Any fans of the show here? It's funny how many Neil and Vyvyan-wannabes there are at my college, maybe that's why I love the show so much.

The frightening thing is, there were medical students like Vivian and now they are Doctors!

Did somewhat like the program :)

Vyvyan looking out of a train window, and getting his head knocked off. 'Nuff said. Priceless scene.

This show has the greatest ending ever. 'Phew, that was lucky...'

That was a good ending :D
I also like Vyvyan's entrance where he crashes through the wall.

I think Rowan Atkinson said in his comedy lecture that one funny thing is an unexpected appearance. Crashing through the wall, feet first, with a severed leg covered in brown paper is certainly unexpected. :)

I agree with Rowan Atkinson :)
I think unexpected comedy is the funniest type of comedy myself.

Oh god, I love this show and pretty much anything Rik Mayall or Adrian Edmonson do.

Some of my favorite scenes:

* The exploding front door scene.
* Every time Vyvyan beats up Rick, especially when the bed falls from the ceiling in the 'time' episode lol.
* When Vyvyan starts demolishing the house, "because the council are going to knock the house down"
* When Vyvyan looses his head sticking his head out the train window, and his body goes looking for it.
* Cola with the formula that makes anyone who drinks it to become a axe wielding homicidal maniac and their landlord (can't remember his name, Alex is the actor's name) drinks it.
* Oh and the scene with Special Patrol Group eating all the food in the pot, Vyvyan picks him up, drops him (and he falls through the floor) and then SPG says "Oh, I got a butt load of curry" and then farts and literally flies around the room like a deflating balloon. XD

Too much to remember. I just lol thinking about all the crazy things Vyvyan does.

Their take on Narnia was better than the real movie.

'Young Ones' is one of the first shows that literally made me laugh until it hurt. I think Mayill and Edmondson are genius together. Neil is classic too 'look Rick, I've got eight arms'

Did anyone ever find Mike kind of annoying?
I don't think think the show would be the same without him, but I see him as 'negative space' if you know what I mean.
