What’s Alan Partridge got to do to get some water? New trailer for ‘This Time with Alan Partridge’

  • HeyUGuys
If you didn’t know Alan Partridge was returning to our television screens, where have you been? The BBC has launched a new trailer for Partridge’s return in ‘This Time with Alan Partridge.

The latest chapter in Partridge’s life will see Alan (Steve Coogan) handed a career lifeline – the chance to stand in (temporarily) as co-host on This Time, an evening weekday magazine show.

His first return to live television since his 90s chat show Knowing Me, Knowing You was cancelled after a guest was fatally shot on air, This Time is the perfect shop window for a man of Alan’s gravitas and will, or should, see him finally recognised as one of the heavyweight broadcasters of his era.

The show consisting of 6 half-hour episodes is a heady mix of consumer affairs, current affairs, viewer interaction, highbrow interview and lightweight froth; very much the sweet spots for

TV Review: ‘Sally4Ever’ on HBO

  • Variety
TV Review: ‘Sally4Ever’ on HBO
Sally (Catherine Shepherd) is not the star of her own show — or her own life. When we meet her, she’s trudging through a job in marketing (tasked with making eggs “sexy” enough to appeal to teens) and a relationship with a fellow whose meek submissiveness is portrayed as something almost grotesque. He doesn’t realize, or chooses not to, that Sally sneaks out of their shared bed one night to go to a club and returns drunk and coated in glitter. There, she connects with Emma, an ultracharismatic woman whose lack of self-awareness is its own gift: It allows her to shamelessly grift her way through life, convincing the gullible, including Sally, to give her whatever she wants.

HBO’s co-production with the U.K.’s Sky airs after Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner’s “Camping” remake and shares DNA with the original “Camping,” another comedy of (bad) manners created by Julia Davis.

‘Sally4Ever’ Review: Watch HBO’s Painfully Funny Cringe Comedy at Your Own Risk
Imagine if, a few episodes into the first season of the Steve Carell version of The Office, NBC opted to pair it on a lineup with Extras, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s follow-up to the UK original Office. That would have seemed strange, right? Even for the millions of viewers who’d never heard of David Brent before, there would’ve been an unsettling degree of overlap in the two shows’ comic voices, Extras proving itself to be harsher than the American Office ultimately wanted to be. It would

Dangerous Visions: new sci-fi season coming to BBC Radio 4

Louisa Mellor Jun 19, 2017

BBC Radio 4 will scratch your sci-fi itch with a whole season of programming including Ray Bradbury, Kafka, and original comedy and drama…

Escape the rapidly unfurling dystopia outside by tuning into a season of sci-fi on BBC Radio 4. Dangerous Visions, the BBC’s yearly dose of classic and original sci-fi radio programming, returns this week… with a difference. The nation being sorely in need of a laugh, Dangerous Visions 2017 has made the decision to include some comedy alongside the existential nightmares.

See related Pokemon Go has already made $14m

First up on the comic side of things is a version of Kafka’s absurd satire The Metamorphosis starring Tim Key, Tom Basden and Felicity Montagu. Alongside that is original dystopian comedy Perimeter, a tale of two siblings living in a city divided by an enormous electric fence, written by and starring Liam Williams and Josie Long.

A new reading of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 is joined by two original dystopian dramas, Siege and Culture. The former is a three-part thriller telling the story of the Far Right coming to power in 2020 France, while the latter is a vision of the world in which antibiotics have stopped working and the lives of those without medical insurance are decided by the shadowy ‘Quartermaster’. Finally, there’s an adaptation of Arthur Koestler’s 1940 totalitarian nightmare Darkness At Noon.

The season kicks off on Saturday the 24th of June with Kafka’s Metamorphosis at 2.30pm. Here's a short clip to whet your appetite.

All episodes will be available to listen to on BBC iPlayer for a period after transmission and the full listings can be found here.

Theatre Review: Pride and Prejudice (UK Tour)

Pride and Prejudice review: ‘It is a truth universally accepted that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife’.

Simon Rede’s most recent adaptation of the novel by Jane Austin of the same name is a play to be greatly enjoyed. It is a humorous tale of life in Georgian England through the eyes of Mrs Bennet and her five daughters all of marriageable age, whose challenge is to see her daughters make good marriages.

Felicity Montagu is excellent as Mrs Bennet and fusses and attends to her daughters and husband’s needs, but seems frustrated at times by the role dictated to her by society. Her five daughters seem to echo the different strands of her personality, which is all gently tolerated by Mr Bennet (Matthew Kelly). The arrival of Mr Bingley (Jordan Mifsud) gets Mrs Bennet’s hopes up that one of her daughters,

Pride and Partridge: Felicity Montagu's comedy gold with Coogan and Austen

She played the loyal Pa to Norwich’s deluded DJ and the cake-scoffing vicar’s wife in Nighty Night. Now back on stage as Mrs Bennet, Felicity Montagu explains why humour is a deadly serious business

“I don’t want to scene-steal,” Felicity Montagu tells me. But perhaps she just can’t help herself, given the whirlwind of accents – Aussie, northern, estuary, Rp – that she uses to animate her anecdotes in our hour together. Certainly, she has pinched scenes from some of comedy’s biggest names – whether as Lynn, the tight-lipped, long-suffering Pa to Alan Partridge, or as Sue, the voluptuous, cake-scoffing vicar’s wife in Nighty Night. Then there’s that hugely satisfying scene in the first Bridget Jones film, where Montagu’s sloaney Perpetua – all Alice band, pearls and raised eyebrows – rises sharply from her swivel chair to witness Bridget quit her job. “Because if she gives one inch,

Dad's Army review

facebook

twitter

google+

The new take on Dad's Army gives a standout role to Toby Jones. Here's our review of the new comedy.

Don't panic! Oliver Parker's big screen version of classic British sitcom Dad's Army (48 years old this year) is remarkably faithful to Jimmy Perry and David Croft's much-loved original and by no means the travesty that some had feared. It benefits chiefly from a note-perfect cast and a warm glow of reverential nostalgia that pervades the entire project, but it's slightly let down by a meandering script and the playing-it-safe comedy moments tend to generate amused smiles rather than out-and-out laughter.

Set in 1944, in the fictional seaside town of Walmington-on-Sea, the film stars Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring, the leader of an elderly platoon of the Home Guard that comprises Oxford-educated Sergeant Wilson (Bill Nighy), doddery Private Godfrey (Michael Gambon), excitable Lance Corporal Jones (Tom Courtenay

Don’t Panic! The Dad’s Army trailer is here

I’m not sure how well the upcoming Dad’s Army movie will fare anywhere other than the UK, but the TV show on which it is based is absolutely loved here, and judging by the first teaser trailer for the film, which has just been released, we’re all in for a treat.

The teaser doesn’t feature much footage, but from what we can see, the cast, particularly Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring and Michael Gambon, who is absolutely spot-on with Godfrey.
