The Atari 2600 Guest Stars on Three’s Company

When I watch older TV shows I am always on the lookout for tech treats. Last night I was watching Three’s Company episode “Furley vs. Furley” (original air date 2/17/82) and right at the start of the show we get a healthy dose of 80s gaming culture as Jack and Janet play some mysterious football game (even though their is no cart is the unit) while Mr. Furley attempts to fix a door in the background. It is perfect fake gaming moment complete with fake sound FX and poor joystick holding. It was a real treat so I thought I would share some shots of the episode.

The Competition looks intense

Janet Dominating...

Janet Wins!!

Perfect Gaming Setup, but no cart in the system :P
