KARL!!!!!

    It's funny, but I think it's a bit contrived… I don't believe he's really that dumb… He's too sharp. It's a great show though… Although not as great as the UK's IT Crowd.

    It's pure brilliance, Perez - I've been salivating over seeing it ever since the promos for it first came out for it's Sky1 airings months ago. It's soooooo good!

    I can watch an episode (even the preview show) over & over & laugh like a loon each time. brilliant!

    These three..Gervais,Merchant and Pilkington…are my second favorite trinity ever.

    Can't wait! The previews are hilarious. I think I've listened to the podcasts and old XFM radio shows a million times (thanks Pilkipedia), so some new Karl material will be brilliant. Hope Australia gets the full version, not the censored Science channel version though. :-)

    It is the best show i have ever seen! I love Karl!! You have got to watch it!

    Whoever wrote this obviously hasn't watched the show… Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are in it briefly, and it stars Karl Pilkington! The China episode is great.
    It's hilarious, but I wouldn't want to watch it with American editing/censorship!

    What do you mean "good news for Ricky", as if he needs it. Everything he touches turns to gold. And Khalid, this may be massive in the UK but it just started in the US, so calm down.
