From the creators of 'The Office' and 'Extras' comes the new HBO comedy series, The Ricky Gervais Show. The series is an animated version of Gervais' podcasts that earned a spot in The Guiness Book of World Records for the most downloads. It is voiced by Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, and colleague and friend Karl Pilkington whose offbeat musings inspire many of the storylines which include the merits of 20th century inventions; Karl's suggestion for population control; how philosophy has evolved through the ages; Karl's round head; and his thoughts on charity.

Just watched the series on TV and am definately going to invest in this comedy classic. Think it should be called The Karl Pilkington Show really as he is hilarious. If you are a Ricky Gervais fan then it's a must if you're not then I reckon you'll still find it very funny as my wife isn't keen on RG but she found it funny. Monkey News and Karl's Diary are brilliant, buy it.

 Great animation...

In response to the other reviewers here, the animation is the stuff of legend, hardly 'basic'. The Hannah-Barbera style here makes you think of The Flintstones or The Jetsons and that's a testament to the animation that it transcends the show itself in terms of familiarity. Here though, is a marriage made in heaven. The style blends perfectly with the original podcast material, bringing to life Karl's weird world. I don't know how they've made it funnier, but they have. I can only assume Ricky and Steve had a big say on how the animation played out. Brilliant stuff.

i totally love this show, i cry laughing every time, the drawings are soo funny also, because they are so bad, but in a good way, it actually gives it it's feel, Karl is a total legend, this is a must buy!!

 The Karl Pilkington Show

I have to say that Karl is a comedy genius without even realising it, this should really be called "The Karl Pilkington Show" and I seriously think he should tour.

If you're a fan of the podcasts, then this is a no brainer. The classic 'Hannah-Barbera' look of the animation is perfect, adding another dimension to the exisiting material.
