SICK OF IT – SERIES 1
After Karl loses his girlfriend and way in life he finds himself living with his elderly American auntie. As he struggles to deal with the modern world his closest companion is the voice in his head, the grumpy, misanthropic alter ego who takes the form of his doppelgänger – the uncensored version of Karl that says what he really thinks without the risk of offending others. As Karl attempts to get his life in order and move on, the voice in his head appears to criticize him, offer advice, and dispense his witty words of wisdom.
