New Alan Partridge series revealed
*The One Show* - possibly the most mundane, pointless and random programme on televison. Beige TV supreme. Ripe, then, for The Partridge Parody. Hope Coogan's piss-take kills the original off. Stone dead.
Alan quiz. I scored 9 out of 10.
Alan Partridge quiz: Let battle commence!
5/10 , must go back and rewatch
Stop getting Partridge wrong!
I got 9, for what it's worth.
9 for me, too, though I'm quite disappointed in the score.
Does anyone else sense a Partridge marathon prior to the new show's transmission? It'll need to be tightly scheduled mind.
Hmm, this obviously didn't surface this year.
In the absence of a new series, I watched Knowing Me Knowing Yule last night. Still very, very funny.
Out in Febuary apparently but exact date not announced yet.
Kiss my face!
Can't fucking wait
Their sex swappers Lynn!
Have you never had a cuppa beanz?
What a funny story
I have an Alan Partridge app on my phone. You can get it to spout various Alan-isms. I particularly like 'Ya big girl's bras'.
I just did the quiz again, and got 9 again. My failure was not knowing how old Michael was when he joined the army. I guessed at eighteen, simply because it sounded better than seventeen in his voice.
Does anyone know why the BBC haven't put out a date for this to start yet? We're a third of the way through February so we're running out of time if it's going to be this month. Want to see it.
My wife and I are always doing Alan isms at each other. It's a sort of default Netflix option when we can't be arsed to get into a serious film.
I wont be surprised if the first episode just squeezes into February, with most of them happening in March. But I am just guessing.
They're still negotiating the second series.
And dotting the i's on the conetract.
alan partridge would make a better brexit negotiator than the shower of shit we've seen the last 2.5 years. and he's a fictional character.
David Camerons famous negotiating technique of 'not going for a piss and then becoming desperate, adding a sense of urgency to proceedings' strikes me as something Partridge might try.
