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.
