Naturally a big Seinfeld fan is going to like CURB too. This was my favorite episode. The description is not mine as the jet lag hasn't curbed.
Earlier we said it’s the rare Curb
episode that manages to restrain Larry David’s attention span and
introduce varying plot elements that assemble together beautifully and
seamlessly in the climax. “The Doll” is one such treasure. Everything
that precedes the final scene, from an annoyingly righteous theater
attendant, to a latch-less bathroom door, and of course, the doll,
plays a part in creating the horrific, hilarious but also horrible,
how-is-he-going-to-explain-this situation that Larry finds himself in
during the final minutes. Nothing is extraneous, making “The Doll” a
textbook example of tight sitcom writing, and as only the seventeenth
episode of the series, solidfying Curb.
if it needs more praise, “The Doll” also boasts a top five Susie
massacre (and the first time the show employs the Western-showdown score
as her takedown theme?) when she catches Larry and Jeff sneaking around
the house (they’re separated at the time) and later when she realizes
what they were up to. In the opening moments, Larry and Julia
Louis-Dreyfuss are pitching a show about a sitcom star tired of being
associated with her one famous role. After this episode though, Larry
had officially stepped out of Seinfeld’s shadow.
