Guilty Pleasure...

My new favorite show is currently airing on The Discovery Channel and it’s called “An Idiot Abroad”. Basically the show follows the not-so-adventurous Karl Pilkington while he visits the Seven Wonders of the World, at the persuasion of his friends Ricky Gervais and Steve Merchant. 

Steve’s hope is for Karl to broaden his mind with travel and cultural experiences. Ricky’s hope is that Karl will hate every minute of it…and he does. 

The misadventures of Karl are unbelievably funny. I’ve laughed until I’ve cried during every single episode. It’s priceless…I guess I enjoy watching the misfortunes of others. What can I say?  I should point out that some of Karl's insights are brilliant.  This show is so well done - at least in my opinion.

I will have to check it out! I have been looking for shows to watch since we have cable with expanded channels again! I do love some of those travel shows like Anthony Bourdain and that Samantha lady. Good stuff.
