In the second season of this hilarious series Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, co-creators of The Office and Extras help their friend Karl Pilkington (The Ricky Gervais Show) complete tasks from his bucket list...except the experience is never as easy or as fun as it seems. Gervais and Merchant find ways to arrange a few surprises along the way to keep things interesting. In the end, Pilkington ends up visiting more places and suffering more detours than he did in the first season! Find out what happens when an idiot goes abroad...again!
Karl is sent to spend time on a desert island in the South Pacific. Along the way, he attempts bungee jumping, land-diving, and arseboarding, and he meets a tribe that worships Prince Philip.
Karl takes the Trans-Siberian Express from Moscow to China. On the trip, he experiences a Russian steam room, undergoes Cosmonaut training, meets a magnetic man, gets buried alive, competes in a wrestling match, and visits a dwarf village.
Swim with Dolphins
Karl travels to Australia to swim with dolphins, but the trip doesn't turn out as expected. On the way, he stops in Thailand, where he meets some ladyboys and gets attacked by monkeys. In Australia, he swims with sharks instead of dolphins.
Karl sets off to Alaska to go on a whale-watching cruise. Before heading out to sea, he journeys across a frozen landscape on foot, by snowmobile, and by dog sled. The cruise aboard a working deep-sea fishing boat proves difficult for Karl.
Meet a Gorilla
Karl travels to Africa to see wild gorillas. Prior to visiting the gorillas, Ricky and Steve send Karl to teach at a school, rebuild a hut, go bungee jumping, visit a domesticated hippo, cook for a king, and go animal tracking.
Karl travels U.S. Route 66. Along the way, he participates in a high school production, a "snuggle party", gold mining, monster truck driving, Amish farming, and wing walking.
Climb Mount Fuji
Karl visits Japan where he trains to be a sumo wrestler, stays in a capsule hotel, decides to invent something, eats fermented Japanese fish, studies with a Zen Buddhist master, participates in a Japanese tea ceremony, and climbs Mt. Fuji.
