Summary

Alan returns to podcasting, offering his unique perspective on life’s big questions, the hot-button issues of the day, his professional successes and the most intimate details of his personal life in a series he is already calling ‘seminal’. The second series will come partly from the oasthouse—in order to satisfy people who'd rather he didn’t mess with the format—and partly from other locations—to appeal to those who found the original format a bit limiting.

Moribund

As a dedicated F.O.P this disappointed me. Alan revolves ...he doesn't evolve. Alot of content is rehashed. He's dumbed down...whereas I want to dumb up.

Series 1 great, series 2 recycled and weak

Just nowhere near as good as the first… it’s like Steve Coogan lived up to the parody he jokes about in series 1 - dashing to meet an Audible deadline! Just lots of recycling, nowhere near as funny and a big disappointment. Half the length, half the quality. A couple of good moments but not really worth your time.

Comedy genius

The reason I’d got audible was for the first oasthouse, now for a constant replaying of this second round of rambling, comedy genius, the most layered comedy character ever. Incredible

Alan... Alan! Alan? Alan!!

This sends emotions going in my head like... trainers... in a washing machine.
Alan may not complete me, but he always finish's me off.

Funny and forgettable

Not quite as good as the first series as there's no real narrative thread running through it and some of the episodes are a little too random. There are also points where it feels more like a reading of a new Alan Partridge autobiography, rather than a scripted podcast.

It's probably funnier than the first series though, despite the reuse of a couple of jokes. There's also more music, some of which is very amusing (the Henry VIII song springs to mind). I just wish the whole thing was a little longer, felt more natural and had better structure.

Just as amazing as the first season!

I loved it! Wouldn't expect anything less from Steve Coogan. A great background for a drive or a walk around town. I only wish it was longer!

Classic Partridge

Coogan is a genius in both writing and performance. Living in the States now it is like having an old friend come to visit. My only complaint is that there isn’t enough of it and it would have been great to have the next tranche included. But it is abso-bloody-exactly what I needed. Steve, if you see this, you are helping us through some tough days and as a comedian, actor etc.. you probably don’t realize how special, how valuable you are. Thank You

Genius

Genius. End of story. Listened 4 times back to back and kept discovering more and more jokes I’d missed.

Steve Cohan at his best!

Alan Partridge and his shenanigans never disappoint to make me laugh with his better-than-you attitude told nonchalantly. Great listen while driving and at work!

Alan is back from the Oasthouse

Happy there is more of this. Not quite as good as the previous series, a bit more disjointed, but still a good way to spend a few hours and well worth the money

from Conference with Steve Coogan

Partridge has morphed into Steve Coogan. An annoyingly smug lefty git. A shame. Partridge was always a character Coogan struggled to understand. But Coogan should be more aware at this stage how unbearable he is except to a small coterie of middle class socialists. More Partridge less Steve Coogan please.

If I played this podcast to William Shakespeare it would blow his mind

So happy to see this brilliant podcast return, even better than season 1 if that is even possible.

Lazy

Think Steve Coogan has tapped the Partridge well completely dry at this point. Reusing ancient jokes, telling the same “meh” joke ten times, just repeating words again and again to use up time (it’s not funny - was funny in WNTTAA with the Wikipedia articles), the complete lack of even a joke plot… it’s just bad. I’m a big fan of Partridge but with the live show being a flop and now this, I’m pretty sure it’s time to give him a picture of a Spitfire and let him go.
