Episode 9 Synopsis - 009: Ghostbusters
(Originally recorded on July 19, 2016)
Geeksquatch ain’t afraid to tackle one of the biggests action comedies of all time: Ghostbusters! The 1984 classic, created by the genius of Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, proved that “ghost janitors in New York” was more than just a brilliant movie pitch.
Colin hosts as the gang covers everything from the cast and production to little known facts about the film. Many major SNL and SCTV cast members were part of the original vision, but didn’t make it to the big screen for various reasons. You’ll never guess who was supposed to be in the Rick Moranis role.
Cryptogeekology gets a few new categories and even a few correct answers. Jamie either made the questions a little easier or the guys are getting smarter. Most likely the former.
