The IRC client X-Chat reminds me of AmIRC, but I think the similarity is deliberate

The graphics in the old gameshow Catchphrase make me wonder if they were done on an Amiga. [ Show youtube player ].

Also, Friday nights in the early 90's as a young teen sat in front of the Miggy on one CRT and these two on the other...

the simpsons intro music. It reminds of living with my dad and having the simpsons 500+ pack. Dad had sky in the lounge and used to stop playing and go in to watch it when i heard the music.
the rest of the time he watched sport
