The contrast between Funkhauser and Leon made that scene.

But it was so contrived and stupid. No girl on earth would tell someone like Larry that. You'd just say you needed to use the bathroom or call your mom. Clearly this idea sprang from someone older joking about how complicated tampons seem to young girls or Larry got bored in the bathroom one day and read the elaborate instructions and thought it would make a funny bit, but it lack verisimilitude. Unless she enjoyed a much warmer and closer relationship with Larry there's no fucking way she'd tell him she was on her period.


I agree, but I think the whole show is based around these kinds of unlikely exchanges.

I do like Seinfeld but somehow it works in ways that CYE doesn't. The George character is pretty pathetic but the show doesn't focus on him as much as CYE focuses on Larry. There's some good physical comedy in Seinfeld too that breaks up the self-loathing, pathetic parts.

Last night's was better - a handful of real belly laughs. I don't think he can push his luck any further with the absurdity of the whole thing. None of these things would ever happen to anyone ever!

Over the last few series there has hardly been a believeable situation, has there? Its still very, very funny. I pulled my t-shirt over my face when Larry was invited to talk at the women's shelter.

Last night's was the best of the season so far, and one of the best I've ever seen. Lots of confrontations, some fantastic lines, and a killer punchline.

May it run and run.

"Palestinian Chicken" had me absolutely falling off the couch last night. One of the most utterly WRONG things I've ever seen. Definitely a needed boost from the slow season opener. Salon's reviewer suggested they knew #1 was a weak episode but was still necessary to lay the foundation for this season's recurring plots.

Fourth best ever, for what it's worth.

When I play the file with windows media I only get the audio track and no video. I always have problems with this. I still can't even figure out how to burn a dvd :?

Try Winamp rather than Windows Media Player, always works with me.

Alternatively, does your dvd player have a USB port? I copy the downloaded files onto my external hard drive and watch on my tv.

I usually just burn a data DVD & watch it in the DVD player. The ones made in the last 5 years or so have a computer interface that will play anything. Just look at the downloaded file & make sure you don't need to unzip it first.

Best season yet, that last one. For me, anyway.

The episodes with the one-armed man, and the Palestinian chicken one, were absolutely wonderful.

The scene with Susie and the broken car seat was nice.
