Editorial Reviews

Steve Coogan Collection, The (DVD)

After many years of passively watching Open University on an unreliable TV in his ill-appointed flat, Onslow finds himself teaching an Open University course of his own. His philosophical observations are lavishly illustrated with classic clips from Keeping Up Appearances.

It isn't really fair to bring up Ricky Gervais in a review of a Steve Coogan boxed set but, as this is Amazon's American site and as the American audience for Ricky Gervais is exponentially larger than Coogan's, I would like to put Coogan in perspective for those who may read this and are not familiar with him.

It essentially amounts to this: as comedically brilliant as much of his work is, Gervais is second to Coogan on every level. Coogan had already mastered his awkward and annoying Alan Partridge on radio and television years before The Office, presumably while David Brent was still working his way up the management ladder at Wernham-Hogg. With less pathos and a broader appeal but equally as funny as the Brent character, Coogan crafted Partridge into a "man you love to hate" with razor sharp timing, brilliant writing (with help from people such as Armando Ianucci, another very talented Brit who has not seen much success in the States) and a sense of style somewhere in between Heathcliff Huxtable and Alex P. Keaton. Along with a stellar supporting cast the three Alan Partridge series (Knowing Me Knowing You plus series 1 and 2) are squirmy, irritating, tragicomedy gold. These alone are worth the price of admission, especially since Series 2 has never been released in the States. Without Steve Coogan there would be no Ricky Gervais. Far from being the "Gervais of the 1990s", as someone somewhere put it, Coogan is still relevant and funnier than ever and still doing brilliant comedy. Incidentally, it may come as a surprise to some people that Coogan is four years younger than Gervais.

If you're a fan of any of Steve Coogan's many, wonderful TV shows, this set is definitely the way to go. You get all of his Alan Partridge incarnations (from failing talk show host to failed), the complete run of Saxondale (about the life of a former rock music roadie in the later years of his life) and everything else. Considering the normal price of a single series of most of these shows, the value here can't be beat (and there's a lot in the set that can't be found elsewhere in North America).

My only complaint, and the reason I won't rate this 5-stars, is the packaging.
In theory, the packaging should be pretty good. Each disc has it's own thin, plastic tray and all of the trays are connected on one side (like the spine of a book). However, the problem is with the way these trays were produced - the production left a plastic burr facing the underside of each disc in each tray. These burrs could have easily been filed down (I did so with my fingernail) or the trays could have just been produced so the burr was located anywhere else on the tray and not under the disc (since it's on every tray in the same spot, it must be a problem in the mold).

As it stands, ALL 13 discs in my copy were left with marks or scratches from this production defect. I still think and hope that everything will play fine (I don't know, yet, as I haven't watched the entire set) but it's indeed a shame that such poor quality control could ruin an otherwise outstanding set.

A quick bit of advice for those in the US:
If you own a DVD player capable of region 2, PAL playback, then save yourself a bundle and buy this and just about every other UK TV series DVD that has been released in the US for NTSC at Amazon.com UK for Region 2, PAL. Even after the currency conversion you save as much as 50% on most of these DVD's (US for this Coogan DVD is $119, but at Amazon.UK it sells for--as of this date--$59.00 USD). Such titles to have been released in the US for NTSC are The IT Crowd; Spaced Definitive Collector's Edition (truly overpriced here in the States for NTSC; a real bargain at Amazon.UK Region 2, PAL); and just about every other title that has been released here in the US. In fact, the US prices are so high, that I now buy UK series exclusively Region 2, PAL. The studios here (Warner Video, in some cases) get really greedy.

It's a shame that Steve Coogan has not gotten more press here in the States. Ricky Gervais probably owes his career to Coogan among many other popular English and American comedians. He's my favorite character actor ever, and this boxed set is an excellent way to see all his seminal works from the 90's never seen on American television.
