'Curb Your Enthusiasm' Season Finale: What the Viewers Are Saying

Larry David angers both Michael J. Fox and the mother of a 7-year-old boy -- whom he calls “pre-gay” -- in Sunday night’s episode.

Larry David is getting high praise from viewers for the season finale of his HBO show, Curb Your Enthusiasm, which aired Sunday night.

In the episode, David manages to anger Michael J. Fox by drawing a Hitler mustache on Fox’s father-in-law on the cover of BusinessWeek, leading to his accusation that Fox was using his Parkinson’s disease to harass David.

In another potentially controversial story line, the star suspects a 7-year-old kid of being gay – and his mother perceives it as somewhat of an insult. Talking to the mom, David calls the kid “flamboyant” and tells her "it must be challenging to have a son like that." He later gifts the child with a sewing machine, which angers his mom, who asks:"Are you trying to turn him gay?" The mom insists that her child is happy and “normal,” to which David responds: "I think he might be gay." (Incidentally, the episode follows last week’s story line in which David and guest star Rosie O’Donnell were vying for the same bisexual woman.)
