Seinfeld-esque
11 November 2017 | by edramoscmSee all my reviews

This was an absolutely great episode. It's been very interesting to see people's reactions to this new season of Curb. Apart from the first episode, "Foisted!", and maybe "Thank You for Your Service", this season's been absolutely spot on!

I have to say I absolutely loved Susie in this episode. She's all about nagging (and of course, I'd hate to deal with her irl), and in this episode, it was incredible and even helped Funkhouser (come on, it's horrible to see such a whipped guy). Jeff really screwed up sending such a loving accidental text, which, by the way, was a great idea by LD.

As in the title of this review, I must point that this felt a lot like a Seinfeld episode with swearwords. It wasn't essential to the plot of the arc, it felt "about nothing", was very daily, there weren't any particular stuff, and pretty much everybody sees those things in real life. As much as I love the fatwa plot, this was amazing, amazing. Larry David's been on fire this month!
