Curb Your Enthusiasm
If Curb's Episode 5 "Interior Decorator" had to be summed up in 5 words it'd be "Larry is a cheap bastard." In this episode we learn that a fool and his money are soon parted, that you can have star power without showing the star and that power couples are the gatekeepers. What am I talking about? Read on and all will be clear...
I have friends, you have friends, congratulations. But what good are they if you can't access them like an ATM?

Curb Your Enthusiasm
Larry's lessons learned this episode: how to win back his wife's affection with flowers and shiny baubles; how not to appear homeless; why you should always tip your captain; and what's the 'duty to help' obligation for the blind. It's all in Curb's "The Bracelet."
Larry, channeling his inner teenager, is watching football while talking on the phone. Cheryl walks in the door, just getting home from visiting her mom in Tallahassee. Larry jumps up to greet her and she can't help but notice ...

TV Guide Network will premiere a new Michael Jackson documentary, Gone Too Soon, on June 25 to mark the one-year anniversary of his death.
The two-hour special, which will air on the same day in more than 50 countries, comes from author and filmmaker Ian Halperin, who penned the 2009 New York Times best-selling book Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson. Culled from more than 300 hours of footage ...
Randy Cohen feels unbelievably lucky to have become one of the go-to guys the media calls in to interpret some of life's stickier situations for the morally confused public. Every Sunday for the last decade he's been enlightening readers on the unwritten rules of society — if it's okay to bring your own food into the movies or illegally download a book you've already purchased — in a column in The York Times Magazine called "The Ethicist." Though often funny, his Q and A's are basically inverted, print versions of Larry David's freewheeling TV show about how to get through the day without someone punching you in the face. And so, naturally, Cohen was at the top of the list of people invited in to debate and kibbitz about the show's moral universe for the short but sweet Curb: The Discussion panels that follow Curb Your Enthusiasm's second life in syndication.
If the body is a temple, than some temples are out of shape and hairy. Do women secretly find the male body offensive?
In Episode 3 entitled "Porno Gil," Hell hath no fury like a loose golf ball scorned; Larry learns a new use for hot sauce and he takes a 'porn bullet' for a friend.
The episode starts off like a neurotic Western:
The sun blazes high in the sky over Larry at the driving range. A man in a brimmed hat walks up with a bucket of balls to a neighboring tee. One falls off and rolls near Larry. Larry eyes him up and down, lingering at the man's straw hat and specifically the bolo string that keeps it roped to his chin, and goes back to hitting balls.
Later, Larry ...
One of the happiest results of the marriage of Curb Your Enthusiasm and basic cable, apart from being able to watch with small children and clergy around, is the added bonus of a quick and entertaining post show wrap up. A funny, warm and decidedly un-Susie Greene-like Susie Essman leads a lively discussion about whatever trouble Larry got into this week with a mix and match panel of famous people. ...
