Commodore Amiga 1200 in Bones - Season 3, Episode 7, "Boy in the Time Capsule" (2007)

The forensics team use the Amiga 1200 to play a game written by the deceased, which they suspect might have been the motive for murder.

Importance: ***
Realism: ***
For some reason the Amiga has been painted black. The use of a PC XT to load the floppy disk seems suspect too.

Visibility: ***

There was a black A1200 variant in existance (can't remember which special edition it was)

No there wasn't JobDone, you're thinking of the CDTV maybe, but that was an A500 inside a VCResqe case

It is entirely possible that the XT was running BSD or some other Unix-Like OS, and the amiga was running the XWin11 Window Server...

Actually having worked in prop departments before I think that what went down is that the Amiga was from either somebody's office or was once somebody's audio or video edit system. Not understanding that computers used to be shaped like that the prop guy(s) guessed it was just the keyboard and dug up the PC XT to serve as the actual computer. Not having seen the full episode I figured from the clip that it was the normal shite flash trickery they usually do on these shows instead of showing a real operating system and just run green on the monitor then chromakey it in later.

Amiga 600?

Most likely aging had turned the computer casing yellow, so the owner who borrowed the prop had it overpainted before the use of more advanced colour restoration techniques were widespread.

DDT: Amiga 600 is missing the numpad. This is definitely an A1200.

This bit starts at 18:30 on the episode, I just took a screen shot and sent it to the web admin for us Amiga fans. The chick mentioned it has a 6800 processor and not a 68000. Definitely an A1200 due to the keyboard shape.
