RhoDeo 1638 Young 1's 8th

Hello, not much interest interest in the Paralympics from the mainstream media, go figure. Looking at the final medal table the US shows that handicapped people are much better of in China or in the UK or even Ukraine, shameful ! US a Christian country ? far far from it. That said the Nordic countries were surprisingly absent as well and Germany got less medals then the Dutch but they did broadcast several hours each day of the tournament on mainstream TV, plenty of back ground on the athletes and how they dealt with their handicap and as such inspiring television. The amazing human spirit in full glory.... such a shame that so many didn't even got a chance to witness it...

Today the 8th 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"
