Larry David and Bill Simmons Talk 'Seinfeld,' 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' and Series Finales

"I think the thing about finales is everybody writes their own finale in their head, whereas if they just tune in during the week to a normal show, they’re surprised by what's going on. They haven't written it beforehand, they don't know what the show is. But for a finale, they go, 'Oh, well this should happen to George, and Jerry and Elaine should get together,' and all that. They've already written it, and often they're disappointed, because it's not what they wrote."
