    It felt more like Mr Hennity than Partridge in most parts. Maybe it's just the format, but it just didn't have the timing of what made the character great.

    It was "ok" not as good as the old stuff or mid morning matters.

    Partridge fans will get this reference - I found it a bit "petroly".

    I liked it, yeah it wasn't as good as the series but nothing is.

    I love the idea of putting Alan in other tv shows, I think it would make a great series to have him appearing on or hosting a different show each ep, e.g. panel show, cookery show, come dine with me, celeb BB etc.

    SSo for those who thought it was good do you also find Top gear hilarious? This is my barometer for having a terrible sense of humour.

    I have it recorded but I am not hopeful. Going in with low expectations is probably the way to go anyway I would think.

    Hate Top Gear, loved this.

    Even if it wasn't as good as the old series as people have said, that still doesn't mean it isn't amazing. It could be the funniest thing on tv right and not be nearly as good as the old series.

    I don't know why he doesn't get a slot on Radio 2, he'd fit right in.

    Richard madley tends to channel Alan Patridge when he covers Chris Evans.

    Thought this was genius. Classic Partridge with a slight twist to the format, very well done so as not to make it more of the same.

    'FLYING AIDS' :D

    "Quicker Vicker"

    It wasn't classic Partridge (probably due to Iannucci not writing it with Coogan) but it was still good. Part of me would much prefer a third series of I'm Alan Partridge though. Makes you wonder what the BBC are thinking when they won't commision more Alan Partirdge but will keep making toss like Mrs Browns Boys.

    I really enjoyed it. It was a bit hit and miss with some segments not working but still had some golden lines. "the more I learn about Hitler the less I like him" got a proper snort. Better than I expected though

    Lol at the bit when he is working on the market and calls the old woman sugar tits.

    Caught up with it just now. Maybe it's because I'm a Norfolker by birth, but I thought it was pretty funny. I liked the departure to a full Peartree Productions documentary about Alan and Norfolk, written, directed by and starring Alan Partridge. Some vintage hands-over-face cringing.

    Interested to see the other variations to come.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    It was funny, very, but where's his make up gone? He doesn't look old and slimy anymore.

    Coogan has caught up, make up no longer needed!

    I really enjoyed this. Yeah, there were some bits that didn't quite hit the mark, but overall very amusing. Particularly liked the squabbling with the car salesman during the Range Rover test drive :D

    Another one on tonight isn't there?

    It could have been a great 30mins but stretching it to the hour led to a bit too much filler for my liking.

    It still pisses all over the current crop of crap British comedy like Mrs Brown's boys.

    I really want to know if him saying the Joan Osbourne "what if god was one of us" song was by Aimee Mann was a deliberate error.

    I'm still haunted by him saying Chester was in Wales.

    I noticed that as well. Started wondering if Aimee Mann had covered it!
