Goofs

When Vyvyan does his finger trick, you can clearly see tubes going into his gloves to provide the blood. Some say this is a mistake, but others say it's part of the practical joke kits he uses because blood was meant to spurt out of his hand when he cut the fake finger off. It's a goof only if you want it to be. See more »

The opposite of boring!
19 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was probably my favourite episode of the Young Ones. Packed full of riotous laughs and alternative-ness, this is everything the Young Ones should be. The return of the Balowskis was absolutely hilarious - Billy's performance had me in stitches, especially when he was talking directly to us saying, "I've not always been mad, y'know..." Also featured in this episode - a terrorist siege in the Young Ones' house, on TV as a newsflash (interrupting Vyvyan's favourite programme "Bastard Squad), reported to us by BBC reporter Dan Prick (come on, just the name made me roar!), the Young Ones go down to the pub in which Madness are playing where Vyv meets someone from way back, and the Young Ones' house literally becomes "hell". Come on, when a TV episode's called "Boring", you know it's going to be anything but... 10/10
