    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.
    With adverts, it wasn't really an hour but I take your point, was a touch long. Needs more Michael and Lynn though

    Was funny tonight but the book excerpts were clearly filler material, considering they came straight out the book.

    Thought Robert Popper did a good job as Martin.. I mean... Chris. Very awkward and stiff like all the presenters on these types of pretentious shows! Also loved the audience, very Radio 4!

    Made me laugh a lot tonight, some of Coogan's expressions and mannerisms were brilliant. Loved the little look he gave after he spoke about his dad reading children's books :D

    Arse. Actually, is that part of the free package? Think it's time to thieve the account settings off my parents!

    Yeah, I think it's free, I've not noticed them trying to charge me for it at least.

    You got a 360? Use your parents account to watch it on the Sky Player, or Sky Go or whatever it's called.

    Bit disappointed by the book chat show special - some amusing moments, but mostly felt like an extended plug for the book. Which is great, btw - especially the audiobook, read by Coogan in character.

    Is next week's Mid-Morning Matters new or just the stuff from the interweb?

    Interweb stuff. But there's rumours of a brand new one-off I'm Alan Partridge on Sky Atlantic later in the year and of course the movie now confirmed (with Ianucci's involvement) for next year.

    Really?

    I was under the impression next weeks Mid-Morning matters was all new as it's 6, 30 minute episodes which is a lot more than the material made for Fosters last year.

    Edit: Oh and I just noticed that a new Adam Buxton show starts next week after Mid-Morning Matters. Now all Sky have to do is bring back Fist of Fun and they will have the perfect retro (for the 90's) alt-comedy line up on our screens.

    So far the new stuff has been very disappointing imo. Just not very funny.

    It's missing the interruptions with supporting characters like Lynn and Michael. Too much focus on him. Doesn't work somehow.

    Was this a one off special then? Was expecting a second episode to be out about now (to download that is...)

    First one was "ok"...30 mins too long as others have said and not actually a patch on Mid Morning Matters which I rate very highly.

    @M83J01P97 - actually they recorded 12 Mid Morning Matters episodes for Fosters, each one about 10 to 15 minutes long. So if they are showing 6 x 30mins on Sky (plus advert breaks) it may well just be a repeat of those.

    Looking at the viewing numbers on Youtube, MMM didnt get seen by as many people as it deserves anyway..."This tea tastes like chicken"

    Hmm maybe, but I'm pretty sure Sky were hyping up all the Partridge stuff as being new and exclusive, so I kind of thought the Mid-Morning matters series was going to be the same format as the Fosters stuff, but expanding into 6 episodes.

    This weeks and last weeks episodes were one offs yes.

    According to the Sky Atlantic website:

    A specially re-edited version of the webseries ALAN PARTRIDGE MID MORNING MATTERS: SPECIAL EDITION will also be shown on Sky Atlantic HD from late June.

    Re-edited to mean taking out the Fosters logos at the start. Pretty cheap that it's not new material but like I said above at least more people will get to see MMM.

    Pretty pointless though considering the whole series is on YouTube anyway.

    Watched this, got to say it's a shadow of his former glory so far imo.Hope it finds a rhythm and picks up.

    Catching up with Mid Morning Matters in DVD. They get better and better. The one where he interviews himself is great. He's just uncontrollably Alan. Even just watching him peel an orange is funny.

    Gun Bird was my favourite. Although if they actually release a film called Alpha Papa I'll be very pleased.
