An Idiot Abroad: Not Just Americans Are Ugly

Ricky Gervais is a terrible, terrible friend.  He played a rather expensive practical joke on his friend Karl, and the result is An Idiot Abroad, a series in which a stay-at-home-Brit experiences the wonders of travel.

So far, I'm learning things.  I'm learning it's not just Americans who can be remarkably close-minded.  I'm learning there's virtually nothing you can't put on a stick and eat.  And I'm learning more about how fortune tellers suck in the gullible.  It seems to have quite a bit to do with scaring the bejezus out of them from the get-go.

It's hysterical.  I think I'll be watching the rest.
