Curb Your Enthusiasm question

Ok I picked up Season One last week and enjoyed it. However it almost seems as though a few of the episodes aren't in order. One example that I remember is on one episode where they are at the jewelers' a homeless guy thanks him for some special food he gave him before. Then a few episodes later is a scene in which Larry gives him that food. Anyone know if this is the way the order was supposed to go (I never got to see season one on TV)?

I remember always being puzzled about the scene you refer to, so I'm pretty sure it's always been like that.

The homeless guy didn't thank him on that episode. Larry offered him a tuna sandwich or something and he turned him down.

But what he gave him in the later episode was specifically refered to in that scene.

Yes, I believe the homeless man thanks him for some Chichen L'Orange that Larry gives him an episode or two later.

I did a search for Curb Your Enthusiasm and this was the closest thread I could find to my question, so I'm just going to ask it here.

On the second disc, they have the hour long comedy special also entitled Curb Your Enthusiasm. This has to be one of the most pixelated things I've ever seen. Is it meant to look like that, or is my DVD defective? It's not pixelated during the interview segments, only during the "making the pitch" segments.

So, my question is, is this due to a) the format they shot it on, b) bad authoring, or, c) my disc being bad?

Right, in episode 7 Larry takes back the food that the caterer stole from his house the night before, and as he's walking on the street he gives the three trays to a homeless man.

In Episode 4, the homeless guy thanks him for the food and asks him for money while Larry attempts to go into the jewelers to buy his wife the bracelet.

Its definitely out of sync.

Looks alright as far as I can see.

It's not Pixelated, but it definitley is pretty grainy. That's because it's a documentary that Larry had shot so it was most likley done with a home video camera. Does it really need great quality anyways? Possibly it's help to distinguish it from the episodes.

I watched through the whole thing last night, and it's only in the first scene. Definite pixelation all over the place. I guess, since it's only the very first scene, I can live with it. The grain I don't mind, that's just part of the package. But the pixelation makes me think something is up.
