Talk About An Idiot Abroad
Fooled and flustered for a second time, reluctant traveler Karl Pilkington returns in Season 2 of An Idiot Abroad 2: The Bucket List
on Discovery Channel
. An eight-part follow-up to the smash-hit series that followed Pilkington - dragged kicking and screaming - on a quest to see the Seven Wonders of the World, his "friends" Ricky Gervais (THE OFFICE) and Stephen Merchant mastermind a new set of immersive challenges, urging Pilkington to check off experiences on the "things you need to do before you die" Bucket List.
Not that he thinks any
of this is a good idea...
At first, Pilkington grudgingly goes along with it - the sad sack is somehow deluded into thinking he's got some measure of control and input this time around. But he's dead wrong. See, it's not his
Bucket List they're working on...
Season two finds Karl on the desert South Pacific island of Vanuatu, on the Trans Siberian Express travelling from Russia to China, in Uganda meeting gorillas and more...
Karl says, "If I was on me deathbed, there's no way I'd want to be climbing Kilimanjaro."
Lucky for him, it is Japan's Mount Fuji that Ricky and Stephen have in mind.
