"Sick" episode!
15 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Snot flies through the air in gloopy streams and blows up glass vases. Petrol bombs explode and clear sinuses. 6-inch nails are used for acupuncture. Bin bags are tied over heads and knives about to be rammed up bottoms before crazy homicidal maniacs come in and hold everyone hostage. This is what happens when the Young Ones are ill. And it is truly hilarious to behold. Everything happens in abundance in this episode - the green liquid flying from Neil's mouth, the size of the petrol bomb exploding, and a riot happening outside started by the Young Ones. Though by the end of the episode so much has happened that you'll have forgotten the Young Ones were ever sick at all, this is so funny that you won't care, and besides, when does the Young Ones stick to set agendas? Brilliant and truly sick! 10/10
