Curb Your Enthusiasm Recap: Season 9, Episode 7, “Namaste”

In last week's Curb Your Enthusiasm, Larry David briefly played the people's hero, standing up to self-righteous hostesses and ill-mannered travelers. In “Namaste,” he proudly reemerges as a shameless asshole and nuisance, which leads to some of the best—and worst—tussles of the season so far.

T.V. on TV: <em>Gilmore Girls</em>

Television gets a lot of things wrong in the name of entertaining us. And, to be honest, in most cases, that’s a good thing. I’d rather watch the CSI team solve a case than turn their findings over to other officers who then go to arrest the perpetrators. And I’d rather watch the small town antics of Gilmore Girls than the umpteenth spin on Sinclair Lewis’ Main Street. Most TV small towns fall into one of two categories—hyper-romanticized or deeply, deeply confining. If the actual reality of a small town (expressed best in NBC’s Friday Night Lights) falls somewhere in the middle and is nowhere near that interesting, it’s perhaps more fun to live in a hyper-romanticized little burg like Stars Hollow, the home of Lorelei (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) Gilmore.
