    "Hilarious"

    How facts take this team off into diverse discussions and explanations is absolutely hilarious.

    "Not funny anymore"

    Its in decline, unfortunately Carl has lost the innocence that made his so engaging and brilliant. He has got full of himself in a way that exposes the mean-spirited sides of his personality.
    Now its just more London media, who are very satisfied with themselves, yapping.

    "Stupid funny!!!"

    This series of discussions makes me laugh out loud no matter where I am. I sometimes feel a little sorry for Karl, but he holds his own for the most part. While he's a little out there, I sometimes find myself thinking, wow, what an interesting way to look at things. I'm sure this series was put together to share Karl's strange take on life with the rest of the world, but I feel that Ricky sometimes forgets that. He often verbally attacks Karl for being an idiot. But Steve brings balance to the situation by insisting that he is interested to hear what Karl has to say. I love the dynamic between the three of them.
