Check Please!

Sunday night during a new golden age of television-- Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Check Please (which could also be called Curb Your Enthusiasm). Assuming it was not a re-run, here's what I saw-- a Chicago everyman and a comfortable couple with serious rivalry problems. The establishments: Hong Min for egg rolls, Mongolian Beef, and hot and sour soup; Cafe Absinthe for progressive French; and Grizzly's lodge for game meats prepared Buffalo-style. (Interesting final choice? The solo guest's buddy owns the bar.) I'm begining to think Amanda Puck is going for off-beat comedy with the guests. I was squirming in my chair as the couple went at it, he passively, she very actively.
