The Young Ones : Complete BBC Series 1 & 2 - 3 Disc DVD Set £12 @ Amazon & Tesco

A mad, helter-skelter, rude, awesomely violent, unpredictable, swaggering, staggering, joyously infantile, exhilarating steamroller of a sitcom, The Young Ones provided the breakthrough for the new generation of aggressive and forthright 'alternative' comedians.

The third disc contains a couple documentaries.

Also Demolition' and 'Summer Holiday' contain a full audio commentary by Paul Jackson.

They are presented FULLY UNCUT and that includes the episode Boring which has several what we would now call racist terms spoken by a policeman (abit to a white person) which almost never gets shown on TV.

All the music interludes are included too which again were missing from previous releases.

This version is the most complete. Most bits have been put back in that were removed from previous versions. Hot deal, great price.

If you buy them separately there are only 2 discs the boxed set is 3 discs - the extra disc is explained below.

Review: Like most other Young Ones fans who grew up in the early 80's, this has been one of my most eagerly awaited DVD's ever.

Presented over 3 discs, we have series 1 and 2 on the first two disc's whilst the third disc contains a couple documentaries which are interesting but could have been so much better had all the cast and Ben Elton taken part.Still its not a great problem as its the programs that we are interested in more than the extras.Also Demolition' and 'Summer Holiday' contain a full audio commentary by Paul Jackson.

All in all this is a superb box set which should not be missed.

This and Not the Nine O'Clock news were fantastic when I was a teenager, not quite the same when I watch them now though.

Like Mr Benn I always imagined they had made more than they did. Love watching the musical interludes but used to hate Alexi Sayle in it.
