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.

"...anarchic, violent, and destructive -- but on the same note it was ironic, satirical, and very drool. It wore many hats and wore them well...  3B Theater
"Take Monty Python, add punk rock, marinate in hallucinogenic love drugs, and half bake until done.  Nicholas Sylvain, DVD Verdict

Rik Mayall and Ben Elton's inspired comic invention benefits from surreal, unusual writing and hilarious, spontaneous performances. This collection contains every episode of the beloved program, which ran on the BBC from 1982 to 1984, and contains music by bands of the era such as Madness and Motorhead as well as excellent guest performances from then-unknown comediennes Jennifer Saunders and Emma Thompson. The EXTRA STOOPID edition includes a welter of bonus material including interviews, documentaries, commentary, and a reunion featurette.

Professional Reviews

BFI Screen Online 8 of 10
The Young Ones was unlike any other previous sitcom. Instead of sticking to familiar story structures and neat resolutions, The Young Ones took an almost surrealist approach to sitcom, with the story frequently departing on random tangents to completely unrelated characters and jokes. In this respect the influence of sketch shows such as Monty Python's Flying Circus (BBC, 1969-74) and Spike Milligan's Q (BBC, 1969-80) can clearly be seen...Just as Monty Python incorporated animated sequences, The Young Ones featured puppets, including the house's resident rats, and Vyvyan's pet hamster. As well as sketches and stand-up comedy, most episodes also featured a musical number performed by then-current bands like Madness and Dexy's Midnight Runners. It often seemed more like a bizarre variety show than a sitcom...Just twelve episodes of The Young Ones were made, broadcast in two series in 1982 and 1984, though it has remained one of Britain's best-loved sitcoms, still recalled with affection despite the fact that much of it has noticeably dated, with jokes about Margaret Thatcher's government, police brutality (in the wake of the 1981 Brixton riots), video nasties and the Bomb. - Hannah Hamad
