The Young Ones

Rik and VyvyanThe Young Ones is a British sitcom which ran for two series of 6 episodes each in 1982 and 1984.

The show revolves around four students sharing a house at the fictional "Scumbag College": violent punk rocker Vyvyan (Adrian Edmondson); pompous anarchist Rick (Rik Mayall); long-suffering hippy Neil (Nigel Planer); and amateur con artist Mike (Christopher Ryan). Alexei Sayle also starred as members of the Balowski family, as the students' Russian landlord, Jerzei, and as various other characters in the second series.

The show combined a traditional sitcom style, slapstick violence, non sequitur plot-turns, and surrealism.
