I've officially watched my first episode of EGB-- it's way better than I was anticipating! I loved the scenes in the firehouse. In a way, some of the designs look better than RGB.

Bring on part 2.
What? You haven’t seen EGB? Oh man. You’re so lucky, I wish I could experience it for the first time again. If you don’t wanna wait for the official Youtube upload, the guy who runs Spookcentral website put all 40 episodes up to stream or download. Good quality too.

Here are the best episodes in my opinion:
Deadliners(legit terrifying),
Back in the Saddle Parts 1 & 2,
Grundeleque(a sequel to an RGB episode),
Darkness at Noon Parts 1 & 2,
Kill Joys
Home is Where the Horror Is
Slimer’s Sacrifice

Can you do me a personal favour? If you decide to stick with the show and watch some of these episodes, come back & let us know what you think.

Personally? I think EGB is better than RGB. It’s far darker & scarier but the animation quality is lacking. It’s a really underrated show.

Oh Extreme Ghostbusters is an interesting experience. Like Richardless said I feel the show is a bit underrated. I have definately come to appreciate it even more as time goes on. It was an interesting journey for me, because originally I wasn't terribly fond of the show because I wasn't ready for a new team of Ghostbusters LOL! However it really didn't take me too long to embrace the new characters. I got to appreciate the the new status quo, the young crew would go out on calls and Egon would keep in touch via radio and give them guidence and be mentor to them. It made it that much more special when Egon would occasionally strap on a proton pack and help the new crew.

I enjoyed the new dynamic, but I really didn't follow the show weekly like I did with The Real Ghostbusters. However when I saw the episode Sonic Youth, that is when I really started to look at the show and really come to love it. This episode was a perfect storm for me. The story was great, there was some great dark themes that were never really seen in The Real Ghostbusters and to top it off the containment gets breached and Egon has to help bust some ghosts. I was never fond of the way the new equupment looked, however I thought it looked great when Egon dawned it. LOL! I guess my love for members of the original crew is just hardwired into me.

After that episode I tuned in religously in the hopes that would happen again and the show did not disappoint. Hell infact it got better as it progressed. I have to say if there had to be a finale to the series Back in the Saddle parts 1 and 2 pulled it off.

I find it very funny that this show actually pre dates Batman Beyond by a year. :):):)


For obvious reasons this is my list of recommended episodes

Darkness At Noon 1 & 2
Sonic Youth
Ghost Apocolyptic Future
Ghostmakers
Slimers Sacrifice
Grundlesque
The Crawler
Killjoys
Casting the Runes
Fallout
Till Death Do Us Part
Glutton For Punishment
Heart Of Darkness
A Temporary Insanity
The Sphinx
Back in the Saddle 1 & 2

I wouldn’t go that far. The Jersey Devil episode isn’t very good.

One thing that annoys with EGB is the nighttime look. Almost half of the 2nd part of Darkness @ Noon has that blue no colour nighttime look and it just...I don’t like it. The animation is so bad on some parts. Whenever the proton packs are used...man. But the writing & characters & atmosphere more than make up for the flaws

I can see what they're aiming for. Next time you're in a room, or outdoors and the lighting's real low and there aren't any artificial lights on, things will look a lot more black and white than full colour... Depending on how advanced the evening is you might see a bluish tinge.


The colouring of the night-time shots doesn't bother me, though I do have to wonder why New York appears to be plunged into near total darkness during most of the nighttime sequences in XGB.
Was the city devoid of working street lights, signs or ambient illuminations in 1997? :P

Oh I totally get what they are trying to do but it just doesn’t look right. I’m pretty sure it might’ve been a cost saving kind of thing too. Almost half of an episode is lit like that. I’ve always been surprised that other shows didn’t copy what Batman The Animated Series did, which is use black paper rather than white. It helped with the night time sequences. That show has such a beautiful aesthetic to it. Since most of EGB takes place at night, I wonder why they didn’t try something like that.

This is off topic but right at the exact moment I read this comment the show I was watching, Futurama(episode “I, Roommate”) made a joke about New Jersey. Seriously. What are the odds of that?(probably not as low as one might expect given the constant New Jersey jokes in pop culture). It always weirds me out when things like that happen. Out of all the show & episodes I watched, I happened to land on one that had a joke at New Jersey’s expense right as I’m reading a comment about someone referencing another show making New Jersey jokes. Weird.
