Happened to recently saw the series, the one in that episode was a Firepower.

There was another where Janeway was talking about her ancestors during the 1990s, and there was another pinball table in the flash back bar scenes. Couldn't make out what that was.

In the episode with the suicidal Q (best Voyager episode), there's a pinball machine called 'Q Continuum' in Janeway's interpretation of the Q Continuum. It's a re-themed Firepower, possibly the same one that was used unmodified in Future's End.

I know pinball on The Simpsons has already been mentioned, but I've been watching the series regularly on FXX recently, and there are a ton of pinball references in it. I wish someone would put up a compilation of all of them on YouTube.

Edit:

latest


I forgot the 'Galaxy' part.

I have that episode on DVD. It's the episode "The Conspirators" from Season 7 of Columbo.

The murderer has 3 machines.

I don't know which one the one in the background is. The other 2 show their titles and Columbo and Devrin are playing them.

Here are some pictures:

By the way it's a great episode, not only because of the pinball ;)
Here's the scene. "The Conspirators" was the last episode of the original run of 70s Columbo.

9-1-1 features a custom pin called "First Responder" that seems to be a mix of EM and modern day - traditional bell and chines with sounds and DMD of a modern. You don't see a full view of the playfield, just the flipper area and the cabinet.

What about TV commercials? There's a drug ad running non-stop during the morning news that prominently features a guy and his buddies playing Pinbot.

Lodge 49 (a great show!) has an old electro mechanical Aztec machine by Williams that gets played on most episodes. There is another machine that is next to it that is broken, and the top of the machine is covered in a black plastic bag.

Also, on this season of Better Call Saul (on right before Lodge 49), there is a new Stern machine that is used in the compound where all the German workers are secretly building the new lab, I haven't been able to ID it, but I think it is The Walking Dead, which is funny, because that show is on AMC as well.

The thing I hate is that whenever someone plays a pinball machine, they always dub in generic pinball sounds.

It’s The Getaway HS2 on Better Call Saul.

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

How did you like the movie?

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?
