Trivia

One of the original ideas for the second series was to set it in a former mansion which had been converted into small flats. Alan would have been the only person living there, except for an airline pilot, who would live in the other wing, and occasionally walk past Alan. See more »

Goofs

Although Alan Partridge comes from Norwich in East Anglia, on occasion Steve Coogan's Manchester accent comes through in the character. See more »

Why the dodgy reviews ? This is one of the best !!
12 November 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews



I'm a big Partridge fan, and enjoyed Knowing Me, Knowing You, and the 1st I'm Alan Partridge. I have to say this is a more than welcome addition to the series, if not the best. Alan's character is even more childish than ever, and he's also developed a slight arrogance towards people as he has become more self-confident (at least he thinks so). Alan's interaction with the builders is classic and his ever evolving friendship with Michael is superb. I was so glad that Michael got more to do in this one, everything he says is funny, especially when describing what he'd do with the Apache helicopter. Classic. The episode with Alan making friends with Dan (the kitchen man) is absolutely hilarious, and his antics at the Norfolk bravery awards is so crude and funny. "Beep, beep, got room for a brave one ?" hehe. There are so many hilarious parts to this series - its the best English comedy I've seen for a long time, I really cant understand why some people here found it disappointing (perhaps because you wanted to see Alan succeed ??). I recommend to watch it again and pay close attention, this is genius comedy. Series 3 soon please ! Highly recommended.

"You've never had a cup o' beans Mr Partridge" ?
