I haven't actually seen the other two series of Alan Partridge, but i have recently bought a copy of this on DVD. I can say without a doubt that its the funniest thing I've ever seen.
Steve Coogan's comic timing is priceless. He plays the part so well its hard to believe he's not a real person. The many guests on his show all all played by four or five actors all of whom are very good at playing different characters and personalities.
On the show Alan Partridge interviews has a wide variety of made up celebrities, most of whom he insults, embarrasses and even kills in one episode!
The best moment of the series is when he does a medley of ABBA songs with one of his guests, its so very funny.
This show never has an awkward moment or a bad joke. Steven Coogan along with the other two writers have managed to come up with some great scenarios. A river of brilliance runs through. It truly is a great achievement in the field of comedy. Definitely worth buying. 10/10
