      From 1987, Max Headroom: Dream Thieves reunites Network 23’s star investigative reporter, Edison Carter (Matt Frewer) with an old friend, Paddy Ashton (Mark Lindsay Chapman). Actually, Paddy was in competition with him for the Network 23 job but wasn’t chosen by Murray the producer (Jeffrey Tambor). When Paddy dies in pursuit of his big story, Edison takes over the investigation, determined to get to the

      truth.

      The truth is another one of those scary concepts in that it’s not that big of a stretch to see it happening in the real world in which we live. In this case, there is a new subscriber dream channel about to hit the airwaves. They are paying people for their dreams, their unedited dreams as they happen.

      • the dreams can lead to nightmare trauma, which is what killed Paddy. Now it’s up to Edison and his team to get the story out there and stop the new sleep channel from airing.

        Chapman really didn’t impress me with his performance and, at the same time, I thought that the motivations were a bit askew. I’m still not all that clear on why it was

        such a big deal to Edison to get to the truth. There was a lot of guilt or something revolving his being hired. It just seemed a bit much overall.

        So while I’m intrigued by the portion of the story that focuses on this new dream channel, the other elements of the show don’t hold me as well. It’s a bit of a 50/50 split.
