The tag "Spook Central" was used by Ray Stanz in the first Ghostbusters film in reference to Dana Barrett's apartment. ("Your girlfriend lives in the corner penthouse of Spook Central.") See more »

One of the coolest shows of the 1980s!
17 June 2002 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching the Real Ghostbusters, and I gotta tell ya, it blew my mind. The voice acting was great, the stories were very original and the effects were incredible. What made the stories great was that the writers didn't insult the intelligence of the audience and presented it like the movie did when dealing with scientific problems. But what interested me were the episodes written by Michael Reaves, the man responsible for the two Bogeyman episodes. What I still don't know is what gave him the idea to not only reveal the reason why Egon wanted to be a Ghostbuster and why he didn't make the Bogeyman a ghost. Pure genius. Too bad he didn't write a Bogeyman episode for the Extreme Ghostbusters, but I guess that's my job. Well, till next time.
