Well, that doesn't count because it's quite witty and not just a dumb catchphrase. Quoting Alan can be great, but those YouTube comments make me imagine working in an office full of... office men.
Of course. Because every other comment is 'Back of the net' or "Jack a nack a nory" and not a single "they wanted a better ethnic mix and I was the fall guy"

It's just folk with a total and utter lack of imagination, the sort of people who post the same old GIFs on social media in lieu of having an original humourous thought.

Yes, I know there's a thread on this very forum devoted to quotes from the Partridgeverse, but the point of that thread is to remind people of lovely bits and pieces they may have forgotten. It's not just a bunch of boring idiots posting "JACKANACKANORY" and "KISS MY FACE". I find it difficult to imagine "these people" actually enjoying the Alan character on anything more than a purely superficial level.

I am, of course, fully aware of how comedy snobbish that all sounds, but this is CaB, so fuck it.
That's basically it, I resent their stupid inferior brains.

I do actually mean that.

I was pleasantly surprised to overhear a group of young-ish lads on a train the other week quoting Partridge and they didn't go for the obvious "Back of the net! / Jurassic Park!" lines. I remember one of them doing a pretty good: "You know what this room says to me? Aqua. Which is French for water."

Scary to think that line was aired a long time before they were born.

It's like being inside an enormous Fox's Glacier Mint, which again, to me, is a bonus.






That's how you do it.

Yeah. This group must have been between 18-21. So maybe not a long time before, but definitely before they were born.

It's scary in a "it's incredible that something that still seems modern can be from before when adults were born" way, and it's clearly excellent that an entirely new generation are into this comedy from before they were born.

Here's something weird

this video is unlisted https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3rTbjdnV_k
this one isn't https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1t39E5xMD5I

But the one that hasn't been unlisted has this weird effect on it, don't know what to call it but it looks really odd. Anyone else notice it? reminds me of how the Doctor Who series 11 trailer had this really offputting scanline effect on it. This is even worse though. Not saying it's intentional but it's weird they delisted the good one.

That happens when the video hasn't been de-interlaced correctly, if it's done properly the scanlines should be blended together.

Technicals-wise I honestly prefer the listed trailer, not because of the interlacing but because of the framerate - it's a bit higher than the other one, which I feel gives it that actual live TV verisimilitude, and hopefully that'll be the case in the full series. The listed trailer also cuts out a bit later than the other one, though I suppose the ultimate pacing of the dry mouth gag will be determined by the rest of that scene in the broadcast episode.

Something I noticed in both trailers, though - Jennie Gresham's remembrance of Mid-Morning Matters at 0:19 is delivered with a completely closed mouth. Maybe she was a ventriloquist before boarding the BBC gravy train?

I didn't understand what you were on about there at first, but it looks like the weird interlacing mess is specific to the 1080p stream. The unlisted one is slightly shorter, with us getting an extra final "my mouth is dry" in the the live one, so that's probably the reason they reuploaded with the encoding thing an error.

EDIT: Snap.

The best bit of that trailer is his tiny glance at the co-presenter's backside followed by the equally minuscule one he gives to see if anyone noticed.

I thought that, but it's not her speaking. It's the make up woman with the blonde hair.

That's very well spotted.  I'm not sure who the actress is but she seems very good in that short amount of time.

I thought the same thing initially. TBH I think it's a bit of bad editing. Creates a confusing impression.

I discovered today that the Gibbons actually co-directed this series. I reckon they do a damn fine job. I always enjoying seeing 'live television going wrong' done well in a fictional setting, it's quite hard to do convincingly, but they pull it off.

How did the Coogan/Gibbons collaboration come about? Looking at the Gibbons' imdb they've got 2DTV on their credits.

I think they submitted a script to Baby Cow and then Coogan asked them to write material for his (frankly mediocre) 2008ish tour.

Agreed, very well spotted and a cracking bit of partridging from coogan

Thicko question. Is there an airdate announced for this yet? Just read several recent articles but they all just say "early 2019". I thought it was mentioned in this thread but I can't find it. Have I gone bananas?

I was going to ask this earlier but didn’t want to look like a big thicko like popcorn does now.

Yeah, it was Ballad of Ballard Berkeley who said that but not confirmed officially. Today's Radio Times might have a teaser for the next edition.

I personally am pleased to hear that Sidekick Simon is in this. Anything that helps to keep Tim Key in suits is fine by me.

Ooh I am very excited. If this is rubbish I'm going to go and shoot up Television Centre. Yes I know it's posh flats now, that'll just make my mass killing all the sweeter.

I remember one of them doing a pretty good: "You know what this room says to me? Aqua. Which is French for water."

I introduced one of the young lads at work to Partridge after they were on about some crap anecdote thing they'd heard on the radio in the lavs, so I sent them the 'Makita Drill' funny story.
