there and back again

Awkward Television.

I just finished an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.  This show might actually be too awkward for me.  I didn’t think I had a problem with television being too uncomfortable to watch.  I didn’t love the UK version of The Office as much as the American version, but I have friends who literally cannot watch it for cringing.  I find Curb Your Enthusiasm funny, but at the same time, I just watch Larry David and hate him intensely for making everyone around him deal with his awkwardness.  I have a friend who can’t watch Seinfeld because she passionately hates all the main characters, and now I’m starting to get what she means.  I’m waiting for someone to grab him and scream, fucking relax already!  It’s going to be okay!  Sometimes people lose their shoes or don’t call you back.  It’s going to be fine, Larry David.  Just stop making everyone around you contort themselves in horrible ways to deal with your lack of social skills.  

Still, I’m going to keep watching.  Not really sure why yet, evidently.
