    :D Oh yeah, I love The Young Ones!!
    Its really like it that in all there episodes theres a band that plays a song in the middle of the program, not always a good band. But still, the Young Ones rock.
    I don't really have a favorite, all the characters quite hilarious.:)

    Great show! The episodes are available on video (Vyvyan: YES WE HAVE A VIDEO!!!) so be sure to rent them.


    Some classic lines from the show:

    Neil (the depressed hippie): "Oh wow. What a bummer. Someone's driven a metal spike though me head."

    Rick (the annoying anarchist): "Oh lovely! Vyvyan's just crashed through the kitchen wall! That's really considerate of you Vyvyan!"

    Vyvyan (the manic violent punker): "I didn't know me mum was a waitress! Last time I saw her she was a shoplifter!"

    Mike: (the "straight" man of the group who sleeps with a blow-up doll): I got tired of setting the table so I nailed all the dishes to it. Unfortunately I've driven the nails through the dishes and into my legs! AAARGH!"

    I've seen all the seasons on DVD at Tower and on ebay, but I just don't feel like shelling out 60 bucks for it... even though it's probably worth it. I have a hard time spending more than $10 at a time. :(

    My dad has all of these on VHS. This maybe one of the most underated TV shows of all time.
    Now it's time for me to eat some Lentel Soup!

    Best. Show. Ever.
    I grew up watching this show (i had a big brother) and it's amazing how much i picked up without even understanding!
    My fave is Rik (Wik) the People's Poet! Here's a selection of his masterpeices:

    From "Flood"
    What do you think you're doing, pig?
    Do you really give a fig, pig?
    And what's your favourite sort of gig, pig?
    Barry Manilow
    Or the black and white minstrel show?


    From "Demolition"
    Oh, Cliff
    Sometimes it must be difficult not to feel as if
    You really are a Cliff
    When fascists keep trying to push you over it
    Are they the lemmings?
    Or are you Cliff?
    Or are you, Cliff?
