With THE WATERMELON, CURB has officially turned in the most offensive episode of the season. All I can say without spoiling too much is that it involves a cow named Jessie, cream shaming, watermelon acceptance, and a klansman mishap. The brilliance of CURB is how all of these seemingly random plots are weaved together to make an offensively hilarious episode.
Rather than only make fun of Jewish people, Larry David equally attacks all sides. What’s exciting about this is how each character lives by a particular moral code. Regardless of being a klansman, a jew, or a black man, the most critical code of all is to pick something up after you drop it.
So sound the alarm this Sunday night via a shofar and alert your friends to tune in to CURB on HBO MAX. At this point, it’s “tradition.”
