Please, Please, Please Bring This Show Back!!!
23 January 2002 | by (Carlisle, England) – See all my reviews

When the public were introduced to Max Headroom, they didn't know who he was, or (in some people's cases), what he was. To this day you can still find someone, (preferably a friend of a friend of a friend), who believes that he was a computer generated image. But, it turned out, it was actor Matt Frewer, (under an excessive amount of make-up), broadcast to whoever he was taking to from elsewhere.

It would be a cool idea to bring this show back, with todays technology, you could make Max to be an actual CGI creation.

If any of the shows creators are out there, please take note, and bring back this old gem.
