What did the calendar say to his boss?

“I need a day off.”
Where did Larry David, creator and star of the TV sitcom Curb Your Enthusiasm, first hear “Frolic,” the tune that became his show’s theme song?

In a bank commercial, in the mid-1990s. David was so taken with the music, written by Italian composer Luciano Michelini, that he kept information about it on file for future use. The future arrived in 2000 when he launched his offbeat sitcom.

SERIES: Deadwood

SETUP: Sol Star (John Hawkes) tells town sheriff Seth Bullock (Timothy Olyphant), “Your fly is down.”

GOOF: Deadwood is set in 1876. The modern zipper didn’t exist yet—it wasn’t perfected until 1913. Star should have told Bullock his fly was “open.”
A plasma TV uses about twice as much energy as an LCD set of the same size.
