I did a search and found nothing.

For those of you who don't know, The Young Ones is a comedy about four students living in Britian in the 1980s during the Thatcher era. It is possibly the best program ever made.

Starring-

Vyvyan (Ade Edmonson)- A very violent Punk taking a medical course at college. Owns a yellow Ford Anglia with red flames on the sides, and attacks Rick and Neil frequently. Has the ability to create potions that transform people into axe-wieling homicidal maniacs.

Rick (Rik Mayall)- A self-proclaimed anarchist who studies sociology and domestic science. Believes himself to be the most popular flatmate despite the fact Vyvyan calls him not a friend, but a 'complete bastard'. He calls himself the spokesperson of a generation and is always trying to impress others with non-existent wit and talent.

Neil (Nigel Planer)- A tall, gangly hippie and vegetarian. Is frequently abused by all the other flatmates, mostly Rick. Neil is an insomniac, believing sleep 'gives you cancer' and tries to commit suicide often. However, he does have two friends- a fellow hippie named Neil and a hippe called Warlock.

Mike (Christopher Ryan)- The self proclaimed 'cool guy'. He generally makes most of the decisions in the house and is never challenged. Thinks himself to be a ladies man, but has to admit his viginity on one episode.

SPG- Vyvyans glaswiegan hamster. Much like Vyvyan, is very violent and electricutes him after Vyvyan eats a television.

This thread is epic, although. Bottom > The Young Ones.

*For those who don't know. Yes, it's Rik & Vivian. Atleast, i think that's they're respective names in TYO*


I have The Bottom box set and the Young Ones! Yeah, Bottom is pretty damn good.

And it is Rick and Vyvyan. In 'Bambi', thats how their names are spelt on the board thing.

Love it most of the time, though mostly only Vyvyan and Rick. That twa t Alexei Sayle ruins it though, I don't know why they must crowbar his piss poor stand-up esque sections into every episode, he's just plain not funny.

Oh god, i want to agree, but they're both as good as each other.

Bottom is fantastic
And so is TYO

Neil is amazing. Heh, he makes me laugh how he's always depressed.

I prefer Rik and Ade in Bottom though.
TRANSFORMICE

Heh - in "The Bomb", Vyvyan is trying to detonate the bomb with a hammer (I think), when he gives up.

"What I need is the hedge trimmers, the drill, and some ordinary household bleach"

Haha great comedy, Neil is the best!

What's that episode with Vyvians sock? Always used to crack me up.

I love The Young Ones so much, it is so awesome

I like it when Neil plays his guitar on the toilet, always makes me smile.
