The initial BBC television broadcast of the first episode contained a sound clip of Joni Mitchell's song 'Big Yellow Taxi'. Due to music rights issues, this clip was removed from the VHS video versions. However, the BBC's initial release on DVD accidentally left the sound clip intact. This version was quickly withdrawn from sale and replaced by a 2 disc version with the sound clip correctly silenced. See more »
ranks right up there with "the Office", and "Faulty Towers"
Steve Coogan is back once again as Alan Partridge. Good ol' Alan isn't doing a talk show anymore. Having fallen in hard times, he's now an early morning radio DJ, living in a hotel after his wife kicked him out and still hoping and dreaming for a second series of his talk show. From Partridge's car being vandalized with naughty language, sacking employees, and presenting a corporate video, to dealing with hotel renovations, meeting an...overzealous fan, attending a funeral, and everything in between, this 6 episode series is a sheer joy to behold and is even better than the already wildly funny "Knowing Me, Knowing You". Suffice it to say this is simply brilliant. Note to BBC America: Bring this out on Region 1 DVD NOW!!!
