Mike was originally to be played by vastly superior comedian Peter Richardson. When you watch Richardson doing "The Cool Guy" act on stage, an act he was supposed to do for Young Ones, it really pisses you off. I never understood why they included the Mike character.
dementomstie I love the Young Ones. And I agree on the editing comment it makes this storyline all run together which wasn't really the point of the show usually.
StanleyPain I love the story of how the couch-drop thing was basically not recommended by the crew on the set, but they rigged it up anyway and the two guys just assumed they'd get seriously injured doing it, but figured it was worth the laugh.
