Yay!!

Just listening to Warwick and Karl being interviewed on Absolute and it was hilarious. Can't wait to see this!! Here's hoping that Sharky wants to watch it


You're damn right he does!  Tivo is all set for it, so you don't even have to worry if you're delayed

I am vexed that I cannot watch this. Will have to wait for the Blu on Boxing Day. Annoyed.

Can't wait! Does anyone know how many episodes this one is? I seem to remember hearing it's only a couple but I'm not sure.

Loved it.

Karl with the jet pack and Warwick trying to get out the boat after saying "Remember Karl, dignity" had me in stitches.

Yeah fantastic stuff. It really works when he's got someone there with him. I loved it when Warwick was up with the balloons and the director was saying 'not too high Karl' but he was loving it. Apparently the next one is more of a straight documentary and the last, in Gervais' words, is fucking mental.

Another great episode. The funniest bit was the Bollywood dancing in the dressing room. It was almost a dance off! And the circus was great too. As a long time fan and listener on Pilko is was great to witness his encounter with the spider woman. His questioning was perfect.

Also, am I the only one who's beginning to think Warwick is a little bit of a dick? He just seems a little bit up himself.

I think Karl has become really comfortable in front of the camera now - it's great to see him having fun a few times as well as just moaning.

There was a moment in the last episode when he said something about they're obviously only wanting to have his name on the credits or something to that effect. Reminded me of 'Life's Too Short'.

I thought the third episode was the best of them all! It was so mentally funny. Personal favourites were when they were talking about Warwicks nuts at the end and when Karl was banging on about Warwick getting his disabled badge revoked for climbing the stairs

I've really enjoyed this series, it's worked having someone with Karl and I think they both really enjoyed themselves in the end. I've never seen Karl smile so much.

I hope they rethink calling it a day and have one more series, it's too funny not to keep doing. Maybe they could have somebody else along with Karl. I dunno, I just think it's sad it's ending.

Looking forward to the final episode this Friday which is basically Episode 3 with audio commentary! Going to be great!

As usuall Ricky tries to fuck KP at every point oh here's where Warricks staying & here's Karls thing is Karl knows him so well, it'd actually be more of a surprise if he'd give him somewhere nice to stay still he gets his own back by not doing the drop of the building gotta admire him though no matter how much grief he gives him Karls never ever going to do it.

"I'm not going to wank off a panda" has to be a contender for line of the series

I agree that this was the best of the series.  I think that the general bad feeling between Karl and Warwick that had set the tone for the first two episodes coming to a head on the train became really cathartic, and certainly by the time they reached China there seemed to be a closer understanding between the two.    Warwick had come across as a bit of a diva a couple of times, but I found the scene on the temple steps to be quite moving - you could really sense his frustration at the limitations his disability imposes on him.

Karl travelling with Ricky or Steve, now that would be fantastic.

Karl comparing Warwick to a Henry Hoover was my highlight, shame it was only three episodes long

Episode 3 is amazing, I love that Karl watches porn for research purposes.

"I will kick a panda in the bollocks if I have to" is the new "I could eat a knob at night"

I think I prefer Karl on his own, but watching him and Warwick bond (or at least tolerate each other) is really quite sweet. When they reached the temple and Karl was actually impressed by it and when he made Warwick eat a bollock I couldn't help but think how far he has come since series 1. (Although he probably did that because he wanted Warwick to get the shits).
