Even Shatner is amazed Jack hasn't put the Outer Limits into the Que to get made yet!

Night Gallery really would be a more appropriate "true sequel" to the Twilight Zone, featuring Rod Serling and everything. Where Twilight Zone was sci-fi oriented, Night Gallery was Serling's followup show featuring tales of the supernatural and horror.

HP Lovecraft stuff, tales of weirdness...get the guy who impersonated Serling to do it again, have insanity-producing things like Pickman's Model in the game. It would be another chance for Lawlor to really get weird and produce a real sequel. The only problem, as in Outer Limits, is the lack of recognition that comes with the oft-rebooted Twilight Zone. That and the fact it's not 75+ years old.

But we also know that Lawlor excels at original themes, over the top and well unified.

Quoted from Tubes:

It's not about making a pin that is a sequel to Twilight Zone, rather than the competitor Outer Limits to gain it's place in pinball history along with the original Twilight Zone.

All 3 seasons of Outer Limits were fantastic IMO and had as good of writing as the original Twilight Zone while Night Gallery that I loved as a kid has not stood the test of time as there are plenty of outdated dud episodes which do not even come close to the quality and originality of the original Twilight Zone and Rod Serlings writing IMO once again.

Wish others would chime in with their opinion on this as well.

Night Gallery was Rod Serling's writing. All 3 seasons were full of Serling-penned episodes. 3 paintings would introduce the three stories. The door in TZ vs. the paintings in NG. El Spielbergo even directed the pilot film. Twilight Zone fans tend to favor Night Gallery as a true Twilight Zone sequel and grudgingly accept the Outer Limits. The loyalty lays with Serling.

At this rate, JJPs 3rd machine could be the 10th anniversary WoZ edition

ba-dum-dum.

Ok...PL's JJP3#- Im anxious to "See It" and i really hope JJP has the wherewithal to keep it TOTALLY under wraps until they are nearly ready to ship.... THAT would be EPIC.

#106 6 years ago

While TZ had some sci-fi episodes, I would not label the entire series sci-fi oriented. So many of the episodes had nothing to do with science fiction.

#107 6 years ago

Miley Cyrus Pinball Twerk!

The wrecking ball toy would be cool at least...

Since no one's doing Bevis and Butthead why not?

#108 6 years ago

Unlicensed history goes something like maniac dirt bikers, maniac earthquakes, maniac carnival operation, maniac stormchasing, maniac road touring, maniac safecracking, maniac caddyshack golfing. What's the next logical step in this unlicensed pin progression? What would a maniac pinball-themed game look like?

#109 6 years ago
Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

Wish others would chime in with their opinion on this as well.

I actually liked all three shows. Some of the sci-fi stuff on Twilight Zone was great! I just like Outer Limits a little more because I'm a big monster fan. I've written an anthology film that's a combination of OL and TZ. Evidently, anthology films are not real popular right now.

Quoted from Magic_Mike:

I hope that the next title would be something to lure in the next generation of players, instead of catering to the 40-50 something crowd.

Young people are so video game obsessed these days I don't know if its possible to cater to them just yet. Also the hipster generation are preferring to live in tiny urban places. Doesn't leave much physical space for pinball. This hobby is gonna stay very niche until it finally dies.

... I'm not holding my breath JJP #3 is gonna stay original. It just might be the sign of the times. People respect known brands which is probably necessary for this shit to sell these days. Proven video game franchises are gonna be the thing in pinball in like 10 years.

Guess "Verne's World" already counts for "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea"

#113 6 years ago

Something totally original.

#114 6 years ago

I own all 3 re-mastered seasons. I would buy this pin. Farscape too.

#115 6 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

Jack is on record for game #3 being non licensed. So holding my breath doesn't seem really unreasonable.

Jack had on his own website that game number 2 was to be a non- licensed theme . He also said in one of speeches at MGC that game #2 would be a non-licensed theme . This doesn't seem to be the case unless JJP somehow releases a game between Wizard of Oz and Hobbit . If that does happen game 3 would be the hobbit and thus a licensed theme . Anyways I highly doubt that JJP will ever put out a non-licensed theme but I hope I'm wrong .

