"Would You Like Me To Lap Dance For You??"
D. Davis | Austin, TX | 11/24/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am SO glad to finally see a legit release of this series here in America. I've nearly worn by bootlegs out!

The Alan Partridge character which Steve Coogan portrays is nothing short of brilliant. Snobby, arrogant, close-minded and cheesy are just a few words which describe Alan's personality. Alan is one of these self-important larger than life individuals who feels he is invincible and his arrogance lands him in hot water quite a bit through this series.

This series, titled "I'm Alan Partridge", takes place a few years after the previous series titled "Knowing Me Knowing You." While KMKY was purely Alan's talk show on the BBC, "I'm Alan Partridge" follows Alan in his daily life with a type of "fly on the wall" perspective. We see him haggling with TV execs, killing time at the Linton Travel Tavern, dressing up as a zombie, fantasizing about lap dancing for Tony Hayers and much more while managing to bewilder and insult almost everyone he comes in contact with.

The writing in this series is pure comical genius. Most of the comedy is dialogue driven as we see Alan interact with his assistant Lynn, various workers at the Linton Travel Tavern (including the brilliant Michael who shows up on the next Alan Partridge series) and many more. The character development of this series is one reason why it remains so popular. Also, Alan has quite a few memorable quips in this series (you'll be quoting them in no time) and you'll never look at lap dancing the same way again! This series landed Steve Coogan several awards including a "Best Comedy" BAFTA award.

Although I am an American I have always appreciated the British style of comedy. The biting humor of "I'm Alan Partridge" stands in a league of its own and takes its rightful place among legendary BBC comedies like "Are You Being Served", "Chef!", "My Hero" and "The Thin Blue Line." Here's hoping we get a legit release of the second "I'm Alan Partridge" series as well!

Brilliant! Genius! Side-splitting! Really!

"I wasn't familiar with the British character Alan Partridge until recently and I'm so glad I came across him. This DVD is nothing short of brilliant as Steve Coogan portrays a personality we all love to hate. Deluded and self-absorbed DJ Alan Partridge is recently separated from his wife and lives in a motor lodge, where Coogan displays his comedic genius to the hilt. My favorite parts were his fantasies where he dances in a vinyl bikini and "Dad" sweater for a BBC exec, but the humor doesn't falter throughout. I don't know how I lived through the nineties without this guy! I highly recommend this."
You're Up With A Partridge - A HA

"After losing his chat show, "Knowing Me, Knowing You," Alan Partridge is reduced to working the graveyard shift as a disc jockey at Radio Norwich. His wife has left him for another man, and he's reduced to living at the three star Linton Travel Tavern. He's down, but not out. As he stumbles and bumbles his way through each early morning show, he doesn't give up his dream of returning to the chat show circuit with a second series. In fact, his dreams of just what he would do to get that show are hilarious, to say the least.

This is the sequel to the uproarious "Knowing Me, Knowing You." Alan is back and is still his usual arrogant, tactless self. However, there are some differences between these two shows. The humor in "I'm Alan Partridge," is more deadpan and less outlandish than the humor presented in KMKY. Also, there is a new cast of characters to enjoy including the patient hotel staff and the ever-vigilant and pliable Lynn, Alan's personal assistant. Together they weave a fabric of comedy not to be missed. So if you enjoyed KMKY, you should definitely not miss this one. Very highly recommended.

Brilliant, Edgy Comedy

"It's criminal this show hasn't aired in North America. This show will have you on the floor in hysterics. Steve Coogan plays Alan Partridge, who had a very short lived and very bad talk show on the BBC. He's now in Norwich, as a graveyard shift DJ, but lives in a hotel because he thinks he's "that close" to getting back on the BBC. He's the only patron in the hotel and he makes their lives hell and all of it will have you howling. Find this show, if you can, and buy it!"
