Trivia Time: Michael J. Fox Edition

Posted: September 12, 2011 by Keith Stone in Curb Your Enthusiasm, Michael J. Fox, trivia

It was a big week for Michael J. Fox. First, Nike announced that they created his self-lacing sneakers from Back to the Future Part II, then he absolutely killed it as Larry’s nemesis on the season finale of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Fox really proved that he has a great sense of humor and he can still act, but I would not recommend taking a soda from him. Booting Larry from New York with the help of Mayor Bloomberg was a fitting end to, dare I say, a historic season. That brings us to our Question of the Week. Get it right and you can ride in the DeLorean. The answer, as always, is after the jump.

What is Michael J. Fox’s middle name? (and a hint: it is not Jay)


Larry David is having a season like Wayne Gretzky in 1982 or Tom Brady in 2007 (before the Super Bowl, of course). Curb Your Enthusiasm is reaching unparalleled heights. Each episode seems like the apex but the ensuing one matches it and surpasses it. This week, you had Bill Buckner catching a baby, Larry’s bad memories from a Mr. Softee truck, black guys in glasses, and a car built like Peter North. I don’t know how he does it but this may be the funniest season of any show in TV history. That’s what happens when you move a series to the Greatest City in the World. Next week is the season finale featuring Michael J. Fox and I can’t even imagine how hilarious it’s going to be.

Bill Buckner’s appearance on Curb wasn’t the best sports cameo of the night, though. Amar’e Stoudemire, Michael Strahan, Mark Teixeira, and A-Rod were on Entourage as investors in Turtle’s new Italian restaurant. Is it possible to split an Emmy four ways?

So after all the hype and buildup for the Situation/Ronnie fight and seeing Sitch get taken off a stretcher with all the girls crying, it turns out he banged his own head on the wall? I was expecting a Ronnie one shot, not dancing with the guidos. I seriously thought Ronnie was going to snap the Situation’s neck in half. I hate Sammi Sweetheart and I hate Conservative Ronnie. I can’t believe that MTV actually split the “fight” into two episodes. Bastards.

On the other hand, Larry David knocked it out of the park on Sunday. One-armed man. Racist judge. Two-piece skis. This is the Summer of Larry David. First, he’s chilling with Woody Harrelson at Yanks-Sox and now he’s just dominating New York on Curb. This is like the third episode in a row that I said to myself, “There’s no way this season could get any funnier,” and then the next episode comes around and he proves me wrong. I also think the car periscope is a mighty fine invention.
