And some of the Rockbusters, strawberry floating hell. Christ! De Berg!


The Ricky Gervais show is also quality.

So Karl, what would you do if it was the end of the world?

I always wanted to kick a duck up the arse.

This episode of the Xfm shows is amazing:

I did this by severing my real arms and replacing them with super-human cyborg arms.

The last episode of Moaning of Life which was meant to be on tonight is now not on the schedule as it's about death and part of it is in the Philippines.

Synopsis:-

5/5. Karl ends his journey with a look at differing attitudes to death. He visits Ghana, where he shops for a customised coffin, before attending his first-ever funeral and the accompanying parade. He also meets members of a community in the Philippines who live and work with the deceased, is taught how to cry and deal with grief by a professional mourner in Taiwan, and returns to Britain where he creates a memorial. Last in the series.

I missed episode 2 so this just gives me even more reason to buy the DVD.

Episode 2 was excellent. Saw a slightly different side to Karl than normal.

Wait, there has only been 3 episodes right? I saw Monkeyman's post and it was saying it's the last in the series....

3 has been by far the best one, didn't really think much of the first two. Looking after that kid had me in stitches :lol:

The fifth was cancelled because it was in the Philippines, but Sky have said they'll show it another time.

Hope they don't wait too long to air the final one, loved every episode so far. Better than An Idiot Abroad I'd say.

Unless I died for a week, have no idea how I've missed the money one and I record them on Sky+ too!

So the death one was the one which was cancelled?

1x05- Pilkingtong and the Twix coffin.

:lol:

Yes and it becomes clear why. At the end of the show Karl suggests a massive bucket coffin where people killed in disasters can be dumped.

Have some fun with it! Doesn't have to be miserable just because the whole family's been wiped out.

When was the death one on / how did you see it?

I did this by severing my real arms and replacing them with super-human cyborg arms.
