Never Mind the Buzzcocks

Do you think The Good Life could be remade, with me or Dave playing Tom Good (maybe not!)? If you have seen something on TV or heard something on the radio recently that you want to talk about, tell us here.

I quite liked the bloke last night - Rhod somebody. But I wasn't overly impressed with last weeks - can't even remember who it was.

I miss Bill Bailey too!

I stopped watching it when that silly little bloke took over from whoever did it originally (was it Mark Lamarr?). The silly little bloke wasn't funny and just irritated me. But I never could get the songs they were humming/la de da-ing to which irritated me even more! :lol:

However I have appeared on Buzzcocks. :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

They showed a clip from the 70s of Osibisa on TOTP which just happened to be when I was there. Luckily I was recording that episode so I have about 3 seconds of me aged about 14 doing an embarassing bop at the front of the audience. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I loved the show when Mark Lamarr did it, and was deeply suspicious of Simon Amstell. However, he was hilarious - few things get me laughing out loud on telly but I was painfully sore with laughter a couple of times with Amstell playing off Phil Jupitus - and I soon preferred him.

Recently, the show has dropped off my very short list of "must see" programmes. It's inevitable that a rotating host will be "hit or miss" but they've fared very poorly in their choices compared to, say, Have I Got News For You, with only a couple of funny hosts.

Corden, for instance, was an excellent guest who played well off Germaine Greer. But as host he was just a nice guy asking questions. No spark :(

Sadly Simon Amstell has gone :( He quit, I agree that he was perfect for the show!
The guy from the Kaiser chiefs was great when he filled in a few series ago, he would be a good replacement.

The ratings basically nosedived and Amstell took the bullet. I think he is a Marmite presenter if you get my drift.

No way, I was far too cool in 1977! It was Sunshine day in 1975.

And I've already searched, after sussing out how to use Youtube, and I'm not there :( :iconbiggrin: .

So I'm safe, phew! :mrgreen:
