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!".

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 (twelve years ago) Permalink

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.

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?

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")

Did my annual switch-on to Now TV to watch this and GoT. Watched 2 eps, for some reason I lost my shit at "what part of 'multi-pack, not to be sold separately' don't they understand?" and was hyperventilating for about 15 minutes straight.

by chance i'm listening to this podcast right now. probably one for people with nothing better to do if i'm honest, but a lot of fun regardless.

alan partridge stuff is the only stuff i can watch more than once a year without getting bored. clearly it's having an effect on me as yesterday i had 'full sex with a woman' bouncing around my head for no reason.

btw coogan hinted recently that they're working on something new.

"We're doing some more Alan at the end of this year. He'll return to the small screen in a way that we're trying to devise at the moment," Coogan said. "We're not quite sure what that is, but we've got a few ideas that I'm going to keep up my sleeve at the moment. But there'll be more Alan, there'll be a regular appearance of Alan and some of the usual suspects."

if it turns out to be even 25% as good as welcome to the places of my life i will shit my pants with glee

fucking pop records (Autumn Almanac), Tuesday, 21 March 2017 06:47 (one year ago) Permalink

Nomad's good but the audiobook is not the masterpiece that I, Alan was - from listening, you get the feeling that whereas the first book was jammed by all four, put on the page by the Gibbonses, then revised with Ianucci and Coogan, this one was written entirely by the Gibbonses after a couple of chats with Coogan. Not that that makes the text bad! But Coogan often sounds like he's reading it for the first time, rather than delivering an incredible performance of material he knew well and was deeply involved with.

Hunt down Scissored Isle, the sequel in format to Places Of My Life. It's patchier, but has some splendid highs, and pulls off one of the most incredible revelations of a new facet of Alan's character.

cheers, the new facet was nice but it felt… forced. or something.

I was being spoiler-free in case you hadn’t seen, but the scene I was thinking of was when he does a shift on the supermarket checkout. A man so desperately defined by class-consciousness, aspiration and wilful delusion over status – but whose core desire for work is to talk to regular people – accidentally, and unwittingly, takes enormous satisfaction and pleasure in doing a “menial” role and chatting to people. He comes alive and takes properly-earned pride in doing a good job! He connects with his audience! It’s an amazing way of showing something that’s inherent in Alan, but has never been done before.

(±\ PLO;;;;;;; Style (sic), Wednesday, 22 March 2017 01:08 (one year ago) Permalink

forgot all about that scene tbh (by 'facet' i thought you meant the wacky shit near the end). i see your point, it's certainly something new for alan to be connecting with a range of people rather than the three he usually bullies about the place. he did a similar thing in welcome, but back then he was hellbent on showing off his prowess at a market stall.

probably time i watched scissored isle again. there's probably heaps i didn't pick up on the first time round (as is usually the case).

“For example, I’m doing an Alan Partridge series, that I have to write at the end of this year, to go out on BBC2 next spring. That’s going to be tough. It’s always difficult to make good comedy. You always have to work really hard at it. The standard of the comedy on Partridge is so high, that you have to match it, or people go, ‘Oh, they’ve lost it’.

Which reminds me – what’s Alan up to now?

“Well, because he has got a show on the BBC, we have a problem, because we have to explain why he’s a failure, but that he has a show. The logic of what he is doing has to make sense.

“It’s conceivable, because in this age of Brexit, they (the BBC) might think they need to get in touch with the ‘Little Englanders’ they ignore.”
