This was terrible last night and didn't get my full attention like it usually does. I think it has run it's course now.

Obviously the mods are Lamarr fans and have taken offence..

Very observant.

Does anyone else think that They think it's all over has gone the way of buzzcocks and outstayed it's welcome?
I'm not sure whether it's because David and Gary have gone or what but it's just not as good. I actually preferred it in the days of Lee Hurst.

When Lamarr started hitting Bill Bailey i felt slightly uncomfortable. And after 5 minutes of him hitting Bill Bailey i gave up and switched over.

I tried my best to ignore Lamarr hitting him and completely cracked up at some of the answers he was giving to the next lines!

I 'd agree with most of what people have said. I used to really like this show but Mark Lamarr is out of control and its just not funny anymore

Most disappointing.

Well, I thought it was one of the best ones I've seen.

Mind you - I've been to see Mark Lamarr and Bill Bailey live (on seperate occasions, and they were both fantastic), so I wouldn't really mind if it WAS the Lamarr and Bailey show (tm).

Never Mind the Buzzcocks...!

New series started last night and whilst watching it, the thought struck me...'didn't this used to be funny?'. A few smiles were forthcoming for sure, but it seems the show has turned into the Mark Lamarr show...and what an incredibly annoying tosser he is!! He takes a mildly amusing one-liner and turns it into a tedious 5 minute tirade, where the only one laughing is him...and the canned laughter track. He can give Brent a run for his money in the disbelieving embarrassment stakes.

...after 10 minutes I had the overwhelming desire to put on a pair of golf shoes and jump up and down on his stupidly smug head

...oh, and while I think about last night's telly...'Dead Ringers' completed an hour of complete crap on BBC2 last night, I can only assume it was better on radio...it makes Alastair Mcgowan(?) look like a total genius...which he ain't! :rolleyes:

Was pretty funny tonight. The bit at the end has left me wanting to go find somewhere which has a barbershop quartet singing.

Don't believe it - I gave the heads up and then forgot about it myself! Can't see that its repeated either (as it used to be in previous series).

It's repeated next Saturday at Midnight.

I think its lost its way as well. I think Lamarr goes over the top because he cant get anyone like Marilyn anymore to come on the show so can he can mercilessly pull apart and try to get a reaction.

I don't think Phil Jupitus is as funny as he used to be either.
