My wife and daughter watch these HGTV shows like House Hunters and some of the highly repetitive fix-it/flip-it faire.
Walking through the living room I heard "pinball and skeeball".
It was only on for a flash but the husband in his episode had a DESW:
My wife and daughter were watching a recent episode of Nashville and one of the characters was playing a pin for five minutes while talking with another person. I waited for a glimpse of the machine, but when it finally showed it, all I caught was a topper that said "Game Over".....arghhh!
I was watching "The Waltons" and caught a "Guys and Dolls" & "A,B,C," at the Dew Drop Inn! Sorry no pic!!
Dancing with the Stars last night (yes I watch it ) featured a contestant dancing in an "Arcade" with a pin being played. The pin looked like a Revenge from Mars cabinet type, and it appeared to have a populated/lit playfield, but the cabinet/backbox were reskinned to reflect one of the judges, "Len's Revenge".
Contestant was Simone Biles, the Olympic Gymnast, who coincidentally got voted off last night, despite being a great performer.
There were some EMs in an episode of My Name is Earl I was watching last night.
The one where Catalina has to jump at the jiggly bar to get Joy out of jail.
I'll have to watch it again and see which ones they were.
Progressive Insurance. Pin in the new Man Cave ad. Starts off looking normal, the man cave room ends up mostly white by the end of the ad.
A tourism ad for Portland has an animated couple playing pinball at Ground Kontrol.
A scene on an episode of the Avengers (60s detective show) tonight involved playing a pinball machine as a metaphor for "nudging" a contact. Through the magic of TV the shots of the backglass were a Gottlieb Show Boat but the sound was a Bally in my book, not sure what the cabinet shots were of.
A current Adult Swim bumper about "Things you don't need" includes a "Family guy pinball machine".
Watched Marathon Man for the 100th time last night and there's a Gottlieb Polo in action during a scene in Paris.
And, yes, it is safe. You'll only get that if you've seen the movie.
In the season finale of Kevin Can Wait, there's a startup company and there's a Punchy the Clown in the office. I had never seen that before so had to search to find out what it was. Turns out there's only 103 units ever made back in 1993, so it's a little odd that it was on the show. Maybe one of the staff's personal collection?
I had a Trident before....actually liked it. A cool flowing game with a good layout. Some people don't like no outlane on the left just a return lane, but I think that added a lot to gameplay. For an old Stern, the game played fast as hell. My buddy has it now.
On Superior Donuts, 'Arthurs Day off' 2 pins in the bowling alley back ground, Gogar for sure, couldn't figure out the other one.
