    I really think the old one was better but that is just judging from the start of the Blipverts episoide the whole atmosphere was better in the UK version i just hope it gets to be as great as it its amazing but not as gribbing

    Just thought of this show while talking about Nielsen ratings and how on this show they monitored TV viewers second by second.

    This is an idea show to do a remake of.  Get Matt Frewer back to reprise his role as MMMax Headroom.    If some day they do resurrect it, they need to keep that Bladerunner type atmosphere.

    I think the atmosphere is the same....different cast but same story and the characters are still played the same way...however no doubt the UK version was instrumental into making the series.
