Shit. Is this going to happen?
I'd be so happy.
like IAP series 2 was. Time to move on.
I have faith that Coogan has still 'got it'.
off the top of my head - that scene in his house, which is a building site, where the guy keeps leaning on his makeshift table. pure brilliance
is the Dante's central heating episode not series 2 as well? I'VE PIERCED MY FOOT ON A SPIIIKE!
I'll give it a fair shake. But I remember it being really disappointing. I actually stoped watching after a couple of episodes.
it was really quite bad
I've tried watching it many times on dvd and it just doesn't improve
half-written, crude, grossly warped versions of previous characters. it's just extremely disappointing.
obviously it still has quite a few amazing bits and pieces but it is way off the level of the first series, KMKYWAP and the radio shows
"Dan! Dan! Dan!" etc...
Or am I getting confused? I might be misguidedly badmouthing an entire series.
He goes round Dan's house and they want group sex.
Time to borrow both series off someone, I think.
genius, pure genius.
learn your Alan
you take YOUR foot off the spike!
you couldn't present a... a... a cat!
Movies of things that were good are NEVER good.
It'll be the first series of the american office.
=genius. Fact. Although I'm guessing by the fact you only specified the first series you know that. It's not too bad after episode one though.
Episodes after that were good.
apart from the very first one because it was identical to gervais/merchant's.
what have you been smoking?
Alan Partridge Series 2 is classic - much funnier than Series 1 - which was already very funny.
Bono actually has the largest collection of hatchbacks in Europe.
My brain seems to have filed all the funny bits under "Series 1", leaving me under the impression that Series 2 was a comedy desert. Dunno how or why. I'm still not sure whether a film's a good idea, though.
series two has the most quotable lines imho.
it's all genius!
"I wasn't - I was gonna do a cockney walk"
i just lost a pint of blood!
Series 2 is ok. Series 1 is a stone cold classic. Series 2 has it's moments, but no more than that.
Series 2 is easily far superior to the vast majority of sitcoms.
But the vast majority of sitcoms are shit.
Series 1 is in a different league entirely.
Knowing me knowing you > series 2.
finally someone who talks some sense
Series 2 is still very superior but it is basically Partridge for people who read Nuts magazine
take that back
sorry, i get a little evangelical when it comes to Alan.
I'd rather there be a holocaust for gingers than this film be released.
Coogan and Iannucci have denied this is going to happen several times. And if it does there's no way Patrick Marber would be co-writing it.
He's done loads of stuff with Coogan over the years. He co-starred in both Paul Calf video diarys.
if they just did another series
both series = comedy gold.
'What a funny story, ha ha ha Ha ha ha ha ha ha... ha ha ha ha. Wonder who got the power pack. Ha ha ha....
let's hope it doesn't spiral into pointless violence
i look forward to this
