The Young Ones, Series 1

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.


Loud, anarchic, surreal, juvenile and — most of all — outrageously funny comedy featuring the lunatic exploits of four students of Scumbag College: Vyv, the punk; socially aware and politically conscious Rik; Neil, the hippy; and Mike, the well-dressed smoothie. They share a dilapidated house in North London owned by their dodgy landlord Jerzy Balowski. They are the least compatible housemates imaginable and, when they are not tearing pieces out of each other, they manage to get involved in the most bizarre of comic escapades. PLEASE NOTE: We are using the raw, original broadcast material to deliver the most authentic experience we could provide. As a result, you may notice occasional glitches in video quality. This is TV the way it used to be!

Stop Whinging About the Price - Review the TV Show!

I'm getting thoroughly sick and tired of people using the opportunity to review TV programmes and the like as a message board to whinge about the prices iTunes charges. Those of you that do this are skewing the average rating and, in a way, misleading fellow consumers. The Young Ones may be 25 years old, but remains the one of the most anarchic, contemporary and above all funny TV shows that this country has ever produced. I can only imagine how the starchy suits who ran the BBC at the time must have felt as this went on air (and at times openly criticised the Corporation). Absolutely fantastic. So the choice is yours - buy it from iTunes, buy it on DVD, or don't buy it all. But this is a classic at whatever price.


Legendary comedy in its time - it really was unmissable if you were young in 1982 - the question is has it aged well and the answer is, mostly, yes. Some of the political stuff is now quite passe (although "Take that, Thatcher" still strikes a chord) but the anarchic fun of it all is undimmed and some of the riffs are fantastically off the wall (mice playing cards, dogs talking). Most of all it strikes a chord with anyone who was ever a student. We all knew a Rik...

Best Comedy Series EVER!

If you don't buy this for the genius that it was, buy it for the amazing appearances of motorhead, madness and the damned!
