I love this show
7 October 2010 | by a05102267See all my reviews

"The Ricky Gervais Show" is one of the funniest, most clever and brilliant show (Animated or not) that I had the chance to see. It is interesting to note how the original audio of this show turns even better as a cartoon, giving an extra appeal to the surrealistic stories that are told by the three comedians; Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington: The way in which the three interact is the main factor of humor, being by far the funniest segment the lecture of Karl Pilkington's diary. The animation is pretty good: The designs remind me a lot the classic cartoons made by Hannah Barbera, being simple, but very expressive at the same time. This is, by far, one of the best animated comedies of the recent years, and it feels like a breath of fresh air, after so many bad shows that try too hard to be like "The Simpsons" or more offensive than "South Park"
