‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ Takes on Pandemic Hoarders (and Netflix) in Larry David’s Glorious Return to TV
John P. Johnson\HBOThe world has radically changed since Curb Your Enthusiasm last went off the air in March 2020. Yet as the HBO series resumes its cringe-worthy run tonight (Oct. 24), Larry David remains the same impossibly combative and antisocial curmudgeon that he’s always been. Season 11’s premiere, “The Five-Foot Fence,” finds the comedian as awkwardly hilarious as ever. In a twist, though, it largely doesn’t have him grapple with the pandemic, which in light of Larry’s prior people-hating behavior, seemed like it would have struck him as a lockdown dream come true.COVID-19 is merely a minor element of Curb Your Enthusiasm’s return, via the issue of Purell, and the hoarding of basic home goods and supplies—hand sanitizer, toilet paper, etc.—that was all the rage when the crisis first began. Before that real-world issue can factor into the season’s maiden episode, it concentrates on a different sort of catastrophe: a dead body that Larry discovers in his pool late at night, after being awakened by crashing noises that indicated a break-in was taking place. As it turns out, while trying to flee with Larry’s goods, a burglar tripped, hit his head, and fell into the pool, where he fatally drowned. More alarming for Larry, however, is the news that he’s in violation of a local city ordinance that stipulates that all private swimming pools be surrounded by a fence, which his most certainly is not.With regard to this infraction, Larry is let off with a warning by the investigating police officer. Nonetheless, as is usually the case with Curb Your Enthusiasm, triumph is fleeting and misery is inevitable, and it’s not long before Larry receives an extortion note about the missing fence. This blackmail scheme is the brainchild of Marcos (Marques Ray), the brother of the deceased thief, who threatens to go public about Larry’s no-fence lawbreaking—and thus saddle Larry with enormous legal and financial headaches—unless Larry casts his daughter Maria Sofia (Keyla Monterroso Mejia) in an upcoming project. The problem is, Maria Sofia is merely a cook and waitress at her dad’s taqueria, with only minimal acting experience—meaning, she once starred in a school production of Romeo and Juliet—and, as evidenced by her impromptu performance for Larry, even less talent.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Opinion: How live rounds got in Alec Baldwin's gun is key to shooting investigation
On Thursday, Alec Baldwin fired what he was told was a safe "prop gun" on the set of the film "Rust." Instead, the gun was apparently loaded with live ammunition, leading to the stunning death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injury to the movie's director, Joel Souza. Though an intense police investigation continues, it seems highly unlikely that Baldwin will be charged with a crime. So, after such a terrible tragedy, now what?
