“Curb Your Enthusiasm” returned Sunday night on HBO after an elongated six-year hiatus, and based on the reactions from our feisty forum posters, the Season 9 premiere was pretty, pretty, pretty good. With the exception of our reader Sasha, who writes, “It’s not funny at all. I was so f***ing bored and couldn’t wait till it was over,” everyone else is raving about the new episode, titled “Foisted.”
In the season premiere, Larry David‘s cantankerous character gets involved in several awkward situations, including ruining a lesbian wedding, trying to get rid of a terrible assistant and being hit with a fatwa.

Do you think “Curb Your Enthusiasm” will be a big player at the upcoming 2018 Golden Globes? Don’t forget, the show won the Globe for Best Comedy Series in 2003 and David was nominated thrice as Best Comedy Actor (2003, 2005, 2006) for playing a fictionalized version of himself. With increased buzz following the show’s elongated absence, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it recognized again.
