An Idiot Abroad

http://i.imgur.com/sbXcE.jpg

The Seven Wonders of the World... Christ The Redeemer... The Taj Mahal... The Great Pyramids... Truly man's greatest achievements. But there's one man who sees them differently.

A fantastic travel series not like any other. Why, I hear you ask? Because of Karl Pilkington, the most naive and straight-thinking person in the world. Some of you might know him from The Ricky Gervais Show, where you could hear Karls profound ideas how to fix the world. As an example; If people hadn't invented planes, would we have wings now?

The first series explores his unique views on the Seven Wonders of the World (although the New Seven Wonders of the World include the Colosseum in Rome, this is not one of Pilkington's destinations because Ricky and Stephen thought that Rome would have been too familiar to what he is used to; instead he visits the Great Pyramids in Egypt), while the second series (it just ended its airing a week agoo) is about The Bucket List, the things to do before you die (Bungee jumping, climbing Mount Fuji, seeing an alive whale or gorrila in their natural environment)

I highly recommend it to everyone, it not only has beautifully recorded shots of nature, but also they are VERY funny and entertaining to see what Ricky and Steve can think of things to do to Karl.

Re: An Idiot Abroad

This show is great. I think the second season is better then the first but it's still totally awesome. And by the way, everybody needs a pair of Pilko's Pump Pants.  big_smile

Re: An Idiot Abroad

Karl is awesome!!

I'm a big fan of Karl and i strongly suggest you listen/watch to the ricky gervais show before watching this show. Karl's opinions and life stories are the main feature of these shows. With some background information Karl is even more funny to observe.

Re: An Idiot Abroad

I just watched the first episode and I'm not sure yet if I like it or not. Generally I hate people who aren't willing to try out new things. The fact that he was almost throwing up while eating that frog looked very disrespectful. He just seems a bit ungrateful of the fact that he gets to see the 7 wonders of the world. And yes I know that is the whole charm of the show.

I do know a few britts and I see a lot of similarities with them and Karl. I will probably watch more to make up my mind.

Re: An Idiot Abroad

Well that's the whole point, he's not openminded and doesn't want to do it. smile

Re: An Idiot Abroad

At the beginning of the show Ricky compared him to Homer Simpson, closed minded but loveable. I just don't see the loveable part. Couple of times during the show I thought he was a dick. Maybe that's because I'm just not familiar with how his mind works yet. Anyways I have season 1 downloaded so I will watch at least that at some point.

Re: An Idiot Abroad

I believe you see him as a dick because he was thrown into a new and, for him, hostile enviroment and that was his defense mechanism. (Although he can be a dick, true. XD)

Re: An Idiot Abroad

Sadly I only watched a pilot, but after what this little round-headed buffoon did in RGS I'm sure the Idiot Abroad series will be so hilarious.... and educational of course. Can't forget about this important aspect.  cool

I do drugs.

Re: An Idiot Abroad

Not really a pilot, but just a preview special.

Re: An Idiot Abroad

Hehe, yea I remember seeing this a while back, i'm sure this is when Ricky had the idea for Season 3  smile

Re: An Idiot Abroad

Season 4 just appeared on my watchlist... anyone got info on that?

...where did I put that rat's ass I could give?

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

Re: An Idiot Abroad

I think someone mistakenly labeled the second season of Moaning of Life.
