Not to be a horse's rear, but I encourage everyone to please utilize both the search function and the key post function to verify you are posting a new find and not something that has already been presented. The one exception I make is if the original post does not contain photos and you are able to add them.

LOL... Already?

Yeah pinbal2020, I think you should post a reminder about duplicates every month. It does occur often and your efforts are much appreciated.

I'm sorry, won't happen again...
Weird thing was that I only saw first page before posting, no other pages. Same with that Index, didn't show before posting.
After posting my message I could see all 93 pages and the topic index...

Season 6 of Justified—FT in the Pizza Portal. Also a couple of old home-edition pins (like Star Explorer) in five bar back offices.

#4607 78 days ago

LOL. Give it a few seconds and refresh in case there are problems with Internet connections. Don't worry about it. It's only pinball.

Okay, this is to the point that I’m wondering if posters are doing this on purpose.

Finished off my All in the Family run a while back. The various pins at Kelsey's have been gone over many times. Decided to continue on with Archie Bunker's Place next. The pinball doesn't rotate out anymore - at least not through the first 2.5 seasons or so. Same Gottlieb Neptune/Hit the Deck that made an appearance towards the end of All in the Family.

But S03E14 - "Reggie 3, Archie 0" has something a bit different.

The Reggie in question is Reggie Jackson. One of Archie's employees hit Reggie's Rolls Royce with Archie's truck. Typical chaos ensues as Reggie tries to collect the (gasp) $3k in damages from the uninsured Archie.

One scene opens in Reggie's penthouse where he's playing a Chicago Coin "Big League" pitch and bat with his lawyer.

Reggie of course hits a home run, and despite being from 1975, the game makes some Atari 2600-esque electronic cheering sounds.

edit - huh. Actually reading the IPDB listing, it IS a solid state machine. The audio was absolutely added in though.

Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives S18 E11 "Tennessee Holiday Traditions"

Mexico pin
Some other quick glimpses in the segment but this was the best snapshot.

Quoted from Grayman_EM:

OK no picture but I can tell you where and thought it odd that they had a pinball there.
Diners Drive-Ins and Dives (Triple D)
Season 18 Titled: Tennessee Traditions
The place was the third one I think and had a Mexico pin.

Quoted from Grayman_EM:

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.

Thanks! I knew I recognized it, but it went by so fast as I was working in the garage and the online stream I took that screenshot from was kinda blurry.

Does this video game look familiar as well?

Wow, I've only seen one of those. Very early SNK game licensed by Rock-ola in 1981. The music in the game has similarities to Vanguard, an some early digitized speech.

#4623 74 days ago

No. it wasn't that movie. Perhaps Jaws? Or even Stakeout?

But if you've got pay per view, I also saw one in the Humphrey Bogart movie Black Legion. Perhaps you can help me out with that title.

#4624 74 days ago

Oh okay - the one above with Dreyfuss is Duddy Kravitz. Added to keypost.

No, thank you.

That was some movie there eh?

#4629 74 days ago

My pleasure, o-din. Yeah, from looking at the opening credits and not knowing what I was getting into it was nuts. I was entertained.

For anybody who wants to know what Black Legion is, the story is the fictionalized telling of the real Black Legion white vigilante group and Michigan murders.

A working class guy, Humphrey Bogart, joins the Black Legion because foreigners are threatening his job. It shows all the personalities from families and loved ones, victims, Black Legion "foot soldiers", "generals" and what goes on in their heads. It is pretty trippy for 1937. Movie is also only 88 minutes long. Press photo below.
