He came out in 1984 and I remember him mainly for what he portended - a world where Artificial Intelligence was ubiquitous. It amazes me that back then, we had nothing like the internet. We had personal computers and video games, however. Yet as of 2017, we still have nothing like an Artificial Intelligence which can function as a talk show host.

Wikipedia article:
Max Headroom






I remember the Coke ads and liked them. On the show I think I liked the people but found Max mostly annoying. I liked how they made fun of the TV medium. Ads so obnoxious they make your head explode? In one episode they were investing a crime a found someone had a TV with a off switch. "An off switch? That's illegal!" my Dad was like "the network's not going to keep this show around very long!"
