Time Life Goes With 'Ghostbusters'2 Aug, 2008 By: John Latchem
The latest series to receive exclusive online DVD distribution from Time Life is the animated The Real Ghostbusters: The Complete Series.
Based on the hit 1984 film, the 1986-88 series chronicles the further adventures of a group of scientists dealing with paranormal activity in New York City. The show used the “Real” label to distinguish itself from a Filmation cartoon that aired at the same time.
Time Life's 25-DVD set includes all 147 episodes of the series, plus more than 12 hours of extras, including unseen footage, 21 on-camera episode commentaries, five documentaries, extended interviews, episode introductions, scripts and art.
The set is available for $179.99 at www.realghostbustersdvd.com. Orders received before Sept. 1 receive a 10% discount. The set is expected to ship starting Nov. 15.
Time Life previously released complete-series sets of “Get Smart” in 2006 and “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” in 2007.
“The Real Ghostbusters” is licensed from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, which previously released compilations of episodes on DVD.
