Brilliant!, Feb. 11 2012
It's amazing how brilliant this show about an "idiot" is. I think it's because of his unique (and often depressing) outlook on life that keeps it (and him) consistantly interesting because you never know quite what is going to come out of his mouth. At points his thoughts might seem offensive, but it's pretty clear that he is more naive than anything and speaks his mind without fear of concequence, which is another thing that makes it so interesting.
Adding to the humour of Karl's character is the fact that producers Steve and Ricky constantly put him into situations that sill challenge, annoy, and sometimes endanger him. They also like to make him as uncomfortable as possible, whether that means making him sleep at a dingy hostel or hanging out with transexuals.
All I can say is, if you're reading this wondering whether to buy it, the answer must be yours... and the answer must be YES!
