Episode Summary

EDIT
Blipverts
AIRED:
In the near future, it will be illegal to have a television that can be shut off. Ratings are all that matters. To improve ratings, Network 23 creates "Blipverts." Blipverts are high speed commercials condensed into a few seconds and embed themselves into the viewers mind. Unfortunately, a few viewers have exploded while watching them. Network 23 star reporter, Edison Carter, discovers that the Network executive Ned Grossberg is aware of the problem and is covering up the issues. Ned decides to replace Edison with a computer stimulated version of Edison. Bryce Lynch creates this computer simulated version, who calls himself Max Headroom.moreless
