Ricky Gervais is a terrible, terrible friend. He played a rather expensive practical joke on his friend Karl, and the result is An Idiot Abroad, a series in which a stay-at-home-Brit experiences the wonders of travel.
So far, I’m learning things. I’m learning it’s not just Americans who can be remarkably close-minded. I’m learning there’s virtually nothing you can’t put on a stick and eat. And I’m learning more about how fortune tellers suck in the gullible. It seems to have quite a bit to do with scaring the bejezus out of them from the get-go.
It’s hysterical. I think I’ll be watching the rest.
