The record-breaking, chart-topping comedy phenomenon returns for a fifth season - all four episodes are here as a single download.
Ricky Gervais, of course, is the award-winning co-creator and star of The Office (upon which the current NBC hit series is based) and HBO's Extras. Steve Merchant, who also stars in Extras, is his long-time creative partner. Karl is a pile of protoplasm that mimics the functions of a human being.
Hilarious as per usual...
... but it's a big shame that the episodes aren't properly divided up, the episodes aren't staggered. It's a minor issue with an otherwise brilliant series. Steve is the genius behind Ricky, this is confirmed by this recording. Buy it immediately!
Not so funny!
I am a big Gervais fan and more so Merchant and Pilkington, I loved the XFM series and also the first few series of the podcast, but I feel this series is lacking something, I think I laughed once throughout. Pilkington has definitely lost his wit and Gervais is getting more annoying as he gets more famous!!
The issue with the price was a big shame aswell, I bought mine on audible and was charged €3.71 compared to €4.95 on iTunes!!
Hilarious As Always!
The Fifth series is every bit as funny as the others. Ricky, Steve and Karl have not lost their touch at all! Pity it's shorter than the first few seasons, I was hoping for another hour. Buy it on Audible though, it's cheaper. I can't recommend it enough - Comedy Gold!!!
