If you think Ricky Gervais was annoying at the Golden Globes, on Twitter after the Globes and on Life's Too Short where he continued to talk about the Globes, you'll probably want to just stop watching this show.
The Ricky Gervais Show returns tonight on HBO for a second season with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant (co-creators of The Office and Extras) continuing to encourage the insane ramblings of friend Karl Pilkington. For those who have yet to catch an episode from Season 1, the show takes the record-breaking podcasts that originally aired about five years ago and sets them to animation, which allows us to see visuals of the bizarre things Karl comes up with in his head. So watch at your own discretion/amusement.
I love the simplicity of this. It's just animated versions of Ricky Gervais's colossally popular podcast with his buddies Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington. That's all it is. Really! And that's just dandy. Those podcasts are very funny and enjoyable, and so are cartoons, particularly cartoon versions of these guys, as it turns out.
