TPToA Podcast 250 – Ghostbusters Afterlife

This selenium mine has hit a vein of pure nostalgia!
Sometimes being a beat for beat re-make of the original film feels cheap and lazy... sometimes it scratches a nostalgic itch that nothing else can come close to. Take a guess which one this is.

McEknna Grace is a marvel and she carries the film on her tiny shoulders with ease.
The locations and anachronistic feel of the story makes it feel oddly timeless
The nostalgia mine digs deep, but this vein hasn't run dry yet.
Ok, so she's a dog...
Some of the repeated situations felt a bit like lazy writing
BIG plot points get abandoned almost entirely in the last act.
The Chomper ghost was way too on the nose as a Slimer analogue.
Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night?
Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic?
Have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre or ghost?

If the answer is “yes,” then don’t wait another minute. Download this podcast and call the professionals… US!

Thanks to Sony, back in December the whole TPToA team caught a press screening of Ghostbusters Afterlife and have been champing at the bit to talk about it ever since!

Does this continuation of the franchise from the ’80s work as well in 2021? Do we still want to see ghosts being busted? Does the nostalgia train run off the tracks and into a slime filled tunnel of evil goo? Only this podcast will give you the answers you need.

Our 4 stream-crossing badasses are Dion, Peta, Jill and Quinny, though we’re almost certain one of them may be a ghost in disguise. Listen in to work out who it may be….

From beyond the grave of 2021 now in the grey afterlife of 2022 we wish to say a huge thank you to all our Ghostbustin’ buddies who help us to clean up the town in the Twitch stream, each Tuesday night at 7:30pm AEDT! And an even more special thank you to those of you that have chosen to invest in our Ghost-busting franchise; your ongoing support of us in our endeavours is hugely appreciated! As we all know: “No job is too big, and no fee is too big”, so dropping coin directly via our Ko-Fi jar and now also by subscribing to our supernaturally charged channel on Twitch is a godsend to us!

If you like what we do, empty a ghost trap and drop us a sub!  Every bit of your support helps us to (hopefully) keep the containment grid running long enough to keep you all safe! 

Don’t fret if you can’t be there for the live recording though as you can catch them on Youtube usually later that very night. Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss them!
