Hippy Neil, nerdy Cliff Richard obsessed Rick, psychopathic
punk Vyvyan and smooth Mike share a squalid and collapsing house
The very surreal and anarchic adventures featured in "The
Young Ones" bought a whole new type of comedy to TV in
the early 80s. Bizarre plots, 'comic asides' and 'musical interludes'
were all included in the mad, rude, very violent, unpredictable
and deliberately infantile world which was "The Young Ones".
Its alternative and aggressive style of comedy has certainly
left a mark, like many other classics only a few episodes were
ever made of this sitcom, yet everyone has heard about it! Everyone
should watch "The Young Ones" even if they are just
doing it to star spot, many (if not most) of British comedy's
finest stars made a cameo appearance in the show. Watch.
