Oh 80's cyberpunk nostalgia, how I love thee.
I for one would hate to see a Max Headroom "comeback." THe original movie was kind of cool and the TV series' first season was actually fairly radical for the time and not bad either, but let's face it: once the character and the idea got co-opted into a fucking marketing tool, it completely killed anything likable there.
I mean, the entire premise of the original Max Headroom movie is about how awful TV corporations and advertising are.
Supposedly, Frewer had a script years back for another Max movie. Seeing as the sci-fi show (not to be confused with the talk show) predicted a lot of what TV was to become (24 hours a day, ratings monitored constantly, reality TV), I think a "Max look back in anger" would be interesting, as long as all the original people were involved. Is Blank Reg still alive?

I like how he's fat and balding now.
I love this like I love pie.
Max is the man.
