Modern crime dramas
Or you have a CSI-esque image enhancement system that can zoom on the reflection in a shop window of a $20 bill across the street, read the serial number, and convict the Bad Guy. Complete with "tchtchtch" sound effects as the serial number digits roll into view on a big counter in the middle of the screen, "bing" when there's a match, and a nice big red flashing dialog box just to make doubly sure.
I wish my UIs were as exciting.
IT-related even if completely off-topic.
