Maybe it's finally time for me to return the VHS-tape my Brit friend lent me two years ago.

Aidan: Is that an original?

[Aidan is pointing to a large, airbrushed picture of a scantily-clad woman lying next to a motorbike, above the mantlepiece.]

Alan: I don’t know why I bought this painting. It’s got a very haunting quality… man and machine. I mean, I often look at this in the morning and think, "Ooh, I’d like to kiss her!".

I thought it was "classic intercourse"!

and yes a bit.

spencer and cutty should have a sitcom.

which side should the door be on?

That is how a number of weekend days are spent. Black Books too. I usually walk to Baja Fresh first and bring back a burrito.

The second season isn't so good is it? I just watched Knowing Me Knowing You on DVD and that's pretty good as well but nothing tops the first season of I'm Alan Partridge.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Friday, 7 October 2005 21:16 (eighteen years ago) link

This needs to show up on OnDemand.

kurt broder (dr g), Friday, 7 October 2005 21:16 (eighteen years ago) link

xpost. Oh, I don't know about that. Second season is pretty fantastic.

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Friday, 7 October 2005 21:18 (eighteen years ago) link

At least, there's nothing I can point to directly and say, "oh season 2 is worse because". I guess he's slightly less pathetic?

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Friday, 7 October 2005 21:29 (eighteen years ago) link

chris from the pattern and the peechees is a big partidge/coogan fan. there were coogan tapes on the bus when i rode with them in 2001.

i bought the season 1 dvd before i went on the road. i can't actually watch it anymore. i think i have become too empathic to watch.

foxy boxer (stevie), Friday, 7 October 2005 21:38 (eighteen years ago) link

Actually, I rented the Season 1 DVD and watched them all in order but I've only caught a couple of Season 2 episodes on BBC America. Maybe I didn't like them as much because of the annoying commercials. The Bond marathon episode was definitely great.

walter kranz (walterkranz), Friday, 7 October 2005 21:44 (eighteen years ago) link

Are any of the I'm Alan Partridge episodes available on s1sk or t0rrents? I've never come across any of them. I'm so happy KMKYWAP finally came out over here. Are there plans for a release of them any time?

I love the one where he goes back to his high school.

As for s1sk, that's where I originally found all the episodes.

Anyone know exactly what this is, e.g. 10 minute 'shorts' or an actual series? This Sun article says "Highlights of his gut-bustingly funny musings and outrageous anecdotes are being packaged together for a brand new web series on fostersfunny.co.uk" - highlights?
Needless to say, I'm looking forward to this esp since Fosters aren't having anything to do with it (unlike Will Arnett/Orbit (or Wrigleys?) "content")

this was probably my favourite episode so far, favourite bit was probably the explanation of why he went back and forth to the tailor so many times

A viking of frowns, (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Saturday, 8 May 2021 13:28 (two years ago) link

Yeah that was great, especially the throwaway acknowledgement it was because he'd had hair surgery.

does anyone remember on the radio series of KMKY where Alan reveals under hypnosis that some kids at school called him "Smelly Alan Fartridge" when he was 9, then when he is told about it frantically tried to persuade the guests that he wasn't smelly when he was 9, took a shower every day, etc.?

yeah for some reason thinking about that tonight

For those outside the UK, Jeremy Vine is a perfect example of the sort of posh dimwit that is the bedrock of the British broadcast media, and they're all related to each other or married to each other or whatever.

This was first announced in 2019, you’ve had time to catch up (on the 900 hours of other Gibbons material they’ve pumped out since)

The Gibbons material has all been strong imo, though I've not read the books since the autobiog.

Other than the two series of “This Time”, the Oasthouse podcast, and the Amazon special, has there been other AP/Coogan content in the last couple years?

B. Amato (Boring, Maryland), Tuesday, 6 February 2024 08:47 (two weeks ago) link

Two books, which are also available in (necessary) audio book format.

to be honest I have loved all of this stuff.

The only one I haven’t bothered watching is strategem, has coogan figured out how to do live comedy yet? Previous partridge et al live shows were dire

Boris Yitsbin (wins), Tuesday, 6 February 2024 11:26 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah I saw strategem live and it was pretty terrible.

The little reunion at the end of the 3rd series of From the Oasthouse though was absolutely perfect and I loved it.

Oh didn’t even know there was a third series of Oasthouse and a new book.

B. Amato (Boring, Maryland), Tuesday, 6 February 2024 14:39 (two weeks ago) link

yeah there's a lot to keep up with, I think the Beacon book passed me by completely (audio-only stuff takes longer for me to find time to listen to, and it's usually worth listening to the books).

kinder, Tuesday, 6 February 2024 16:41 (two weeks ago) link

I'm not complaining though, if the Gibbonses are reading...
