Did anyone get a screenshot of the Four Square on last night’s Goldberg’s (S8 E19).

Not an actual pinball machine but a pinball machine inspired competition on Big Brother Canada. (Season 9 episode 25)

Awesome. Why did you stop trying? Often times if you're not picked for one season, it helps you get picked for a future season.

And as long as you recognize your own mother in a Wendy's takeout uniform you should be golden for BBCAN.

Life. too busy with the family. Pretty much nukes 4+ months of your life. Timing is everything I guess. AND i'm getting older and older, better step up soon again if i'm going to!

You've got time. BBCAN really needs a Jerry, anyway.

But you need to keep trying!

This was an interesting find; I was watching a vintage 1967 Championship Bowling film print on YouTube that still had its original commercials, and up comes this pinball-themed Schaefer beer commercial featuring a re-themed Double Action (Gottlieb, 1958) that "plays music" (that I'm assuming was Schaefer's jingle at the time).

Here's the commercial clip itself (the brief close-up of the flippers at the 38:14 mark gives away the actual game) ...

I had mentioned the 1987 movie Lost Boys before, but here’s a view of the Paragon in one of the scenes on the far right of screen. There is also a Phoenix in another clip and I believe a Star Trek.

It was a surprise to see this while I was sitting next to my Williams Post Time which has the same design on the cab... from MST3K 509 The Girl in Lovers Lane.

The Liquidator sells a Funhouse. I don't have the episode index so I don't know what specific episode it is.

But here's a video of the transaction. The price made my jaw drop. (In Canadian $$ to boot!)

You forgot to mention the Haunted House next to it.

There's an episode where he sells the Haunted House. I'll snap a video next time I catch it.

There's a episode where John from John's Jukes comes down and buys it. I want to say it was $1800 back in 2014 or so but been a few years since I've watched the show.

Quoted from N101AA:

What is this pin? It was in the background of a scene from "The Giant Spider Invasion" (1978) on tonight's Rifftrax. I can't find a higher res photo, but here is a capture from the original MST3K broadcast:
[quoted image]

Did this ever get answered? I’m watching this movie, saw the pin, checked this thread and found this post from about a year back, but I don’t see a reply. It’s a Bally Dixieland (1968).

Edit: it did get answered by o-din. Never mind!

Been watching All in the Family old tv show at night when going to bed, there is a pin in the bar he goes to all the time but did not get a picture if anyone knows it

Guess I posted a pic 4 years ago but did not name the pin

The pin at Kelsey's changes a lot over the years. Kinda cool - like a real life operator running a route in Archie's neighborhood.

They've been mentioned a few times. He also added a Pro Football a couple years back when the show moved into the new mancave.

I really need to get VPN or some other ip blocker so I can watch Peacock. Just not the same on the radio and you miss the live lookins during breaks.

Dan Patrick real asshole in person and hates hockey which boils me, met and waited on many times just saying for the record

I find him funny in any Adam Sandler movie he gets hired for....but the only reason I was listening was because Norm MacDonald was on. Funniest and most cerebral comedian out there!

I'm not a big fan of podcasts anyways.

#2935 26 days ago

Here's a unique one... because it's not TV or a movie, but a preshow for a theme park ride. This is from Busch Gardens Tampa for their old simulator ride. Martin Short and Eugene Levy as the main characters, and in one scene you can see a Cleopatra in the background.Cleo (resized).jpg

In Keeping up with the Joneses, he has a HyperBall in his basement. Seen in the corner near the end of the movie.

Not a FP2. Hyperball for the win.

I don't have a picture at the moment (just discovered this thread now) but saw a Rocky & Bullwinkle and Friends in the background (it stuck out a bit in the scene) during this season's finale of Handmaid's Tale. I pointed it out to my wife while we were watching and she replied, "How do you notice these things?"
Just well-trained eyes I suppose...
