Quoted from PinMonk:

Dadcrush again?

Man, sorry I googled that. I'm not a fan of that daddy issue, barely legal stuff. I have no idea where the gif I referred to came from, but it wasn't that.

Too bad the show ended in 2015. That's when I was getting back into the hobby. In the 90 episodes I bet there's 30 pins to be spotted. The John jukes appearance stands out for me

Knight Rider. Episode 417 "Knight of a Thousand Devils" glimpse of a Stern Flight 2000 at around the 25 minute mark.

I happen to have another one of Flight 2000 (Stern, 1980): The film Terms Of Endearment (1983) has the briefest view of this pin in the hotel lobby's arcade room (only 3-4 film frames; this pic's the most visible one of the game).

OK saw this on TV but was to fast for me to make out the pin. It was again on Diners Drive=Ins and Dives. A little bit of a puzzle to solve if you can. Details below.

Anyone ever notice on the HBO series Entourage that the pins in the house are always different on every episode?

Watched a cheesy 1-hour 2019 REELZ channel 'documentary' about Eddie Murphy's ups and downs, one of those where they hire untalented no-name similar-looking actors to portray the star and the other real people. The fake Eddie is shown playing one of two pinballs in his mansion's game room, couldn't really identify them other than one was maybe a Williams Fire, something like that. But I couldn't find anything about Eddie being into pinball so maybe they just used dramatic license as it was when they were talking about him being lonely and having insomnia. For all I know that game room has been in a dozen other documentaries they made about other troubled celebrities.

Notice the placement of the Gottlieb Logos and the white leg kick on the center left and arm of the female fighter on the right

Yup, first thing I noticed was it was a Gottlieb. Wasn't sure on title tho. Ryu's white leg is dead giveaway

#2431 3 years ago

If you look carefully SFII is against the wall. But he is playing a machine next to it but can't make out what it is.

#2432 3 years ago

I searched, but didn't see this listed. There's an original Star Trek and a Star Trek Next Generation pinball in the special feature of the Star Trek Insurrection Blu-ray. They're interviewing Michael Westmore, makeup artist, and he has both in his home. It's at the 9:11 mark of the special feature and lasts 20 seconds. He claims he helped design the TNG machine, and that it's "state of the art with all the bells and whistles" and "the lots of bells going off as the balls go through." Not sure I believe he's even played it, let alone helped design it, but there ya go.

...I know that this is just for Movies and TV shows, but around 30 minutes ago I was in my last ball of "Attack From Mars" and in that moment a news reporter was talking about businesses in Downtown and coincidentally it was an Attack From Mars on the screen ... (Some Arcades, a GB and Stranger T.)
By the way... I got a new record too

An interview with a pretty unique band, the Cybernetic Spree, in Toronto had some pins behind the band. Superman, Lost World, Arena and Pinbot are the ones I can identify.
