I love Fraiser as much as the next sitcom but I often wonder what it would’ve been like without the laugh track. Sarcastic? Uncomfortable? Awkward? Yes.

In an excerpt from the ‘Origins’ podcast, creator Larry David and the cast dish on the origins of the HBO hit ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ ahead of Season 9.
David: You know, when people told me after the show started airing that they had to leave the room for some scenes because they were cringing and they couldn’t bear to watch — it was like a horror movie — I had no idea it was having that effect on people. That was a complete surprise to me, and I liked it. I liked that they couldn’t see it. But I never really gave it that much thought. I was just trying to do funny shows. I never felt I was going too far. I felt I was doing what I wanted to see.
I didn’t realize that they improved the whole show. Leon and Larry, those were my favorite scenes.

There’s been a lot of public talk about “identity” lately, stimulated by high-profile cases of transsexuality (notably the athlete now named Caitlyn Jenner) and transracialism (Rachel Dolezal). It needs to be said: most of the talk, on all sides of these disputes, has been obvious nonsense – utter drivel that should not have survived five minutes of thought.
This is a long, well thought out read…but my two cents is that this particular case is NOT about rejection or identity. It’s about TV ratings.

Sometimes when the workdays are hard I shut off my email and put on the Hill Street Blues theme song. Just set it to repeat for 10 minutes and settle in for a somber yet heartwarming, E flat piano melody. It’s not overly sentimental but it hits just the right spots. I know if they can make it through their rough and tumble 9-5 shift so can I.

I have my shows so whatever, no judgement.
But then she goes to have her shower and the next thing I know I’m standing in front of the TV for ten minutes waiting to see what happens to the werewolf.
