Thurs 11/17: Alan Partridge: Scissored Isle (Seeso)
Though he’s only had a fleeting relationship with Hollywood, comedian Steve Coogan is quite well known in England, and his most recognizable character Alan Partridge has a new mockumentary. The plot of this special is a perfect introduction, finding city-dweller Alan on an idyllic road trip through Northern England in a Land Rover Defender with his dog by his side. The program shines in the interactions between this fictionalized character and the people from the U.K. countryside that he has been known to insult. If you enjoy this, be sure to check out The Trip featuring Coogan on another European adventure.
