Search and Research #122

You know, I wish I could make strips like this all the time. This punchline is based on the ending of an actual conversation I had with my buddy Jason (who is a real life computer programmer) one day, whereupon I immediately wrote it down for future use. I was trying to figure out how to work that line into a strip tonight, and suddenly realized that Bo√ľk reminded me of Max Headroom, who at one time had a tv show but who I remember from the ads for New Coke back in the 80's, so that kind of turned into a second joke for people who remember obscure tv characters. Anybody else remember Max Headroom?

I remember Max Headroom! Awsome that you do too! The eighties obscure TV SF is way underrated as a cultural phenomenon! Good one!

Heh heh... Max Headroom. Mat Frewer has done so much odd Sci-Fi stuff.

Hey, here's a trivia question for you: What movie starring Michael J. Fox did Matt Frewer appear in as Max Headroom?

Of course I remember Max Headroom. I loved the complete obscurity of that show! Cool strip! Keep 'em coming.

Jason, that's much too easy a trivia question - BttF2 of course!

Heh heh... Yes, if it had been asked of me I would've gotten pretty quickly too! I've seen all those movies WAY more than anyone probably ever should. I just realized that that movie turns 20 this year. Wow, time McFly's!
