If it's any consolation, I hear his wife hasn't aged much at all!

Sex on the floor isn't funny, sometimes it's a necessity.

Then I went back and watched "Palestinian Chicken". Aside from reminding me of the great Zankou Chicken it's actually funny. It allows situations to develop instead of forcing them. Curb was a great series and it didn't go out on the low of Seinfeld but it didn't go out on a high either.
Leon has never been funny!? He's been freaking hilarious 99% of the time!

Leon needs a spinoff.

I came in here to post exactly that. Though it would be tough not having Larry there to bounce stuff off of because their back and forths with them trying not to break cracks me up as much as the jokes themselves.

"Titty Taffy" had me laugh out loud pretty hard.

I thought it was a great finale for a great show.

Bruce added “floor fucking” into the legendary E-Street band intro.

I really like Curb for the interaction between the people over mundane everyday circumstances - the politics stuff is getting over done (SNL, every late night host, etc).. the jokes are not original.

In addition, Seinfeld and this show don't really work when they are not in their 'home town.' ( I didn't like when the whole group has to find some excuse to travel to Georgia or some other state.) and

I really don't hope that this ends with Larry going to jail at the end to join Jerry, George, Kramer, Elaine in jail

But yeah, Larry going to prison at the end of the show would be lame.
I just finished watching the final episode over the weekend and have mixed reviews. It was painful to watch the same ending as Seinfeld play out again as I predicted.

However, I guess it was a novel idea to use this as a way to rewrite the ending with a mistrial - and have Jerry and Larry say... this is how Seinfeld should have ended.

This season was not that good - I am not a fan of Covid jokes, bashing right wing politics, and the overall SNL playbook. However Leon was very funny - but he needs a straight man for him to play off of
