    One of the best shows ever, and I'd pay you (or anyone) to tape it for me. DVD would be better, but last time I held my breath... Thank goodness for reincarnation.

    Seriously, a very smart and edgy show. Too much so for primetime...

    Indeed, Dan. It's great to see it again - I had copies of it for years, but they're on the other side of the Atlantic (and PAL at that).

    This show definitely deserves to be on DVD - years ahead of its time.

    Years ahead of its time? I thought it was only 20 minutes into the future!

    I was actually quite serious, I really would pay someone to tape these shows. Nothing extravagant, but perhaps $50 + tapes + postage.

    And if not for the money, for the pure humanitarian aspects... I don't have cable and Max Headroom is a distant and great memory!

    Are they airing them unedited? I thought the last run on Sci-Fi was trimmed slightly for commercials.

    I love this show, I miss it terribly, and I can't watch it because Comcast dropped Tech Tv in favor of the YES Network.

    ...sigh.

    Dan, I'd dub my old copies from the ABC airings for you, but after watching "Blipverts" last night in such a rotten condition (picture kept breaking up, not surprising since the tape is fifteen years old), I'm in the market for fresh copies myself if they're unedited.
