Here are three special episodes of
The Ricky Gervais Show, featuring those doyens of the medium, the eponymous multi-award winning Ricky Gervais; Steve Merchant (
Extras); and the round-headed idiot savant, Karl Pilkington.
Part I: Halloween
Ghostly drivel abounds as Steve consults an SMS-based oracle, Karl experiences a kidney probing, Steve visits Bristol, Karl becomes a Godfather, and Ricky tells of some lighter moments at the morgue. (Includes a CD-giveaway contest that has already expired - sorry!)
Part II: Thanksgiving
Karl is unfamiliar with the American public holiday mentioned in the show's title and launches a campaign for a calendar-free society. Ricky explains the origins of Thanksgiving, prompting him to ask Karl who might be a good choice for a present-day pilgrim father. Steve brings up the sterling work mice are carrying out in the name of medicine. Karl's hypochondria comes to the fore as he describes a recent visit to a leg-rubber who prescribes a toe-based soporific. More readings from Karl's diary; UFOs; the will to live; Madeira cake; Relative merits of gay and heterosexual men's pornographic magazines; Oxfam's extended product lines; and Karl is concerned about the shortage of new sounds. Plus there's a (now defunct, obviously) competition to win copies of Karl's book and the new CD box set.
Part III - Christmas
Karl reflects on the year past and singles out an unlikely highlight; Steve stocks up on yuletide essentials; Karl advocates an anarchic Christmas and complains about his domestic chores; Karl's diary draws to a close with revelations of bothersome footwear, cravat-luggage, not-so-current affairs, bees, beds, and worry-holes; and Ricky provides an emotional exit en route to the orphanage.
Worth every penny.
For those complaining about paying for it - don't be so cheap, do you work for free at your job? no, then shut up.
Still the best thing out there and well worth the small fee. People who complain about this small charge for fantastic comedy from the trio and stupid in my opinion. Sure it was once free and you missed out so be thankful that its still available
Why is everyone so angry?
SO WHAT? You have to pay for the podcast instead of getting it free. Think of the money it costed to make, and for itunes/apple to by rights to distribute it. Some of you are so touchy. If you want to buy it, do if you dont, dont. Simple as that. Stop trying to influence what people want to buy.
