review (ish): Max Headroom

So, I slipped back into the eighties for a couple of hours this evening, thanks to the show Max Headroom. It was a rather bizarre experience, especially the commercial breaks - a friend's father taped the episodes when they originally aired, so I got to watch ads from 1988.

Did people really dress that way? And do that to their hair?

I'm definitely going to watch the four episodes left on the tape, if only so I can marvel some more over how much fashion's shifted. And then maybe move on to Tron and Minority Report, so I can revel in dystopia.
