RhoDeo 1634 Young 1's 4th

Hello,  the Olympics are history, as a lover of all kinds of sports there was plenty to see and enjoy but you really needed to switch channels a lot as the amount of blah blah from presenters reached extreme irritation, i understand that these talking heads are hired to glorify the home nation but even at the BBC it got quite ridiculous. That said the Brits had their best games ever even surpassing their previous home games, the US dominated swimming as usual and did well at athletics but everywhere else not a big contender. But then money driven monoculture has been all the rage in the US.  As the closing ceremony keeps Brazilian politicians at bay, hated as some are, it's the time for the IOC bobo's to blow their own trumpet some more, thousands of athletes providing the decoration, many have already returned, some were involutary sent home if they failed in scoring a medal, a fascist policy by the dutch no less, that sent home a medal contender for not showing up in time for training even if the event was a week away. Those dutch bobo's are something else alright sieg heil baby !    Anyway not much will change until it's hello Tokyo and the whole show starts again...   and who knows Rho-Xs might have it's 4th Olympics on show.          

Today the 4th episode of an 'historical' 12-episode dramatization of student life in early eighties UK, hooliganism had not made the headlights yet, but dare i say it quickly followed after this series was broadcast. Inspiring clueless chaos ..N'Joy

The Young Ones is a British "variety" show, broadcast in the United Kingdom from 1982 to 1984 in two six-part series. Shown on BBC2, it featured anarchic, offbeat humour which helped bring alternative comedy to television in the 1980s and made household names of its writers and performers. In 1985, it was shown on MTV, one of the first non-music television shows on the fledgling channel. In a 2004 poll, it ranked at number 31 in the BBC's list of Britain's Best Sitcoms.

The main characters were four undergraduate students who were sharing a house: aggressive punk Vyvyan (Adrian Edmondson), conceited wannabe anarchist Rick (Rik Mayall), oppressed paranoid hippie Neil (Nigel Planer), and the suave, charming Mike (Christopher Ryan). It also featured Alexei Sayle, who played various members of the Balowski family—most often Jerzei Balowski, the quartet's landlord—and occasional independent characters, such as the train driver in "Bambi" and the Mussolini-lookalike Police Chief in "Cash".
Stories were set in a squalid house where the students lived during their time at Scumbag College.

The show combined traditional sitcom style with violent slapstick, non-sequitur plot turns, and surrealism. Every episode except one featured a live performance by a band, including Madness, Motörhead, and The Damned. This was a device used to qualify the series for a larger budget, as "variety" shows attracted higher fees than "comedy"
