Wherein Karl worries about the proctology
Friday's Ricky Gervais Show isn't among the season's best, but hey, even a bad Gervais episode still beats the snot out of other underachieving show. (I'm looking in your direction, The Office and Saturday Night Live.)
While there is no more Monkey News - Karl ended the segment the previous week by telling the story of a chimp eye doctor, a truly great way to end it - they have adjusted by expanding his notebook feature and the general conversation segments. Both remain outstanding. This week, Karl was worried about dying during a proctology exam, and thus having to have his doctor's hand up his anus throughout eternity as a ghost. They also talked about a germ that eats chocolate. Good times!
Really, I don't have much else to say about the show. It is definitely an acquired taste; you have to like animation and podcasts. And if you like The Ricky Gervais Show, then do yourself a favor and check out the Loveline cartoons. They are along the same lines, and just as incredible, although there are only four of them.
