Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant & Karl Pilkington Here are three special episodes of
The Ricky Gervais Show, featuring those doyens of the medium, the eponymous multi-award winning Ricky Gervais; Steve Merchant (
Extras); and the round-headed idiot savant, Karl Pilkington.
Part I: Halloween Ghostly drivel abounds as Steve consults an SMS-based oracle, Karl experiences a kidney probing, Steve visits Bristol, Karl becomes a Godfather, and Ricky tells of some lighter moments at the morgue. (Includes a CD-giveaway contest that has already expired - sorry!)
Part II: Thanksgiving Karl is unfamiliar with the American public holiday mentioned in the show's title and launches a campaign for a calendar-free society. Ricky explains the origins of Thanksgiving, prompting him to ask Karl who might be a good choice for a present-day pilgrim father. Steve brings up the sterling work mice are carrying out in the name of medicine. Karl's hypochondria comes to the fore as he describes a recent visit to a leg-rubber who prescribes a toe-based soporific. More readings from Karl's diary; UFOs; the will to live; Madeira cake; Relative merits of gay and heterosexual men's pornographic magazines; Oxfam's extended product lines; and Karl is concerned about the shortage of new sounds. Plus there's a (now defunct, obviously) competition to win copies of Karl's book and the new CD box set.
Part III - Christmas Karl reflects on the year past and singles out an unlikely highlight; Steve stocks up on yuletide essentials; Karl advocates an anarchic Christmas and complains about his domestic chores; Karl's diary draws to a close with revelations of bothersome footwear, cravat-luggage, not-so-current affairs, bees, beds, and worry-holes; and Ricky provides an emotional exit en route to the orphanage.
