I think some thought went into this scene since the pinball backglass shows a lady touching a sad clown and that parallels the plot in the episode. But on TV nobody would have seen this detail! Here is an CGI enhancement of the scene.

Damn. Haven't seen that movie in years. Rock rock rock rock rock in roll high school. I don't give a damn about history...

How it might have (sorta) looked without the obstruction. Perhaps they realized the image would be too busy if they didn't cover it. And only realized it after they set up the scene for filming. Here is a modified image.

Can't believe this one slipped past us this long: There's a Firepower and a perennially out of order Pinbot at the grocery store in the 2010 sitcom Raising Hope. They are visible almost every episode, this shot is S1E8. I'm still working on season one, and will report back if they change or Pinbot gets fixed!

PXL_20220418_191810831 (resized).jpgPXL_20220418_191810831 (resized).jpg

Welp, I just searched and they have been mentioned, just never made it into the keypost list.

#3515 1 year ago

music video not a show but this one has a LOT of games in the background

You're the first post to follow the thread rules and actually post a screenshot. One of the prior posts mentioning it is a perfect demonstration of why video links aren't allowed - the youtube link in that post is broken now.

Screenshots are hosted locally on pinside and will not break when remote content is taken down or moved.

Yours is in the keypost index now.

Post a screenshot and I'll add it to the index. Remote video links are unreliable.

More pins in Raising Hope: here's a Whitewater and a Fish Tales at an arcade in S1E15.

So strange they censor out the Williams logo in Fish tales (or SH_ALES) but left the W alone on Whitewater.

Understandable, we've all been there. Just change your flow from "get excited -> post" to "get excited -> check topic index -> if not there, post"

Once I started posting in this thread my wife now is on the look out too and when she shouts out from the other room "Pinball!" I know she found one. I think she is disappointed if I have to tell her that one has already been posted

Ha! Same thing happens here.

She's bummed when it's already been posted. Too funny.

Wait! in the last picture: Is that an Orbitor 1?!?

Also see a Williams Penny pitch (or Ringer).

A Ringer, a Williams Hot Line, a CC Hollywood, A Williams Palooka.

The Stern I can't say.

Cool, but didja miss how I found different pins in a different episode?

Quoted from DanQverymuch:

I was happy, though, to see they did "fix" the Pinbot, which has traded places with Firepower, as of S1E19! Still pretty dark, though.

This never was uploaded with the Captain Marvel movie from three years ago and thought it might be nice to have in the database. Towards the end of the movie in the Kree science space station used by Mar-vell (the scientist, not Captain Marvel. Captain Marvel is the heroine pictured below. ).

The Stern I can't say.

It's either Orbitor 1 or Dragon Fist. Orbitor 1 has a black cabinet with silver stripe and logo, Dragon fist is Dark Blue with white stripes and logo.
If we could see where the shooter was, it would have been more obvious if it was Orbitor 1 or not.

The "Alien" back-glass isn't original, or has been modified.

That's hilarious. I didn't even notice it until you pointed it out. They made its claw hands into more of crab pincers and playschool'd its face. Weird.

Maybe to foreshadow the flerken in the movie.
And to avoid a lawsuit from owners of Alien license at the time that it was too similar . Had Disney bought Fox out yet? That was 2019 when the merger took place. Captain Marvel just was coming out in 2019 so filmed prior to Disney owning the Alien assets or whatever they own/license from the purchase.

Caught an episode of Kolchack: The Night Stalker on Me TV last night that started in an arcade (episode 6: Firefall).
Several pins and lots of EM games in it:
