You know i started watching it, but i just couldn't stomach it.

The concept of the show is good, but having to listen to the comedian back home and his "fake laughs" makes me want to puke.

Gervais is mildly annoying but Pilkington is funny

 Big fan here

 

Have the DVR set and cannot wait.If this one is half as good as the 7 wonders was it is a winner. Carl is a hoot and I'm sure they have some great surprises lined up for him.

You get annoyed by everything. Your one hyper-sensitive dude. Idiot Abroad is a good show, and I look forward to seeing it.

And he did the "Lower than Kiddie jump". Halarious when Ricky was comparing it to standing in place then falling. You would have broken the record of Karl's jump. He did get a hero's celebration though.

Pretty good kick off show

Last show was  halarious in Thailand.

Karl, dressed up as a ladyboy

Blindfolded kick boxing that was funny

Prison massage

When he goes to do what he wants to do seeing the monkeys. It does not work out well. They take his food and attack him.

I watched it for the 1st time when he went to Russia and got buried alive, tossed into G force machine, slept on a book shelf.

Been to that shithole miserable dreary country, (Tblisi and Moscow) These guys are exactly right.

Never go there unless you get paid a lot.

Actually was 1 show behind already watched Russia. Not very memorable. Whale watching episode was better though. That old eskimo lady driving Karl on the snowmobile  and he's trying to talk during the ride.

Hope it picks up. Still a good season so far and, better than a lot of other things on the tube.

I think Karl is really Pierre Woodman.

Season one was way better than season two. Do not think we see season three unless Karl needs more work and he passed his prostate exam.
