Episode 2 was superb, really superb. It feels like Coogan’s fully warmed up and 100% back to being Alan whereas as he wasn’t *quite* there last week.

Also, Jenny is properly saucy 👍

I love her a little bit. I think it's because she reminds me of the first girl to properly break my heart. That can't be healthy.

Just watched the 2nd episode and thought it was great again this week, with parts of it just brilliant to watch. I don't want to say too much about it and spoil it, but the sequence when Partridge takes a seat at the back of the audience made me laugh more than I have laughed in a while, as did the anagram.

Yep that bloke at the end of the back row, so subtly done I almost missed it the first time will be hard to top.

i think more focus on the actual show this week (as aposed to the behind the scenes) worked better.

I watched episode 2 again at lunch today and it really is something quite special.

I found myself pausing when they showed the programs John had presented to see if anything was amusing lurking in the background, but nothing stood out. I hadn’t spotted this tweet first time round, though.

There's usually a drop-off from the 1st to 2nd episode in most TV shows isn't there? Then it picks up a bit towards the end and the season finale usually has strong viewing figures.

There's always going to be a drop off after the first episode. But especially when the first episode is 'event' television, with Radio Times covers and a huge social media event (the email) to remind people that it's on. A bunch of people are going to check it out and decide it isn't for them (which is ALWAYS going to be the case with comedy), and a bunch of others will have forgotten what night of the week it is, and watch it on catch-up.