#116 6 years ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

The Hobbit changed that. Release had to coincide with the movie, and then the move got shoved later in the year.

Quoted from trilogybeer:

Pat Lawlor's pin ( #3 for JJP ) will be non licensed.

LTG : )™

#117 6 years ago

I think JJP should do a Willy Wonka pinball based off the original of course...how cool would that be?

#118 6 years ago

I think JJP should build games people paid for three years ago before announcing any new title, but that's just my opinion

#119 6 years ago
Quoted from jesster64:

its a poor mans Twilight Zone. How about an official 3 stooges pin or marx brothers pin.

I would absolutely buy a Marx Bros pin.

#120 6 years ago

I thought some details were released and its going to complete the Earthshaker / Whirlwind natural disaster trilogy from Lawlor.

#121 6 years ago
Quoted from Pinballocks:

I believe there were only 1.5 seasons of TOL.

It was far superior to Twilight Zone IMO - the eps were an hour long, the cinematography was beautiful (excessive shadows, ceiling and multiple floor shots, many excessive filters), the soundtrack was just a notch below Forbidden Planet, and the cheap effects still looked damn good.

Don't Open til Doomsday gave this 10 year old many nightmares.....

#122 6 years ago

I think The Outer Limits was more consistently excellent than Twilight Zone. Both were great though.

#123 6 years ago
Quoted from Methos:

Original series, maybe. The one from the 90s on Showtime/semi-first-run syndication went for like 7 seasons. I enjoyed that series a lot, personally.

#124 6 years ago
Quoted from ZenTron:

Just don't call it hurricane, lest it be confused for another game that completed a trilogy (and in that case is the most reviled if the three).

Quoted from pinball_keefer:

Most of the same production team also worked on SG1 and SGA as well reusing stories, props, and even characters.

Best shows ever! sci fi channel used to rule Fridays nights to bad NBC found away to really mess the channel and kill lot's of good shows on scifi.

ALSO the new name sucks.

#126 6 years ago

Tales from the Darkside - a little campy, but classic 80s. Or just do one based on Stephen Kings collected works...

#127 6 years ago

the way things are going the third title will be out in 2020 maybe!!!!lol

#128 6 years ago

This title might make a good home brew or one off custom for someone. Not really appealing as a commercial pinball machine.

You are living seriously in the past, Sir.

This might have been true & funny a year ago, amusing a few months ago, but it's just annoying today.

Feels like a wife still making bitchy comments about how you cheated 5 years ago.

Just let it go, it's old news.

#130 6 years ago

The series ran from 1963-1965. I misspoke, I meant to say 3 volumes. I grew up on this stuff, being born in 63, mom was a huge sci fi fan.

Big point here. In DC also the new trend is micro units. 300-400 sq ft. As they move in the city, dump car ownership and enjoy small spaces in great locations the idea of pins in the home is fading fast.
The one upswing is the lifestyle is based around going out and not hibernating so clubs with pins can grow again. Maybe...

It's ok, but nowhere near as good as the orignal.Since it was made in BC, the style and production are similar to a thousand other shows made during that era, it really doesn't stand out as the original did. Some stories were excellent, but they don't have the same punch as the original.

#134 6 years ago

One Step Beyond would be my choice.

Twilight Zone just badly copied One Step Beyond.

An don't forget there are two episodes with William Shatner too amongst other stars.

Well if Jersey Jacks does not pick up the Outer Limits, Maybe Spooky Pinball? Thoughts?

Might be right up their alley.......

If you meant Serling's later series "Night Gallery," I might agree with you, but nothing compares to Twilight Zone. It was and remains in a class by itself. Serling was a genius. The nuances of humanity in all its fears and insecurities and nobility were brilliantly displayed in varied manner of styles. My favorite episode is "Night of the Meek" with Art Carney. Shatner's kinda small time compared to the multitude of great ones that starred on the show.

Somebody make a Jimi Hendrix pin please. I know it won't happen but think it could be a killer music themed pin.

Well, If not the Outer Limits for the 3rd one, what about these two?

Both cool, hip, and classic.

The complete series for Kolchak and the first season for 1999 as the 2nd one was awful.
