Curb Your Enthusiasm season 10 premiere recap: Happy New Year

Larry David returns for a tenth season of HBO’s hilarious comedy, Curb Your Enthusiasm. Show Snob recaps the brand new shows.

Episode one of Curb Your Enthusiasm, season 10 begins with Larry and Leon walking in a shopping district; they discuss their skin colors along with other people’s. Larry breaks a selfie stick blocking his path and hands the phone end back to the very upset owner.

At the gym Larry meets Suzy’s pregnant friend, she wishes him a happy New Year but he bluntly replies that it’s too late. Then Larry asks why Randy needs to inform everyone that her husband is African-American. Subsequently, he suggests that she shouldn’t run in her condition, against a midwife’s advice.

A guy applying vigorous amounts of talcum powder isn’t offended when Larry asks him to be more conservative with the application, as he chokes. An unsurprised Leon understands Larry’s indignation but likes talc, himself, though he says it can be an irritant.

Mocha Joe sells Larry a bad scone, although the former believes it’s fresh. Their scone definitions differ; Leon is disgruntled not to be able to buy a Danish pastry. The table is wobbly, though Joe isn’t bothered by Larry’s fresh complaint.

Unfortunately, both men’s coffees are cold – we know this due to a nose test. Joe tells them it’s hot; consequently, Larry is insulted then he and Leon are asked to leave. His receptionist’s dog bothers Larry; then he’s perceived to be intrusive and inappropriate by using her shirt to clean his glasses.

Richard decides to boycott Mocha Joe’s establishment. Before Jeff is mistaken for Harvey Weinstein; this common error irks them somewhat; but not enough to ignore the h’orderves. Suzy is the subject of Abraham Lincoln jokes for wearing an unfortunate hat, yet she still chastises Larry for being rude to the pregnant exerciser.

Richard complains about the guests, while Larry still craves a ‘pig in a blanket’. A big goodbye is practiced to veil the fact that no small talk is conducted. Cheryl and Larry’s skit goes well; although some, including Suzy, are offended. Ted is advised that landing calls are unnecessary because airplane crashes are big news.

Afterward, Larry accidentally gropes a deranged waitress. With the ‘big goodbye guy’ knowing the ruse, Larry rejects his outlandish job offer but is strong-armed into booking a lunch date.

During their shared drive home, Larry kisses ex-partner Chery, who’s now in a relationship with his friend, Ted. They sleep together; afterward he bemoans her unstable bedside table. She wants to be involved in a morally superior coupling. A proposition which Larry isn’t opposed too; she isn’t sure they’ll rendezvous again.

Leon questions Larry’s late return home, guessing at a fling. Jeff invents a stratagem for Larry to evade his luncheon. While Suzy fishes for information on Larry and Cheryl’s reconciliation; he is coy with her but honest with Jeff, who thinks it’s a great development. Trump supporters are unwelcome by Jeff at their golfing sessions.

Ingeniously, Larry wears a ‘Make America Great Again’ cap to alienate his unwanted meeting; the fellow, Phil, creates an offspring scenario and excuses himself. Discovering that the hat gives him peace from people, Larry wears it at opportune intervals.

Meanwhile, Larry feels disgruntled to see Richard at Mocha Joe’s; however, the latter insists his boycott was only when with Larry. Joe bans Larry from the shop; through the offender promises vengeance.
