Apparently, through the bizaare details of international copyright and
licensing, there was a Canadian/North American edition of Max Headroom
on DVD based on the English version of the show. There has not been
an American edition.
Luckily, when I googled for Max Headroom DVD, I found an eBay auction
of five copies, so I managed to get one with an hour to spare.
I'm sure other copies will pop up on the 'Bay in the future for nerds
looking for a mid-'80s nostalgia fix. Of course, we're going to end
up watching this with our oldest boy, and I'm not sure I can take
hours of derisive laughter at the primitive technology -- War Games
was definitely unintentionally funny after 20 years of Moore's Law.
Hate to think of what he'd say if we found a copy of TRON...
