Who remembers VR.5, the unfortunately short-lived scifi show from the mid 90's?

Lori Singer stars as Sydney Bloom, the daughter of a scientist who was working on virtual reality technology.  The 5 in VR.5 refers to the shows 'fifth level' of virtual reality, in which a person can interact with another and have effects on the physical world.  It was a really trippy show with a vocal fanbase.

The theme music came to the composer in a dream, which was very much in keeping with the surreal and oneiric nature of the show.  It's actually a fantastic soundtrack, and a limited number of CD's were printed and privately sold during the late 90's.

Starring a post-Footloose Lori Singer and a pre-Buffy Anthony Head, VR.5 was broadcast during 1995 and, like so many shows of this type in Australia, relegated to the 10.30pm time slot.  Oddly, only ten episodes were aired during the US run, but all 13 were shown overseas.  I used to avidly wait for it and eat chicken rolls while it played, such simple joys.

At least, that's what Gary Busey told me...

I always kinda thought the pilot got it off to a pretty good start, but it real cliched real quick...

I liked it. I wish some company like Shout Factory! would release it.

I have to admit, I had a thing for Lori Singer from when she was on the Fame TV series, so this show was a no-brainer for me. But, hey, VR.5 and Max Headroom would be perfect vehicles for reboots, as long as they both kept their dark and cynical approach to satire. Probably do better on HBO.
