What's the holdup? the most obscure is being released.
Max Headroom was, for me, the best exciting TV series when it was first and the only time shown in New Zealand, back in 1988. It still holds up well when I view my recorded tapes off the TV every other year. The stories never let up and it would have been interesting to see what else the writers could come up with. As with other earlier shows, I like to see actors go on and handle other projects. The characters Theora and Edison seem to play some of their own personal being, as with a lot of the other players on the show. But I find now, that is what it takes to make an exiting show. Look at the X-Files. It might have taken what it took to bring back shows like 'Star Trek', it would take the same feeling and genre to show the next generation what my generation felt.
Yours, X-Files Fan.
