Added DiffLines:

* JustHereForGodzilla: Inverted. Most people who initially tune into the series are expecting Max and his wacky antics. Oddly, most serious fans mostly ignore Max himself to to focus on the {{Cyberpunk}} world-building and social commentary.

Added DiffLines:

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Max Headroom was massively influential to the development of the aethstetic and ideas behind cyberpunk. Its influence is huge in ''TabletopGame/Cyberpunk2020'' and its offshoots as well.

* BadassDecay:
** Bryce Lynch goes from a pubescent Mengele in the film to a Steve Urkel in the series. However the very last episode seems to indicate that the producers were interested in exploring the unethical aspects of Bryce's personality. He's on the verge of going back to working for Grossberg, out of sheer boredom, before Edison appears and literally drags him by the ear back to Network 23. (The same episode also contains one of the most hilarious lines of the series, which explains what happened to Bryce's computer-generated parrot)

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: Raking is described as a {{Bloodsport}} and horrifying gladiator competition but it seems really fun. It seems like you could have a lot of fun with it (and the original form was fun according to Max) with a bit more in the way of rules as well as safety equipment.

* OvershadowedByControversy: One of the things the series gets remembered for was [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Headroom_broadcast_signal_intrusion the incident where a Chicago PBS station got hijacked by somebody wearing a Headroom mask]]. You'll often see direct quotes from the incident in comments of ''Max Headroom'' related videos.
