Not a good season finale, unfortunately. I hoped for a better payoff with the whole “Fatwa!” storyline besides that. Didn’t get what that bizarre swinger couple was about beyond the poor “thank yous” or frankly with Lin-Manuel Miranda this time around in a lesser and less likable performance than in last episode. The wedding scenes were cool, and Casey Wilson was a breath of fresh air. Really liked her standing in for Larry in the wedding toast lol. The sign language lady gag felt beneath the show to me, but Susie throwing her out was great. I would have given Nick Offerman sooooo much more to do here as well, which he sadly didn’t have. I don’t think this diminished too much of what great returning season this. I think its Emmy reception will be excellent and “fingers crossed” gets numerous acting nods beyond David (who is pretty much taking over Tambor’s place now). I’m very glad it returned and will be sad to see it go.December 5, 2017 at 12:57 pm #1202430213
Interesting enough, I actually really liked the last episode. It wasn’t as funny as others, but its narrative was costantly engaging. I never fel bored or uninterested!
I am very satisfied with this season. While there hasn’t been a single super memorable episode, every one was never less than good – most were also very good and some simply great. Larry David needs to get an Emmy as soon as possible!December 5, 2017 at 3:27 pm #1202430378
I enjoyed the season and it was good. Not the best of Larry David, but still good. I wasn’t expecting it to be big at the Emmys before it aired, so I don’t mind if it doesn’t win anything. For now, I’m predicting Series, Actor + Writing and/or Directing for nominations.December 6, 2017 at 12:35 am #1202430690
The finale made up for the less than lukewarm season. Miranda is beautiful to look at.December 14, 2017 at 10:09 am #1202440364
Curb will return for a Season 10 with production kicking off in just a few months!

Amazing news!December 14, 2017 at 8:50 pm #1202440694
This was a great and hilarious season. I was dreading the wait until “a next season that who knows when will happen”….oh wait…now we get this confirmation right away. Excellent news.January 12, 2018 at 1:58 pm #1202465890
Finally caught up on this season. I binged watched it over the holidays. I really enjoyed Bryan Cranston as the therapist and F. Murray Abraham getting called out for outfit tracking!
Did anyone else catch that Justin Hurwitz, Oscar-winning composer of La La Land, was a writer this season?January 13, 2018 at 3:24 am #1202466200
Is there a funnier show eligible for the Emmys this year? I don’t think so.Riley (the normal one, not the one who won the predictions contest)ParticipantMay 19, 2018 at 12:24 am #1202549886
HBO has included the first three episodes of the season in their DVD box. Voters are asked to consider the writing staff and only one director, which is curious because the show has previously been ineligible for writing and submitted multiple directors. Have things changed or is this not to be trusted?

Weird that they didn’t submit Robert B. Weide, a five-time nominee for the show who won once. About the writing submission, maybe Chris could tell us more?
