Curb Your Enthusiasm: “Seinfeld”

seinfeld-300x200Here is another review brought to you by Frothy

Last episode of Season 7 gives us even more Seinfeld than last week’s “Table Read”; in fact, almost an entire episode plays out while behind the scenes Larry deals with evening the favors owed to studio coffee-jockey Mocha Joe; gets jealous over Jason Alexander’s coaching lessons with Cheryl, and tries to solve the mystery of who left the coffee stain on Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ table.

Though stronger than most episodes this season, it really didn’t seem to aim for much more than last week’s episode—it gave us Seinfeld, but on Curb’s terms—though last week was not only the best episode of the season, it was one of the best episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Basically it gave you all the Seinfeld you could ever want—at least as much as this week’s “Seinfeld”—but went further with bringing back guest stars, addressing “The Michael Richards” thing, and Leon, dammit!

Not only that, but the Mocha Joe subplot, well, that and Cheryl, really most of the Curb moments in this episode didn’t quite click. I can’t think of anything particular, but the “expecting a tip for a favor” seemed like it had been done more than a few times before, as did the stain, as did Cheryl…

Still, it’s not a bad episode, they just did it much better last week.

About Lost in Reviews

Named after the 2003 film Lost in Translation, Lost in Reviews set out to embody the philosophy of this film in a website. Discouraged with the lack of passion in modern day criticism, founders Angela Davis and Ryan Davis created the entertainment review site in 2009. The idea being that, this would be the go-to place for people to find that something that was missing in their life through film or music.

Lost in Reviews is based in Kansas City, Dallas and Chicago. The site covers all aspects of entertainment, but tries to focus more on the easily over-looked. Lost in Reviews is the home to the starving filmmaker and indie bands everywhere. If you’re looking for a voice or trying to share in a vision, then Lost in Reviews just may be the place to help you get there. As the tag line for Lost in Translation says: “Everyone wants to be found.” So find yourself Lost in Reviews.
