    There's a Stern Meteor prominently featured in one scene of the Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody.

    There is a "Back To The Future" pin featured on the new "Halloween" movie. (The new reboot of the sequel... I think)

    It's decent, worth watching if you're a Queen fan. I thought it glossed over the AIDS issue a little too easily. And it messes with the timeline a bit, to allow for more dramatic effect. Apparently the BluRay/DVD will have an extended version of the Live Aid set, done shot-for-shot/note-for-note (in the theater release it's missing a couple of songs from the set).

    My wife's watching SVU on Hulu and the corpse of the week is being loaded on a gurney right in front of a Sharkey's Shootout.

    On this week's episode of the Flash, there was a very prominent Flight 2000 and another one I had never seen before: Astromancer or something?

    The Flash episode had Gamatron which interestingly was a conversion kit to update Flight 2000.

    I just noticed this one in the old film Mikey and Nickey. The image is too blurry to make out the name of the table:

    Was that Supra car ad during the Super Bowl supposed to be the guy driving around a pinball machine (but not running/bumping into anything)?

    I just rewatched the entire series during the month of January, so of course I saw those! They were Revenge From Mars and Hurricane during present time, and during one of the time jumps I believe it was Comet and no second machine.

    In Captain Marvel there is a Space Invaders pin that sees use in more ways than one.

    Also a cool Street Fighter 2 arcade cab in the bar scene.

    Darn, beat me to it!

    But a couple of things:
    - not the original backglass, I assume for legal reasons?
    - someone was proud of their high score of 962K, and having watched someone darn near roll the table (999,990 is the max) I concur, that's decent!
    - pretty sure that's a slam tilt, how it gets used in the movie!

    So far, I've seen pinball machines in two episodes of Gomer Pyle USMC. In "Gomer and the Dragon Lady" from 1964, there's a pinball called Tropics by United. In a later episode called "Dynamite Diner" from 1969, there's the pinball machine Central Park by Gottlieb. I immediately recognized that one as it's also included in Farsight's The Pinball Arcade.

    There was an ST:TNG in a university bar where I pretty much think every tilt sensor was broken. I think it might've survived that treatment intact without a tilt. Dude might've just been trying an aggressive ball-save.

    Big Bang Theory season 12 episode 11 (The Paintball Scattering) has one in the comic shop. Haven't noticed it in earlier episodes and haven't watched the following episodes yet.

    Also, the writer certainly hates Donald Trump - all sorts of things on the vanity cards at the end, called him Gangster in Chief on this one.

    I think it’s a wood rail from the 1950’s called Rocket. I’ve noticed it in several episodes. But it’s kind of hard to get a good look as it’s tucked back in that corner of the comic shop.
