*** The teleplay book of the original movie gives Bryce's age as 16 in the line "The thing that even now gave them [the members of the board] a feeling of discomfort was that the face staring back at them was that of a boy of sixteen."

* LowClearance: According to the movie, this is where Max Headroom's name came from--the last words seen by Edison Carter before getting clocked by the sign.

* CassetteFuturism: The TV movie and subsequent series. Even though it's the Trope Namer for TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, there's no flat-screen digital HDTV, no internet, computer graphics have a distinctly pre-Windows appearance and TV shows are still recorded on tape.

''Series/MaxHeadroom'' strayed back and forth between BlackComedy and (mostly) serious CyberPunk for two half-seasons before being cancelled and largely forgotten. Many believe the network intentionally killed it, scheduling it opposite two hugely popular shows, ''{{Dallas}}'' and ''MiamiVice'' (where, ironically, Matt Frewer played a villain in a two-parter shortly after his show was cancelled).

'''''*BZZZZZZZZZT*''''' Er, [[DoNotAdjustYourSet we apologize about]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Headroom_broadcast_signal_intrusion_incident that]]. Moving on. Max Headroom was a huge hit, especially in the UK. But it was in the US that the pilot was picked up. Sort of. It was remade by Lorimar in 1987 as the first episode of the ''Series/MaxHeadroom'' TV series, keeping only Frewer, Pays, and Morgan Sheppard (Blank Reg) from the original cast, and substantially rewriting the second half of the movie (but using all the video effects so the money budgeted to effects could be used elsewhere). The TeenGenius was changed from a villain to an unwitting patsy, and Max's role was greatly increased; in the original, Max and Edison never met, and Max spent the rest of the movie as a VJ for a pirate TV station. In the series, he and Edison became partners, breaking the Blipvert story together.

* TheCity: With a small dose of WhereTheHellIsSpringfield? Both American and British accents are ubiquitous and it's ambiguous what continent the series takes place in.
