Xfm Series 2 ran from August 2002 to August 2003. Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant were back from filming the second series of The Office, and Karl Pilkington was back having recently produced Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's Xfm show.

Soon things were back to normal, with Ricky and Steve equally entertained and scornful of Karl's peculiar outlook on life. And as well as through his opinions and anecdotes, Karl also contributed to the series with several features such as 'Rockbusters', 'Monkey News' and 'Educating Ricky'.

Episode 14 Aired 23 November 2002

23 November 2002 features even more classic Karl stories including the time his Dad's mate video taped the school play and was heard off camera saying "He looks a right twat" as well as the classic story of his holiday to Turkey where Suzanne was getting harassed by the midget waiters. It also sees the continuation from last week's Rockbuster's clues gradually heading downhill as the clues now require the artist names to be said in certain accents or are a specific way of pronouncing the answer, much to the annoyance of Ricky and Steve.
