Why has the "Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future" series never been released on DVD? Just about everything has been released on DVD, including stuff that should have never been made in the first place, yet this (dare I say) groundbreaking series has not appeared. I managed to get a rather dodgy set of VCDs, recorded off American TV, on eBay. Twenty years on and it still stands up. No 80's fashion crimes and it was amazingly prescient. Every time I watch it I'm amazed at how spot on some of their future visions were (check out http://www.spiritone.com/~brucem/trivmax.htm for some). And it has humour too.
I've introduced my kids (10 & 13) to it and they love it, so it's not just a nostalgia thing it is a good show worth putting onto DVD. Anyone else have fond memories of it and want to see it on DVD?
I can only assume there must be some sort of rights issue involved. Anyone have any contacts (SciFi chanel, Chrysalis) that might be able to find out?
