The Ricky Gervais Guide To...LAW AND ORDER
The seventh in a new series of all-encompassing excursions.
Join Ricky Gervais, Steve Merchant, and Karl Pilkington as they ruminate on all aspects of law and order. Justice and morality get a look in, with criminality galore. Ricky tells tales of gold bullion, London villains and an L.A. cop. Steve discloses a past transgression, and Karl has a stab at hostage negotiation.
In this episode: Karl's great escape; Capital punishment - an exhaustive debate; Karl's confectionery confession; Steve invites trouble on the tube; Ricky discovers a useful guide to the 10 commandments; Steve's anti-mugging strategy; Ricky's bullion robbery and Karl's daylight robbery; The Bodyguard, followed by The Negotiator.
Always check your sources
Why did Ricky quote his Ten Commandments piece from landoverbaptist.org? Either he was ignorant about this spoof website or had other motivations. This is like quoting "The Onion" for political news.
Not their best
I am a huge fan of this series, but this one was certainly not their crowning achievement. Karl himself admits early on that he has no interest in the topic, and therefore, Steve and Ricky tend to drive most of the conversation. The result is not as funny as most other episodes. I'll still buy their next, however.
Guys, I love you more than my firstborn child ( or will most likely, as I don't have one yet) but this one wasn't my favorite. Karl is at his best when the conversation is mutual.... not when you just throw him bits and ask him to perform :)
However, I will buy and continue to buy, everything you do ever because it at its worst is still more amazing than anything on the planet comedy wise.
