Incredible that people are unable to actually sit and watch a whole programme without the need to "twitter" on about it while its on.
Why not wait until its finished then comment on it and you won't miss anything then?

If I watch something on tv I watch it .
I can be parted from my PC for hours on end without pain
good for you,,,,well done

You can never quite trust what direction Gervais goes in.

Karl is stealing every scene he is in.
Never got Karl Pilkinton. Is narrow mindedness supposed to be funny? I gave Idiot Abroad several chances because I wanted to like it but just found it boring.

And I wouldn't say he's stealing every scene - he's just himself in a wig.

Hmmm I'm not sure about it so far? I've only laughed once and feel maybe there are some cheap gags being pulled? Sitting in custard, falling in a pond......not reallly original comedy.
Yes not sure about the pratfalls.

Gervais seems to have put back on some of the weight he lost, he went Hollywood; lost weight, fake tan, had his eyebrows thinned but he never had his teeth fixed, he wasn't completely lost, and now he seems to have de-Hollywooded himself.

I'm a big believer that you're the weight you're meant to be anyway, almost everyone who loses weight puts it back on, see also David Mitchell and Stephen Fry.

Do you enjoy Christmas by any chance?

This is about as much as I can be bothered with a Digital Spy thread on Ricky Gervais. Later folks

Is this post supposed to be ironic?
No but as you didn't understand it I guess you're from the part of the population with the attenton span thats so short you can't sit and watch anything without feeling the urge to twitter on about it

I'm gay and think the entire cast of Glee should be publicly hung, drawn and quartered. SLOWLY!

Didn't Pilkington's character say that Derek lived in his flat with him though?

You obviously didn't understand your own post, as you're posting during the show, the very thing you claim is for imbeciles.

Unless you're banding yourself in with the imbeciles, which is perfectly plausible.

I always thought Ricky was an excellent dramatic actor when, as David Brent, he begged for his job back in The Office.

No , its on Tivo ready for later when I'll watch it all the way through without posting a comment.

Watching tv live is something I've not done for 25 years bar the odd news report

Not finding it laugh out loud funny, but I'm enjoying it as a programme!

Poor Derek!

Seeing a whole new side to Gervais. Some of the best TV I've seen in ages actually.

It almost feels like Roy Cropper is making a guest appearance in an episode of This is England.
