I spotted a Pinbot today in an episode of Bill Nye the Science guy (momentum). Yes, I still watch BNtSG on Saturday mornings...

A german Documentary called MACHT FLIPPERN FREI from 1973.
Lots of machines can be seen.
Both Operators and Players are getting bashed in a bad way. The worst point of this Film is the narrating voice, an awful cynical woman which sounds like a female Prison-Director.
German Operators stood up against this and it became a big Issue.

Anyway, enjoy the nice Pictures.
If the Link doesn't work search for MACHT FLIPPERN FREI DOKUMENTATION 1973 and you will find it immediately.

Here you can see 2 Screenshots

Yesterday my family ate dinner at a local BBQ joint. There was a TV within view of our table tuned to HGTV. A show apparently called "Fixer Upper" was on. I had zero interest (and the lady's ridiculous makeup was frightening), and was eating dinner with the family anyway, so I wasn't watching.

At one point, suddenly, my 6-year-old daughter yelled, "There's 'Sky Kings'!!!"

I glanced up at the TV, and catch a glimpse of a pinball machine (seen only from the side of the cabinet) -- sure enough, it was a Sky Kings alright. We have one (the first machine I owned), so my daughter had recognized the artwork immediately.

From the looks of the scene, it appeared the people were in an antique shop to find stuff to decorate the house they were working on.

It was on 10/17, after 5pm eastern, if anyone wants to do some digging to find this to grab a screenshot. According to HGTV's website, this episode was Season 4 Episode 2 ... there are some clips here (http://www.hgtv.com/shows/fixer-upper/episodes/after-recent-adoption-family-finds-space-to-thrive) but I don't have time right now to watch the clips there to see if that moment is included. I'll try if I can find some time!

The Thing (1982 movie with Kurt Russell) has a Heat Wave in their game room. My kids were watching Rescue Bots and Chase was playing pinball. The documentary of Pearl Jam playing Wrigley field for 3 dates in August 2016, against the backdrop of the Cubs run to the World Series win, Eddie Vedder was being interviewed in a room that had the Chicago Cubs pinball machine in the background.

At around 39min mark Dom DeLuise is playing?? Close encounters. He has 61000 you hear scoring sounds but I see no ball no flipper action he actually is just leaning on machine nowhere near flipper buttons.

If you never saw it Hot Stuff is worth a watch.

Love the music. Wonder why Burt wasn't in this one.

Yes! saw it on "Movies!", They show it every now and then.

#878 3 years ago

I don't think I have ever seen it on regular TV and rarely see it on movie sites. Seems to be a forgotten movie for sure.

I saw it in theater when it came out.

Smokey and the bandit days.

That's the sweet thing about Movies! They show lesser known films a lot of time, most in wide screen (if it's a wide film), many at 1 X 1.78 with few commercials. I'd never heard of Hot stuff until i caught it on Movies! one day. They're available in many markets over the air, and on may cable systems.

Buckaroo and Hurdy Gurdy in the diner scene of Superman 2.

Clark Kent supposedly teaches the social gadfly a lesson under the guise of bringing peace to the galaxy but in reality to maintain the status quo after being subjected to some inconvenient HOME truths.

The irony being is that old mate Clark has to hide behind his powers to do so.

Which one gets smashed when he throws the bully guy around?

#884 3 years ago

Been a while since I watched it, but I believe the guy gets thrown onto the Buckaroo. I'll have to go back later and check.

Man, the cabinet on that thing looks so nice. Given the year, it was probably NIB.

And it was a Columbia film (Gottlieb was owned by Columbia Pictures at the time).

Hehe. They're messing with people who look closer. The vid is a bird's eye view but also shows a hand with a gun in fps view AND has a gas pedal. The pin has no flippers or start button.

Last episode of Ray Donovan had some great pinball references - no pictures, but they were discussing adding some pinballs to the bar: Adam's Family, Twilight Zone, Ghostbusters even got a mention

#894 3 years ago
Quoted from Darcy:

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.

I saw a pin in the background this week on Bull, anyone know what it is?

A lot of good machines at that...who doesn't want a row with Gorgar, Xenon and BH in there? Awesome.

Oh yes, the austrian scene is astonishing and there is a big sense of 'cohesion' in a sharp contrast to Germany where Pinheads like to bash each other.
