I get what he's saying, but SURELY that's what made it so good?
It's not as if guests got an easy ride when Lamarr was hosting.
I think his aged cynicism worked better than Amstell's youthful cynicism
and the show was much worse for it.
But I thoroughly enjoyed Amstell.
But I don't think he really does either, does he?
I just wanted to use it as an excuse to say how much of a lovable little cunt Simon Amstell is.
NEW PARTRIDGE IS OUT AT 11AM PEOPLE I BELIEVE.
why hasnt this been advertised?
IT WAS ALL OVER EVERYTHING TODAY.
Can I talk about the bit in series 2 where he smashes up his cereal?

BUT THERE WASN'T ANY.
The problem is, I think Amstell ruined it for everyone.
Amstel was great on Buzzcocks.
but it's true.
I actually thought his brand of surreal comedy wasn't actually too bad, Simon Amstell was a bit much but he had his moments.
I am glad he is no longer associated with the programme.
I WANNA GO TO ZONINO AND DRINK STEFFI-CIDER
thinks this as well, to a certain extent.
I can't really describe it but he strikes me as a man who's very much a 'keeper of score' and would be determined to get 'vengeance' on anyone he felt had wronged him.
What's wrong with that? I'm just saying, there's something about him that reminds me of that sort of person, someone who lets things fester rather than just letting them go. I have no idea why. One day I'm sure he'll kick off, Phil Spector style.
for nicking his hilarious "lol im fat" schtick.
Cordon does it far better...
I quite like Jupitus. And he's better than Corden.
Apart from Corden's Sports Personality thing. That was good.
He grates on me now. Frequently. What with him being everywhere.
that belies his jolly fat man 'I love ska me' persona.
on 5live a while back. You got the impression he didn't like the cut of amstell's jib too much.
I have always thought there was a heart of darkness under his "jolly fat ska man" schtick.
He used to mutter and mumble and was barley coherent. In fact, he sounded awful. His music choice was OK just his delivery was awful. I'm guessing he isn't a morning person.
Anyone who spells Phil the way he does fully deserves it.
He was a lovely bloke
A painful, unfunny cunt.
Buzzcocks has been hit and miss since day 1.
why do they watch it?
He's starting today's philosophy lecture.
enter into a civil partnership with them.
I'm a bit shaky on civil partnerships/polygamy so feel free to copypasta wiki and shoot this to bits.
YOU RAGING CUNTHOLE ETC...
(just doing to you what's done to me whenever I've used that word. nuttin' personal y'understand. board rules n' that.)
Jupitus (yes, even Jupitus)
Things I don't like about Buzzcocks:
I was thinking about him the other day. I didn't know his name.
THAT first time when he was on it is one of the funniest things in broadcasting history. My Dad was laughing so hard he had to get off the sofa and lie down on the carpet. WEEPING. Never seen anything like it.
I would marry him, fo sho.
I have decided I still like Noel Fielding. I don't love him anymore, though.
Sarcasm, the lot. I can massively get on board with that.
I'm pretty sure you would dislike me.
Good day, sir.
Your appreciation of the views of the wider world might not be the most astute.
Get over yourself, love.
The show was fucking awful a series or two before that.
I don't know what the causation/correlation there is. Perhaps there is none, but the facts as stated remain.
New people can bring something fresh to the table, but the format of the show is pretty narrow, so if anyone spends too long on there it becomes stale fast once you've 'got the joke'.
In fact, judging by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Never_Mind_the_Buzzcocks#Cast everyone who's been on there should've left approximately half way through their tenure.
24 series'... sheesh.
I can imagine that that might get a bit tiresome after you've done it for a few years..
Has he left the show or something?
such as catherine tate.
I managed 30 seconds of that episode before realising I find her irritating at an almost pathological level and switched it off.
I've got better things to do than subject myself to things that are only going to annoy me and get me all Ranty. Most of the time.
Of course I would say that, not being a 15 year old girl. FUCK OFF YOUR BRAND OF BULLSHIT ISN'T WELCOME
Otherwise we could have lost PHILL JUPITUS!!!!!!!!!11
and on top of that he HATES the BBC so I'm not sure why he's still there apart from the money.
Donny is smoking! A cigarette you can legally buy in a shop!
WHAT EVEN IS THIS
So you've learnt nothing new.
