Simon and Simon have a Hokus Pokus in their office. He was actually playing it while they were talking before I could grab my camera.

I believe I saw an Abra Ca Dabra in a new Windows 10 ad. Pinball is every where...

On Bull, the episode aired today, "Never Saw the Sign".
In the coffee internet café scene. There was a pin in the back ground. Although it had a 4 player head from the 70's, the backglass appeared to be a photo shopped overlay, single player.

Firepower and pinbot in the grocery store on Raising Hope. It was a thanksgiving episode.

Also saw the one on Simon and Simon, the playfield looked more modern than Hokus Pokus when he was playing it but I could be mistaken.

Quoted from Darcy:

Bull. There was a pin in the back ground.

I saw that. It flashed by real fast. I was playing pinball with the TV on overhead.

I just watched that show and missed it completely.

Life imitating art I suppose. It's just like the lawyer in the show proved, you can see things that are right in front of you and your brain doesn't register them...my brain anyhow.

Quoted from o-din:

It was in the background and was only briefly in view.

Not Real pins, but these were in the background from a season seven episode of American Dad:

I'm trying to find a bigger picture, but the one on the left is called "Racing", and the one on the right is an "Eight is Enough" pin.

Grease 2 (which is set in 1961) has a bowling alley scene with a Travel Time (1973), Drop A Card (1971), El Toro (1970), and at least two others in the deep background that I can't make out.

My fave, Dr. Who on another fave, Diners, Drive-ins & Dives.

#611 7 years ago

Okay this one is driving me nuts. It's some coin-op game in Friday the 13th Part II. Next to the Kiss pinball machine. Anybody?

Quoted from bob_e:

It looks like it can hold a lot of empties on top of it...

*Warning* profanity used in the following scene.

#615 7 years ago

At the beginning of Rocky he carries a drunk into a bar and there's a pin against the wall. The cabinet appears to be a Lucky Ace but the back glass doesn't match. Thoughts?

#616 7 years ago

An ATT commercial for their data had a SKYLAB in the background in one of the scenes. While two people were playing fooseball. The back glass was changed to remove "skylab" but the rest of the glass was unchanged as well as the cabinet art.

#617 7 years ago

Just caught a 15 second promo for "The Simpsons" on KCOP 13 Los Angeles that features what appears to be a Future pinball rendition of the Data East Simpsons pinball machine.

A FB friend sent me a picture of a movie "Second hand Lions" 2003. There is a bar scene with a slightly covered up Odds and Evens. In the scene it is in the background, the green stands out.

#620 7 years ago

I'm trying to get a still from a current AT&T commercial that has a quick shot of a Williams Skylab / Spacelab in it.

Recently watched a documentary on Leonard Nimoy by his son and learned Three Men and a Baby was directed by Leonard Nimoy. Fascinating!

Maybe it should have been Bally Star Trek in the scene! .

Nitro Groundshaker in the bar in "Easy Money".

#631 7 years ago

Today Jan 24th. On the TV show InnerSPACE. They did a short segment on 'Wizard Mode'.

In last night's new episode of "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" (Season 12, episode 4), there were two games visible in a mirror. One was a BK2K with replacement backglass art saying "Knight's Lair." A decal, probably, since most of the art was standard, just the middle was covered, and although the game was on the bg was unlit. The other had only the left edge visible and I could not identify it, but someone might recognize it.

Had meant to re-watch today to try to figure out what that was. Didn't look familiar at all watching once through. Makes sense why now.

Just noticed tonight, In Gilmore Girls 4th season, Dean is in the arcade talking to Luke. Behind Dean is a Revenge From Mars pin, and behind Luke is a Bally Night Rider and a Stern Memory Lane.

The latest Cox Communcations commercial for TV out here has a kid playing a pinball machine at the end of it, something like a home made maybe similar to Stars.

#637 7 years ago

Finally watched on old movie "The Warriors" and in the train stations appears to be two pins, 2001 and another in background.

Looks like a 1970 Aquarius, with a black painted back box.

it may be a Gottlieb Aquarius in the far back.

#640 7 years ago
Quoted from Darcy:

There is also a pin in the bar scene, it is in the background, out of focus. This is the second Timeless episode with pins on screen. Some one on the show likes them. The series is filmed in Vancouver.

Timeless episode, 'Karma Chameleon' airing tonight. Another pin in the bar scene. An multi player EM game. There are many different shots of it in the background.

That is third episode with a pin in it.

"No Tomorrow" on Netflix has a Meteor (I think) in the romantic lead's house. Extra well done because the character is convinced the earth will be destroyed by a meteor in 8 months.

Obviously, you have the power of crows. Do you drink FIGHT MILK by any chance?

I saw that episode last night - Thought it might be a Super Soccer?
