The annoying Slimer gets his own show. Why????.
8 July 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I don't know what made the producers think that Slimer was the star of the Real Ghostbusters. Slimer was very annoying and I always hoped the team would bust him and put him in the containment unit. Seriously though, the Real Ghostbusters was already on life support long before this show started. This show was little more than a desperate attempt to keep this franchise going.

Watch the first two seasons(AND ONLY THE FIRST TWO SEASONS!!) of the Real Ghostbusters instead. >
