well i finally got to see this show and i was not disappointed!
One show in particular is as good as anything the PYTHON'S ever concocted.

Partridge goes to France to do a show and every guest is an archetype of French snootyness, pretension, and snobbery.
Thers is a scene with a French clown troupe that has to be seen to be believed.
I was crying with laughter!!!!

check it out (its on dvd in america)

A-Haaaaaa!!

One of my favourite comiccreations of all time...

I'm Alan Partridge is brilliant, brilliant comedy - well, the first series is, anyway. The writers openly admit that they lost their way during the second series, but it is nonetheless very watchable...just not quite up to the high standard of what came before...

Of course, for the full Partridge Experience you also need to track down the radio show "On The Hour" (Partridge's first foray into broadcasting, as a sports reporter), the TV series "The Day Today" (Basically a TV version of On The Hour, but funnier)....then comes KMKY-WAP and I'm Alan Partridge....then there is Alan's Biography "I, Partridge - We Need To Talk About Alan", then two TV specials - "Welcome to the Places of my Life" and "Open Books" both screened last year - the former being Alan showing us around his home county of Norfolk, and the latter is Alan appearing on a book show and reading excerpts from his biography...Then comes "Mid Morning Matters" - his forst foray into broadcasting since the death on his show...and then of course the aforementioned Alan Partridge Movie due out this year, for which I personally can't wait.

There are a couple of sketches here and there, such as "Anglian Lives", that were one-offs which you have to find to be a real completist!!

I love Alan Partridge. Have you seen the I'm Alan Partridge series yet? I think the episode ( can't remember the title? ) with his "Number 1 fan" is possibly the funniest half hour of TV I've ever seen.

I agree with the poster above that the 2nd series was not as great but it still has some great moments, especially the one with the James Bond video session marathon and "DAN".

Despite the not-so-good quality of the second season as a whole, that is an absolute classic scene...

Steve Coogan is probably the only comic in the history of mankind who can do a Roger Moore imitation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The UK DVD release of I'm Alan Partridge has rather an unusual feature...a commentary track by Partridge himself and his long-suffering PA Lynn. "Jurassic Park!"

Steve Coogan's Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa will be released in the US next year after making its North American debut at the New York Film Festival.

The movie, which will simply be called Alan Partridge, is being lined up for a 2014 release by Magnolia Pictures.

Producer Kevin Loader said his team was "thrilled... to introduce North American cinema-goers to the complex character that is Alan Partridge".

The film is the first big-screen outing for Coogan's bumbling DJ character.

In a statement, Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles admitted he had only had "a passing knowledge" of the fictional Norwich-based broadcaster but had found the film "an instant comedy classic."

It is one of a number of British titles to feature in the line-up of this year's New York Film Festival, which runs from 27 September to 13 October.

Others include Richard Curtis's time travel romance About Time, Roger Michell's Le Week-end and Ralph Fiennes' Dickens drama The Invisible Woman.

Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa has made £4.2 million in the UK and Ireland since its release on 7 August.
