DVD

Overview

A mad, helter-skelter, rude, awesomely violent, unpredictable, swaggering, staggering, joyously infantile, exhilarating steamroller of a sitcom, The Young Ones provided the breakthrough for the new generation of aggressive and forthright "alternative" comedians. With surreal comedic scenarios and myriad guest stars -- including Emma Thompson and Hugh Laurie -- and musical non-sequiturs featuring Dexy's Midnight Runners and Motorhead, the style of The Young Ones gave the show its individuality, which remains cutting-edge to this day. The 12 episodes of The Young Ones aired between November 1982 and June 1984 on Britain's BBC1.

remember that episode where Neil gets so high he floats up to the moon and the little aliens are like, "oh gross, another hippy," and they push him back to earth? that was great.
