Although Brooker started his career at PC Zone he does have a real affection for our beloved beige box of tricks.

Back on topic, I'm still waiting for someone to point me towards a clip of my fave Amiga on TV moment - and that's Aussie soap Neighbours, from either 1989 or 1990 when the character "Josh" is attempting to remove a virus from the Amiga in Paul Robinson's office, using the PD utility "Graphics Ripper". He even starts it up from one of those old CLI menu utility disks...

CBM Australia got a credit for quite some time at the end of Neighbours, presumably for supplying that solitary A2000!
I completely forgot about the Paul Robinson virus removal!

They also had 2 x 500's. One at Paul's house and one at Josh's house (Robinson household).

Remember when Josh came home one day with a black box (was a modem). Hacked into the school PeeCee and changed their grades?

Only the Amiga makes it possible to goto jail
