I used to watch it as a young teen and thought it mildly funny then, but now its just crap. Why is it back? confused

I used to love it
Now it is extremely mediocre

I agree. I loved the nostalgia episode a few months ago, but this new series is rubbish.

I tuned in for about 5 mins. There were a couple of butchers on a slide with lumps of meat! I turned off at this point.

Back in the day, you could tell Chris Evans didn't really give a damn, but now it's a little bit too "try-hard" and it doesn't work. I think I'm too old for it now.... and so is Chris.

It has some good moments. I liked Noel Fielding and Duran Duran last night, and I think Cheryl FV actually got it which I didn't think she would.

Half an hour would probably do though.

Caught the last half of it last night for the first time since its return. I didn't think much of it. What happened to the anarchy?! Cheryl Cole ( can't remember her married name) going down a chute, puppies, baby hedgehogs and a micro pig . WTF?

but now it's a little bit too "try-hard" and it doesn't work.

I think this is it. Also, his son isnt a natural (not a criticism, mine wouldnt be either) and it makes it really clunky when he brings him on.

Noel fielding was the only reason i watched the whole way through but tbh it wasnt worth it.

I felt Cheryl struggled tbh.

Though I did like Duran Duran and Eagles of Death Metal.

I thought Cheryl entered into the spirit and she went down the slip and slide so joined in. I am not a huge fan of hers by any means.

I think it's probably best to Sky Plus and whizz through all the bits of no interest and just watch the bands and slebs you like.

Agreed, utter guff now but I wasn't a massive fan first time round. He should stick to morning radio grin

I think we have all just grown up!

It should have stayed as nostalgia.

Notimefortossers Sat 31-Oct-15 23:50:19

I don't know if it's that it's shit now or whether it was always shit and we were just at a different time in our lives when we enjoyed shit things?

SurlyCue Sat 31-Oct-15 23:55:54

Yes i think a mix of it always being that crap but it was new at the time and also having grown up and looking at it with different eyes. I agree it should have stayed as nostalgia. I dislike the current trend for reviving fads from the 90's. Its all much better in my memory. grin

I was really excited about it coming back, watched the first one, but got bored towards the end and would have been really pissed off if I was the woman that was told puppies were cuter than my baby, didn't even bother with the second ep

Always unwatchable in my view, can't stand CE, no idea why people feel he deserves his massive salaries
