At least it is coming back I suppose, I Looove Buzzcocks and Bill Bailey and Mr Jupitus when he's having a good day so yay for its return... Kind of wish Ricky Wilson didn't have a day job so he could stay presenter as it was a fantastic half hour but I'm sure Mr Amstell will do a good job as long as girls aloud or Rachel Stevens aren't guests...

Simon Amstell named as new host!

http://www.chortle.co.uk/news/aug06/buzzcocks228804.php

I'm disappointed Lamarr is not coming back but Amstell was excellent as guest host

Lamarr was becoming a one trick pony, a slew of in-jokes at the start & then tiresome unfunny slagging off of predictable pop targets. Saw Amstell do his one off stint, he was OK but maybe they should have a new host each week like HIGNFY as Buzzcocks has become a bit stale.

Its a pity Lamarr has left because, one trick pony or not, I enjoyed the 'trick' and thought he was a great host. However, Amstell is a good replacement, and at least there's the possibility Lamarr will one day come back - unlike a certain Mr. Deayton...

Because I never got to see Amstell's guest appearance in March and because Lamarr was one of the main reasons i watched the show, I was very anxious to see if it would work when the new episode started. And I think it did!

I thought the show was very funny and there seems to be a good vibe between the new host and the two captains    Loved it when Amstel recycled some of Lamarr's old jokes which got left behind

He does remind me a bit of Cillian Murphy's role as Kittin in Breakfast on Pluto... dunno why... (but it's a compliment in a weird way!! )

Bill Oddie is an odd, odd, odd, odd, odd man and I think Simon Amstell is doing a decent job.

Well I saw yesterday's episode and I was left a bit confused, but I was still laughing. I think I was laughing at Bill Oddie, who was just rambling on like an old drunk bum who is discussing the world's problems. It was a bit weird, but it was funny in a way. The one thing I did not like was the Diva or Beaver bit. In my eyes, it just seemed pointless in a way. I do hope it does not happen again, but I do somehow doubt it. I do like Anstell, still think he is a funny guy.

Bill Oddie was genius especially when he scuppered the rude bird name ‘gag’. Other than that this show is well past its sell by date.

I still like it, mainly for Bill (Bailey, that is - whenever Oddie gets involved with comedy now, it's like he gets a 'Nam flashback and goes berserk, poor guy).

Since his Shooting Stars tenure (I think he learnt a lot from Vic & Bob), Mark Lamarr became more than just a presenter and I watched it for him as much as Bill, but Amstell just seems like he's trying too hard and his "comedy" seems more forced.  Almost like he's not overly comfortable doing it.  I'll carry on watching it, but I think its golden period is over.

I think Amstell's been a bit hit and miss so far but I still like him. He just needs to stop trying too hard, which is kind of understandable given that it's his real big break.
Oddie was genius last night. I didn't think it was possible for anybody on the show to be more spaced out and surreal than Bailey. Even he seemed bemused by some of it.

I found Bill Oddie a bit cringeworth to watch, and I have to say I did find Diva or Beaver rather funny, and i liked Simon's hats! The credits were the best bit with the fadeouts hahahaha

I was surprised that no one said something along the lines of "Bill Bailey can now be released into society and safely accepted as a normal person".  But then I can't imagine anyone other than Lamarr saying that.

I actually felt sorry for Bill (Oddie) - a lot of people don't realise that his time as a comedian damaged him mentally (I think he only subtly alluded to it once) - over exhaustion, depression, in fact I have heard many people suggest he might be manic depressive.  Whatever, the fact remains he always comes across as an annoying loon when he's on a comedy program now (compare his Buzzcocks appearance with any serious interviews, and you'll see a completely different person).

I'm sure I remember him talking about his breakdown when he did that 'Who Do You Think You Are' programme for the Beeb. You're right he does seem like a bit of a manic.

I think the Amstel is doing a good job, was sick of Lamarr anyway. Think Huey Fun Lovin Criminal was better as guest presenter though, should have give him the job, not like his band is pulling the crowds in anymore.

I dont watch it with any regularity but the last two weeks Ive tuned in and nearly pissed myself laughing. I have never really liked the new presenter guy but think he really does a good job with Phil and Bill (who I love).

I really like Mark Lamarr and he was one of the main reasons for me tuning in but to be fair to Simon Anstell I actually think he's doing a really good job.

I couldn't stand Mark Lamarr towards the end, he didn't make me laugh but he wouldn't shut up either.  Simon Amstell has been a massive success in my opinion and has really injected the show with some much needed energy.

So far so good, Amstell has been excellent, and the shows have been hilarious. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

I think Amstell is a perfect replacment to Lamarr. Lamarr was becoming rather tedious in his approach and the show definately benefits from Amstell's different take on being host. All seem to be having alot of fun. The best thing is that the show hasn't been dumped!

Did anyone see Buzzcocks yesterday? Jeez Louise it seemed like another one where the guest is just wacky or mad or something like that, and Bailey did not say a word. He just looked bemused, going why am I here with this crazy Amy Winehouse lady. Meh, hopefully they can even it out and give the crazy guest on Phil's side.

Mampers.

She certainly behaved in a very bizarre manner, which could have been down to the fact that she was (possibly) extremely pissed.

Last night's show was not a very good one, imo. It needs more Bill!

I found it hilarious.

Amstell is doing a great job.

Next week is John Barrowman as a gueststar apparantly...could we have references to Shark Attack 3 being made?

Didn't like last nights episode. I found it more uncomfortable than funny, and I think Bill felt the same given his quietness. There's a thin line between being cheeky and being nasty and Amstell tends to cross it a little too often for my liking. Lamarr got away with it because he didn't ever come across as smug. What was with Amstell's obsession with Penny whatshername? And calling Ben Elton a sellout is such a cliche. Is it 2001 again? Hopefully next week will improve.

Im probably in the minority but I thought Amy Winehouse was quite funny, when she didnt have her sulk face on that is.

I do feel sorry for Bill though. First Oddie and now her. Why does Phil never get the crazies?

I have to agree. She might have been lago but she made good entertainment.

This series with Amstell is as good as any with Lamar. He doesn't hold back and I like that. That bird frm GMTV deserved everything she got

Agreed. I'm really afraid Bill will bail(ey .. ) out of the show entirely if this continues.. Which would really be a shame! I thought the last show was mostly about sex & drugs.. and was seriously lacking rock 'n roll...
