Larry David is gearing up to star in his first Broadway play, Fish in the Dark, in 2015, but he stopped by The B.S. Report with Bill Simmons this week to talk everything Larry. In addition to some fun background on the play, there was a lot of discussion of Seinfeld and the future of Curb Your Enthusiasm. You can watch a very entertaining, if somewhat sobering, clip from the interview below. Nevertheless, it's pretty...pretty...pretty good stuff.

David reveals that he's reluctant to wrap any bows on Curb Your Enthusiasm— which has run for eight seasons, one less than Seinfeld, but hasn't been on air since 2011—and that's all because the legacy of the Seinfeld finale casts a shadow over everything.

"I got so much grief from the Seinfeld finale, which a lot of people intensely disliked, that I no longer feel a need to wrap things up," David said. Simmons asked him if he was still mad about the reactions to the finale: "I wouldn't say I'm mad about it, but it taught me a lesson that if I ever did another show, I wasn't gonna wrap it up." He reflects on his unsentimental view of the characters and the disappointment around the episode, then steps back to reveal he still really likes the finale:

David: But let me toot my own horn for a second. I thought it was clever to bring back all those characters in a courtroom and testify against them for what they did, and then show those clips, and also for why they even got arrested in the first place. And then to wind up — forget the self-aggrandizement here—

Simmons: No, I’m with you.

David: I thought it was clever.

The problem of course is that people weren't upset the characters ended up in jail—the finale is conceptually brilliant and satisfyingly nasty, it just suffers from very disappointing execution. Nobody wanted a glorified clip show for a finale (especially not after two actual clip show episodes immediately preceding it)—but even worse, the pacing on the episode was completely static, and the writing... wasn't particularly funny (unless you find it hilarious watching classic one or two episode characters repeat their most famous catchphrases in a weird new setting).

So you shouldn't hold your hope out for more Curb unfortunately (although David has threatened to end the show and stop writing many, many times before): "I guess the odds would be against it. I guess, right now, the odds would be against it, probably 6 to 1." At least Seinfeld got the finale it truly deserved in season seven of Curb. We shudder to imagine a world in which Jery and Gerge have never debated the merits of cloth napkin nose blowing.
