About a month ago Sony Pictures began to upload weekly episodes of The Real Ghostbusters (Ecto-Containment Page) to their Ghostbusters YouTube account. Partially with Ghostbusters Afterlife (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, January 2, 2020) pushed further ahead to November 11, 2021 it makes sense for Sony to add animated episodes to their official YouTube channel while ghostheads wait.
Sony will release a “new” episode on Saturday mornings. Just like in 1980 something! Depending on how they upload each season, it’ll be around 2028 before all 7 seasons are officially available to watch on-line. By then who knows, Sony could have their own + network. Or have re-re-re-released The Real Ghostbusters completely to a new format.
For any ghosthead who doesn’t have the original Time-Life set or incomplete volume DVD sets, I’m happy generations of ghostheads have the opportunity to enjoy The Real Ghostbusters every week.
As a ghosthead who began this site to be all about The Real Ghostbusters I’ve added a new page to share Sony’s official uploads (currently early in Season 1) of The Real Ghostbusters. I will organize it further as they add new episodes and my schedule allows.
Sony could have only uploaded weekly episodes of The Real Ghostbusters. Some ghosthead suit decided Wednesdays should be extreme! As that’s the day each week Extreme Ghostbusters episodes are also uploaded to Sony’s Ghostbusters YouTube account. Originally way back in 1997 I didn’t know Extreme Ghostbusters existed. Once I could watch, I wasn’t that into the show at 19 years old.
At 40 something I still haven’t seen every episode.
In part so I can watch I’ve also added a second page to share Sony’s official uploads for Extreme Ghostbusters episodes.
