An Idiot Abroad Reviews & Ratings

60 minutes

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are outraged that Karl has written off the Seven Wonders claiming they’re all "a bit s**t" having never seen any of them with his own eyes. They’ve thrown down the gauntlet to send him around the globe to force him out of his comfort zone. Stephen wants the experience to broaden Karl’s mind and change his outlook on the world. Ricky wants Karl to hate every minute of it for his own amusement. Dispatched on what many would term a journey of a lifetime, the 'little Englander' will be putting his misgivings to one side as Karl finds out for himself what the fuss is about. He will travel to the Great Wall of China, Christ the Redeemer in Brazil, Petra in Jordan, Machu Picchu in Peru, Chichen Itza in Mexico, the Taj Mahal in India and the Great Pyramids of Egypt. Meanwhile Gervais and Merchant will be keeping a watchful eye from London, monitoring every step of Pilkington’s journey. The conclusion of the series will see the weary traveler returning home to report on his findings.

This is an outstanding, hilarious travel show... you'll never see a more surly and reluctant traveler. He actually does have a good time every now and then, despite his best efforts.

A hilarious show where poor Karl Pilkington is constantly ridiculed by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. In every episode, Karl goes outside of his comfort zone and faces the a new location with plenty of challenges along the way. Definitely worth watching!

Karl Pilkington is often unintentionally zen in his pronouncements. There's no TV character I'd rather travel with.

I've been to most of these places but didn't get to stay long, not while on a mission OP in the Navy. I'll get back there one day I hope.

Karl Pilkington is a genius among personalities. The believability that he is in fact utterly miserable while doing some of the most desirable things on earth is hilarious. Is there anything this guy likes?! Oh ya, monkeys. Hilarious! One of the funniest shows I have ever seen.

Sometimes ignorance is bliss. But more often than not it isn't.

I thought this show was excellent. Not only did I actually learn things about other countries and cultures, but it was just so funny. I love things that are funny yet informative.
