Larry meets his producer in more ways than one in Season 5, an astonishing consideration of mortality, legacy, and spirituality. It’s unclear if this season was ever intended to be the show’s final, but it played out in many ways like a send-off, complete with a host of the worst offences. Larry during the season finale, followed by a trip to the literal afterlife angels guest star Dustin Hoffman and Sacha Baron Cohen. Questions about what Larry will leave behind and how he will be remembered throughout the season, whether it’s a whitefish sandwich named in his honor at a diner local delicacies or donate a kidney to his dying friend Richard Lewis.
Psychic issues make up nearly every episode, from Larry inviting a registered sex offender (Rob Corddry) to his Passover tranquilizer, to him and Susie masquerading as an Orthodox couple to make up with the doctor in charge of Richard’s kidney surgery. Larry has never been particularly religious, but his ties to Judaism were relieved when his father Nat (comedy legend Shelley Berman), recovering from a stroke, revealed that Larry has been adopted, and Larry discovers that his biological parents may be an alien couple living in Arizona.
The season begins and ends with a death and death that leads Larry to declare himself a changed man, but that change only lasts when the first cranky person he encounters. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
