all good except last 2 chapters..

Very very funny and easy to visualise. I didn't miss a thing for all chapters except last 2. they were recrded very low volume, I coauld bearly distinguish the voices of the behind the scenes of Alan partridges crew. Some good laughs there when I did hear properly but were spoilt because I had to relisten to portions to get the joke.

classic queen! a good insight into early Partridge

quality is lacking in the audio but I laughed aloud many a time. as a Partridge enthusiast I always enjoy hearing more about his "life". the coogan commentary at the end is interesting too.

The beginnings of Alan’s TV career

Fabulous stuff here from the Partridge team, back when Alan had what I consider the best aura and story around the way he acted and worked. I’m not a big fan of current Alan and this was at the pinnacle of his powers. You can see how this radio show influenced the characters of the TV show version, with some characters directly worked into a different character on TV, but having the same slip ups and jokes. Enjoyable to listen to in your Rover or Lexi (plural).

great stuff!

Good to finally have all the episodes in one place, rather than wasting credits on them separately. The extra, behind-the-scenes mockumentary was a nice addition and a precursor to the later tv shows. However, the bonus Steve Coogan interview was pointless, Private Eye O.B.N (Order of the Brown Nose) sycophancy that serves only to blur the line between where he ends and Partridge begins.

This is not the 'complete' collection....

what there is, is hilarious, but it's not what it says it is in that there's an entire series missing from the 'complete collection,' so I do feel a bit cheated, maybe a bit hard done by. just be aware.

good all-round comedy

made me chuckle. hadn't started much in the 20 years since was made. recommend at least a bit of background knowledge to the character.
