David Is Up For Another Season

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Stars Reveal Whether They Think Larry David Is Up For Another Season
Leave it to the inimitable Susie Essman to tell it like it is. When asked about the possibility of still more seasons of Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” finally back on the small screen after six years away, Essman kept the door wide open. “I mean, did he come back after six years just to do one more season? Maybe they’ll be 11, 12, 13, who knows,” she told IndieWire.

And she’s got a point. After “Curb” wrapped up its eighth season in the fall of 2011, even David’s own cohorts were concerned that the bold and brash HBO comedy series had come to an end. Essman, who said she was sure the series was going to return (until she very, very much sure that it wasn’t), remembered speaking to David about seven months after the last season finale, set in Paris.

Yes, Somebody Really Asked Susie Essman to Do a Curb Your Enthusiasm Tirade at Her Mother-in-Law's Wake
Susie Essman is known for the expletive-laden Curb Your Enthusiasm tirades she dolls out weekly as Susie Green. So known in fact people often approach her and ask her to cure them out in some very inappropriate settings. "At a wake," Essman said was the most inappropriate place she was asked to scream at somebody. "At my mother-in-law's wake, actually, somebody did that to me. They just wanted me to tell them to go you know what, and I'm just like, 'I'm at my mother-in-law's wake.'"

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’: How Trump’s Election Almost Derailed The Returning Comedy’s First Day of Production
Consider it the greatest indignity of them all for Larry David. After almost six years away, David’s lauded comedy series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” was finally set to kick off production on its long-awaited ninth season last November — the day after the presidential election.

Stars and staffers were expecting to return to set in a celebratory mood. Instead, David and his cast and crew — including long-time on-screen sidekick J.B. Smoove and executive producer Jeff Schaffer — reunited on a day that seemed to make it clear just how much things had changed since the series’ eighth season wrapped in September 2011.

“I was up all night, I couldn’t sleep,” Smoove told IndieWire. “I said, ‘You know what? I’m gonna go to sleep and wake up and this shit is gonna be fine.’ It was the weirdest day. It felt like a weird dream, I was like, ‘Really?’ I couldn’t believe it.
