Storyline

In the third-season finale, Bobo's Restaurant is two days away from being scheduled to open when Larry discovers that the head chef was hired while pretending to be bald. After firing him, Larry and Jeff scramble to find a replacement. During the process, Larry accidentally injures the most influential food critic in Los Angeles, who is coming to the opening. The food critic recommends a chef from New York, who has an interesting quirk. Meanwhile, Cheryl has a tense confrontation with Susie after she bails on lunch after getting stuck in a car wash.

There are very few spin-off shows that are as acclaimed as the predecessor, but Curb Your Enthusiasm could very well be more so. Seinfeld had some brilliance, this show shows where all of that comes from. Perhaps the best example of this is this episode. Had I seen any film that had such an amazing ending, it would be worth the two hour wait. With previous seasons of CYE, finale's weren't anything special, this episode was nothing short of fantastic. All the harsh judgment, human nature, insane attention to the mundane, and just Larry David's performance, made this episode the best I have seen yet. Much like Seinfeld episodes, it is sometimes necessary to see the preceding seasons, I suggest you do so if not only to fully enjoy this episode.
