Trivia

The central motif of the series soundtrack mimics the "Doppler Effect" (a high pitch transitioning to a low pitch), perhaps alluding to the centrality of the Doppler family to the story. See more »

Goofs

The police car used by Egon in 1953 is actually a model from a much later year as evidenced by the large rear window. A 1953 beetle had a small oval window in the back. See more »

Memorize the characters' names!
15 June 2019 | by gmzylmzcnSee all my reviews

I highly recommend this tv series. I don't want to compare it to any other tv series but it reminded me of Twin Peaks in terms of its darkness. Each episode raises audiences' suspense, which is a good thing. However, you should note every character's name on a paper, prepare a family tree otherwise it will be harder to remember. Great show!!
