AN IDIOT ABROAD: THE BUCKET LIST MARATHON
Science Channel, 7:00 p.m. ET
For those who missed this wholly entertaining travel series the first time around, here’s a great opportunity to correct that oversight. Karl Pilkington, one of Ricky Gervais’ sometimes unwilling co-conspirators, is sent across the globe – sometimes to do and see what he wants, other times to have places and activities foist upon him. You won’t see many travel series where the host, for the most part, would rather not travel, but that’s the secret ingredient that makes An Idiot Abroad so much fun. That, and Pilkington’s unique perspective on things, which makes for one of the most honest international travel guides since Mark Twain’s The Innocents Abroad.
