    30 episodes of nostalgia... you won't get this from Cartoon Network... they're too busy prepping for the PGA/CN crossover.

    Lemme show you the power of the Real Ghostbusters... this DVD set got my brothers off COD4: Modern Warfare and Gears of War 2...

    I JUST picked it up about an hour ago. I was really crazy about the series when I was a kid. Up there with Transformers, GI Joe, and TMNT.

    I know, for me too. My childhood was filled with, "Roll Out!" - "Cowabunga!" - "SLIMER!!" - "Yo Joe!" - "Switch to battloid mode!" - "Power Extreme!", etc...

    The problem is how to fit my favourite 15 into a list of only 5. :)

    I ordered the entire boxset direct from Timelife back in November and when I got that little firehouse in the mail I was psyched. I damn-near watched every episode from start to finish. One of my favorite cartoons and the series has been handled very well in it's DVD debut. A lot of features and extras, great packaging and the cartoon's never looked cleaner. I hope the new Transformers and G.I.Joe boxsets due in a couple of weeks are as good as these.

    Did this just come out on DVD or has it been out for awhile?

    Is this season 1? Or just the collection of episodes?

    I want that firehouse set but its damn expensive.

    The complete collection is also back out on DVD. Saw the other night at WalMart. Can't recall the price, didn't really care as I already have the firehouse set.

    The first two seasons are pretty good, the ones after are okay.
    They had to change things due to parent groups saying it was too violent and scary.
    They played the scares and horror element more in the first two seasons.
    When Jeanine has glasses like this
    [​IMG]
    it's the seasons where they weren't censored as much
    When her glasses go all round and they start changing her hair, the censors start limiting them more each season, and it starts getting sillier, they also start cutting the animation budget.
    [​IMG]
    When they rename it
    Slimer and the Real Ghostbusters it's usually more silly than serious
    [​IMG]
    They also start playing around with the voice cast and I believe there were some actor changes.

    I remember Extreme Ghostbusters not being terrible either.

    That's mostly because Lorenzo Music died and they pissed Arsenio Hall off... if the commentary is to be believed. But you got Dave Coulier who, for better or worse, played Venkman off as more of the Bill Murray character and Buster [Blaster] Jones who wasn't terrible as Zeddemore. I think Laura Summer may've walked for "personal reasons".

    It was the "Slimer" parts of the show that kinda ruined it for me... especially rewatching the DVDs.

    But again, Extreme Ghostbusters seems to ring in my mind as taking the series back to a darker tone... And probably should have been the focus of the live action... "reboot" of the franchise.

    I think the title. Anything that needs to advertise itself as some variation of the "extreme" probably loses points immediately without further investigation.

    Yeah it was the 90's they had a habit of putting "extreme" on shows that turned out not be all that extreme. Then the commercials and marketing often made it out to be something it wasn't. Turning off many viewers before they even saw it.
    Based on the commercials back then many people didn't even know Egon and Jeanie were in it.



    Yeah I never made it past the opening for that back in the day. Saw the opening, and as an old school G.I. Joe fan it was an immediate... nope I have no interest in this.

    Most people had that opinion

    Most of the actors stayed the same. The original Voice for Peter was Lorenzo Music(that is his real last name, Garfield fame) and Laura summer was Janine. The actors that replaced them were Dave Collier(fullhouse) and Kath Soucie.

    Yeah the Slimer shorts were terrible. I will agree to that.
