This DVD set contains all 14 episodes of the original cyberpunk drama series (but not the original TV movie "Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future"). The show has dated in many ways, but the themes are still very relevant. The titular character is still fun to watch, too, Jeffrey Tambor is always great.
There are a ton of extras on this set, all worth watching. Of particular interest is "Live on Network 23," which digs deep into the character's British roots and the split among the creative personnel over his voyages to America. There's also an actors' roundtable, featuring everyone apart from Brewer, and a number of featurettes dealing with everything from the look of the series to the technology in the show's world.
Sadly there isn't any of the original British variety-show segments or American TV commercials starring the character, but this is still lots of fun.
