Get on with it Rik ya big poof!,
This review is from: The Young Ones: Series 1 & 2 [DVD] (DVD)
I never review products, but this is possibly the most anticipated DVD set of my life and i just felt i had to comment..
Quite simply this is not the dream box set that us Young ones fans may have dreamt of, instead its filled with a disc of slightly interesting (no pun) documentaries about the scene at the time, but nothing like the imagined (and im sure i even read it happened!) reuniting of the young ones to reminiss give some detail to cult things etc.. Rik and Ade are absent and its such a shame.. But like everything Rik seems to be involved with there is a sense of mystery to its contents and release (delayed for years!) you dont know why this wasnt better, but your always going to be longing for more..just like Rik material and him gracing our screens and stages.
for the die hard fans like me who know every line you will find a few seconds of material not contained on the older DVD releases (hence my title) , and quite simply because this IS the greatest TV show ever, i give it 5 stars.. its just a shame Rik and Ade couldnt make an appearance....the selfish b*$^**&s!!! :)

But did you notice that the shot of the two teddy bears shagging in the episode "Nasty" (just before Rik enters his bedroom and is attacked by a circular saw in his bed) has been cut? Why is this?
One of my favourite bits so I was really gutted!

In the Swedish version they kept the shagging teddybears but removed the last seconds of the bath scene when Neil sings "Hello darkness my old friend". Weird. Couldn“t really be a copyright problem, could it?
