The 12th season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, created and starring Larry David, is set to premiere on HBO Max on February 4. This will be the final season of the series, which features David playing a version of himself and has become a classic of North American television. Since its premiere in 2000, the show has delivered unforgettable episodes with sharp humor rooted in reality.
With so many memorable episodes to choose from, fans may find it difficult to pick a favorite. However, the show’s creator has revealed his top choice. In an interview with Variety, David shared that his favorite episode is “Palestinian Chicken,” which is the third episode of season 8 and was released in July 2011. The episode delves into the conflict between Israel and Palestine, prompting speculation about David’s ideological stance on the issue.
Despite being asked about his favorite episode, David did not provide a specific reason for his choice. The synopsis for “Palestinian Chicken” describes the episode as follows: “Larry plays the ultimate ‘social killer’ at a dinner party, on the golf course, and at a Palestinian restaurant with phenomenal chicken.” This episode showcases the series’ trademark political incorrectness and provocative content, highlighting the relevance of episodes released decades ago.
In “Palestinian Chicken,” characters Marty (Bob Einstein) and Susie (Susie Essman) take one side of the conflict, while Larry and his girlfriend Shara (Anne Bedian) are on the opposite side. The episode’s exploration of the Israel-Palestine conflict demonstrates the show’s willingness to tackle controversial and timely topics.
As the final season of Curb Your Enthusiasm approaches, fans can look forward to more of the series’ signature humor and social commentary. With its unique blend of satire and real-world issues, the show has left an indelible mark on television and continues to be celebrated by audiences around the world.
