Season 2, episode 3 of The Young Ones, featuring Terry Jones as the drunk vicar and musical guest The Damned. (Original air date May 29, 1984.) For all of MTV’s evils, it did introduce the US to this crazy, offbeat British sitcom. I loved it immediately, and watching it now, I feel like it’s aged pretty well. Alexei Sayle was absolutely the show’s secret weapon.
If I had to pick, “Nasty” is my favorite episode. A horror movie theme and a punk band?

Gracias. I was never as cool as the kids who got cable television (and MTV). A huge gap in my development.
The Young Ones was pretty consistent, but “Bambi” is another classic. This is the University Challenge episode with musical guest Motorhead.
