The Angels Take Manhattan
Directed by Nick Hurran
The episode jumps between 1938 and 2012 Manhattan – in 1938, detective Sam Garner is asked to investigate a mysterious apartment house “where the angels live”, only to meet…himself, years older.

Greetings – Dr. Egon Spengler here, former Ghostbuster and current researcher of families’ reactions to various puppy-related emotional situations. While I’m waiting for Dr. Peter Venkman to end his bizarre holdout so we can get back to – as it has become known colloquially – ‘busting’ ghosts and other phantasms, I would like to take a brief moment of your time to comment on a controversial current-events issue: The ongoing backlash against the substance known as “Pink Slime.” Pink Slime has come under fire from a number of different sources recently, with even the megachain McDonald’s publicly denouncing it, and while I humbly sympathize with peoples’ natural aversion to this magical ghost-ooze, I feel the need to clarify a number of misconceptions about this substance. I’ve experimented extensively with Pink Slime, with some of my research being recorded in the documentary Ghostbusters 2, and consider myself nothing short of an »
