Ricky Gervais' travel show "An Idiot Abroad" hits US TV
In the first episode, Karl travels to China and expresses bafflement with Chinese street food, toilets, and even the Great Wall. The show's funniest moments come when he experiences moments of culture shock and weirdness common to even the most seasoned travelers. I'd love to see Karl's take on general travel problems - airport security, flying, and getting lost - as well as more of his interactions with local people around the world. He seems curious and open to the world, and has written a companion book for the series, which will culminate in an eighth episode with his thoughts and impressions about his travels.
An Idiot Abroad airs Saturdays at 10pm on the Science Channel and is available for download on iTunes. The next episode takes Karl to India to see the Taj Mahal.
