Awkward and uncomfortable.
17 March 2007 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

I'll still maintain that the laugh track on I'm Alan Partridge dates it somewhat, especially in comparison to similar shows like The Office or Extras, but it's absence on this one-off TV Special kind of makes it a bit difficult.

By this point, Alan Partridge is just reduced to an idiot who makes the worst of every situation and crosses almost every single person he encounters. I hate the fact that Steve Coogan chose to take his most popular character in this easy, Homer Simpson-like direction but that's beside the point.

Alan is interviewed in a sort of Sunday morning BBC one-to-one with a presenter who makes a poor effort at making falseness of it seem genuine. Neither of them have a clue what they are doing and the only focus seems to be Alan's misunderstood autobiography and his hatred for London or people who don't share his views.

Not that good.
