Any of you readers remember Max Headroom from the 80's?
No? Okay, clearly, we're dealing with a younger demographic than we thought. For those of you not in the know, Max Headroom was this weird quasi-computer animated* music video-cum-quiz show-cum talk show that somehow captured the attention of the whole world, thanks to dry humor, some strange graphics and his signature staccato speech patterns. He appeared in commercials for New Coke. Still not sure what we mean? Check out Max Headroom: The Complete Series on DVD ($33), the DVD set 80's fanatics the world over have been waiting for.
*Actually, actor Matt Frewer in latex & foam prosthetic makeup and a fiberglass costume. Who knew?
