In my mind Mark Lamarr was still the epitome of the Buzzcocks host - a comedian with an extensive music knowledge who could ad-lib anything related to the genre. Glad to see the return of a full time host.

Yeah a good choice with a comedian, as most of the guest hosts were good inc the Hoff, but i do miss Simon Amstell & his sarcastic wit especially the one with yer man from the Nutty boys & yer man from Blue.

As no one was safe on the show especially when he read the intros of the guests.

I'm glad they went with a comedian, as opposed to an old musician like they were doing during their run of guest presenters. The writing was still good, but it doesn't have the same edge to it when you can clearly see Michael Bolton reading off the autocue
