What I Watched This Week: 26 Dec 2021

Curb Your Enthusiasm – “The Mormon Advantage” (A) / season finale
Everything comes together in a marvelous finale that weaves together all this season’s plot threads, while somehow introducing Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman to the proceedings in a hilarious way. But the show also has perhaps its riskiest bit of comedy to date, with Larry stealing shoes from an exhibit at a Holocaust museum. Only he could get away with that.

How To with John Wilson – “How to Be Spontaneous” (B+) / season finale
This season ends on perhaps its weakest episode to date. But that just speaks to how wonderful this show is that it doesn’t really feel all that disappointing.

How To with John Wilson – “How to Remember Your Dreams” (A-)
Another delightful journey, though it doesn’t take as many surreal detours as you might think.

The Great – Season 2 (A- average)
Though at times it felt a little repetitive, the show continued to be as funny as ever, while adding deeper levels of emotional complexity to all its characters, even Peter.
