While browsing Amiga.org today, I noticed a thread posted by a forum member called Florida. I checked it out and to my surprise it contained information on a very cool website. The name of the site is Starring the Computer and it contains information on movies and TV-shows that features old computers. The guy behind the project is James Carter.
Being an Amigaholic, I just had to browse the Commodore section. It is safe to say that I was not disappointed.
Did you for example know that an Amiga 4000 can be seen in the movie “Quantum Apocalypse” from 2010? Or that Alf used an Amiga 2000 for trading stocks in an episode in season 4? An Amiga 1200 even appeared in Bones, the popular TV-series, in 2007. This was all new to me.
You will also find interesting information on computers like the Amstrad CPC 6128, the Atari ST, the Commodore 64 and last, but not least, the portable SX-64 (that’s an awesome computer..).
If you want to know more, please head over to Starring the Computer and you’ll get your fix. Highly recommended!
