This week on the show, it's the calm before the storm. This weekend is the International Toy Fair in New York, plus a whole bunch of news is on the horizon. So Troy and Chris take this opportunity to talk nerdy about Dana Barrett's apartment and how it may have fared after the interdimensional crossrip that occurred there. Are you legal required to tell a potential tenant that a building had a 50-foot marshmallow man climb it and two of its previous occupants were possessed by demonic dogs?

In celebration of today being what would have been Harold Ramis' 72nd birthday, we're airing one of Troy's favorite lectures that Harold gave at the Chicago Humanities Festival in 2009. It was a response to the AFI list of the 100 greatest comedies of all-time and is Ramis talking about his favorite comedic films of all-time (plus a little bit of Q&A with the audience). It's a great listen for fans of film, and a very introspective look inside the mind of one of the most incredible comedic voices of our time. For more about the Chicago Humanities Festival visit their website: chicagohumanities.org
It's a bit of a light week in Ghostbusters world because of all that other news currently dominating most folks' attention (is it just us, or is Ghostbusters II starting to feel like a documentary?), but that's not going to stop Chris and Troy from chatting Ghostbusters and there's still plenty to talk about including that Bernie Wrightson concept art, the Titan vinyl figures, some more cool Japanese merch, the Ghostbusters of BC doing a little charity fundraising, and yes - even some Extreme Ghostbusters chat. So come take a break from the tension for a bit and spend an hour with the Ghostheads, eh?

We're cutting into the feed to give you a bonus episode with a commentary to be played under the film with three members of the Ghostbusters of British Columbia.

This week on the Crossrip, we're catching up on news including the DVD/Blu-ray release of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call and more! There's a lot of marketing and merchandising surrounding the home video release and Troy and Chris break down the press appearances and special events that are on the docket including an appearance by Ray Parker Jr. and Paul Feig on the TODAY Show. The LEGO Dimensions expansion pack is out and the boys talk a little about a surprise cameo that has everyone talking, and that leads to a little conversation about the 2009 Ghostbusters: The Video Game. Ernie Hudson is hitting Oklahoma for Halloween. Lots of merch coming out including Ghostbusters International #9, Diamond Select Wave 4 action figures, and a whole lot more.

Have you picked up Ghostbusters: Answer the Call on digital release? Have you made it through the hours and hours of bonus features and still want more? Don't worry, we've got you covered! Even though there are two fantastic filmmaker commentaries on the extended cut of the film, we've got sort of a "pseudo-commentary" of sorts for you. This isn't scene specific, but Troy and Chris talk about the additions and the changes in the extended cut, as well as what the two hours of deleted and alternate scenes have revealed with the release. And while it's not a proper, in-sync, scene-specific, it does match up to the film Dark Side of the Moon style if you start the episode around the same time as the podcast!
