England is getting a new TV show on Sky TV, whatever THAT is, called An Idiot Abroad in which Karl Pilkington, friend and whipping post to Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, is sent around the world to make slack-jawed faces of weary disbelief. And guess what: it looks GREAT. (Trailer after the jump.) This is not the first time that this show has been mentioned on this website, for I was also excited about it when it was called Karl Pilkington’s Seven Wonders of the World. You may recall that as the day I quit Videogum and moved to England. It was terrible over there, guys! I don’t know anything about rugby, and all the bars close at 7. Needless to say, it didn’t work out. Or as they say in England: Oy! Crisps! Anyway, now that I am back in the land of elastic waistbands and chili fries (see also: Mandy Moore), I’m just waiting for someone to shove this show in a duffel bag and send it to me. Don’t tell me they don’t have duffel bags in England. That can’t possibly be true. Where do they shove all the QUID from their HEISTS?
Hand this show over, Queen. I’ll look you in the face and say it. I’ll turn my back on you all day long until you give it.
Really want to watch this show on the telly! Innit!
