The Young Ones
14 August 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

'Flood' is definitely one of the best episodes of 'The Young Ones'. It contains everything a Britcom should have; a cat-comedian, a flooded London, a plot to eat a hippie and a homicidal axe-wielding maniac. This episode, and indeed the entire two series of 'The Young Ones', is a cult classic, and delightfully quotable. Something the Americans can't quite get a hold of is the fact that violence is only funny when there's no blood. This is because it is the exact opposite of reality. In 'Flood', Rik can be seen ramming a pin into Vyvyan's head, before an enraged Vyvyan picks up the nearest axe and advances on a blubbering Rik with it. This is only before Neil enters, panicky and stating that Rik's bedroom is on fire! They then discover that their house is at the bottom of the sea; London's flooded! It is now that the students' already insane landlord hacks a hole in the door with an axe, having become a homicidal axe-wielding maniac! Oh well, in the words of Neil: "Out of the frying pan, into another frying pan..."
