In this UK comedy series, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant (co-creators of The Office and Extras) send their friend Karl Pilkington (The Ricky Gervais Show) around the world — against his will.
Karl thinks he’s visiting the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, but along the way the “Little Englander” must endure camel rides, jungle treks, tribal customs and local oddballs while dining on toads and searching for a clean bathroom.
The first season of this unique series, An Idiot Abroad, has just been released on DVD. The two-disc set includes all eight episodes in their original, uncut format (which translates into some rough language and male nudity). Extras include a 23-minute preview show, which outlines Karl’s travels, and a lengthy review in which Karl shows exactly how much he’s learned from his journey (not much). Eight deleted scenes and a gallery of stills round out the package.

It’s a rainy Saturday; a good day to stay inside & watch tv (currently channel surfing for some reruns.)
