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.
Facist oiks at the Town Hall want to demolish the house. Why bother with Vyv around to do the business for them?
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.
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.
A potentially explosive situation erupts when a bomb falls on the house...But worse! The TV licence man calls.
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...
While London floods, Rick tries to elevate proceedings with a game of hide-and-seek. Meanwhile Vyv sets his sociology file on fire, Mike`s room is occupied by a pride of lions, and landlord, Alexi Sayle turns into an axe-wielding homicidal maniac.
