The Gervais Report
At the risk of sounding like an obsessive fan-ziner, I offer the latest on The Ricky Gervais Show.
Fortunately there will be no waiting period before the next group of episodes. Follow the directions on Ricky's Web site to find out how to get the latest set of shows (they should be available on iTunes as well). The show will no longer be free, but the cost appears to be nominal-- $7 for four episodes, I think. Considering how often I wind up laughing out loud on the the subway or in the gym (people must think I'm insane), it seems worth it.
The last episode of the first group offered shocking news-- Karl has put an end to Monkey News. Actually, I think it's a good idea. Comapred to the freshness and off-the-cuffness (what the hell, let's make up a word) of the rest of the show, this segment had grown a bit stale. Karl seemed to be losing his zest for the chimp tales and Ricky and Steve would spend the whole time trying to prove his stories false-- which we know already. I'm looking forward to seeing what else they can come up with to go along with Karl's Diary.
