Quote from: Dave The Triffids on June 02, 2022, 08:30:17 AMWhat's also curious about this is that in one of the later This Time episodes, the Geordie/Mackem bloke who Alan briefly interviews is also wearing a tooth badge. When Alan asks where he got it, the bloke says (something like) "..from my mate, Michael".Of all the names they could have chosen, surely it's no coincidence they went for Michael?
Quote from: TommyTurnips on June 03, 2022, 02:46:47 PMI tried to watch that in-character commentary of I'm Alan Partridge years ago but switched off when the characters started talking about the programme as if it was a fly on the wall documentary, when it quite clearly is a regular sitcom that doesn't break the fourth wall.
Quote from: kalowski on June 03, 2022, 04:47:48 PMVery excited about this. Been working through series 1 it with the kids and we've been falling about. I think I'm the person mentioned above who wrote aboutAlan running. Coogan is absolutely fantastic at that, especially when he jumps the wall. It's basically an out of breath man talking, but it's hilarious.
Quote from: markburgle on June 03, 2022, 05:00:42 PMThey refer to it as a docu-drama reennactment, with the two of them as themselves and everyone else played by actors. I like it, it's obviously not stellar and doesn't fully make sense but it's 3 hours of low-stakes Alan and I'm happy it exists
Quote from: willbo on June 03, 2022, 06:24:48 PMI remember getting the DVD and being so shocked that an in-character commentary track existed that it never occurred to me to judge it as good or bad quality.
Quote from: Martin Van Buren Stan on May 31, 2022, 05:37:25 PMYeah, the recent stuff makes early partridge look embarrassing really. The Day Today was good as was IAP1 but everything else from that period seems cringe in comparison.
Quote from: QDRPHNC on June 04, 2022, 01:52:53 PMI laughed very loud last night, after he chins himself in the spa and tries to say "podcast" with a broken mouth.
Quote from: Menu on June 04, 2022, 02:48:41 AMI love it. There's a bit where he just sort of wheezes instead of speaking which is sublime - you probably know the bit I mean. I think that 2 minutes is one of my favourite Partridge scenes.
Quote"I'm just waiting to hear from Audible as they've yet to say they definitely want a second series. I'm not worried. It's just that they said they'd call and thus far they haven't. It's fine. They've not not called. They've just not called."
Quote from: Misspent Boners on June 05, 2022, 12:18:19 AMImmensely enjoyed the first series but I do so wish there was a version available where the theme tune was cut out...its an amusing piece of music , but as my preferred method of listening is lying in bed lulling in and out of sleep it gets immensely grating and just a little too intense haha

Quote from: Menu on June 06, 2022, 02:07:05 AMThere's a similar problem with the BRIAN BRIAN BRIAN BRIAN BRIAN BRIAN BRIAN bit in Nomad.
Quote from: Mobius on June 06, 2022, 11:05:21 AMI'm watching Partridge on Comic Relief 1999 and he says he's marrying a Canadian woman in a few weeks. I guess that isn't canon
Quote from: buttgammon on June 06, 2022, 11:23:29 AMThis has scared the hell out of me while I'm half-asleep on several occasions!
Quote from: Menu on June 02, 2022, 01:36:24 AMIsn't there an odd badge he's wearing in S2 as well? Which is never referred to so makes no sense. I assume there's already been about 6 threads discussing this....
QuoteSpeaking to The Guardian ahead of This Time's first series, he revealed that the badge represents 'a shadowy showbiz organisation' that he explained 'looks after' its members while doing philanthropic works – comparing it to the Freemasons.Coogan went on to explain that it may never actually be mentioned on the show, but 'has been worked out and is authentic to the character'.So, now you know.
Quote from: QDRPHNC on June 06, 2022, 02:25:32 PMMaybe I'll do an abridged sleep edit. I've been meaning to do something similar with MMM for ages, make it audio only for bedtime listening.
