That was a wonderful episode. Stealing the Holocaust shoes and talking the Mormon husband into taking on a girlfriend were highlights for me.

Larry yelling “It was a perfect call!” as Vindman was leaving

I burst out laughing when I saw the pile of shoes; I knew what was coming

That was fantastic. Could be a top 3 "Curb" of all-time. I laughed out loud so many times. The Oscar music play off. Larry now a "roper". The hugging. Susie talking about Leon jizzing on her towels. Larry dancing out of the museum. This season sure started off rough. But the last 4 episodes more than made up for it.

It was really shaping up to be a great finale right up to stealing the shoes (and the Susie comment about Leon desecrating her monogrammed towels) but the last 15 minutes were awful by Curb standards. What a shame.

Thought that the finale was firing on all cylinders. They really put that guest cameo to good use with A. Vindman. Hoping this isn't the end of the show and he comes back again with a season 12. While I thougth S11 was not as strong as S10, the finale redeemed it quite a bit for me.

Good episode! Leon kills it, every time. I really thought he'd get stale, but he's so well written/improvised, it just works.

I like the Mary Ferguson from this episode. Something about her was very appealing, though the outcome was a bit too telegraphed.

The play-off music was a great bit.

The scene with the Mormon expressing how proud he was over his new girlfriend was pretty funny.

My only nitpick is that the entire season Leon needs someone named Mary Ferguson to use his airplane ticket, but then Alex Vindman can get on the plane with a ticket for Leon Black?

My take was that Mary stole Leon's passport so that he couldn't get on the flight, but that Vindman would have just bought his own ticket to go with her. Nice touch that in Larry's world even hero Vindman would be up to some shenanigans.

I thought the episode was very funny and very good about bringing the stories together. I loved that Larry didn't just steal the Holocaust shoes, but danced away in them!

My only complaint about it as the season finale was that the fate of Young Larry was left ambiguous. Although I guess we can just assume that if they couldn't get rid of the shitty actress, they show just imploded.

Liked the episode except for the Vindman stuff which was really overdone. And before anyone thinks this is a political thing, itís not. I loved the MAGA hat bit from last season. THAT was well done. The Vindman stuff was justÖugh.

This season sucked for the most part largely due to a flimsy premise with the 5 foot fence. Everything bad derived from that. The best things were the smaller moments and incidental stuff.

Agree that the 5 foot fence and the Maria Sophia stuff really dragged the season down. He was never looking at jail time and money is no object to him. Much like the Fatwah in Season 9, the overriding story didn't work at all.

This is one of my favorite all-time shows and I love Larry David, but certainly wasnít the best season, and wasnít a huge fan of the Maria Sophia stuff.

Unless Iím just not remembering correctly, hasnít it only been the last 3-4 seasons thatís thereís been a underlying storyline (Maria Sophia, Fatwa, etc)? I feel like the show was better off when each episode was just a one off, and occasionally they would revisit themes or characters throughout the season.

Every season but the first has had an overall plot arch to it:

2: Pitching a show to various networks
3: Opening a restaurant
4: The Producers play
5: Richard Lewis kidney/Larry's biological parents
6: The Blacks/Leon
7: Seinfeld Reunion
8: NYC/Michael J. Fox
9: Fatwa
10: Sexual Harassment/Coffee Shop

David and Lewis are both 74 right now. I don't know if my stomach can take any more storylines that involve their sex lives.

I put off watching season eleven when it was airing and then kind of forgot about it so I still havenít watched it. One of these days.

Agreed. I can usually depend on the show to give me at least a handful of laugh out loud moments, but I just found myself bored with S11.

I liked it more than the Jihad season (S9?). That one was awful.

I must be the only one here who thinks the Leon character doesn't add much to the show. Why is he still living with Larry after all these years? That makes no sense, especially given Larry's neuroses and selfishness. And Leon's humour consists of fitting as many "motherfucker"s and "motherfuckin'"s into a sentence and scene as he can. Not funny.

In any case, my mother and I enjoyed this season as much as any of the others, and look forward to more.

I havenít disliked any of the seasons so far. I may agree that the ninth was the weakest one though. It was just hit and miss that year.

Typical answer probably but I liked the Seinfeld reunion episode season (season seven) best. Just fun seeing the casts of both shows together.

I like season four with Larry cast in the broadway version of The Producers too.

That is maybe my favorite season. So many great episodes.

Though Season 3 with the restaurant is great as well. I think ĎChetís Shirtí from that season is one of my all time favorite episodes.
