Amazingly Funny!!!

Karl Pilkington is hysterical! His strange view of life and the people he encounters is perfect for someone that is traveling the world! I can't stop laughing!!!

Wonderfully hillarious!

This show is was a great idea by funnyman Ricky Gervais. They send their very close-minded friend, Karl, around the world to see the 7 wonders. The thing is, Karl hates traveling and sees no point in learning about other cultures. His view points on everything from food, language, the way people look, and even the 7 wonders themselves are hillarious. Kept me laughing. Definately a must watch show! And if you get a chance, watch the preview episode. It's an inside view of the show and the idea behind it. Lots of candid interviews, and makes the episodes that much funnier.


Looks like I'm the only one here who thinks this series was absolutely horrible. I watched "China" and it was OK; I liked to see the people and view a country that has been closed to the outside world for so long. But then came "India" and I was thoroughly disgusted. Close minded or not, I thought the practices of these people to be beyond belief. Yet Karl was supposed to broaden his horizons and be accepting no matter what. First it puzzled me, then it become pure repulsion.

The situations Karl was purposely put in and the mockery of him was nothing short of sadistic. The idea that we are to "understand" the world, no matter how different from our own, is simply asking too much. We all have boundaries that we are comfortable with and there is nothing wrong with that. But many times IMO this season crossed them way too often. I really felt sorry for Karl, who ends up as the most intelligent of the lot. Ricky and Stephen have a mean streak and it simply was not funny to see them mock their "friend". With friends like these, who needs enemies?

Shame on the producers of this mess.
