Quote from: Twed on January 22, 2017, 02:23:46 PMThis is such a gift to me, as my grandmother lives in Little Oakley[nb]I grew up in Great Oakley[/nb]. It's such a tiny place to be referenced, and Domingo really would stand out like a sore thumb.
Quote from: holyzombiejesus on January 22, 2017, 02:06:24 PMJust been watching some Partridge clips on youtube and noticed on the episode of KMKYWAP when Alan reels off his list of nicknames for Lawrence Knowles and asks Lawrence if he would like to comment, the line "I have the same solicitor as Dave Lee Travis" has been removed.

Quote from: non capisco on January 22, 2017, 11:51:52 PMI've always loved Coogan's ad lib "No manners, but what a critic" after the horse shits on the set in the background of KMKYWAP.

Quote from: non capisco on January 22, 2017, 11:51:52 PMAs someone else has already nominated the enduring pathos of Joe Beazley and Cheeky Monkey is for me the high watermark of all Alan Partridge things. I found it both hysterical and faintly sad on its first broadcast in 1994 and I'm still a bit obsessed with it to this day, a plaintive still image of Joe Beazley has been my work screensaver for a long while now. John Thomson is just perfect. There are so many tiny details to savour in his brief performance. His entrance when the puppet's limitations are immediately apparent and he has to pretend the monkey is intent on pulling him across the stage away from the mic. "What do you get if you cross Fred Flintstone....no, not what if you cross...." The bleak brilliance of Cheeky Monkey going bezerk with its head to the sky during the fluffed first "Yabba Dabba Dooooooo!" "The other week....pack it in, you!" "They've got the biggest rollercoaster in the world, it's massive...(flounders) Int'it? (makes monkey vigorously nod)" Probably the best bit, when Cheeky Monkey's hands become separated and he quietly mutters "Oh, god", then fails to reattach them and just stands there with one of the hands lamely pressed against his chest. The cutaway to a nervous looking Alan. "It's his fault, ladies and gentlemen, he's made me forget!" Fuck man, it's so brilliant and I might have to watch it again now. "Hold onto your sides, they might just split!"

Quote from: iamcoop on January 22, 2017, 02:19:54 AMThere's a line in I, Partridge which is always popping into my mind and I'm not really sure why but it's when he describes being caught with a microwave in his room in the travel tavern as a result of its "unusually loud ding" which is a "common failing of many of the newer Sanyo's."
