lizvogel: lizvogel's fandoms.  The short list. (Fandom Epilepsy)
There are some things that even a purist like me grabs on sight, without all that tedious fretting about possible changes or other DVD-worries. Max Headroom was one such, way back in... April? when it was announced.

And now it's here. Squee!

Packaging first: Excellent. The discs are single-sided. They come in slim-packs, two to a case but not double-stacked, with three cases total in the box. Maximum convenience with minimum shelf-space. The much-advertised-on-Amazon "lenticular" cover is actually just a slip-cover with a holographic Max -- cheesy, but an appropriate kind of cheesy.

The lead-in graphics to the menu are a little disturbing to the eye, but again, in an entirely appropriate-to-the-show way, disorienting and jumpy with judiciously-applied static. The menu itself is clear and easy to navigate.

The "complete series" doesn't include the original UK TV-movie, unfortunately. Not a huge loss, as it's the same story as "Blipverts", but would have been nice for us completists. (Of course, I've got it on VHS around here somewhere, so I can talk.)

For more details about extras, etc., see the quite good review on tvshowsondvd.

And now, on to the content itself: Wow. You must be at least this tall to read these spoilers. )
