A true original of genre television and an icon of the late 1980s, Max Headroom, central character in promotional blurbs, the British Channel 4 film Twenty Minutes Into the Future, and his own short-lived but thought-provoking U.S. series, will finally appear on DVD. Prescient, funny, and overdue for a revival.

I still have my square Max Headroom badge.

Expect a review of the series sometime next autumn.
