    Probably my favorite sci-fi show from my childhood. I've been waiting for this one to hit DVD for a while. I think this show holds up very well as time has passed. The saturation of television into our lives and the dissemination of information is such a big topic in today's media. This show was discussing these things nearly 20 years ago. Where does news stop and entertainment begin and vice versa? This was another show a bit ahead of its time like Arrested Development, where it was not conventional TV so it had a short life on TV. I think Sci-Fi was running it in reruns for a while, but I'd love to see a nice DVD release with behind the scenes footage and the history of how the character Max Headroom was created.

    I didn't catch every episode, but I loved this show. I thought it funny that in the show the reason he called himself Max Headroom was because that was the last thing he saw before he bashed into the MAX HEADROOM warning sign.

    Another fine show this was. This was the first show that made me recognize Matt Frewer. For years afterward every time I saw him it was, "Hey, it's Max Headroom." LOL

    Yeah, I remember he used to be on Psi Factor which was a really lame X-Files rip off, but he was the best thing that show had going. All I could think was "you used to be Max Headroom and this is the best thing you can find to do now?!"
