Speaking of C.Y.E., is it officially ended? I saw David's 60 Minutes interview, and Charlie Rose's remarks seemed to intimate that C.Y.E. were a thing of the past.

I think he has an open invite from HBO to do another season if he wants to.

I've heard good things about it, but they're all fans of David and CYE.

I've also heard bad things about it, but those people HATE David and CYE.

It's gotten OK reviews in The Times. Friends who saw it were more excited about seeing LD live than about the quality of the show.

Does it involve a character having the opportunity to be rich but he blows it and he then spends the rest of the play seeking revenge in the most insane and unrealistic ways possible? Because for whatever reason Larry David seems to LOVE that plotline (Sour Grapes, Envy, Clear History.)

I'd love to see it but doubt I'll get a chance to. Wish he'd bring back Curb Your Enthusiasm.

David is actually done in a couple weeks and then Jason Alexander is taking over for him for a limited time and then i think the show is done. too bad bc it is irreverant and totally fun.
