Talkback Production's BBC comedy series 'I'm Alan Partridge' features an extra 20 minutes of footage when purchased on video. During the extra footage Alan Partridge suggests an idea for a television programme. His idea is a programme called 'Bonnington' - starring Brian Blessed. Alan says: "A screen mountaineering adventure with Brian Blessed in the title role. We could film on location on Everest with close-ups on Skarfelt pike; no-one will know the difference, we'll just paint the rocks white. I also know for a fact that Brian Blessed can work at high altitudes without oxygen -- which should cut costs". See more »
Why the dodgy reviews ? This is one of the best !!
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" ?
