Description

Often described as a sitcom with a difference, The Young Ones features the lunatic exploits of four students of Scumbag College: Vyv, the punk (Adrian Edmonson); “socially aware” and “politically conscious” Rick (Rik Mayall); Neil, the hippy (Nigel Planer); and Mike, the well-dressed smoothie (Christopher Ryan). They share a dilapidated house in North London owned by their dodgy landlord Jerzy Balowski (Alexei Sayle). They are the least compatible house-mates it is possible to imagine, and when they are not tearing pieces out of each other, they manage to get involved in the most bizarre of comic escapades.
