Yes finally! Larry David at his best
22 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

After being a bit disappointed at the previous episode #1.3 Porno Gil I really hoped this episode would make the show go back to where it was intended to go. And it sure did!

This is the first episode that fully satisfy my expectations for this show.

The episode touches on many nice and interesting social aspects such as:

* Men's desire to act lazy as soon as their wife/girlfriend are gone for a couple of days.

* How women generally cannot understand why some moment in sport games can be of such a high relevance that they are being temporarily neglected.

* The classic "No everything is OK I promise"-theatre to give men bad conscience (which always work by the way ;) )

* How people are being judged by their appearance (Larry being denied entry to the jewellery store because of his clothes and a homeless guy talking to him)

* The stupid, complicated and old-fashioned tipping system that still exist in US restaurants.

* Karma (Larry not getting a favour from the captain after refusing to tip him the day before)

* The dilemma between the desire to help a handicap person (in this case blind) and the need to spend time on oneself.

* The taboo of criticizing a handicapped individual.

* How the satisfaction of giving a gift is destroyed, if the person specifically ask for the gift just before you have planned to give it (Cheryl asking about the bracelet)

I could go on with more specific incidents, but there is really no need to. This episode is great, emphasizing on what Larry David do best, making humour out of everyday behaviour!
