The talk, interview and video show created for Channel Four was Max's original purpose, and spanned some thirty installments over between early 1985 and early 1987.

The show consisted of three seasons:

  • A video-only show that ran 13 episodes on Channel Four in early 1985, with Max as presenter and wisecrack artist. These episodes were never shown on US television and there is very little data about the content available.
  • A video and talk show with a small "junk room" set that ran 6 episodes in fall 1985. Max introduced videos, did comedy riffs and in four shows, interviewed prominent musical guests. These shows, some of which reused material from the first season, were repeated on Cinemax in November and December 1985.
  • An expanded video and talk show with a large set that ran 10 episodes, first on Cinemax from August to December 1986, and then repeated on Channel Four from January to March 1987.
