Hey pinball2020
Create a key post with title with $$instructions$$
so it is the first one on the list of the Key post summary,
and include the instructions for how to use key post
to search for TV shows or movies that are already posted
to avoid duplicate posts.

It takes, on average. about two weeks to go thru 50 posts on this topic,
so maybe post the key post topic search instructions at top of each page.

Antiques Roadshow S19/E15 aired April 27, 2015

Visited Pacific Pinball Museum and did a segment about 3:30 minutes long on pinball. Antiques Roadshow Appraiser James Supp gave some history on pinball and talked in more detail about two specific games Fireball and The Addams Family. There are about 30-35 games that are shown with 10-15 of them easily identified. Have fun identifying them all.

Pretty cool pinball moment in The Holdovers (2023, starring Paul Giamatti) when the young protagonist almost gets in a bar fight over who has next on a Domino machine (machine was 1968 and movie is set circa 1970).
Great movie. Highly recommend.

Posted already from 6 months ago, #4437.
using same basic screenshot.

Despite all the above talk about checking the key post index first,
apparently some just do not get it nor want to get it.

It is a good movie!
And pinball is used more than just a prop
as it does have a fairly integral part in the scene.

Quoted from o-din:

I do it every time so I don't waste more time trying to find a decent stream I can take screenshots from.

I find I have to do it a lot recently because there was a time period that I couldn't get on Pinside while I was in the hospital and needed to catch up on posts. Fortunately in mid January they made some changes in the access to certain websites so I was finally able get back on Pinside.

EATPM is in the roller rink scene from the movie Van Wilder, for a split second. I literally just seen this the other day while channel surfing.

Just a picture to complete this post.

Nice to see the other machine but unfortunately, nothing to tie it to. Van Wilder was our ninth post on the thread . The post you are referring to is sort of additional find (and thanks for that ).

Quoted from dmacy:

Found a FH watching a Married with Children episode. The game was off but a college kid was playing it???
And HS2 in Van Wilder:

A brand new music video by Randy Travis shows scenes from the studio. In one scene there’s a Captain Fantastic in the background.

Was watching YouTube for worst movies ever made for a laugh and saw clips of this movie called “champagne & bullets”, (so bad it’s funny). Then saw an Aztec and sharpshooter in background during the movie review. I’m guessing this movie hasn’t been mentioned on here before. Here’s a couple screenshots

Nope, no need to guess. I found it by searching key posts very quickly.

You can search key posts too - please see this link: (Or just go to post 4433)

Quoted from Pablito350:

Pins in bad movies seem to be finding me lately. FanboyFlicks did a fun review on this one.
This movie goes by many names; Champagne and Bullets, Road to Revenge, and if you watch Red Letter Media, you might know it as Geteven.

The way I see it is if you see something someone else has already posted, quote him and say something like "wasn't that great".

That way there will be more posts here before they start showing season 4 of The Rookies.

Sea Patrol Season 03 Episode 03 "China Dolls"

Fish Tails. Attempt at posting (thanks @AJB4) didn't quite pick up the screen shots the first time a few years ago. Here you go.

Quoted from AJB4:

ok so the screen grab didn't work so well.

Ally McBeal S01 E22 "Alone Again"

Firepower
Future Spa Thanks to mooch and Mr_Tantrum for pointing out it wasn't a Split Second.

Was watching Ally McBeal and saw them. Looks like bob_e beat me to it two years ago. But no pictures. Here you go.

Quoted from bob_e:

Ally Mcbeal S1 E21 or E22 at the end of the show one of the guys was at an arcade.
Riding a motorcycle video game in the background was a Fire Power and I think a Split Second.
I will go back on HULU and try to get pictures tomorrow.

Many pinball machines in "Skatetown USA" (William A Levey, 1979), with Patrick Swayze in his first appearance on screen. I wasn't able to identify all the games, but I did recognize the following ones.

Gottlieb Golden Arrow, Gottlieb Surf Champ, Williams Space Mission, Gottlieb Count-Down, Gottlieb Pinball Pool, Williams Little Chief, Gottlieb Dragon, Gottlieb Royal Flush, Gottlieb Target Alpha, Gottlieb Close Encounters of the Third Kind (SS).

Billy Barty was in that movie. Then later he bought an old roller rink in our town and renamed it "Billy Barty's Roller Fantasy". It also had a few pinball machines. Lots of famous and some not so famous bands played there throughout the 80s as well.

Dude. That’s nice in theory. But I’ve now come to this thread three times to post about a pinball machine I saw in something. Each time dutifully scrolling through hundreds of topic indexes to make sure I don’t commit the apparently unforgivable sin of making the same citation as someone else. One time I missed seeing something was already cited so I took the time to screen shot and post - only to be chastised for doing so.
Just now I spent a few minutes scrolling through the topic index looking for a Simpsons episode to post about and it wasn’t previously cited. And in doing that search to avoid the unforgivable sin, lost my enthusiasm to post about it.
Is it really so bad to have two or more posts with the same citation? BFD. Just fucking post about stuff you enjoy.

#4975 37 days ago

I don't make the rules around here or even try to enforce them, it was only a suggestion.

Just to add to my previous post. Same episode is on now, but earlier on in the bad guy's hangout.

Missed Black Hole the first time.
