Product Description

All 13 episodes from the second season of the animated TV comedy show. The programme initially began as a radio show and later became a podcast series, finally being adapted into animation for the small-screen in 2010. Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington discuss a variety of often ridiculous topics with frequently hilarious results. The episodes comprise: 'Clive Warren', 'Doppelganger', 'The Fly', 'Onion', 'Insects', 'Kidneys', 'Night Club', 'Future', 'Natural History', 'Leg Rubber', 'Mrs. Battersby', 'Art' and 'Munchies'.


Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington’s collection of podcasts earned them a massive fanbase, who would regularly download the latest adventures of the trio in equally large numbers. With few subjects off topic, they quickly became firm favourites. Then, someone had the idea of setting said podcasts to animation, and that became the basis for The Ricky Gervais Show.

It sounds like a gimmick at heart, especially when you consider that the audio has been available before in another form. But what makes The Ricky Gervais Show work is the sheer level of fun they have with the animation. It’s frequently very funny, and the passages they choose to animate are very well selected. As a result of that, it draws far more fun out of the material, and works extremely well. There’s a real sense that something is being added to the material with the animated work, and that’s no easy tricky to pull off.

That said, Gervais’s humour remains divisive, although if you enjoyed An Idiot Abroad you’re likely to have a blast with The Ricky Gervais Show. For if you do warm to their comedy, then Gervais, Merchant and Pilkington are on real form here, and are as excellent a triple act as they’ve ever been. --Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME 27 July 2013
By Josh
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Pretty much anything Ricky and Karl do is funny and of great quality and this is no exception. The banter between the 3 of these and the insight into Karl's mind/world is simply hillarious. I think season 2 is better than season 1. You'll never tire of watching this dvd

5.0 out of 5 stars Cue the Belly Laughs 30 Jun 2012
This fantastic programme returns for a second series and I'm happy to report that it is as a hilarious as ever!

The basic premise of the show if you haven't seen it before is essentially cartoon esque re-imagining of some excerpts from excellent The Ricky Gervais Podcast series. Every episode is centered around recording studio sessions with Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and professional Chimp Pal Karl Pilkington.

They all discuss a variety of subjects and get Karl's opinion on them. Given that Karl has some very unique and hilarious views this leads to some huge laugh at loud moments. Complimenting the banter is Hanna Barbera style animation which really adds extra hilarity to the topics being discussed.

If you liked either the Podcast's or Sky One's 'An Idiot Abroad' you will absoultely love this. My favourite section personally is Karls Diary but Monkey News is also a very funny feature.

By William Mason TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This fantastically funny show returns for a second series. Based on the Ricky Gervais podcasts, this is a cartoon show featuring Ricky, with his right-hand man Stephen Merchant, and their comedy straight man, Karl Pilkington. They cover a wide range of subjects, including ideas for a new Hollywood movie, brain donors, doppelgängers, art, mirrored walls, and why you shouldn't go to Australia, etc. The comedy is off the wall, irreverent, sarcastic and very witty.
Quite a debate has taken place about whether Karl is genuinely asinine and ignorant, or if his lines are scripted. Personally, I think that what Karl says is so funny, that it must have been carefully thought about and pre-planned. My girlfriend observes that Ricky laughs so much, hyena style, that it's intrusive and gets annoying. I don't agree, I think that it suits his cartoon character perfectly, who, by the way, looks just like Freddie Flintstone.
The artwork is very good, especially the sketches illustrating the subject matter of the trio's discussions. You do find yourself feeling quite sorry for Karl. As a comedy punchbag, he takes quite a beating from the other two, but it does result in lots of belly laughs. If you've had a rough day at work and need to take your mind off things, this show works a treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love these 3! 18 July 2013
By Gourlay

I have been a fan for the 3 of them since the XFM days and I've listened to every podcasts and radio show they've produced! The cartoon style is a nice alternative to simply listening to the 3 of them!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE RICKY HUMOUR PICTURE SHOW 6 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I would highly recommend this DVD to anyone even if you aren't a fan of Ricky Gervais this show is really funny and the banter during their debates on topics whilst in appearing as cartoon characters can be hilarious at times there is quite a bit of swearing in these shows so I would rate it more for teenagers and adults but I found this show to be really funny and real value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and rewatchable 30 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just love The Ricky Gervais show and have the first two series on DVD. I can't wait for the third series to be released because I can watch them over and over again and they are hilarious. Karl Pilkington is too stupid for words, but sometimes Ricky and Stephen overlook his opinion because of his track record. I think this is sometimes unfair because I agree with some of his ideas. But you should definitely buy this if you enjoyed the series on first viewing. If you haven't seen the series before, you might want to get this one before the first series because they get better each time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest Show On TV? 26 Jun 2012
The Ricky Gervais Show finally returns to DVD-
13 more episodes of the only show on TV that I find so consistently funny that I honestly cant't catch my breath for laughing so hard.
That makes it well worth owning. Season 2 is just as good as Season 1 and I cant wait to see new episodes- a brilliant animated series.
