5.0 out of 5 stars "That was another mid morning where mid-morning... mattered"
I stumbled upon this series purely by luck when it was originally released on Fosters' YouTube channel (sadly now removed so they can flog the DVD but check out their all-new Fast Show sketches before they take those down too). I also discovered that a couple of episodes are available on the FGW train carriages with in-built screens & found that despite repeat viewing &...

3.0 out of 5 stars if you won't do it, Sky will...
It was worth experimenting with a 'webcam' series entirely from inside Alan's radio studio, and - like Pear Tree Productions' Inner City Sumo concept - part of the appeal to Sky was no doubt that it was 'very cheap to make'. It does come at an artistic cost, though: it's very confining, and not only because the studio is a small one. It's lost that priceless over-the-top...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Return To Form, 3 Feb 2013
This review is from: Alan Partridge - Mid-Morning Matters [DVD] (DVD)
`Alan Partridge: Mid Morning Matters' is a welcome return for Norwich's most famous son, and Steve Coogan's best-loved comic character, after a long absence from our screens. Starting life as an online series before being bolted together into half-hour (or thereabouts) TV episodes, it takes the form of a studio webcam recording Alan at work at his new home of North Norfolk Digital. The strength of the series lies in the fact that it's back-to-basics Partridge - he's such a well-observed and layered creation, and Steve Coogan appears to inhabit the character so fully, that a character-based piece such as this really works. Both the TV and online versions are available in this set - the latter work slightly better than the former for me - and although it's a shame that we're lacking the kind of extensive extras package than previous Partridge DVDs have enjoyed, `Mid Morning Matters' is well worth your time.

This review is from: Alan Partridge - Mid-Morning Matters [DVD] (DVD)
Obviously this is classic Alan and I will happily watch it a hundred times and more, but the luke warm review is because of the lack of the 2 one offs, firstly the one following Alan around norwich, and secondly, the book review show...I wouldnt mind if these were seperatly available, but they aint....and it feels like an incompleat series because of it

The show is great but the DVD is missing two SKY Atlantic shows, 'Alan Partridge: Welcome to the Places of My Life' and 'Alan Partridge on Open Books with Martin Bryce.'

Why SKY didn't include them I don't know?

1.0 out of 5 stars So disappointing, 18 April 2013

This review is from: Alan Partridge - Mid-Morning Matters [DVD] (DVD)
I have always been a big Alan Partridge fan. What's great about all the previous series was his interaction with the other characters. This by comparison was limited and sterile, it left me cold.
I was so disappointed.

Pretty average really, not a patch on the original run of Alan Partridge shows. Quite funny in places but not that funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you pay for this you're a fool, 9 Nov 2012
This review is from: Alan Partridge - Mid-Morning Matters [DVD] (DVD)
I downloaded this from You Tube when it was originally put up by Fosters. So I've got it all for free. If you didn't do the same then you must now feel like Alan when he can't find his driving gloves. Whereas I feel like Michael after he went to Cardiff, had full sex with a woman and came back on the coach.

A-HA!!!!!!!

This review is from: Alan Partridge - Mid-Morning Matters [DVD] (DVD)
Extremely disappointed. I was looking forward to the return of Alan Partridge as the previous series had been great. I did not have Sky at the time it was shown on Sky Atlantic so had to wait for this DVD release, wish I had not bothered, it is not funny and is incredibly boring.

Had expected better - no wonder Alan Partridge is reduced to working on North Norfolk Digital...wish I hadn't bothered. Now I know why we don't have Sky.
