Last night on Curb Your Enthusiasm, we got to catch up with the Seinfeld gang 11 years after they were rotting in prison and wow, it was so good to see them.
In the show-within-a-show plot, Larry David staged a Seinfeld reunion only because he wanted to win back his ex-wife Cheryl by giving her a part in the show. (Got that?) The Curb plot, which unfolded as rehearsals for this reunion show, was classical twisty Seinfeld: Elaine had a baby courtesy of Jerry’s donated sperm. George got rich inventing an iToilet app for the iPhone, but lost all his money to Bernie Madoff. To add insult to injury, George’s ex-wife, Amanda (played by Cheryl Hines), still had her hefty divorce settlement, so naturally he wants to win her back. Oh, and Newman was there, too (still a postman). So was George’s mom (still hysterically shrill). Next week’s Curb finale promises even more details on the characters. Did you watch Curb last night? Are you more satisfied with this ending than the old series finale? –Henry Goldblatt
