    Hey now! After Jeffrey tambor was on the wrap up show I got an itch to watch the Larry sanders shows again. Even though I watched it when it originally aired, I have forgotten most of it and it is so good. I just started season 4 and don't want it to end. Besides the show being brilliant on it's own, it's great to see all the guests 20 years younger and also see that Larry's agent was played by Saul goodman from breaking bad, and Colin Quinn played Artie's son, and Jeremy piven was the head writer. Anyone else watch this recently?

    Not recently. Great show though. Rip Torn is awesome as his sidekick.

    Great show, right up there with the best of the best IMO. The only somewhat distracting thing (same with The Sopranos) is the "style" of the times (wardrobe, hairstyles), which dates it a bit. But the content isn't dated. It's still dead-on as far as lampooning the whole TV-talk show-showbiz industry.

    I've thought about looking for it. Is it on HBO GO? I thought it was brilliant in many ways. A million times better than Entourage.

    Hmmm, you are right. Don't know why I was thinking of him. "Hey Now" Hank Kingsley was the sidekick. I should be negged.

    on one episode, they were getting rid of the contents of the set, and among the things that had to go were a bunch of huge letters that spelled out "LARRY"

    the head writer went to larry and said something about how he had a neighbor named ray, so he wanted to take one of the R's, the A and the Y, put them on ray's lawn, so that when he woke up he would have his mind blown away when he looked outside and saw his name spelled out in his yard

    larry (gary shandling) said "no!"

    Isn't binge watching fun? I was way late to the game in watching The Office. Once I discovered that it was funny, I binge watched the whole series. I only watched the final season in real time. I got to missing Curb Your Enthusiasm last year and binge watched the whole series as well.

    I just read today that the actress was in a relationship with Gary for 6 Years and when they broke up, she was written off the show, she sued and got 1 million dollars.


    Judd apatow produced and wrote a lot of the shows

    Just Google her Playboy pics, they're a major disappointment- terrible tit job, but she was perfect on that show as the office babe. Too bad that crowface Shandling couldn't sustain true love with her IRL either.

    I only watched it about 2 years ago for the first time. I easily rank it as one of my all time favorite comedies. I guess I just never really "got" Shandling back then.
    Darlene is around 59-60 so she could be a mess by now.



    This is from about 7 years ago.

    But let's try and just remember her this way.
