I've gotten around to watching all six episodes of the first An Idiot Abroad series. Think there was a thread on this some time ago. Anyway, it's about Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant sending the lovable dimwit Karl Pilkington to seeing the Seven Wonders of the World and along the way encountering awkward situations for mainly Gervais and Merchant's amusement. The second season of An Idiot Abroad is currently airing in the UK, but from what I've been told, it isn't nearly as funny as the first season although the last episode that's aired recently is by far the best this season.
It sounds like the Rickey Gervais Show. It was an animated show of him and Merchant just making fun of their stupid friend for 30 minutes. I'm a huge Gervais/Merchant fan but this show blew chunks. It was so tiring. But this did serve to remind me that for 13 episodes Extras was the funniest thing on tv. There were so many classic moments. The time that the girl kept confusing Samuel L Jackson with Laurence Fishburn, Orlando Bloom ranting about Johnny Depp...there are just so many great moments.
The show dynamic sort of mimics those of the podcasts too, but the most interesting aspect comes from Karl's observations about the notable things he comes across on his travels.
Oh, and I loved Extras too. I prefer The Office over Extras myself, as I thought quality-wise the former was a more consistent show. For flat-out LOL moments, Extras wins.
I don't mind Karl and the stupid things that he says it is the dynamic of Rickey and Steve laughing non-stop at the stupid things that gets really tiring.
