SGI O2s in CSI NY episode

Unread postby bjornl » Sat Oct 17, 2009 10:22 am

In season 5 episode 17 of CSI NY (fairly recent broadcasted in Sweden) you can spot a couple of O2s.

Perhaps not the best way to show a product, but at least there are more PCs and MACs :-)

Good chance it was shot on location in an actual technology recycling center - it looks pretty much like most of the ones I've been to.

After they get tossed around a bit and have stuff stacked on top of them they'll be off to eBay <or of to hamei's part of the world for "recycling">.

There are a lot of SGI monitors in NCIS, I am interested to see if they will still be there in the new NCIS?

I certainly always thought it was an Origin (or Onyx2 rack) in MTAC.

Like another poster mentioned, there's at least one 1600SW on somebody's desk (or perhaps everybody's desk?). Details are fuzzy, but I'm sure I've seen the 1600SW, complete with SGI logo, in nearly every episode. I'll be sure to pay special attention when it airs tonight.

Given the age of the hardware, I always figured the set decorators just raided the dumpster behind the special effects department to get obsolete computers to use as props.
