    Did anyone see the promo video for TNT Amusements new reality show High Score? If a network purchases the show it could be good and bad for the hobby. Good in that more items could come to market once people are aware that there is a market. Bad in that everyone thinks their stuff is worth some crazy price. The link to the Vimeo video is below:

    I'd watch. I like how Todd is sitting in front of a Congo machine. Kept seeing the name pop up on the DMD

    The show being aired + the general public = a re-living of fond memories that may lead to the purchase of what seems like an old friend .......I like it!!!!!!

    I still can't believe these are the same guys who threw a LAH and SF2 off a building. I'd rather see a company that doesn't throw their pins off a roof to get a show.

    I was expecting to hate the trailer, but the TNT guy is kind of amusingly weird.

    However, note to evil reality show producer out there: Please do not make a show called Pimp My Pinball or something.

    "The games that are fixable we take you through in detail, but not so much it leaves you lost. The games that are beyond repair they usually light on fire or throw off the roof."

    Light on fire? Throw off the roof? That's probably not the best thing to say at this time.

    I thought so too. The first time I saw his "acting" ability was on his website promoting his business and party place. The whole hour glass thing was a little much.

    I get pretty aggravated when people destroy things of intrinsic value. Those pins weren't even cannibalized for parts. Jerk offs.

    I don't know......isn't the whole reality TV thing kinda over with?As far as whether or not it's good or bad for the hobby,I think its a non-factor.I don't think any pawn shops got rich or poor off of Pawn Stars and I don't think any Storage places changed their rates after Storage Wars aired.With that said..good for a quick laugh...maybe as a youtube channel show.Scott

    Throwing pins off the roof?! Why did they do that?

    I was shocked and outraged how someone could reedit my show with this filthy stuff with my children! I can go along with a joke, but this is downright PERVERTED...and the creature that did this has some serious problems. And contrary to what he says about this being "Fair Use" of my infomercial...its NOT.
    How many of you would approve of this jerk editing your video and making YOUR children do whats shown in this and then having the balls to put it up on YouTube? Todd Tuckey

    I agree that the video is complete garbage. I also think its funny that Todd Tuckey, if this is really him, joins a forum only after someone posts a crappy video. You would think that if he wanted respect that he would add something to this forum and further enhance his image. I don't know the guy personally so Im not going to throw stones but his reception in the pinball world is mixed and usually falls on the negative. Since I travel out to Philly a lot I intend to stop by, see the store, and perhaps meet the 'King of PA Pin."

    from the video "unfortunately at the auctions it's not just dealers, it's also the customers there bidding, which of course drives the price up"

    Umm, actually it's dealers like you selling them at outrageous prices that drives the market up in general.

    God I hate this guy so much!
