    After the unfortunate news earlier today that the Golden Globe-nominated actor and comedian Garry Shandling had passed away at the age of 66, there’s a bit of good news to brighten up the day. It seems that Shandling had been working on a deal with HBO to bring the comedy series The Larry Sanders Show back to the premium network exclusively.

    The Wrap reports that, after The Larry Sanders Show was removed from Crackle just a couple of months ago (the entire series had been streaming on Sony’s platform earlier this year), the rights to the show reverted back to HBO. Crackle executives apparently expressed an interest in streaming the episodes again after hearing about Shandling’s death, but the exclusive rights on HBO’s behalf prevented this. Instead, The Larry Sanders Show will appear on HBO’s network and its streaming platforms.

    It's a great show. But how is it good news that it's back on HBO behind a pay wall as opposed to a "free" service like crackle?

    I was thinking about this guy today after hearing about Shandling's death. Man, he's had an awesome career that continues to this day.

    Crackle inserted several commercial breaks into each episode.

    Once the show was pulled in January, I had to get the final 2 seasons from Amazon It cost me a few dollars but there were no commercials.

    I always wondered why it was never available on HBO Go or On Demand. Other HBO series aren't there either. I wanted to look back at shows like 1st and 10, Dream On, Tenacious D, Mr. Show, and even that stupid Arli$$ but they've never been available.

    Irrelevant since most people have already downloaded the series via a Torrent site (I assume)

    Hank was a great character. He was the perfect Hank. Rip Torn was a perfect Artie. The magic of that show was similar to the magic of Seinfeld. The lead role allowed the other characters to be funnier. Jerry was never funny on Seinfeld. He was the straight guy. Bob Newhart's shows were like that too. It's a good formula.

    Hank's Sex Tape, the one where Hank buys a car from Elvis Costello, and the one where Hank smuggles cigars in from Cuba were my favorite episodes.

    Classic.
