Manic and mad, rude and pretty revolting actually, the Scumbag College students - Rik, Vyv, Neil and Mike - are joined by the ever-threatening Alexei Sayle for the entire first series of The Young Ones.
DEMOLITION - Facist oiks at the Town Hall want to demolish the house. Why bother with Vyv around to do the business for them?
OIL - As Rick, Vyv, Neil and Mike move into their new house, the talking statue at the front door begins an odyssey of zaniness that is to culminate in a worker's revolution and a fully-fledged benefit concert in the front room.
BORING - A terrorist seige in their own house; a visitation from hell; a fairytale world that flourishes while they are asleep - what more entertainment could four students possibly want? Yet they are so B-O-R-E-D that Neil is driven to dig himself a grave and Vyv chops his finger off.
BOMB - A potentially explosive situation erupts when a bomb falls on the house...But worse! The TV licence man calls.
INTERESTING - It's party time! Where else could you mingle with the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, a giant sandwich and a singing tomato? Pretty amazing stuff, eh? Just ignore Neil's boring hippy friend chilling out in the fridge...
FLOOD - While London floods Rick tries to elevate proceedings with a game of hide-and-seek. Meanwhile his sociology file is set on fire by Vyv, Mike's room is occupied by a pride of lions, and landlord, Alexi Sayle turns into an axe-wielding homicidal maniac
