Hi,

as I am to a significant part the standard nerd, of course I love my Douglas Adams.

So when Netflix made two seasons of "Dirk Gently" I knew i had to see it, even whily my expectations were pretty low. Actually, I was positively surprised. While by no means a great series, it does provide some great fun and is a welcome deviation from some standard US-series that I have seen in the past. It appears somewhat british - to me, at least :) .

Anyone else seen the show?

The great thing is that in two episodes a C64 was featured as a computer to access legacy files. Although not set up correctly, at least _some_ cables were attached :) !! The screen output isn't original, either. Of course :D .

Nevertheless, I highly enjoyed seeng the C64 there :) .

I didn't know about this show either.

I couldn't help but notice that in the second picture you can clearly see the drive is not actually plugged into the C64 as nothing is plugged into the serial ports. :lol:

Nor does it look like anything is plugged into the monitor port on the 64. Details, details, come on producers.
