The Young Ones (video game)
The Young Ones is a video game based on the British comedy television series, The Young Ones. The game takes place in the students' home; the player can choose to play as either Vyvyan, Neil, or Mike to explore the house and enter different rooms. The other characters become computer-controlled players. All characters can pick up and drop objects, as well as break and fix things; the characters talk, giving the player clues as to what the character is intended to do. The aim of the game is to try and move out of the house with all the character's belongings in the shortest time possible; this is not so easy, because these possessions are not in their preferred condition, or are hidden around the house, players need various tools to get to them. The other characters will move around the house, behaving in-character moving around or further damaging the possessions - making the task harder; the game was published by Orpheus Software, based in Hatley St George in Bedfordshire, UK. The concept of the game was created by Orpheus director Paul Kaufman.
The majority of the game was programmed with input from Geoff Phillips. The characters of The Young Ones were licensed from the owners of the BBC television series, Ben Elton, Rik Mayall, Lise Mayer. Due to difficulty in licensing the original series music from the BBC, an alternative music sound track was commissioned to sound similar to the original theme. Over 10,000 copies of the game were sold through Boots stores and independent computer stores. In a review of the game, British computer magazine Your Sinclair said that fans of the series would enjoy the game but others could tire of it quickly, it was given a 7/10 rating.

The Young One
La joven — called The Young One or White Trash in the United States, released as Island of Shame in the United Kingdom — is a 1960 film by the Spanish director Luis Buñuel. Produced in Mexico and shot in English with American actors, La Joven is Buñuel's second and last American film; the film deals with issues of racism and rape against a complex portrayal of two men, each of whom shows both good and evil. The film was entered into the 1960 Cannes Film Festival, has received positive reviews since release; the Young One is available in both Region 1 and Region 2 DVD editions after being out of distribution for many years. Based on a short story by American author Peter Matthiessen, the film tells the story of Traver, a black jazz musician on the run after a white woman has accused him of rape; such a charge in the South could lead to his being lynched. After stealing a boat to escape, Traver makes his way to an island inhabited by the beekeeper Miller, Evalyn, the granddaughter of his deceased partner.
What follows is a struggle between Traver and Miller over guns and the affections of the young Evalyn, who becomes fascinated by the clarinet-playing Traver. She is disgusted by Miller's advances toward her each night. While being pursued late at night, Traver steals a boat and ends up on an island off the Carolina coast inhabited by Miller, who has owned a bee farm with his deceased partner Pee Wee. Pee Wee, a drunk whose liver quit, has left behind a teenage granddaughter named Evalyn, whose age is unknown. Miller is cruel to Evvie until one day he pulls back her wild-child hair and notices that she is quite beautiful. Miller goes to shore to buy her gifts. Thinking herself alone, Evvie goes about her routine at the apiary, but Traver surprises her and begs her for some honey, he gives her a dime in return. Traver winds up getting a meal back at the cabin, but when he wants to leave with a shotgun and some gas for his boat, Evvie protests; the shotgun discharges during their struggle. Traver leaves.
He reaches his boat but accidentally shoots a hole in it, forcing him to return to the cabin for repair supplies. Despite this and Evvie develop trust in one another. Traver spends another night on the island fixing his boat. Evvie wakes up in the middle of the night when a raccoon kills a chicken; when she opens the window, she hears Traver playing on his clarinet. Miller becomes angry when he finds out he's been robbed, he goes out to find the perpetrator. In the meantime Evvie hides the money by pinning it into her skirt. Traver is at his boat ready to leave, but runs away when he sees Miller approaching. Miller comes upon the boat, shoots enough holes in the hull to sink it. A chase ensues. Traver finds another boat in a river. Traver splashes into the water, but emerges unscathed. Miller presents Evvie with a dress and some high heel shoes, he warns her away from men. Miller has Evvie sit on his lap, seems bemused by her innocence. "Don't let anyone hold you like this," he warns her. But as he tries to kiss her, she avoids his lips.
After Miller finds the 20-dollar bill, he confronts Evvie with it. When Evvie tries to explain it, Miller insinuates that she got the money in return for sexual favors and sends her to bed. Traver holds Miller up, he takes Miller's rifle and returns to his boat. The next day Miller gives Evvie her money back "for telling the truth." He goes out looking for Traver, whom he finds busy fixing the boat. They have a heated exchange of insults and racial epithets, but reconcile after learning that they both served in the infantry in WWII, their shared status as veterans appears to mollify Miller's suspicions and he stops using racial slurs against Traver. Miller and Evvie leave Traver in peace to finish work on his boat, but he returns to the two cabins to keep an eye on the pair while his boat soaks. Miller offers Traver work on the island in exchange for room and board, uses Traver's presence as a pretext for Evvie to move into his own quarters, he offers Traver the small cabin she and her grandfather used, makes her move her bed into his.
For her part, Evvie can't understand. Traver explains. It's hard for me to kill him." By his reckoning, Miller has more power in that dynamic, so Traver holding on to the gun "makes us equal." After some coaxing from Evvie, Traver plays his clarinet. That night we see Miller kiss Evvie roughly; the implication is. The following day, the local preacher, Rev. Fleetwood, another white man named Jackson come to the island to baptize Evvie; the Reverend soon has suspicions about Miller's treatment of Evvie, while Miller finds out about a rape charge against a black clarinet player, whom he concludes is Traver. The two themes of rape and racism intertwine. Zachary Scott as Miller Bernie Hamilton as Traver Key Meersman as Evalyn Crahan Denton as Jackson Claudio Brook as Rev. Fleetwood Rotten Tomatoes reports 100% approval for The Young One, with an average rating of 8.3/10. The Young One on IMDb La joven at the cinema of Mexico site of the ITESM

Geoff Berkshire of Variety wrote, "Jake Paltrow's visually rich spare sci-fi Western bogs down in its primal tale of murder and revenge." David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "There's little refreshment on offer in this parched lo-fi sci-fi drama, despite the distinctive element of its retro rural setting." Jeannette Catsoulis of The New York Times called it a "spare but potent melodrama" that focuses on male violence. Robert Abele of the Los Angeles Times wrote that it "gets lost amid a mishmash of film styles". Official website Young Ones on IMDb
