An Idiot Abroad 2: Blu Ray Review

An Idiot Abroad 2: Blu Ray Review

Rating: M
Released by BBC And Roadshow Home Ent

Moaning Pom Karl Pilkington returns in another series of the travelogue which pushes him out of his comfort zone and miserably into the rest of the world - all with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant pulling the strings.

In the first series, Karl saw the Seven wonders of the world - and this time, he's off to fulfill a bucket list of things to do. And he's not happy. Stopping off with ladyboys in Thailand, bungee jumping in New Zealand (not completed) and land diving - these are just some of the highlights - but as ever, the humour comes from Karl being pushed out of his comfort zone and into situations he could never imagine.

Throughout the moaning and the whingeing there's a really good travel series here, with many of us getting to experience a world from our armchair - and there's an affability to Karl which is contagious.

Extras: Deleted scenes,  and a featurette on one of Karl's ideas.
