An Idiot Abroad

Monday, January 24th, 2011

How come no one told me that Karl Pilkington now has his own show? This looks very, very funny. Although I’m not sure what it’s doing on the Science Channel.

    My wife and I watched it the other night. Freaking hilarious.

    It’s funny, but not quite as funny as the Ricky Gervais Show on HBO, which is the three of them sitting around talking (animated for extra comedic effect).

    I just hope they’re paying Karl a lot of money.

    Look at NatGeo and Science Channel programming. nothing makes sense.

    Ricky’s GG performance seemed very well-timed with An Idiot. I could watch him in China forever.

    This was on Sky at the end of 2010. Thanks to the internets, we watched it then and recently saw the ads for it on Science. It was very good – as long time fans of Karl, Steve & Ricky’s XFM radio show and then the podcasts…

    My wife speculated it may be on Science to get away with showing some of the nudity from some of the places he visits – the South American tribe and in India. May cause problems with some of the prudish censors here in the US but maybe Science or NatGeo could show it? It will probably be blurred anyway. It wasn’t on Sky in the UK. Ridiculous prudes here…

    not only is karl’s head look like a fucking orange, he’s the most unintentionally funny man in the world. as a gervais-a-holic, i recommend that you legally (and quasi-legally) download the following from the intra toobs.
    1. xfm shows (series 0 w/o karl pre-capitol, series 1,2,3)
    2. podcasts
    3. podfather series
    4. bbc holiday specials
    5. ricky gervais, guide to…

    Yeah, this has been out for quite some time (a couple of years?) in the UK.

    As Carl said, you need to get on the bittorrent!

    Need to ask my Aunt and Uncle about some of this stuff. They were missionaries in China for over twenty years.
