Anyone watch this? The concept is that Ricky Gervais and some other guy met this buffoon, and for a lark they send him around the world to experience other cultures and world wonders, and they record his misery.
I watched the intro/pilot and the first episode, where Karl goes to China to see the Great Wall. It had a few laugh-out-loud moments, which is more than I can say for most TV shows. If Karl is being Karl, he's a very sheltered, shallow person. His take on China and the Chinese is xenophobic, but not intentionally insultingly so. Just watch some clips:http://science.discovery.com/tv/an-idiot-abroad/
