@jaguardog, yes, I used my first shortly after leaving college in the early 70s which I accessed remotely using a teletype keyboard attached to a mainframe via a 75 baud modem. For mainframe and mini computers for military, scientific/research and commercial use had been around since the 50s. The first build it yourself 8 bit micros, e.g. the Apple I, came out in the mid 70s with the Apple II out in 1977. But what you saw in the episode, e.g. the one in the bank, looked, or at least was meant to look like, more of a dumb terminal attached to a mini or a mainframe, which did all the actual work, rather than your standalone IBM type PC which came out around 1981.
