"The Ricky Gervais Show" and "The Life and Times of Tim" (HBO) Friday, Feb. 19
Steve Dildarian's slacker animated gem "The Life and Times of Tim" made HitFix's Top 10 list for 2008 and we're looking to see what sorts of embarrassment await the hard luck lead character when he returns to HBO. This time around, he'll be paired with the new "The Ricky Gervais Show," a 13-episode animated comedy based on the "Office" creator's regular off-beat podcasts with is longtime collaborator Stephen Merchant and colleague and friend Karl Pilkington. Both "The Life and Times of Tim" and "The Ricky Gervais Show" are produced for HBO by Media Rights Capital, if that sort of thing happens to interest you.
