Haha I wasn't that far into the episode yet, and just came back here to post about that. I thought that was funny as well. Also, the bad guy putting a quarter down for the next game was pretty classic

I haven't seen anybody do that in years, lol

There's another pin in an earlier episode of daredevil in a bar shot, couldn't tell what it was but looked like an em or ss.

#304 5 years ago

Loved how they had EM sounds playing while the actors were playing Mustang.
I think a lot of the general public probably thinks pins still sound like that today.

Fish Tales spotted in the final season of Justified.

Just saw the movie Star 80 about Dorothy Stratten, the Playboy model that was murdered. Anyway, there is an arcade scene in it where the bad guy is playing Strkes and Spares, and next to that are a Tri Zone as well as Black Knight.

Dont know if anyone is Old or Young enough to remember this, but I always loved this Sesame Street pinball animation. Its from the 60's but they recycled it through the episodes up through the 80's and 90's. Check it out!!!!

#316 5 years ago

"Starter for 10" has a cp in there arcade and it was suppose to be 1985

Not the 60s, mid-70s. It was the Pointer Sisters.

This is from the Donnie and Marie show with Epstein from Welcome Back Kotter and Lorne Greene.

Someone may have mentioned this, but in the movie "They Came Together" Paul Rudd's character has a Williams Olympic Hockey in his apartment.

A lot of these Bar Resue TV shows have pinball machines in them before they redo and talk them out. Noited a Palyboy and South Park on this episode with two rock bar owners

#328 5 years ago

Nor a real pinball, but this was in the second episode of season two of Rick and Morty:

Maybe Mr. MeeSeeks helped him make the hill climb.

... and apparantly unlike Dave and Busters, "Blips and Chitz" HAS pinball!

Nice to see the game name not black out in the movie like it has to be done in today's movies for rights or whatever reason to pay to use the name if show it on tv or movie. Kind of like you never see the beer label of a beer in most movies or type of soda.

#333 5 years ago

Probably mentioned already but just now I'm watching The Thing. Haven't bothered to look of this is a real game or not.

I enjoy the irony of "Heatwave" in The Thing's arctic station and a "Universe" in The Theory of Everything. It's set designers having fun.

Stephen King used a pin in his directorial debut film Maximum Overdrive....a Night Rider in the truck stop game room that plays by itself. Much like Heat Wave in The Thing, Night Rider is the perfect title for a pin to be in a movie that has a truck stop with crazy trucks running wild!

#339 5 years ago
Quoted from OldSchoolBlood:

-2001 Owen Wilson movie called "Behind Enemy Lines" had a T2 very out of place. The game was in the middle of a shootout. If I remember correctly I think it was outside too.

I just re-watched "Behind Enemy Lines" a couple days ago since I haven't seen it in quite some time. I was surprised that about an hour into the movie, T2 makes an appearance.

Most likely the Totem was leased from Johns Jukes in Vancouver B.C.

This might be the next machine from Jersey Jack.

I didn't get the game title. But in Law and Order Criminal Intent: Bombshell (S6,E20) there were girls playing a pin in a playboy mansion type setup. Only Special Victim's Unit on Netflix.

Is Pingeek tracking these or do we have to email them to him? Where is the best database these days?

I just saw a woodrail towards the end of Escape From New York. It's when Brain is rescuing the President.

I forgot how much I loved this show. I think someone posted these already. It's a Black Knight and a Fireball with some serious cabinet mods.
