    That graph of the Decreasing Effectiveness of Chocolate on an Angry Wife was pure The Day Today and had me nearly crying with laughter. Tim Key is also a comic genius.

      It's a little bit strange seeing differing posts. We have a total affinity with Alan Partridge because he is cringing. We loved David Brent for being the same. It's great comedy and it gets your spine tingling, it's like ... nooooo don't go there. But I am like watching a comedian that has lost his way now. Tonight, I did not find funny. But I hope it gets better. Armando not writing this is a big thing.

      He stopped writing a while back, in fact there is more "non-Armando" Partridge. Mid Morning Matters, The Books, The Film, Scissored Isle all done without Armando.

      They had taken the character has far as it could go - then these two brothers stepped in. In my opinion (and it is only that) he moved away from simply being another sitcom character and got much much better.

      Scissored Isle (if you haven't watched) it probably the funniest and cleverest thing Partridge has ever been in.

      I had to watch this twice, I liked it much more the second time.

      Do you know what, such a cultured response, I may just do that, watch it again.

      This time with Alan Partridge seems as if it's more David Brent hosting a tv show than Partridge. It was more about all the anxiety and awkwardness Partridge was putting himself through rather than his 'i'm in charge' approach he usually portrays.

      Hopefully through the episodes, he starts to relax and be more his brutal self.

      Yes, I think that was my favourite bit. The Day Today graphics and presentation combined with Alan using an ill-judged, out-dated metaphor.

      On first viewing I'd give it 7/10, enjoyable but I think it will take a couple of episodes to really get going. I'll definitely be watching it again though, as other people have said I'm sure there are bits I missed.

      I would love to see another I'm Alan Partridge series, as @The Clamp says his best stuff is following his day-to-day life.
      People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis. You can't trust people.
