This past Friday I wrote my review (Ecto-Containment Blog Post: February 17, 2017) for the  Extreme Ghostbusters episode, Back In The Saddle Pt. 1. I actually began reviewing Back In The Saddle Pt. 2 on the same day. Without the ability to jump into earlier time zones, I would have to get back to it. Today I spent a lot of it reviewing and preparing the screen caps for Ecto-Containment. After what… Read More

Recently I was beginning to get around to a site update for Ghostbusters International. In my mind it made sense to do “this” before “that.” The first of a few Ghostbusters reviews for the sites is an Extreme Ghostbusters review. As a ghosthead since 1984 and growing up with The Real Ghostbusters arguably the best episodes of Extreme Ghostbusters were when the original/Real Ghostbusters got together for a party. Along with somewhat unexpected,… Read More

Personal events during recent Septembers had me feeling like it would have been too personal to review The Real Ghostbusters first season episode, Slimer, Come Home. After re-watching episode 4 yesterday and being reminded its a children’s cartoon, it might have been okay. I didn’t plan it this way last week, by reviewing Troll Bridge, then coming back to Slimer, Come Home I reviewed an episode 30 years later from its original air… Read More

Six years ago next week became one of the hardest and saddest times in my life. Last year in this week a different hard and sad time in my life began. This year with The Real Ghostbusters 30th anniversary at times would like to watch and review episodes in order. That episode this time around would have been Slimer, Come Home. In my head it felt like it’d be sad for me,… Read More

30 years ago today The Real Ghostbusters aired to the delight of ghostheads. Episode 1, the infamous Ghosts ‘ R Us is somewhat of a origin story and in 21 minutes explains why they’re The Real Ghostbusters! For 7 seasons our animated Ghostbustin’ heroes went on adventures (along with originally that green guy) 6 days a week. The guys couldn’t do it alone. Janine not only ran the office, (equipment not standard at other… Read More

This week officially marked the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. The iconic science fiction show was entering adulthood when The Real Ghostbusters was still in its infancy. Thirty years later, The Real Ghostbusters is pretty much as beloved as Star Trek. On November 17, 1987 episode 24, Ain’t NASA-sarily So aired. Written by Craig Miller and Mark Nelson, it directly referenced Star Trek in fun ways. Unless you were already a Trekkie/Trekker or knew someone… Read More

Before Ghostbusters (2016) US release date I thought for fun and a “wink and nod” kind of thing I would review a The Real Ghostbusters episode that could relate to this new Ghostbusters movie. Part of that thinking would have honored an animated Janine who was a Real Ghostbuster when she needed to be. I also thought to review Copycat because of its title and a part where the ghost copies the… Read More

Last week I couldn’t write a review for THE follow up episode to GHOSTBUSTERS II. Which was a bit of a bummer. After writing a review for Something’s Going Around (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, June 19, 2016) I was a little conflicted. Ghostbusters II will always be special to me. Not just because of the movie. It was the experience, and because of who I saw it with in theaters…on Friday, November 3, 1989. I… Read More

It’s still the 27 anniversary of Ghostbusters II. If you lived in most of the United States in June 1989 you either did or had a chance to see Ghostbusters II in theaters. I’ve told this story a handful of times. For whatever reason Ghostbusters II didn’t premiere in my smaller geographic area of New Jersey until the first week of November 1989. Yes, its possible it had its US premiere same… Read More

With two of 2016 major superhero blockbusters at theaters back in March (when this episode review would have been a little more current) and right now with a different captain. Along with another Free Comic Book Day in a bag I knew this had to be the week to watch and review The Real Ghostbusters second season episode, Captain Steel Saves The Day. Through paranormal means, Ray’s favorite comic book character, Captain Steel,… Read More

I had been wanting to review a new episode of The Real Ghostbusters. After seeing Sony’s Crackle site (Ecto-Containment Blog Post, October 21, 2015) had episodes from season 1 to stream, it provided a bit of motivation. Most likely because of a call back to Ghostbusters that episode with Walter Peck came to mind. Season 3, Episode 11, Big Trouble With Little Slimer is the only episode of The Real Ghostbusters to follow up with… Read More
