The Max headroom show should be on DVD
10 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

this is max headroom's first show that was made by UK TV station channel 4 back in 1985 the show was on late at night for half an hour every week. max had a guest star on most his show's in the first series of his shows and told a lot of jokes and played music video' guest star's on the show was sting, nick Rhodes Simone Lebon, Roger daltry,boy George, max played some strange video's to like rat on a budget and it had people eating rat burgers, another one was someone singing about Germans,a reggae version to the coronation street theme, other great one were by Paul Hardcastle,Squeeze,this show had six shows.

the second show came out from the UK TV channel 4 in 1986 called again the max headroom show this time though it the show had max in a bigger studio with a audience max headroom talked to them as well. this show was more of a talk show then a music show max interviewed Michael Caine,Howie Mandel,jack lemmon,oliver reed,Tracey Ullman,Jackie Collin's,Rutger hauger,Vidal Sassoon this show had eight shows max did play music videos on this show but not as many as his first show i think the Michael Caine interview is very funny out of all the interviews max did

Christmas 1986 max did an half hour special and had a lot of guests and he did a lot of singing bob geldof,Tina turner,robin Williams guest starred on this show

the third show of max headroom was made by the us channel cinemax this show was called the original max talking headroom show and was not as funny as his UK shows this show had no music and max had two guest on each of his half hour shows william shatner, grace jones, guest starred and this show had six shows

i hope everything max did comes out on DVD which includes these four show's max headroom the UK movie and the UK extended movie, the us TV adventure series, the David lettermen interview, terry wogan interview,the coke ads, the UK radio rental ads,the sweep stakes ad. the music video by the art of noise paraniomia, the red nose night 1989 which max was in

i have all these but i would love to see these on DVD and have them in box set in crystal clear picture and sound with extra's
