Since this is one of the finest comedy shows of the last few years I felt that it deserved a thread on it's own merits but I also thought it would be interesting to see if anyone here has had any 'Larry David incidents' happen to them, either recently or in the past.

I had one last week when I went to the cinema with my sister, we went for a meal beforehand and when we had to pay we didn't have enough small change so I had to give a large(ish) note as payment. The waitress took the money and went to the till, but didn't return with the change. This produced a Larry-Cheryl style discussion between me and my sister where we, quite loudly, complained about why she hadn't brought the change, saying things like ''She can't honestly believe we left a £15 tip on a £25 meal, it wasn't that fucking good'' and my sister telling me to sit still and not get up and complain. When we did eventually get the change the waitress gave me a really mean look for not waiting for the change and I gave an equally venomous look for wasting my time. The complaining between me and my sister continued almost until the film we saw came on. It was only afterwards that I realised how surreal the whole thing had been and how much I had sounded like Larry.

Whilst I was looking at IMDb I came across this fantastic fact:

QUOTE
In 2003, a man named Juan Catalan was arrested for a murder in California. He repeatedly professed his innocence and asked to take a lie detector test, a request that the police denied. He also had an alibi: he swore that at the time of the murder he was at Dodger Stadium with his little girl, watching LA get creamed by the Braves, but his lawyer was unable to find him in any of the Dodger Vision or FOX footage he subpoenaed. Catalan's lawyer discovered that there was another possible source of crowd footage: "Curb Your Enthusiasm" had shot at Dodger Stadium that night. Although he Catalan did not make the final cut of the show, his lawyer was able to find him and his daughter depicted in the outtakes, and ascertain from the timestamps on the tapes that he could not have been the killer. When told that his show had released a wrongfully accused man from prison and a trial that could have led to the death penalty, Larry David commented, "I tell people that I've now done one decent thing in my life, albeit inadvertently."


TV saves lives. Fact.
