    East bound and down, HBO series, there is a c band dish in one of there episodes, I forget which one. Where kenny powers and his friend is sitting on back porch, does not show complete dish. Just part of it.

    When you play call of duty mw3 you get to play at a dome. It has satellite dishes all over it.

    I always remember the home improvement episode where Tim supposedly fixed a dish but you never saw it

    In an episode of Pinky and the Brain, they get stuck in a bad spoof of The Real World, and one of the housemates is using Brain's fiberglass dish for skateboarding tricks while Brain is trying to beam a threatening message to world leaders, messing with the signal. I need to go back and find that episode to see how accurate it was. It was usually pretty good at including actual science.

    Wasn't there one in the background or on the property of Rick Dales old shop on American Restoration? It's been a while since I've seen any of those episodes.
