Plus All New Special Features!
|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 a myriad of 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.|
"Take Monty Python, add punk rock, marinate in hallucinogenic love drugs, and half bake until done. Nicholas Sylvain, DVD Verdict
