The Moaning of Life (2013)
Karl Pilkington really is a Genius !
If you are a fan of The Idiot Abroad Series (Named Ironically, I believe) you would absolutely know what you are getting into. It's the Great Karl with his artistic, toned down, humble, crazy and underdog qualities. If you are unaware of Karl and his work I would say you would end up liking him. In this Series titled the Moaning of Life Karl sets out to find the meaning of life while moaning (I guess with Ricky and Steve's absence a little less) about it.
Karl explores throughout the series about Marriage, Happiness, Reproduction, Money and Death. He kind of in a beautiful way express the point that all human lives are usually lived in a state of, functional nihilism. That in fact Very few of us believe that human life is devoid of all meaning and that all we should do is answer to our base urges and fulfill our basic desires and just live on about do your job (As in Karl's own words). And he also points out the fact that most of us act as if we believe that. Like they could all like, contribute to cancer research or write a novel or puzzle through quantum mechanics or plant trees or fight wild fires or harvest food for the poor. But they don't usually do any of that stuff. Most of them spend their free time by, like, watching television, playing video games, or searching for happiness and meaning of life etc.., To people who might think just from the trailer, reviews and summary that this is boring Travel Documentary. I will put it simple, it is not. It's a bloke from England going around the world trying to find the meaning of life in the most funniest ways possible, presenting us with the out of the norm view from different culture and people. The funny aspect of the Series is the highlight and I guess that's why it works. You laugh, you cringe, you envy, you moan, you cry and most importantly you think.
