    I wouldn't say that. Sidekick Simon is as funny as shitting yourself in public but it's decent overall.

    KMKY and IAP are miles better mind.

    This is why this is good and gervais isn't imo. All about the little details.
    I'll rewatch all of this once it's over and I reckon it'll be as funny if not more

    This echoes my thoughts.

    I have watched his earlier attempts at comedy, if it is anything similar its mindless dribble.

    You have been warned.

    Certainly not a patch on his role on Mid Morning Matters. Almost feels like he was just added to the program as an afterthought. Hopefully his character gets some stronger material as Tim Key is a genuinely funny person in real-life.

    To me it's funny how the character is struggling to bring his witty radio banter to a tv show.

    It feels like it's something to fill a couple of minutes on a 30 minute show to spin out the material.

    You haven't watched this one that the thread is about, then?

    I haven’t watched this series, I’ve seen earlier stuff and found it very unfunny, cliched and in places, homophobic and transphobic.

    You missed anti semitic out of your critique.

    You're judging it even though you haven't seen it? Ok, then.

    Anything else you'd care to comment on which you haven't seen?
  14. Dear god....
  15. Im enjoying it.

    Coogan is the person Kay and Gervias should thank for their careers.

    I didn’t pick up on that personally, but I’d be the first to admit I haven’t seen every episode.

    You didn't pick up on the other stuff either, you just misinterpreted it rather than looking at who was actually the brunt of the joke.

    Is the new series similar to the other times he has played the same character? Previously I believe he has played Alan Partridge on tv, and Alan Partridge on the radio, in the new series it appears he is Alan Partridge on tv again, is this similar to the previous time he played Alan Partridge on tv?
