Put Science’s ‘An Idiot Abroad’ on Your Bucket List

An Idiot Abroad 2Two words: Karl Pilkington. Yes, that’s right, Ricky Gervais’ favorite round-headed friend is returning to Science on Saturday, January 21, at 10pm ET/PT in An Idiot Abroad 2: The Bucket List.

After following Karl to the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World in the first season (and spending Saturday night’s Tweeting along with fellow fans for Science), I know there’s no better cure for the winter blahs than a dose An Idiot Abroad and Karl’s unique perspective on the world. This time around, Gervais and Stephen Merchant present our friend Karl with a bucket list of experiences to have before one dies, giving him the chance to pick; of course, this doesn’t mean that Ricky and Stephen don’t have a few unexpected twist and turns for our fearful traveler.

In the first episode, Karl seeks relaxation on a desert island in the South Pacific and, as you’ll see in the clip below, he first ends up making some new friends.

And, as I alluded to earlier, Karl will have you laughing and wanting to share his thoughts on the world with others. So Science has developed a handy An Idiot Abroad Social To-Do List, including a new set of stickers you can earn when you check in on GetGlue and an addicting weekly SideShow experience on Miso. Enjoy traveling the world with Karl!
