Subject: Steve Coogan/ Alan Partridge Thread
Date Posted: 11 Aug 2012 at 1:45pm
Just after meeting Steve Coogan when he came into the shop i work in in Westport and i never thought to ask him for a photo with him. was too star struck like a schoolgirl. his sunglasses flew off him when he shook my hand . an absolute legend and one of my favourite comediens. Ricky Gervais has alot to thank him for seeing as his comedy is very similar

Should ve feckin asked him for a picture

Because Westport is the jewel in Irelands crown, thats why

he has relations near westport and has been coming over on and off for years.

He seemed like a nice fella and was with his daughter who had Supermacs onion ring sized earrings on her. Cant wait for the next season of mid morning matters

I think he is being dragged out a little bit now. The film seemed to have been the end of Partridge. I hope I'm wrong.
 
24 Hour Party People is superb and Coogan makes it. He knew Wilson as a kid which helped. I think Wilson was a friend of Coogan's aunt.

The fight scene and the final scene tonight were brilliant, especially the shuttlecock. Parts missed but it was definitely more hit (the after eight, the lad falling off the stage, the bit with Lynn) than miss (the bit with the chimps). Definitely an improvement on last week's show.

I thought the opposite! It dipped a little bit this week. It felt a little forced and predictable. Still decent though.

The lad with the beard is poor and tends to drag down any scene he's in.Thankfully, he's not in it much. The bit with the chimps didn't work at all,I think  because he's such a talent with voices the idea of him then deliberately doing bad ones was too convoluted. I agree with PM,last weeks was better.

I thought the opposite! It dipped a little bit this week. It felt a little forced and predictable. Still decent though.


A bit - the bit before with the son of the head of factual programming was generally tedious.

However, there was plenty of gold in it - the lad from Sunderland was superb.

Plus it ended on such a good high.

I missed last weeks 1st episode but i was very disappointed by alans latest venture. Was poor i thought. The only really funny bit was when he was talking to lynn and the bit at the very end. I expected it to be funnier like the old days i suppose. Hes still class though.

Haven't seen last night's episode yet so I can't comment on it, but I think the chat show host type of thing for Partridge has been played out.
The best ever thing he's done was I'm Alan Partridge when he was in the travel tavern IMO.

That series never ages, but the initial Knowing Me Knowing You is as funny still, been watching repeats again recently, still piss myself laughing at him. LOLClap

I'm Alan Partridge is brilliant but the laughter track is so tedious on it. Just doesn't suit his type of comedy. 

I know I'm in the minority here but Mid Morning Matters is way more enjoyable and more subtle than I'm Alan Partridge. 

Did any of ye see his comic relief interview with Roger Daltry? One of my favourite sketches of him. LOL

They have aged terribly.

Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Yeah I think the same.  Was enjoyable but few hilarious moments unlike last week

Best episode so far. The last 10 minutes were great.

Yep, that was brilliant! The only weakness is Tim Key's slot, it adds nothing and is cringe inducing in a bad way.
