Ricky Gervais, of course, is the award-winning co-creator and star of The Office (upon which the current NBC hit series is based) and HBO's Extras. Steve Merchant, who also stars in Extras, is his long-time creative partner. Karl is a pile of protoplasm that mimics the functions of a human being.

"If Mr. Gervais made only podcasts for the rest of his career, I'd keep downloading." (The New York Times)
I've downloaded all Ricky-Stephen-Karl audio books, love these guys, have to say they are some of the most funny comedians, well, can't really call Karl a comedian but anyhow... download it, you'll love it.

I am perhaps spoiled by the length and fairly consistent humour of the first season of the Ricky Gervais podcast. It was quite lengthy, and fairly consistently hilarious.
To be fair, Season five is definitely funny, and for those who feel bad for Karl from time to time, it is nice to see Ricky and Steven get their share as well.
Sound quality, as always is excellent. Generally funny content. Karl seems to be getting wiser, which makes him stand up for himself more effectively even if we do miss his riduculously bizarre ideas and assumptions.
For those who heard all four previous seasons, I would compare it in quality to Season 3, definitely it is better than season 2.
Perhaps the most telling line, though, comes near the start of the file, when they are having an abortive start to the recording session and after some discussion about whether people should have to pay for such crap (forget the exact quote, might have been "drivel") Karl says something like "don't worry, we'll leave this bit out if we have enough material. If people are hearing this, then it didn't go well".
I suspect that about summed it up. They got together, had a few laughs, but whatever tensions have been keeping them out of the studio until now must have limited the amount of content generated.
Well, that's my theory anyway. Can't complain about the price, only a couple of bucks, but definitely not worth an audible credit.
Anyone who has never heard them before should start with Season 1, it is their best material and is a lot of content for the buck.
Inane but hilarious as always. If you are new to The Ricky Gervais Show start with the earlier seasons to get a feel for the format. It started with a podcast so it's not quite like a book-on-tape or a radio show. The worst thing about the show is that there is never enough of it.
After listening to every podcast these three have recorded I feel like I can almost predict some of their responses. I find myself laughing outloud at some of their bickering and story telling. Well worth a listen.

Although, like the title says, I found this volume of the Ricky Gervais podcasts not quite up to par with their previous material, I still thought it was amazing. Definately worth your money.
This is the least funny in the Ricky Gervias show series. I have laughed repeatedly at the trilogy, but this one, just wasn't as funny.
The program is quite different in format from other talk shows. It is too strange for my taste. Too much emphasis on deviant behaviors (alternative life styles), in my opinion.
