'Curb Your Enthusiasm' - 'Larry vs. Michael J. Fox'For the season finale of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO), Larry David tapped one of New York's most famous citizens in Michael J. Fox. As he was playing a version of himself, FOX didn't shy away from his Parkinson's. In fact, it was a major part of the conflict between him and Larry.

But Parkinson's wasn't the only potentially controversial subject broached on this episode, as Larry gave a fantastic gift to a seven-year old "pre-gay" boy.

Now the gift was incredibly well-received and loved by the child, but his mother -- who also happens to be Larry's latest girlfriend -- was none too pleased, accusing Larry of trying to make her son gay.

Can Larry David Help Bill Buckner Find Redemption on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'? (VIDEO)

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' - 'Mister Softee'Thanks to his own screw-up with a routine grounder in the softball championship game, Larry David found himself able to commiserate with Bill Buckner on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO).

Buckner famously made a similar fielding error in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series for the Boston Red Sox that cost them the game.

Buckner was game to come on and make fun of his legacy a bit, when he again missed a routine toss of a baseball Larry had gotten signed for Jeff's birthday, on behalf of Susie. Maybe he agreed to it because they wrote in a bit of redemption for him as well.

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' S08/E05Woe betide anyone trying to cut ahead of Larry David in a line. He will call you out for it.

On 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO) he berated a woman for doing a "chat and cut" in the line for the buffet table.

She'd managed to push ahead of him by chatting to the guy in front of him and then sidling into the line behind the guy.

Larry tapped her on the shoulder and congratulated her on her "excellent attempt at a 'chat and cut.'"

In fact, she was so good at it that if Larry -- a self-professed master of the chat and cut -- hadn't been behind her, then she would probably have gotten away with it.

Larry Wears an Awkward Sunburn to a Funeral on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (VIDEO)

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' - 'The Smiley Face'Larry David had a dream on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO). He dreamed that he could date a woman at a restaurant he frequented, and then continue to go there after they broke up. His friends said it couldn't be done, but he was determined to do it.

Then, as Larry does, he facilitated their break-up by putting expectations on her that weren't met. His argument about her giving back the $60 he lent her after she didn't use it, though, was a valid one. His mistake was in trusting her to put sun block on his head while this argument was happening.

As such, she gifted him with the first thing he complained to her about. Smiley faces in text messages. It would have been that much funnier had she drawn it sideways on his head, to match the text version, but it was still a great visual ... particularly because Larry's next stop was the funeral of his assistant's father.

Larry Is Asked to Be a 'Dessert Referee' on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (VIDEO)

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' - 'Palestinian Chicken'In all honestly, we're going to have to back Larry David on the latest 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO). Of course, social etiquette probably says that when the woman started screaming and reaching for the cake, you let her have the cake.

But she did tell him to not let her have any, "no matter what." She'd just lost 60 lbs on a diet, and it wasn't even a passing conversation when she made Larry her "dessert referee." There were several exchanges, leading him to believe she was serious.

Maybe dessert is a particular weakness of hers, so Larry was more than happy to play the bad guy and not allow her to have a piece of cake. In fact, we'd argue that it did seem to be a weakness, and she had very little control over her impulses. Who fights that violently for a piece of cake?

Larry David Tries to Explain Tampons to a Girl Scout on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (VIDEO)

'Curb Your Enthusiasm' - 'The Divorce'If you're sitting there with an uncomfortable feeling sitting in the pit of your stomach, then you know Larry David is back. In the Season 8 premiere of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (Sun., 10PM ET on HBO), David found himself in one of the most awkward positions any man could be in.

A girl scout arrived selling cookies, and then realized she had just started her first-ever period. This isn't Larry's daughter. He has no woman in the house anymore. To his credit, Larry tried to do the right thing, and he did have tampons on hand at least.

We can't imagine a more traumatic first time for any young girl than having Larry David outside the bathroom door trying to explain to you how to use a tampon. As we usually see on 'Curb,' Larry's good intentions spiraled out of control and left him in his usual quagmire of self-induced misery.

We hosted the official first look at the new season in May, with glimpses of guest stars like Michael J. Fox, 'Mad Men' star Rich Sommer and Paul F. Tompkins among the familiar funny faces.

And even more big names have been announced since then, including Ricky Gervais, Rosie O'Donnell, Michael McKean and the return of Cheryl's BFF Wanda Sykes.

But none of this news, or the promise of Larry terrorizing NYC for at least half the season, has curbed anything -- we just want more information!

Here, 10 things to get you in the mood for what just might be the show's best season yet.
