They say that imitation is the the sincerest form of flattery so imagine my surprise watching Dopesick (S1, E5) on Disney+ when the hard working DEA agent is introduced to a tool that looks like Agent Ransack:
“… what’s taken you months will now be accomplished in just a few seconds.”
I say ‘looks like’ because they’ve moved a few things around. Here’s the Dopesick screen shot (approx. 12:09s):
And here’s a screenshot of Agent Ransack circa 2003 (1.7.3):
They’ve removed the ‘File name’ fields and moved the date and size fields but the rest is identical.
Disney probably should’ve asked Mythicsoft for permission to use an altered version of Agent Ransack in their show but I’m satisfied with the compliment.
