Not the best episode of the Young Ones.

Author: general-melchett from United Kingdom
5 December 2006

My second watch of this episode actually made me realise it was rather weak - "Boring" is much better. The Young Ones is meant to be riotous and rowdy - this one actually starts to drone on a bit - the talking peas in a later scene in the episode should really have stuck with the first line. But the benefit concert in the front room was pretty funny and enjoyable - how many people these days would sing about Doctor Martin's boots? There are some funny gags and it never tries to be realistic - what with striking oil in the basement - but really, this episode of The Young Ones could have been so much funnier. Inanimate objects talking has been done far better in later episodes. On the whole - it is worthy to be called The Young Ones, but not quite a riotous laugh of a viewing. 6/10
