A group of anarchists known as Blanks threaten to destroy the city's central computer systems unless several of their wrongfully imprisoned members are released from jail. Edison Carter (bang-up work from Matt Frewer) and friends try to stop them by using Max as bait. Director Tommy Lee Wallace, working from a sharp and compelling script by Steve Roberts, relates the arresting story at a constant swift pace and builds plenty of gripping tension. Moreover, this episode has a pertinent message about the misuse of computers to brainwash the masses and how a technology dependent society can be totally brought to its knees if said technology was shut down. William Morgan Sheppard as jolly punk rebel Blank Reg and Concetta Tomei as Reg's sharp-tongued partner Blank Dominique are both in top form. Howard Sherman delivers a memorably sleazy performance as oily politician Peller. Lisa Niemi makes a welcome return appearance as intrepid field reporter Janie Crane. Peter Crook gives a spot-on portrayal of wily ace hacker Bruno. Paul Goldsmith's lively and stylish cinematography adds to the show's crackling vitality. Cory Lerios' brooding score also does the trick. As an added plus, we get some touching back information on teen computer whiz Bryce Lynch (affable Chris Young), who was taken away from his family and friends when he was sent to an elite computer school at age ten. And, as usual, Max's sarcastic comments are a complete hoot and a half.
