Amazon Instant Video
1. Space Monkey Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant briefly explain the ongoing experiment of turning their pointless conversations with friend and colleague Karl Pilkington into an animated series - and then settle down to pointlessly discuss a range of topics.
2. Knob at Night Stephen provides conversation fodder in the form of fan emails, leading to discussions about a lion that laid waste to Cambodian midget fighters. Karl shares his experiences of being conned when he's given in to his charitable instincts.
3. Charity Karl revisits his concept for improving the life cycle. Pilkington also shoots holes in the practice of donating a goat to an African family in lieu of giving a holiday gift, and finds flaw with the assumption that space travel is pleasurable.
4. Dolphins Karl defends facials as more reasonable than enemas, and the friends discuss the customs of tribes in Papua New Guinea. Fan email raises the specter of armed dolphins and, in Monkey News, Karl relays the tale of a lonely monkey brought home by a zookeeper.
5. Glass Houses Ricky and Stephen challenge Karl's interpretations of famous sayings such as, "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones." Stephen questions Karl on what he's learned since his New Year's resolution to learn something new every day.
6. Cobblers Karl considers what body part he could do without and explains why he likes to do the dishes. Other headier topics include Descartes and Plato's untimely demise, as well as Karl's feelings about the usefulness of the saying "A stitch in time saves nine."
7. The Diary Karl is back from holiday where he decided to start a diary. Ricky begs to read some of it, revealing a new invention Karl has come up with: A watch that counts down the days and time to one's death.
8. Nuts Responding to fan emails, Karl is put on the spot about whether he would choose Ricky or Stephen to rescue from a sinking ship. Other topics include: face transplants, Karl's lessons for children and suggestions for redesigning various creatures.
9. The Jockey In "Questions for Karl," the anointed pundit discusses time travel and adult diapers. Stephen reads entries from Karl's diary, which entertain Ricky immensely. In Monkey News: A 1950s gangster was duped into using a monkey as jockey in an important race.
10. The Fight Karl discusses his unusual approach to teaching. Examples of discussion topics include a dishwasher being found on Mars and dinosaurs as a form of population control. In Monkey News: A man with failing eye sight who ends up at a chimp doctor.
11. Beetles Topics include Karl's Valentine's Day advice, interpreting Wittgenstein and the rights of fish. Stephen and Ricky explain Kafka's 'Metamorphosis,' and Karl ponders life as a beetle. In Monkey News: Karl announces this will be the final segment.
12. Noises Stephen and Ricky have Karl complete the 'Inside the Actor's Studio' questionnaire which leads to lively discussion about worm and flower cognition. Karl ponders organ donation in light of the possibility of an afterlife. Stephen reads from Karl's Diary.
13. Freaks Karl ponders his entry interview with God at the Pearly Gates. Stephen reads from Karl's Diary hi-lighting alien mind reading and whether having one's head on backwards is harder than having one's hands reversed. Karl offers his top five list of freaks.

It is a wonderful, far too short-lived show. The humor lies in the genuine, but completely oddball, outlook on life of Karl Pilkington. Read morePublished 6 months ago by William R A Rush
