Trivia

When communicating with the Ghostbusters via the two-way radio in Ecto-1, Janine uses the handle "Spook Central" in reference to the firehouse. (I.E.: "Spook Central calling Ecto-1.") 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 »

To Be A Kid Again!
16 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

I wish I could go back and see this show again as a kid even though I do act like a kid at times. I loved the interaction between Peter Venkman and Slimer. The goofy Ray was always funny for his good ol' boy attitude and Winston and Egon were always there to provide insight. This is one of those series I'm going to one day get on DVD so I can feel like a kid again while eating ice cream all day long.
