The Young Ones get the digital edge

The show that became a hit on the BBC and barely made a blip on the U.S. radar may find a larger stateside audience when Young Ones: Every Stoopid Episode comes to DVD in September from Warner Home Entertainment.

Punk Vyvyan, Neil-the-hippy, slick Mike and clever-dick Rick are roommates from hell in this award-winning comedy series. Features the world’s stickiest booger, a nuclear bomb next to the refrigerator, and houseguests like the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse and a singing tomato. Each anarchic episode includes live performances from bands like Madness, Motorhead, The Damned and Dexy’s Midnight Runners. Not to mention guest appearances from stars like Emma Thompson, Robbie Coltrane, Jennifer Saunders, and many more.

The set will consist of three discs containing all fifteen episodes in their original fullscreen aspect ratio and newly mixed Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. Extras include a 15 minute featurette “Creating the Young Ones”, a six minute featurette “The Young Ones and the 80s” with live performance by Rik Mayall, pilot episodes of “Filthy Rich & Catflap” and “Bottom” and talent files.

Coming on September 17th, the set will be priced at $59.98.
