Can't Wait for Season 2
2 March 2016 | by kitcolfortSee all my reviews

I found Young Drunk Punk on YouTube and was instantly interested. I've always loved the 80s and punk, so seeing a show that combined the two of them was amazing. At the time, I had no idea that Atticus Mitchell was starring, but was more than thrilled to see him once more. (I'd been a fan of him during his days on My Babysitter's a Vampire).

I'm not usually a fan of sitcoms, but YDP won my heart by the second episode. Ian and Shinky are characters you can't help but route for. Unlike most sitcoms, by accident they become attached to one story line and all the others fail.

Young Drunk Punk shines with interesting story lines for all the characters. Though there are a few episodes I don't re watch, YDP is one of my favorite TV-shows and my hope is that soon, we get both a season 2 and American syndication.
