The seventh episode made for the second ABC series season was the last to be shown, as late-season filler.

The complete episode, from original broadcast masters, is available on the Shout! Factory DVD set.


20 minutes into the future, we open with a commercial for the Pay Education TV, the "right choice" for parents who care. We then see the city at night, being pelted with what appear to be small meteorites. It's "Sky Clearance Day" again.

Notes & Commentary

The voiceover at the beginning has a mention of the cancellation of the "Max Headroom Show," and a return to calm after Cheviot restored it to the airwaves. A bit of very black humor on the part of the production crew, as this episode was only shown months after the end of the series run.

Opening Credits

This episode uses the standard second-season opening credits.

Subliminal Credits

This episode has no subliminal credits in the Zik-Zak montage.
