    There is an M6 in The Day the Earth Stood Still remake-the scene after the sphere landed at Central Park.
    Several Surefires : E1B, 6P (`95 Laser Products), C2, G2, G2L, Z2, M3, M6

    Ha, I knew someone here would know that model. Thanks.

    $2,500. Whew. Not good enough to use from helicopters?

    Mythbusters use light on a few episodes. But nothing noteworthy. However many of the myths that involve the SF (San Francisco not Surefire) police I see surefire weapon lights. Shoptguns and MP5s have Surefire weapon lights.

    In the original "The Day The Earth Stood Still", Klaatu (Michael Rennie) borrows an Everready 2D from Bobby Benson (Billy Gray), to signal his robot Gort.

    When I first saw Hellboy 2, I instantly recognized the Surefire M6's and when I told my parents, they were like... "Not again"

    Sometimes it sucks being a Flashaholic. Thank God for Candle Power Forums.

    I've seen that episode. My sister asked "What is that flashlight?" Since that light is my next purchase, I was able to tell her what it was.

    In Cities of the Underworld on History channel the host uses what looks like a couple of different Inovas (saw them again tonight). I've seen several different episodes and he always has a tail switch operated LED light. I'm not that familiar with Inovas though, so I'm not sure that's what they are.

    Can anyone else confirm this? Anyone else see this show?

    I'm watching the show right now. (The episode about Roman Gladiators).

    It looks as though he's using the same Inova model. The camera angles is what makes it seem as though it's more than one model. Got a couple of close up views of the light.

    It's an Inova X03 w/ natural finish. (You can get the same model at any Target store).

    Might have just been that one episode where he solely relied on the X03.

    I did see what appeared to be either a natural X5 or possibly X1 in the hand of one of the guys who was showing him around the underground tombs.

    I was definitely an x5 in the other guys hand. There was a scene when the host used what looked like an incan that was black. It was only in one of the scenes. It struck me as odd since he always used the x03. Does anyone know what light that was?

    I thought it looked like one of the Inovas at Target. I don't own any Inovas, but thought it looked kind of familiar.

    Tonight on the all new Criminal Minds, the officers involved in the vehicle chase and the FBI agents were using SF X300™ LED weapon lights.

    It's not unknown for sounds to be added during post-production.
    Either because the person didn't realise it wasn't meant to have a sound, or because they knew it didn't and thought it should.

    Sort of like views through movie binoculars, where you and I know that the binocular image will become one full image of what we are looking at, the movie people will show two images of the same target. This, I guess, to let us know that it is a binocular view of the target being viewed. In the clicky sound of the flashlight, that is done, I would guess, to let us know that the flashlighht was turned on. Duh!

    Just finished watching The Smoking Gun: World's Dumbest Criminals 9.

    #7 on the list was a guy from England who covered up his appearence with a parka, and tried robbing a convenience store.... with a black 3D Maglite.

    He was holding it vertically, up against the side of his torso. The clerk was not impressed, hit the alarm, and locked the parka bandit in the store with him. The would-be robber used his Maglite to bust a window, and escape.... at least until the cops caught up with him.

    Just saw a re-run of last Tuesday's episode of Estate of Panic, on the Sci-Fi channel. The three contestants who were left, near the end of the episode, had to dig through a spooky graveyard for cash. Being outside, at night, each was issued a large black Maglite. The guy had what looked like a 4D model, while the two women had what appeared to be 6D models.
