Backa the net!
Thanks for resharing, @mattjoes. It's from the second series of I'm Alan Partridge (2002). It's so famous around these parts it even has its own thread title!
And a MI6 Community Fantasy Premier League mini league! :-D
Really? I'm guessing that must be off the forum, though I don't know too much about football.
Yes, it's on the Fantasy Premier League site. But we do have an own thread for it!
Ah, yes! I'd forgotten about that thread! :)
So what did we think of the first episode of Series 2 then?
But there's an even more obscure version of this when he discusses the opening scene, "...and a man from The Onedin Line comes in and says 'why are the cups wobbling, what's going on?'". He's wrong. The captain of the British submarine (the one who asks "what's going on") was NOT on The Onedin Line...
...but Kim Fortune (who plays the British sub's SECOND-in-command) *was* in an episode of The Onedin Line.
Coogan is as much of a nerd as anyone.
No one has yet mentioned the Bond chronological order when he was planning his marathon viewing fest.
He criminally misses out OHMSS. He skips over it straight to DAF. It always bugged me in that scene, and I am surprised no one here noticed it or commented on it.
Was it an error by the script writers, or was it done on purpose?
Yes, and I think that's a subtle nod and wink to the audience that he's not as big a Bond fan as he imagines and that he's still capable of making elementary mistakes. I suppose it's consistent with the rest of his character though and that's why those parts were included as subtle jokes for those in the know.
If you're into football, you are welcome to join us!
Thank you for the invitation, @Torgeirtrap, but I'm afraid I know nothing of worth about football. :)
Because there is nothing of worth to know.
I didn't like to say that but I do hear enough of it talked about by armchair pundits on a daily basis basically everywhere I go. I try to block it out but it's all pervasive.
Alan and Ruth's interactions are hilarious.
We can't all be football fans of course. :-)
I of course strongly disagree with this! :D
Anyway, this has little to do with Alan Partridge; sorry for going off topic.
makings of a Manager :D
The same could surely be said of any profession! ;)
In this new woke TV world, where he is constantly aware of what he’s not allowed to say, Partridge’s wings are clipped.
And they seem to have massively missed the point there. Alan is a Daily Mail, right winger, leaping on the bandwagon of 'woke' because that's where he sees his route through, just like many of these older presenters. That's the joke that's soared over their head.
Yes, he still very much says what he feels needs to be said, even if only off camera. His character is still intact. I suppose this sort of subtle humour often goes over the heads of the critics.
Miss fielding is very attractive, she pulls some funny expressions in Ep 2 which I think was a reaction to Coogan's acting and Susannah was not in character.
