Probably the best and most adventurous series on american television. Which is why it was cancelled so quickly. Innovation is not what the mainstream media wants for its audience. The last thing you want your american audience to do is think.

He had a very, very brief sitcom called Doctor Doctor. Side-achingly funny shiat.

So of course it was immediately canceled.

A fantastic satire the likes of which,as Weaver 95 has astutely pointed out,we may never see again. Matt Frewer is still a woefully underrated actor and deserves more recognition.

dstrick44: I thought that show was stupid at the time. And now that I know it was just an analogue/makeup job pretending to be digital...Well, let's say my opinion of the show has not improved.

Weaver95: Lionel Mandrake: Weaver95: A show like Max Headroom could never be made ever again. the networks would simply smother it in its crib.

We might be able to sneak it through if we call it "Real Housewives of Network 23"

corporations do NOT like to be mocked.


So if corporations are people, are they public or private figures?

He was the best part of The Stand, and that's coming from a huge Gary Sinise fan.
