Publisher's Summary

Here are three special episodes of The Ricky Gervais Show, featuring those doyens of the medium, the eponymous multi-award winning Ricky Gervais; Steve Merchant (The Office, Extras); and the round-headed idiot savant, Karl Pilkington.

Part I: Halloween
Ghostly drivel abounds as Steve consults an SMS-based oracle, Karl experiences a kidney probing, Steve visits Bristol, Karl becomes a Godfather, and Ricky tells of some lighter moments at the morgue. (Includes a CD-giveaway contest that has already expired - sorry!)

Part II: Thanksgiving
Karl is unfamiliar with the American public holiday mentioned in the show's title and launches a campaign for a calendar-free society. Ricky explains the origins of Thanksgiving, prompting him to ask Karl who might be a good choice for a present-day pilgrim father. Steve brings up the sterling work mice are carrying out in the name of medicine. Karl's hypochondria comes to the fore as he describes a recent visit to a leg-rubber who prescribes a toe-based soporific. More readings from Karl's diary; UFOs; the will to live; Madeira cake; Relative merits of gay and heterosexual men's pornographic magazines; Oxfam's extended product lines; and Karl is concerned about the shortage of new sounds. Plus there's a (now defunct, obviously) competition to win copies of Karl's book and the new CD box set.

Part III - Christmas
Karl reflects on the year past and singles out an unlikely highlight; Steve stocks up on yuletide essentials; Karl advocates an anarchic Christmas and complains about his domestic chores; Karl's diary draws to a close with revelations of bothersome footwear, cravat-luggage, not-so-current affairs, bees, beds, and worry-holes; and Ricky provides an emotional exit en route to the orphanage.

    "Genius x 3... but audio could be better"
    Any additional comments?

    I love the raw, spontaneous nature of their exchanges... and thanks to the animated HBO series, I could picture much of this in my head as well... but the audio needs balancing. Ricky's laugh is SO loud, and Karl's talking sometimes so mumbled, that it is difficult to find a good volume.

    "I still can't figure out if he's for real"
    Would you listen to The Podfather Trilogy - Season Four of The Ricky Gervais Show again? Why?

    Not really, these are a one shot deal for me, a bit like when someone tells you a joke, it's not as good the second time.


    Would you recommend The Podfather Trilogy - Season Four of The Ricky Gervais Show to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes and I do immediately after I listen


    What three words best describe the narrator’s voice?

    There are three of them, Ricky has a strange laugh, Karl is monotone ...I don't like Steve at all


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    THE KARL SHOW...with Ricky and steve

    "Wish I listened to these sooner"

    As with the previous ones, this season of the Ricky Gervais Show was funny, with lots of moments in which I couldn't help but wonder if Karl's dialogue is scripted. He is a psychological experiment in podcast form.

    "Simply Amazing"
    Any additional comments?

    Although this season of Ricky Gervais' podcast doesn't QUITE meet the incredibly high standards previously set in previous editions, it's still solid gold.
