    Gingerman Is a great bunch of lads.....

    Coogan's done some memorable characters but he'll never top the Partridge imo,if there's going to be a new series let's hope the quality is as high as the previous Partridge stuff

    I thought The Trip was as funny as Partridge. We'll see if it's still funny in ten years though.

    Did anyone watch the Partridge retrospective last night? I've seen it all before, many times in the cases of IAP, but it's oddly timeless.

    And an as-yet untitled new BBC series coming in 2018; Spice World!

    Yep, really enjoyed it. Partridge is up there with Only fools and Horses for me. Timeless!

    I watched a C4 "25 Best British Sit-Coms" earlier. Inevitably OFAH beat Fawlty Towers into second place, but far more shocking was that Partridge didn't even make the cut for any of his shows. For me, it'd probably be second to Father Ted (all these polls take a liberal interpretation of "British", often featuring Mrs Brown too).

    neonwilderness What would Badgers do?

    A liberal interpretation of best too :hmm:

    I saw the doc last night. Seen most of it before, as you say, but it was still an interesting watch. It’s made me want to watch Alpha Papa again, I wasn’t much of a fan of it first time.

    Give it another go. It's true Partridge even though it doesn't have the Patrick Marber anarchic streak

    xenon A move in any direction

    There are a couple of audiobooks. I am going to listen to I Partridge again. The sports correspondence Partridge sounds like Alan Biggs off five live.

    The film was okay but a bit too ridiculous.

    Yeah me neither, but my daughter (10) was pissing herself over all the papa alpha clips, and she has asked to watch it. I can't remember if it's appropriate for minors.

    danny la rouge Without music, life would be a mistake.

    It's a 15.

    There are several uses of strong language ('f**k'), alongside milder terms including 'twat', 'whores', 'shit', 'bastard', 'dick', 'arse', 'sod', 'sluts', 'balls' and 'hell'. There are some scenes in which discriminatory language is used. In one scene, a drunken woman remarks that she looks like a "Chinky". In other scenes, Alan and his colleagues make mocking references to other races or religions. However, the men are presented as insensitive and socially inept, so these comments are not condoned or endorsed by the film.

    Infrequent scenes of violence occur within a clearly comic context, and there are some visual and verbal references to sex and drugs. The film also contains male nudity when Alan's trousers are torn off as he tries to climb through a window.

    Heh, in five years then. Though I guess she ha already seen the male nudity (but she thought that was the funniest bit).

    I thought it was interesting that Iannucci in hindsight thought series 2 of IAP should've stayed in the Travel Tavern, as I always liked its transition to the caravan.
