I watched the second series and have been informed the first series was a lot better. A lot of his lines seem very forced by the end.

 Still I loved the "Flatley my dear, I don't Riverdance" joke.

Alan: Jet from Gladiators to host a millennium barn dance at Yeovil aerodrome.
[He puts the Dictaphone down for a second. A worrying thought then occurs to him and he switches it on again.]
Properly policed. It must not, I repeat not, turn into an all-night rave.

 

[Alan switches the Dictaphone off. He sighs, and as he lies on the bed music fades in and we cut to a fantasy daydream sequence in which Alan, dressed in a pringle sweater and leather thong, dances on the stage of a seedy nightclub under various coloured lighting. In front of the stage is a small table at which sits Tony Hayers. Alan moves towards him.]

 

Alan:Would you like me to lap-dance for you?

[Tony Hayers offers the gyrating Alan a ten-pound note]

Alan:[Shaking his finger] Uh-uh. I want a second series.

Creepy. Funny.

The talk show was the best thing he's done, only a few episodes and I've watched them dozens of times, and they still crack me up.

The first series of I'm Alan Partidge was also great, but I agree that the second was a bit forced. He should have left the character there I guess.

Oh yeah, and he was on The Day Today as sports correspondent as well.

I don't know what series this is, but I find the bit with the toilet door as a table, and bicycle wheel with lots of torches tied to it as the ceiling light hilarious. And then the bit later on where he is doing the speech after standing on a spike on a fence.

no way you spastic your a mentalist.

i think that was my favourite with his biggest fan
but then there's also the one he's about to get a contract for a new series and the guy dies,
and he's commentating on this festival thing and judges some vegtables.


oh and i've remberd a line.
after he gets stopped by the polic for messing about with a traffic cone, and michael runs away,
and later at the hotel alan says to him

"can i have eggs tommorow"
"yes mr partridge"
"and i'd like you to lay them you chicken"

no thats the strange thing that thought never occurs to me
maybe because a lot of the posts are to close threads
so there's already a sense of stric authoity
about him.

with your name i think of timesplitters 2

yeah that episode your talking is probably the best in the series, he's talking to the south african guy who prononces the a in cant as u and alan falls of the sofa and tries to laugh it off.

and the things he says to get into the country club or whatever,

"i've just swalloed a load of anthrax,
and i've come to thorw up over the place"

and "i'm a communist with a gun, i hate you lot and want to shoot you all"

dont remeber either very well, but its something to that effect

Yep, Steve Coogan's going to bring him back one more time. And we all know Alan's attitude towards America.

Does Alan Partridge - I've never heard about him before - has something to do with "Partridge's (sp?) Farm remembers ..." from "A fishfull of Dollars"?

I've got The Day Today DVD and there's some classic Alan Partridge on there.

My favourite piece of Alan Partridge is the soccer commentary on The Day Today:

"Twat!  That was liquid football!"

Plus, on the DVD, there's a new interview between Alan and Chris Morris where Alan explains his conspiracy theories on Princess Diana's and JFK's deaths. 

Funny funny stuff.

Partridge back when he was on On The Hour (the Radio 4 predecessor to The Day Today) was great too, the horse-racing commentary, plus the subplot about his wife dying then coming back from the dead.

Steve Coogan is a very funnny man and Alan Partridge is great. I loved it on "The Day Today" when he was interviewing that jockey and he couldn't believe he was a man.

Oh yeah!  That was great!

Alan: So all the other jockeys, they're all grown men too?  That makes sense, I bet that's why you don't see men like Brian Blessed riding horses.

I just saw Coffee and Cigarettes.. The first I've seen of Steve. And let me tell you.. Even if you LOVE this guy.. He's entirely unlikeable in this movie. Just.. ugh. I'm sure he's usually funny, but I must watch Alan Patridge soon and see if it gets the bad taste out of my mouth.

 Agree with all of that and I'm actually disappointed by what the character has turned into in hindsight. I loved the horseracing commentaries he did where he just ends up repeatedly shouting stupid horse names like "Christ's Chin!", "Alf Ramsay's Porn Dungeon!" and "I Am A Horse!" Marvellous.  big grin

There's something oddly hilarious, about having a horse called "I Am A Horse".  I'm surprised no-ones thought of it before.

My favourite horse name?

"Keith", "Coventry Child Abuse", "Alan Beef Tonsil Boy", "Two-Headed Sex Beast" and "Zeneb Bedawi's 20 Hotels".

I agree, the later series' are wasted, there should be a series with his sports commentaries on, because they're downright hilarious.

Nurdy, if I could find MP3's, I'd post them.

EDIT:  Ta daaaa!

Here are full-show downloads of On The Hour.  Go mad.  They're brilliant.

If you scroll down to the Christmas Special, that's the one with Alan Partridges Year Of Sport (including the Horse-Racing commentary).  Hilarious.
