Over the weekend, the Science Channel series An Idiot Abroad returned, and this time around Ricky Gervais' sidekick Karl Pilkington is crossing dream trips off a bucket list. The only problem isit's not his list.
Once again, Ricky and his pal Stephen Merchant are sending Karl off to exotic locales around the world, where he must check items off a list of "100 Things To Do Before You Die" - or what Karl calls "death stuff," and once again he's complaining his way through each journey.
In the premiere episode Karl is sent out to spend a night alone on a deserted island, but first stops off in New Zealand for a quick bungee jump. Of course, he couldn't go through with it so instead Ricky sent him to the island of Vanuatu in the South Pacific, where bungee jumping originated.

Of course, Ricky Gervais wasn't going to let his sidekick have an easy time of it, especially on his last trip, so he planned an excursion through the Amazon for Karl which included a visit with a local tribe who seemed to be as confused by Karl as he was by them.

Among the cheering crowd at Coldplay's live gig at London's Brixton Academy (a live music venue, not a school) we saw two people who, if they aren't best friends already, should be: Jay-Z and Ricky Gervais. Both stood off to the side and watched the band run through new tracks from their latest album "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends."
Longtime Coldplay or Carter/Gervais fans will know that both rapper and comedian have worked with Chris Martin, Jay on the 2006 song "Beach Chair" and Gervais on his TV show "Extras." But can Ricky rap? We wish we knew.
Didn't get into the exclusive gig? You can visit the BBC Television Studios in London six days a week for £9.50 a ticket (about $18), which gets you a guided tour and a peek into the studios. Pool party not included.
