My First Review.... What an honor!!!
9 April 2016 | by ZoeStarr1986See all my reviews

Well as that summary says this is officially my first ever (of many i hope) review on something on IMDb.com and boy what an honor it is to review this wonderful mans work! I think this is one fantastic show BOTH seasons so far are so hilarious and had both me and my partner literally crying with laughter. I think its amazing how he voices his opinions in a funny and yet serious way and is still able to keep a straight face (most the time! ha ha)

I love how he goes into details with things (especially season one) in each episode because it gives us - the people who haven't had children or got married etc - a good sight on what it COULD be like etc to have babies, get married, be rich, be poor etc (i'm hoping this isn't a spoiler as I've not actually said what happens)

I am hoping he carries on to do more seasons for this show, not sure what he can do for each season but hey, i'm pretty sure he will think of something.

I could go on and write about Karl Pilkington forever but i shall leave it at that as i have wrote about what i think of this show! Again it was an honor, what a wonderful, brilliant and funny man! Keep up the amazing work Karl! =)
