Manic, madcap, rude, awesomely violent and pretty revolting actually, The Young Ones returns to DVD in October to mark its 25th Anniversary. Join Vyvyan, Rik, Neil and Mike in the grottiest student flatshare from hell in this unpredictable, swaggering, staggering, exhilarating steamroller of a sitcom!
The Young Ones infantile and surreal humour became essential viewing in the 1980’s. Representing a landmark in British comedy, there’s been nothing quite like it before or since.
Starring Rik Mayall, Ade Edmonson, Nigel Planer, Christopher Ryan and Alexei Sayle, The Young Ones humour epitomised Thatcher’s Britain, riding on the back of critically acclaimed alternative comedy such as Not The 9 O’Clock News, The Comic Strip Presents and Blackadder. The plethora of guest stars read like a who’s who of British comedy in the 80’s and 90’s and includes Keith Allen, Chris Barrie, Robbie Coltrane, Ben Elton, Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Tony Robinson, Griff Rhys Jones, Mel Smith and Emma Thompson. Famous also for its musical guest stars, the show featured appearances from many top bands of the time including Madness, Dexy’s Midnight Runners and Motorhead.
The 25th Anniversary Collection features both series one and two, including the final episode, ‘Summer Holiday’, where the main characters are killed as their double-decker bus careers off a cliff. This 3 disc DVD is jam-packed with over an hour of brand new extras; with 3 documentaries covering the making of the show, its guest stars, and the alternative comedy movement that the show has come to define.

The Young Ones brings back so many memories of sneaking upstairs to watch this on my sisters Black and White portable with the sound really low so my parents couldn't hear any 'Swear words'. A fantastic comedy masterpeice, absolute classic!
