Couldn't find any existing thread relating to the great man's work.

Tonight sees the most highly anticipated return to tv since.... well, ever.

Bigger than Youth Hostelling with Chris Eubank

More controversial than Arm Wrestling With Chas and Dave.

Less likely to be ripped off by Gordon Ramsey than Cooking In Prison....


Sky Atlantic 9pm.

The Partridge has landed.

Or will have landed. By 9pm....

Anyone for monkey tennis?

Have seen a few clips and it looks like classic Partridge!

Also, it's on Sky 1 Friday for those (like me) without Sky Atlantic.

It was great, I loved the bit where he had a Hitler moment. But it was proper Partridge - really enjoyed it.

Not going to post spoilers, as I want Skiba to be able to savour every ruddy moment of it.

But classic Partridge it most certainly was

Clearly the team had been watching Charles Dickens's England before this.

I thought it started off a bit average but after about 10 minutes it was classic Partridge with many quotable lines, Flying Aids the stand out for me though. I did love the Hitler scene, fruit and veg stall (sugar tits) and the interview in the swimming pool crudely edited too though.

The wife hates Partridge, so I had to tape it and watch it at 6am when I got up with the baby. Despite being very tired and feeding a three month old, I was still laughing.

"Let me put that in context - flying aids" - fantastic line.

I still can't quite believe he referred to Norfolk's lack of multiculturalism as "black-lack"

Thanks!! Have watched now and it was indeed classic Partridge!

I'd seen the flying aids bit in a clip but what a line that is! The Nazi dogs and him spluttering around in the pool were great too.

I watched this nice thick slice of Partridge over the weekend and loved it. As Mid Morning Matters is due for release on DVD in August, it would be wonderful if this was included on the disc.

This was hilarious.  A spot on piss take of modern television.
Especially enjoyed the dramatic historic account of the Car-Park charges.

In case anyone's unaware and missed it last night, Sky Atlantic are showing the hour-long special Alan Partridge on Open Books again tonight at 11pm (and probably lots more repeats over the coming week), and then his Mid Morning Matters show starts next Monday at 9pm.
The TV series version is 6 x 30 mins, whereas the web version was 12 x 15 mins. I'll leave it to you to try and fathom what the heck happened there.

Quite enjoyed this. My favourite moments were actually the "Welcome to the Places of My Life" sung by multiple Alan's parts.

Cracked me up every time.

I thought the book show was pretty average to start with, but after about the half way point it started to become pure gold... especially the book about Titanic

Ah, good. Not just me then. Last weeks was superb, comedy gold, but the book show I'm struggling with. I've been watching it in bits and I'm about halfway through. Its a good concept idea, but was feeling to me that an hour of it was stretching it too much. Now you've said it gets better I'll look forward to the remaining half with optimism.

Yeah I quite liked it as well. Favourite bits were the twins, "I'd like to stab you with a knife...I take that back" and the glasses
