Oh bloody hell, Rik Mayall died?! He died, what an utter, utter bastard piece of news that is. I loved him, and he and his comedy pals helped shape our generation. OK, so it has been a while since I last whacked anyone round the head with a frying pan, but The Young Ones definitely formed at least part of my personality!
A classic house based sitcom with punk rock sensibilities and a left wing attitude, it is me in sitcom form. (She say writing while sat on a sofa, surrounded by punk memorabilia and the constant urge to shout about standing up for ‘the people’, right kids!) It was genius stuff, and most of my generation can while away many a happy drunken hour quoting it in the pub.
