We've got the press release on hand to examine all the details and speculate on what some of the games' features may bring.

#405 - "What If Everyone in Ghostbusters II Was Dead?" - February 5, 2018


This week on the show, the boys explore the fan theory presented by a recent article that posits, what if everyone involved in Ghostbusters II was actually dead? Did the events of the first movie kill all of the characters, and what we see unfold on the screen is actually each of the characters having to move through their own personal purgatory? Troy and Chris will converse why it may or may not be that great of a theory to consider!

There have been many Ghostbusters sequels that never came to fruition, but what were some of the iterations of Paul Feig's Answer the Call that didn't materialize?

All that plus the latest news including Playmobil's latest Ghostbusters II offerings that include Playmogram 3D technology, IDW's Crossing Over and Annual on the horizon, updates from the Ghostbusters of North Carolina, sad news about the passing of a fellow fan from the Dallas Fort Worth Ghostbusters, and Troy absolutely gushes about A Futile and Stupid Gesture now available on Netflix.

#345 - "Jailhouse Rock" - November 20, 2017


Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs. And Ghostbusters is one of the most recognized (which should come as no surprise to our listeners). Stay with Troy and Chris for the week as they chat about TMNT/GB Issue #3 (no spoilers), Blitzway's announcement about pricing plans for their 1/6 scale Ghostbusters figures, and remembering the Universal Ghostbusters Spooktacular on the anniversary of its final performance. Could a stage show like it exist in this cynical age? Or is a game-based ride the only way that Ghostbusters can exist in a theme park. We're also announcing the Loot Crate winner at the end of the show. And... so, uh, which one of our listeners is currently incarcerated at the Hall County Jail?

Stranger Things Joyce Sewing Patch.jpg

But first, a few news items that the two knobs weren't able to get to last week including some broad non-spoiler chat about TMNT/Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters making Cinefex Magazine's top monster movie list, and a strange article about an Ecto-1 for sale across the pond. Then, in the second half of the show, Chris and Troy talk about all the Ghostbusters references (and if indeed those patches were available for sale in 1984), the show in general, and what the future may hold for Season Three.

#343 - "Proton Packs and Ghostbusters High" - November 6, 2017

This week on the show, Chris and Troy focus on two discussion topics: Aykroyd's comments on Ghostbusters in high school for Netflix and Anovos announcing a new high-end pack replica. Both announcements elicited equally similar responses, and both aspects of the response are discussed this week on the show. Has Akyroyd lost his mind, or are his outlandish ideas responsible for the property we know and love? Is Anovos in the wrong for announcing a pack replica right on the heels of shipping another kit, or is this something totally different? Tune in for the discussion.

#342 - "More Stranger Things" - October 30, 2017
