This DVD is an insight to the weird and wonderful world of the round headed buffoon that is Karl Pilkington. And boy, is it enjoyable! For anyone who's not sure, The Ricky Gervais Show originated as a radio show, featuring Ricky and Steven Merchant (The writers behind The Office and Extras). At the time, Pilkington was the radio producer, but later featured on the show. The show went on to become a podcast and these cartoons are the animated versions of the podcast.
The animation style (reminiscent of old Hannah Barbera cartoons) is clever and funny and really helps Karl Pilkington's genius insights. The 13 episodes on this set are all laugh-a-minute. Whether its the regulars like Monkey News, Questions for Karl or Karl's Diary, or simply the running gags like the fact you never see Suzanne's face, this show is bound to make you chuckle.
Gervais and Merchant fans will enjoy this, but Pilkington is by far the standout. My only question is - just where is series 2?
