Fans have lauded Curb Your Enthusiasm’s finale as ‘pure gold’ as the hit HBO sitcom came to an end after 20 seasons and ’24 years of crying laughter’.

Sunday’s series finale, titled No Lessons Learned, saw Larry David saved from serving a year in prison by Jerry Seinfeld.

The final episode was the 120th of the hit show that premiered in October 2000 and starred Larry, 76, and his Seinfeld co-creator Jerry Seinfeld, 69.

Its reference to Seinfeld won over social media with many giving their approval to the ending.

One fan on Twitter borrowed Larry’s phrase and said the conclusion of the series was ‘pretty, pretty, pretty, good!’

Another appreciated the nod to the Seinfeld finale on the show and said they couldn’t ask for a better ending.

‘That was a full circle ride,’ read another post on X that praised the ‘perfect’ ending.

The ending was even more poignant as it featured Larry’s good friend Richard Lewis, who died in February at age 76.

Richard and Larry both played fictionalized versions of themselves and the banter between the longtime friends was a highlight of the series. 

The 20th and final season began in February with an episode titled Atlanta in which Larry got arrested for giving water to Leon Black’s aunt while she was waiting in line to vote in Georgia.

The finale wrapped up his court case with Jerry going to Atlanta to show support along with Larry’s close friends Jeff Greene [Jeff Garlin] and his wife Susie [Susie Essman’, Richard Lewis, his ex-wife Cheryl [Cheryl Hines], Ted Danson and Leon [J. B. Smoove].

The circumstances were similar to the series finale of Seinfeld in which its star characters Jerry, Elaine, Kramer and George were jailed after failing to obey a new Good Samaritan Law.

The trial provided an opportunity for Larry’s behavior to be held against him as characters from the show’s history showed up to testify against him.

Jurors were told how Larry killed a swan at his golf club, stole shoes from a Holocaust museum, took flowers from a memorial, took a 5-wood golf club out of a man’s coffin and butchered the obituary of a ‘beloved aunt’.

They also learned that Larry refused to give Halloween candy to children, brought a sex offender to a Seder dinner, ate a dying dog’s last meal, hired a prostitute to use the carpool lane, gave Bruce Springsteen COVID, and once pretended to be an incest survivor named Todd.

Leon during the trial was binge viewing Seinfeld, which had never seen before, and told Jerry that he heard he ‘f***ed up’ the finale of the beloved sitcom.

The jury found Larry guilty and he was sentenced by the judge to the maximum sentence of one year in hope that he would finally learn a lesson.

A guard told Larry that someone was there to see him and Jerry showed up with good news.

He informed Larry that he met a juror who looked like Joe Pesci in a restaurant and the juror broke sequester forcing the judge to declare a mistrial.

‘You don’t wanna end up like this. Nobody wants to see it. Trust me,’ Jerry said in a nod to the Seinfeld finale.

Jerry and Larry then figured out they should have done this before. 

‘Oh my God, this is how we should’ve ended the finale,’ Larry said as they walked out.

‘Oh my God you’re right, how did we not think of that?,’ Jerry asked.

‘Ahhh,’ they said together while throwing their hands up.

The finale ended with Larry and his pals in an airplane headed back to Los Angeles.

Susie irritated Larry by raising her window shade and he yelled at her to close it.

‘Go f*** yourself, Larry. Go back to f***ing jail, Larry!,’ Susie yelled as the series concluded.
