This is great banter... it really is
20 November 2019 | by MGPT80See all my reviews

Mid Morning Matters may well be one of the most underappreciated comedy shows ever made. Alan Partridge's transition from clumsy self-absorption to misplaced pomposity has been handled almost perfectly by Steve Coogan.

While I will probably always consider 'I'm Alan Partridge' to be his greatest work, this show is arguably a greater demonstration of Coogan's observational skills. The balance between uproarious slapstick comedy and the sardonic take on UK media is exquisitely executed, with expert assistance from some perfectly conceived co-characters.

This is a show that should be watched at least 3 or 4 times to allow the deeper subtleties to fully emerge. It may not have as many instant high payoff moments as earlier Partridge material, but the precise attention to detail makes it a real gem for satire lovers.

Overall rating: 84/100
