    So did anyone watch this?

    About to start the first episode. Massive podcast and Karl fan so i'm looking forward to it really!

    May of course be total shite.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    I watched it, probably worth it in the end. I especially enjoyed his comment comparing the length of the great wall to that of the M6.

    I don't think you can help but like it if you like Karl.. Stephen sends him on the trip to broaden his mind, Ricky sends him on the trip to piss him off, the viewer gets a bit of both (mainly Ricky's version) :)

    It amazes me at how many podcasts they did and it never got old. I listened to them countless times. Iíll be certainly watching this at some point.

    Watch it mate I loved it!

    I think you have to have had listened to Karl before to find it really funny. Already knowing him made it just brilliant :D

    Check out Ricky Gervais' old XFM shows too if you haven't already, you can find them on torrent sites.

    I find it weird that Steve Merchant refers himself to Steve Merchant when leaving a voicemail to his mate.

    That's pretty much on the button, I reckon. Karl's so much more normal without that stupid idiot gurning and yelping in the background.

    Yeah I kind of get the feeling Karl is actually a very good actor. I think he is far more clued up than is being portrayed. Still a very funny programme.

    Felt really sorry for Karl yesterday. Although he was obviously ill he gave everything a go and seemed impressed with the Taj Mahal when he finally got there.

    Making him stay in that crap honeymoon suite seemed unnecessarily cruel.

    He's certainly not stupid, but I think a lot of his reactions in the programme are genuine.

    Fantastic programme, really makes me laugh and Karl's a genuinely likeable and funny bloke.

    I dont think he's acting as such, he's just a normal fella with some bonkers opinions and ideas.

    I know someone very similar to him. He was on about terrorists using bomb rigged cats in hot air balloons the other night and I almost pissed myself laughing. Had to be there I suppose... :)

    Anyone who thinks he's acting hasn't listened to the podcasts :p

    He's got to be acting. The entire premise of his comedy is that people are completely taking the piss out of him and laughing at him the whole time. He'd be the most demoralised man in the world.

    I've never felt this lost.

    Not even in Wales :)

    Only seen the first one, but enjoyed it. Not quite as hysterical as the radio shows and podcasts, but funny nonetheless.

    Those half formed eggs actually taste pretty good with some salt and vinegar. Supposed to be really good for you too.

    Not sure what to make of this series, its funny but its not really informative or interesting in any way, I learn more about KP than I do about the countries.
