Author Andrew Shaffer joins Sheena and Derek to discuss the tie-in book to this year's Ghostbusters release, Ghosts from Our Past. The book - written from the viewpoint of Erin and Abby - is an integral part of the film's plot and, thus, a huge point of discussion. Andrew talks about what he pulled from to craft the book, what he loves about Ghostbusters in general and what made the recent film a worthy part of the franchise.
After what seems like years of waiting, last week saw the release of Paul Feig's updated Ghostbusters film. With more backlash and controversy than any film in recent history, the movie opened to more than $46 million at the box office and was certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Sheena and Derek saw it three times over opening weekend and feel they are ready to discuss what they loved, what they hated (relax, it was only one little thing) and what kept them coming back for each screening.
Sheena and Derek discuss the highlight of Derek's year, the return of Hi-C Ecto Cooler, as well as recent trailers and ads for Ghostbusters 2016, including a Japanese one that drops while recording. Lots of talk of new merchandise for both the original film as well as the this summer's film included. And a contest to win Ecto Cooler yourself!

Derek and Sheena return to do something we haven't seen anyone do anywhere yet: Review the U.S. and International trailers for the 2016 'Ghostbusters.' Sarcasm aside, the two live-watch both trailers and give their thoughts on both installments, frame by frame. They also discuss the recent backlash from anti-fans of the new film.
