Comment from: [Member]

Thanks for the kind words, GuyX.

I ripped these from the Monsterland Media Blu-ray, which downsampled them to 720x480 - DVD Standard Definition. The Hulu copies that the Blu-ray was originally sourced from are, I believe, 960x720. I say this based on the one single Hulu-ripped episode that was given to me.

I really can't say if there are any true 1080 copies out there. They could just have been upscaled to 1080. I really don't know. I believe there might be a couple on YouTube in 1080, but again, I can't say if that's the native format or if it's just an upscaling from the Hulu 720 versions.

Wow. You’re doing gods work. I went ahead and ordered the blu ray set from that website. Did you know there are HD versions of this show? It’s true. When the show was on Amazon Prime here in Canada it was in 1080p. It’s also on this CTV Throwback App for free in 1080p...but the app is so crappy it looks wonky.

In response to: Extreme Halloween - Part 29 ("The Sphinx" & "Witchy Woman") + Bonus Feature

Comment from: Sam [Visitor]  

Thanks for the bonus material on PSI Factor! I always loved that show, and it boggles my mind that more ghostheads aren't fans of the series, or perhaps aware of it. It wasn't always the greatest, but some of the episodes are truly fantastic. At times it felt like a more "realistic" version of Ghostbusters, and it really started to cook when they brought Matt Frewer in as case manager.

I've always wanted to see a crossover between Ghostbusters and PSI Factor; it would be the most natural thing in the world. A PSI Factor feature film would also be cool. If I ever meet Dan Aykroyd, I'll pitch it to him.

I don't understand your comment, Ray. Only the movie themselves are shown in theaters. Bonus features, like deleted scenes, are shown on home video. - Paul

This is an older article so maybe I’ll get a response, maybe not. But you state with some authority that GB2 had deleted scenes released in theatres. Can you elaborate on this?

"Drag Me to Hell" is a great film. I never realized that it bears similarities to "Casting the Runes". Thanks for the insight. - Paul

+1 for your comment, Sam. Well said.

Yeah, that angular design was the style of all of the Sony-produced animated shows at the time. MIB, like you said, but also Jumanji, Godzilla, and Jackie Chan Adventures. I think there were one or two others, but I don't remember them. Not my favorite style either, but I've seen worse. At least the main characters themselves were decently designed. Gotta give credit to Fil Barlow for that.

Comment from: Sam [Visitor]  

FUN FACT: The episode "Casting the Runes" appears to be based on the M.R. James short story of the same name, which was adapted into the terrific 1957 horror film, "Night of the Demon," which in turn heavily influenced Sam Raimi's 2009 horror film "Drag Me to Hell."

I recommend watching a double feature of "Extreme Ghostbusters: Casting the Runes" and "Drag Me to Hell." The similarities are quite fun!

In response to: Extreme Halloween - Part 1 ("Darkness At Noon" Parts 1 & 2)

Comment from: Sam [Visitor]

I too have been rewatching the show recently, and much of it does indeed hold up. Some of it, however, is rather laughable. For example, the political correctness is almost offensive by today's standards: the strong empowered goth woman who's too weak to carry a full-sized proton pack (most of the time); the token black guy who's so "white" and nerdy he almost makes Egon look like Malcolm X; and the token disabled person who shows no signs of actually being disabled, apart from sitting in a wheelchair -- when he's not skydiving from skyscrapers, that is!

Also, while I love the darker aesthetic of the show, I never was a fan of the angular character designs, which at times are almost Picasso-like. I realize that was the style of the day (the MIB cartoon looked much the same), but I much prefer the RGB character designs, which ironically were more realistic.

That being said, I still love the show as I did when it first came out. I remember thinking, in the mid-nineties, that the Ghostbusters franchise was basically dead, and nobody seemed to care about Ghostbusters anymore. Without the internet, I was not aware of other ghostheads and felt deeply alienated by the broader popular culture. It was a very sad time. Then they announced EXTREME Ghostbusters, and it was like a gift from God. My friends and I raced home from school to watch it, and it hit the spot like a tall glass of Ecto-Cooler.

It's unfortunate that it only lasted one season, but they did a terrific job of expanding the Ghostbusters universe which was already quite expansive, thanks to several seasons of RGB and two feature films. I commend the show for its boldness and originality, even if it didn't always work out. I daresay they earned the title "Extreme!"

Thanks for keeping the flame alive, Paul. Cheers.

This is awesome. You are doing god’s work good sir. Is it possible for you to provide a downloadable link?

It’s a crime that Sony hasn’t released this series on DVD, Blu Ray, Youtube, ITunes. Whatever. A crime. Those of us not in America that don’t have access to Hulu literally can’t watch this show.

In response to: Hasbro's Ghostbusters Plasma Series: Spengler's Neutrona Wand Review

Comment from: John DiBiase [Visitor]  

Great review! I grabbed it from GameStop myself a couple weeks ago and am really impressed by it. I do have the Matty one and have always loved that one, but this one is more impressive. (Although the power down sound may be better on the Mattel one)

I thought the new modes seemed like video game references, but do you think they may be movie "spoilers" in that the actual movie wand will have multiple modes as well? I kind of assumed that might be the case... Overall, it's a must for GB fans!

Comment from: Adrian [Visitor]  

These are amazing!

I’m working on a motion comic adaptation of original 1980s Real Ghostbusters Comics and these are perfect to give them that authentic feel.

You can check the first couple of episodes on our Facebook page or YouTube. Just search for Real Ghostbusters: The Lost Adventures.

the line in the second song is "Something's in the hall" not "Something's in your heart"

Comment from: Barbara Ann [Visitor]  

The as-yet unidentified teaser trailer theme appears to be influenced structurally from the recently rediscovered Hughes-Thrall one; that is, whoever is responsible for it appears to have been provided listening copies of the top contender, and asked to improve upon it.

Although these all have a "period piece" early-mid '80s transitional sound (short-lived and poorly remembered 1983-1984 window, that sounds somewhat distinct from the rest of the 1980s music scene), I wonder whether this is an Alessi submission?

Or whether Hughes-Thrall are not being completely forthcoming, and the teaser perhaps contains a revised theme submission?

Is anyone else seeing a shipping delay on this? For 2 months they have told me they are waiting on parts from China and I haven’t received my next shipments.
