An Idiot Abroad (Series)

Employing the classic 'fish out of water' template as the basis for this series, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant exploit (for lack of a better word) the truly unique Karl Pilkington on a tour of the New Seven Wonders of the World (sans the Colosseum replaced with the Great Pyramids) for the Sky1 travel documentary "An Idiot Abroad".  (For those in the States, the series is broadcast on the Science Channel.)  The strength of the show and the only compelling reason to watch it is Pilkington, and his utterances and thoughts do not disappoint.  Gervais and Merchant realize that there's no capital worth more than human capital, and we're lucky enough for them to share this one-off bit of humanity.

Below, you'll find and enjoy Episode 1 of Season 1.
