Are the Seven Wonders really as wondrous as everybody says? Karl Pilkington doesn't think so, but then Karl is no Michael Palin. He's more of a 'Lanzarote man' to be precise, who hates travelling and prefers throwing sand at crabs or, at a push, eating English food in Spain. In his mind, Pisa is 'badly built ...it's a hazard', the Pyramids have 'a crap design ...all the space at the bottom and nowt at the top' and the Taj Mahal 'is probably **** at the back'. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant are outraged, goading Karl to broaden his mind and visit each of these famous sites for himself. Will a close encounter with Christ the Redeemer in Brazil or a trek along the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu be enough to change their friend? For Ricky and Stephen it is a genuine social experiment. It's full of the unusual observational skills and counter-intuitive logic that the millions of Ricky Gervais podcast fans have learnt to love.

Don't watch it then? Moron. Obviously missed the entire point, and if you have not noticed Karl Pilkington is close friends with those two "bullies".

Oh and btw whoever enjoyed this and has NOT heard any of the podcasts etc. go get em' and also get the XFM shows as they are even better than the podcasts

Still waiting for the 'made up character' comment
+1 on the XFM broadcasts that are all available online.

+1 the xfm shows are a must! I almost crashed the car on several occasions listening to those!

bit harsh? Hardly a moron just because her view of it differs from yours.

Karl is funnyn but not as funny as Ricky thinks. Still a good series though.

Funny series this, not convinced Karl Pilkington is entirely the "victim" as is made out though - he knows what he is doing and plays the "character".

If you've not seen it try and watch The Ricky Gervais Show on E4 - animated version of their podcasts which are very funny.

Touched a nerve there, did I? Oh, and that's the correct way to use a question mark.

FWIW, I don't think it matters whether Pilkington is in on the joke or not (of course he is, I'm not daft), but the tone of the whole show is Gervais mocking someone who is not as smart as he is. It's just not my cup of tea. If that makes me a moron then so be it. I guess I'll have to live with this deficiency and hope people don't pick on me.

I don't particularly like Gervais anymore - I got a little bit annoyed with him calling Pilkington up during this series. I didn't mind so much with Stephen Merchant.

But put aside Gervais, this is a great show. Pilkingtion comes across as a genuine and rather cynical character.

And for what its worth, I think Stephen Merchant is actually smarter and funnier than Gervais. Just look at the rubbish that Gervais has produced without Merchant.

I'm not sure if its the same version (2disc), but Play.com have it at the same price - in case you want the quidco.

play.com/DVD…rch

I must have watched the non-funny version of this too , sad really.

If It's not funny then if I can stretch this to - It gives you an insight into other cultures, I enjoyed this rather than a documentary on countries/cultures program.
