The power of observation of Larry David translates into sometimes caustic accounts of what he perceives as not real. The way he deals with an issue is the basis of what is seen in his award winning series "Curb Your Enthusiasm". Take the show titled "The Palestinian Chicken", as an example for the way his mind works.

There are many ideas running through the episode. The delicious chicken from a Middle Eastern restaurant serves as a metaphor for the way each group not even living in the countries with the tensions bring their own prejudices home, where democracy rules anyone is entitled to make a living and be where they can afford to be.

The other theme is about Larry's observations as how people behave. His bluntness gets him always in trouble, but on the other hand, saying it like he sees him, does not make him, or anyone else a popular person. It is much better not to approach someone with constructive criticism. Most people do not take kindly to them, even if it is for their own good.

A great episode in the 2011 season. Written by Larry David, Alec Berg, David Mandel, Jeff Schaffer, and directed with an excellent timing by Robert Weide, who has been involved with the program. All the regulars are perfect in their roles. Also there are good appearances by the guest stars.
