Therefore I Geek Podcast, Episode 73 Pokémon GO, Frank Cho, and Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters2016

The gang discusses some geek topics of note this week, beginning with the Pokémon GO phenomenon, which threatens to take over the world.  After that, there is a conversation about Frank Cho’s sudden departure from DC Comics.  Finally, none of our heroes really enjoyed Ghostbusters for a variety of reasons:  Tracy hates Kate McKinnon, Dude takes issue with beefcake, dumb Thor, and Andrew makes the excellent point that if Ghostbusters were a baseball game, the cast were essentially t-ball players.

“According to Ivan Reitman and Harold Ramis in the DVD Commentary, in Dan Aykroyd’s original rough draft of the movie, the story was going to take place in the future and that there would be teams of Ghostbusters like there are paramedics and firefighters (thus explaining basing the Ghostbusters HQ in a firehouse). According to Reitman, such a film would cost “at least $300 million in 1984 dollars”. So Harold Ramis was brought in to rewrite the script and bring it into modern times. “
