Max Headroom

I’ve recently finished watching Max Headroom for the first time. No, I never saw it when it was in syndication, I was 1 year old.

I’ll admit, this show is not well-acted and the plots are always really absurd, but somehow I still like it. I guess it’s some of the cyberpunk sci-fi elements that are shown everywhere.

I also think it’s cool that they have predicted a few things that we now use today (The setting was 2005). Such as In-vitro fertilization, using credit primarily instead of cash, censorship and information piracy, and TV addiction. Pretty interesting stuff.

Sadly, the show only has 14 episodes. I just wish that there were more shows out there like it.
