TechnoRetro Dads

When there’s something strange in the neighborhood, which Ghostbusters are you gonna call?  The latest version of Ghostbusters landed in theaters with controversy stirring up sufficient public intrigue and curiosity among moviegoers.  While the reviews of this movie are mixed for multiple reasons, shazbazzar and JediShua talk about the various incarnations of ghost-busting movies and TV shows from the past forty years (and maybe more, if you count Mickey, Goofy, and Donald) as they take on traffic and revisit the “remakes and reboots” discussion again.  Is the “original” Ghostbusters really original or was it a tribute to The Ghost Busters TV show from the ‘70s?  Which 1986 cartoon series really was the “real” Ghostbusters?  Do you like brownies and refried beans?  The ‘Dads try to make sense of it all as the third week of Ghostbusters has slowed online accusations from all sides of fandom to a trickle.

In the NEWS…

Flashback Games TechnoRetro Flashback
Listen in as shazbazzar and JediShua take turns on the classic 1983 Star Wars arcade game at Flashback Games in Loganville, Georgia.  You can almost feel the controller when you hear the music and sound effects and buttons clicking on the stand-up cabinet as the ‘Dads play a couple of rounds of one of their favorite arcade games.  Listen in for more gaming flashbacks in future episodes, as well.

So plug in your earbuds, EarBuds, and join in the conversation about Ghostbusters and more on this week’s TechnoRetro Dads.
