This series is absolutely hillarious. Its fascinating to watch Karl thrust into unusual, awkward and sometimes quite painful(!) situations and to see how he reacts to what Ricky and Stephen have planned for him. TV gold at its best!Report this review
Hilarious series and most definitely worth watching. Karl is so funny without really trying to be and seeing him put into peculiar, awkward and sometimes painful(!) situations by Ricky and Stephen is TV gold! Brilliant.Report this review
I wasn't really convinced about this after watching a few clips but having now watched it in full I can honestly say I haven't laughed so much in ages. Karl is just brilliant. On one hand I want to murder him for being such a plonker, on the other I want to adopt him forever. Genius series!Report this review
i loved it! i laughed till i cryed, really recommend.Report this review
It has been a long time since I have laughed so much. At first I thought that I wouldn't like that and that Karl seemed ignorant, but that is part of the amusing...it sounds awful saying this but you are kind of laughing at him not the other cultures. It was side splitting.Report this review
I followed Karl Pilkington to the seven wonders of the world in Sky HD earlier this Autumn from the contrastive comfort of my sitting room. The butt of an elaborate joke, Karl is shuttled off to the seven wonders of the world by the ever-bullying Gervais and Merchant, under the pretense of a travel show. What follows is in fact sabotage as they push him headlong into the most uncomfortable and confrontational situations possible in foreign climates. Take into account the fact that Karl Pilkington reacts to foreign ideas and new things like a fish out of water, and you have a highly entertaining series, whose reality isn't clear to its star until the season closing. The deadpan ramblings of Karl will keep you entertained for hours, as he makes completely blunt and obscure observations about foreign culture, and attempts to regularly flee the Sky camera crew. Excellent from start to finish.Report this review
For those people not familiar with Karl Pilkington, he first met Steve merchant and Ricky Gervais whilst producing their radio show on XFM. His pearls of wisdom made him the main draw of the show and the three of them went on to produce the most downloaded podcasts in the world. Karl Pilkington is the everyman that all of us have hidden away inside. He is the child who is not afraid to say what he thinks - and what he thinks is never what you expect. This show is AMAZING - actually proving to be a pretty good travel documentary as well as a comedic documentary. When Karl treks the Inca Trail to Macchu Picchu for example, instead of glorying in the wonder of the view and the history of the place, he instead tells us of the torture of the 8 hour trek and how he can't see anybody wanting to go there for a holiday. Ricky and Steve contact him frequently during his travels to set him up with arrangements designed to wind up their friend- an angry Karl is a joy to behold! If you are already a Karl Pilkington fan, you will love this. If you're not - you NEED to watch this!Report this review
Karl pilkington is hilarious, such a good programme to watch and such a good comedy. I hope there will be another series.Report this review
Whilst I was expecting that Karl was to be crucified by Stephen and Ricky - their bullying antics are legendary to those that have followed the trio from their early radio days - I wasn't expecting Karl to make some valid points. I was lucky enough to see the first few episodes at a screening at my local cinema so I was hooked on the series early on. The places Karl went to - the Seven Wonders of the World - were amazing, but it does beg the question as to why some of them are so revered. If you take away the history and it does leave you scratching your head why a rather big and long wall is visited by so many. The series does entertain you, and some of the things Karl sees (the stretching of a man's appendage); and does (camel riding, rodeo and the parade); leave you cringing, laughing and peering between your fingers. However, I don't think Ricky can extend this out, as is suggested in the looking back episode, as it has run its course and should be left that way.Report this review
Great series which doubles as a pretty informative (and honest!) travel guide and a dry british comedy. Karl Pilkington is much more funny than his two cronies and worth watching on screen. His observational humour is top knotch.Report this review
