Can't get enough
14 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely love this show, and any other one that has to do with Karl Pilkington such as: "An idiot abroad". I can't get enough of this guy. I must have watched all three seasons about 50 times by now and its still just as funny as when I first watched it. I thank my old roommate everyday for letting me use HBO GO on my xbox 360. I had first saw An idiot abroad on TV, and Karl Pilkington would crack me up so much, but when I found the Ricky Gervais show I was blown away. They could easily do 20 seasons of this show. In fact, Ricky Gervais, I am begging you to bring out more episodes of this show. Listening to podcasts isn't enough. The animation completes the whole thing. 10 out of 10 from me.
