  1. Season 10 of CYE is off to a good start, but sorely lacking in ONE thing…Curb Your Enthusiasm wont be the same without Bob Einstein (Funkhouser). For the actual SEASON 10 tribute to Bob (incl a ‘backhanded’ eulogy from his brother, Albert Brooks) , you might look at this:  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1713309033
    Even Jeff Schaffer can’t write around that absence and more Richard Lewis and JB/Leon screen time wont replace the Einstein/Funkhouser moments with LD.
