Red Dwarf:
1. red dwarf has a few in them! Holoship springs to mind.. when rimmer does the mind test thingy they are using what looks like amiga 2000's?
2. In the episode where Lister Deletes the Agatha Christie novels from hollys database hes doing it on an old C64!
3. in more or less all the Red Dwarf episodes I've seen, especially when they're in StarBug, the Amiga's are easy to spot. And whoever thought it was spotted in the Mindwarp-test of Rimmer's, was right, afait

Neighbours:
1. I remeber one of the neighbours episodes, where they were trying to kill a virus but the screen showed a graphics ripper from an early hacker tools compilation disk
2. yeh neighbours had an a500 in it for ages! I think the same one was wheeled around the set for the scene's? the docters surgery springs to mind!
3. Watching Neighbours one dreary afternoon in 1989/90 after a late night coding session, only to see "Josh" attempting to kill Paul Robinson's virus using "Graphics Searcher" from a tools disk (you even got to see him selecting the program from a CLI menu in close up!)
Neighbours always credited Commdore Australia at the end of the program during this period.

Quote:
Stepfather III:
In the film Stepfather III, a nice and creepy little thriller, the boy (Andy) has an A500. It made me cringe watching the title character unhooking the peripherals while it was still running. Nice little B-thriller with the good sense to use Amigas for props! I think it's only available for US/NTSC, though.

ALF:
1. I think ALF feautures has also some A500.
2. I think in the episode where ALF made the music video for Lynn had an Amiga (or was it a C64?).

48 Hours or Another 48 Hours)
Correct me if Im wrong as it's a long time since Ive seen this movie, but once when I saw a movie with Eddie Murphy and Nick Nolte (48 Hours? or Another 48 Hours?), Nolte is looking up something on a computer screen at the police station and I seem to remember thinking it was an A500

BBC soap East Enders
BBC soap East Enders had an A500 sitting in the background in one of the characters flats for a while in the late 80's. He was an artist or graphic designer as I recall, but I'm not sure if you ever saw the machine doing anything.
