Every time I think that Curb Your Enthusiasm might be done for good, Larry David shines his glorious light on the world once again, and with next year marking the 20th anniversary of the show's premiere, it's only fitting that he should return for a tenth season. After season five, I thought I was done with the show, as that lackluster season featured a recurring plot about Richard Lewis needing one of Larry's kidneys and him dying on the operating table. He was revived at the last minute, and I said, "I'm done" but then something magical happened in season six.
That's when J.B. Smoove joined the cast as Leon, who is hands down the greatest character in the show's history—with Krazee Eyez Killa running a close second as the best one-off character. Larry's interaction with Leon gave new life to the show, not to mention the Seinfeld reunion in season seven being the closest we'll get to an actual Seinfeld reunion. Point being, the show has managed to maintain its relevancy and longevity long past when most people thought it would or even could.
So clear your calendars for January 19, when the tenth season of Curb debuts. Word on the street is that it's pretty, pretty, pretty good.
