Slowly finishing Rhoda with my wife. Honestly surprising just how far the show fell off the cliff in seasons 3-5. From top 10 ratings to cancelled mid season 3 years later after they divorced the main characters. A lesson in "Don't mess with what's working, dummies."

Anyway - S04e19. Gary takes on Benny as a partner and Benny suggests adding pong and pinball to the clothing store.

What I assume is the same Midway Slugger from earlier in the season, joined by a Bally Monte Carlo. (And a couple old Pong cabs)

Since this was a popoular movie I think it's sad that no one mentioned it before...
BURT REYNOLDS - GATOR from 1976 featuring Chicago Coin's PLAYTIME and Williams POT 'o' GOLD in one bar and an old woodrail in another one.

Mikey and Nicky (1976)
Egg Head (Gottlieb 1961)

Great movie. Can't go wrong with a cast of Peter Falk, John Cassavetes, and Ned Beatty. Free on Tubi currently.

Quoted from Daditude:

New Ford Maverick commercial:[quoted image]

Since no one identified the game in the Maverick commercial in post 3273, I hereby declare it to be Magnotron.

It was either Duotron or Magnotron based on the overhead view, but then they show it from a ground level view for a moment, and you can see the 4-player count in the middle under the robot head.

There’s a Gottlieb Count-Down in the 1987 French horror film ‘Revenge of the Living Dead Girls’. Has this one been mentioned yet?

Despicable Me. Not a real pin, but in Despicable Me, Gru has a Minion themed pin in his lair (Called minion Invaders).

Later, The Minions are carrying The game away and the background sound for Williams Space Shuttle can be heard.

Can’t sleep on Xmas and watching “Bloody New Year” just spotted a Zaccaria “Lucky Fruit.” Interestingly, it’s supposed to take place in a hotel they get trapped in a time warp in 1960, but lucky fruit is from 1975!

Ms. Frizzle built a machine that uses light instead of balls.

They go inside the machine. Lots of meme potential in this episode.

Pinball is very on at the last 15 min of this movie. Great story, I really liked this Artisan movie. I'm told it will be on Amazon prime soon, but still in theaters now. The movie " Licorice Pizza"

MacGruber - S01E02

This is probably some bar in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Lots of pins. Be nice if someone could ID the bar as well as the pins...

I see a Metallica and Circus Voltaire. Could that be an Atlantis on the end?

How is it? Not a Cena fan generally but looks pretty funny from the commercials I've been seeing all day watching NFL.
