I used to give Extreme Ghostbusters a lot of flak. The art style is too gothic, the new technology is too unfamiliar, and the characters are an obvious attempt to be politically correct. I mean, their heart is in the right place, but a Puerto Rican Ghostbuster, a Goth girl, a nerdy African American AND a paraplegic? That's a bit much.
But after recently watching a couple of episodes, my criticisms have softened. It's obvious that the show writers have a lot of respect for the original Ghostbusters series, beit through the reappearance of old storylines or references to old characters. Nowhere is this more evident than in the two episode special "Back in the Saddle" which reunites the now aged original Ghostbusters. I love the details, from the updated character designs, the use of the old proton packs, to the return of the original voice actors. The episode is worth a peek for any self-proclaimed Ghostbusters fan, not to mention it likely shares a lot in common with the forthcoming Ghostbusters 3 movie.
