I might watch something like this for an episode, but that's about it. I don't see how it helps pinball though. I didn't see much focus at all about playing. I saw a little restoring, promotion, lots of drinking, and people throwing money around. There were quick flashes of people playing, but that was it. Sure the business aspect is part of pinball, but I don't think focusing on that promotes pinball as something fun to be a part of.
The fun of pinball to me starts with the the actual games. Real world physics gives me something new every time I play. I have a thread where I played ten games in a row and recorded my scores, and there's no consistency, same for pretty much everyone else who participated. You just don't get that with video games.
Then there's the fun of joining a local league. I've met a lot of good people in my league and even though I'm not good enough to be in A division, I'm treated as an equal. We're all friends and some of us host pinball get togethers that we're all welcome to go to.
Then there's tournaments where you can win some cash, but overall the competition is the fun part and the partying in between.
On the collection side, it's fun buying a machine and fixing it up to working condition. Adding LED's and other mods to put your signature on it. It's just fun owning a machine to PLAY because that's kind of the point. And it's fun going to pinball shows where local collectors bring their machines for free play to share with the community. We get to see some rare tables you just won't see out in the wild anymore.
I don't think a reality show based on the pinball aspects we'd want to see promoted would do well, that's not what the public wants. They want drama, they want to see the next goldmine where they think they can get rich quick.
