AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Despite being mercilessly mocked by Gervais and Merchant, the loveably pathetic Karl Pilkington remains the glue that holds The Ricky Gervais Show together.

Tv Season Info

Derived from the original XFM radio show and having broken world records as a podcast download, "The Ricky Gervais Show" has now been drawn into a superbly funny animated series featuring the musings of Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington. The animation combines the simplicity of Hanna-Barbera with the wackiness of Genndy Tartakovsky and is colorful and surreal, bringing the much loved series to life in a new light.

Critic Reviews for The Ricky Gervais Show: Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (16)

The series...suffers from crude animation that only gets in the way of enjoying Pilkington's far-fetched thoughts and Gervais' bewildered reactions. In this case, it's better to be heard and not seen.

The star is not the pompous Gervais or Merchant, who object and giggle throughout each segment, but the one member who never laughs or even smiles, yet entertains the heck out of us.

Far better than cartoon characters sitting around a table, would have been to place the real Gervais, Merchant, and Pilkington in the back booth of a smoky English pub.

Accompanied by such static imagery, Pilkington's unique idiocy loses its allure.

Pilkington's musings are sometimes amusing and always pointless, but the animation almost totally nullifies the first and intensifies the second.

The way "The Ricky Gervais Show" looks, Gervais comes across as someone attacking a poor, random fool who can't fight back.
