Yeah saw it earlier, very funny although I don't like his sidekick much.

It's brilliant, can always expect good stuff when Armando Iannucci is involved.

@ bringing a washbag and smints so he could freshen up before Anthea turned up.

I wasn't all that impressed with the trailer, but that clip just turned out to just be the unfunniest part of the episode. I hope he gets to leave the studio! It isn't Alan Partridge unless we get to see him drive around in his Lexus (or in this case his Toyota Avensis )

Did you actually like the I'm Alan Partridge series'? I can't see anyone who used to watch it and love it calling this rubbish by any stretch of the imagination, especially for a web series it's brilliant.

mamboboy - Due do the budget of it and also by the trailer, I imagine it will 100% be in the studio.

I got the impression that that's the whole point of the format; filmed as if it's a webcast thing of his show.

I really enjoyed it. Apart from one or two lines, it didn't feel forced at all, and certainly had that cringe worthy awkwardness he does so well.

didn't like the end bit (treadmill). maybe i missed something because i wasn't 100% watching it, but he just looked like steve coogan - or one of his characters from saxondale - and not at all in character.
