Breaking News from Network 23

I saw this on io9 recently and wanted to pass on you, the fine readers of BNFOS.

One of the coolest, most interesting and prescient science fiction shows ever created for television is FINALLY coming to DVD.

That's right, I'm talking about Max Headroom. This beloved series premiered in 1987, and in August Shout! Factory will release all 14 episodes of its extremely brief two season run on ABC. (Yes, technically the character of Max Headroom appeared prior to this series, but its unknown how much, if any, of the British tv movie and other appearances may end up on this set. What's for certain is you get the American sci fi show.)

Here's just a taste of Max Headroom's trademarked brand of madness on Late Night with David Letterman.

  1. I saw that--excellent news!

    Much less prescient, but still loads of fun, "Tales of the Gold Monkey" is supposed to be released by Shout! Factory this June.

    It'll be interesting to see if things still hold up "twenty minutes into the future"
