I bought this as a gift only to find out that it is not compatible with US Blu-ray players. I was excited to get as it was the perfect gift, but turned out to be a huge disappointment. Do not buy this if you have a US version Blu-ray player as it will not play and the product information does not specify that this is the case.

This is a very entertaining series. Do not assume it will play on your BluRay player in the U.S. even though it is supposed to be Region nuetral. Sony players will NOT play this. We have both Sony and Samsung BluRay players, and the Samsung WILL play it without any issues.

The series 1 shows have aired on the Science channel and series 2 is currently in process. Ricky Gervais has a winner in this series. It's hilarious, if you can play it.

<laughing>

While the bloom is off the rose, the edge not as sharp - there's really nothing like the phenomenon known as Karl Pilkington. Truly incomparable with any other human on our planet. And that's a good thing. At least, as long as you're a fan.

The guy does seem to possess an innate ability to get under the skin of some people - rubbing them wrong doesn't even begin to describe it. Don't even think to ask an Indian or Mainland Chinese expatriate what they think and/or feel about our man. Been involved in several unhappy discussions which consistently ends in a war of flaming posts.

The unappreciative aside, I think, as both Gervais and Merchant have already noted, there are many folks who can readily relate to Karl, his missives and misgivings. At the very least, he presents an alternative to the pompous globe-trekking narcissists that readily compare their "life quotient" to belittle you anytime the opportunity presents itself. Already played that game with several self-absorbed knuckleheads, and Karl gives a voice to those less inclined to dive into global flotsam, then proclaim it good 'just because'.

There's more than a bit of self-hate in what I hear and read in people who instantly brand the US and UK as somehow less informed, less self-aware and less spiritual - essentially culturally inferior. In all honesty, if I offered cow urine as a health drink, I can foresee about a dozen lawsuits before I even put labels onto the product. That's more than a bit of bias being dressed up as intolerance and slopped onto us so-called cultural Philistines.

And an excellent example of that is when Karl is 'volunteered' to do charity work in a South African shanty town made up of tens of thousands of huts.

Like others, I was apprehensive about buying this DVD set because of possible DVD Region incompatibility. I own an Insigna NS-WBRDVD (first model) and these popped right in and played beautifully. As for the series itself, it is one of the most hilarious documentaries I have ever seen. Karl makes me laugh out loud every episode. I am so glad these were finally available in the US, in Blu-Ray, and as a complete series. If you too are a fan of the show and have the right DVD player (see other reviews for more models), then go ahead and treat yourself. I even bought mine used (just in case did not work) and the set I got was pristine. Glad I saved the $20 or so dollars for "Used - Like New."

This is my absolute favorite travel series of all time (followed closely by Drinking Made Easy/Three Sheets/Have Fork Will Travel and No Reservations/The Layover). This version plays on my Insignia NS-WBRDVD2 like a champ, and looks FANTASTIC in Blu-Ray HD. I'm so happy to have the unedited for US TV version. This series is great - I've turned my parents and grandparents on to Karl Pilkington, and now the whole family loves him. If you have a 50hz capable player, buy this set and ENJOY. You will not regret the purchase.

I had no idea that this blu ray would not work with my ps3. Never had this problem before. I gave it 3 stars because the show makes me cry its so funny. But now I have to save up money to buy a blu ray player before I can watch it. No wonder its on sale.

This blu ray will only work on certain players here in the States. I highly recommend viewing Matt Wilson's review for a list of compatible players. I own a Samsung BD-C6800, and it works like a charm on that. I know many people tend to use their Sony PS3's as their primary blu ray players, and i'd assume Sony locks out non-Region 1 blu ray's to protect their video game market(s) here.

As for the show itself. Hilarious. If you are a fan of dry/witty humor, then this is right up your alley. Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant (creators of The Office) send their mutual friend, Mr. Karl Pilkington all over the world and we, the audience get to witness first-hand his encounters. If you are unsure if this is something you'd enjoy, there are loads of videos on youtube you can browse to get a better understanding. The discs aren't necessarily loaded with extras, you get some deleted scenes and what not. One other minor bonus (to me, anyways) is the fact you're watching the 'practically' unedited version of this show on these blu ray discs. The Science Channel version that airs in the States, tends to edit out every swear word.
