Somebody Shoot the DJ!

I'm a fan of British comedy - but still new to the concept of British TV (other than what I can get on BBC America).

This invariably guts the idea behind the shows and destroys the very magic and character that makes them work. Because of this, I approached Alpha Papa with some trepidation, but thankfully Alan has survived the process intact and what we have in this film is really little more than a feature length episode of the programme, but let's face it, that's all true Partr...
