Yeah. Some of that stuff may start to pop up on some other timelines sometime soon. 8-)

Our Timeline has been spruced up with some appropriate EGB screenshots, and now contains reference points for all the featured characters. In a sense, this means it is now complete, although more events from the Collinsverse will be added to it over the next couple of years.

As mentioned in this thread about the GBOT, where it is semi-relevant, I've recently done a very little rejigging of my EGB episode chronology in light of a certain revelation on Fritz's timeline (it's to do with American sports; if it isn't tennis, I am absolutely ignorant). This new post is really to say that I have since done a little rephrasing in January (so you'd barely have to scroll down) over the last couple of days to clarify and add a couple of thoughts, if anyone cares.

It's still fair to call the site 'a work in progress' because our timeline is ongoing (we have planned fanfic releases for some time). I will not be spamming the board by announcing every little addition to the timeline, so if you're at all interested in it, please be aware that you might like to check back from time to time and see what you can find. :D

I've just been up half the night creating a page called Kylie's Apartment, and adding a stupid thing that's been in my mind for a while now to the Shippers' Page (just after the introductory paragraph). I'll probably regret that in the morning...

I was recently gripped with urge to create a new page: Writers (I wonder if Jake will be surprised to learn that I was up for half of last night researching and composing it). My one-line description on the very aptly named Fun Stuff page says:

Quote:
Musings and analysis on some of the EGB writers and their episodes, including a little cross-referencing with RGB, and my five-star list.


Further information in the page's introductory paragraphs is as follows:

Quote:
Although I'll be thrilled if anyone besides Jake bothers reading this, I must admit, it's a resource created with my own personal use in mind. When watching EGB, I find it interesting to compare episodes with common writers, though these are strangely rare; six writers have two episodes to their name, and one has three, which means the remaining twenty-five episodes were written by one-offs. Because there are so many, I always forget who's written what even before I've finished my watch-through, and now I've got to a stage where I want to have easy access to this information.

Listed below are the writers with more than one EGB episode to their name and/or one or more episodes of RGB, as this too is information I would like to have at my fingertips. For each writer I hash out my opinions on his (every one of them happens to be a man) EGB-writing strengths, weaknesses and inconsistencies (if any) and, where relevant, I consider the influence an RGB-related background seems to have had. What some people (RGB fans, really) may consider to be lacking is information on the quality of these guys' RGB episodes; this is simply because I am not in a position to judge.


And finally, adding to that here on the forum: I'm sure a very large number of the words will be of interest to nobody except myself, but there may be those of you who are interested to see what I say about RGB. The short answer to that is, not a huge amount, and what I do say may come across about as negative as some of the less hate-filled opinions on EGB that I've read over the years. Of course, I have no disrespect for other people's opinions, and actually I'd be quite interested to know what they are.

Oh, and I'd also like to know if anyone spots that I've made a mistake, because I easily could have. :roll:

After a brief debate with myself, I've decided to announce my new finding, because I thought it would amuse one or two of you - so I hope it does!

Since re-watching the series again recently I've rephrased a few things on, and added a few more quotes to the Shippers' Page, including this little bit to the section on 'Till Death Do Us Start':

Quote:
...during Jason Marsden and Rino's general, clearly improvised pillow-fight-sounds-and-banter, I could swear I heard Eduardo say, 'Take that, you mother-f–...!'


If you want to see whether you agree with me, it's at around 8.51-2 on this Youtube video (quick, before it's removed for copyright reasons :o !).

Two very exciting new pages have been created for the website:

Jake Also Likes, in which Jake tells us about his favourite kids' shows and how they compare/relate to EGB, including some fascinating information about a Rivera ancestor who once featured in another cartoon (and has been mentioned in the Collinsverse, with more to come, and recently added to our timeline as well).

Fanfiction Character Index, a real labour of love, the finer details of which are explained on the page itself (a few short paragraphs which eventually superseded the note 'EXPLAIN EVERYTHING' I first wrote for myself... quite a tall order, really).

Neat. I love doing stuff like that too, as you well know.

I had to notice the name "Catharine Bartholomew"--I used that name in my stories as the name of an actress, the first one Venkman signed in his career as a Hollywood agent. She actually appears in Curtain Call, a Ghostbusters West Coast story. (Probably no connection, though--the actress would have been at least ~20 in 1992, and the name's not unusual or anything) :lol:

The inclusion of the voyage of Captain Gaspard (and other characters) from The Mysterious Cities of Gold has caused Our Timeline to span exactly 500 years, which very much strengthens my own belief in Multiverse theory - the Collinsverse certainly exists out there somewhere, and we are merely channelling it. (In other words, it tells us what to wriiiite!)

Certainly this 500-year span was completely unintentional - MCoG happens to begin in 1532, and I chose 2032 for the epilogue in my Christmas Special because I wanted to write 'Twenty-nine years later' in homage to Harry Potter's 'Nineteen years later', and it seemed a suitable amount of time for Donatella the sea turtle to be all grown up. I didn't even deliberately set the 'current' action in 2003 at first - it just turned out that that had to be the year based on the characters' grades at school, which could only be the tenth grade for Oscar and the eleventh grade for Kevin and the others. If that doesn't prove the existence of the Multiverse, nothing ever will!

I notice how my 'EGB Comparison' sections actually make more specific reference to The Real Ghostbusters than to Extreme Ghostbusters, but this is hardly surprising as everything except The Mummy was very much contemporaneous with RGB - indeed, I know for a fact that RGB aired just before Knightmare on CITV in September and October 1987. I expect that was one of the times I used to regularly watch RGB and wish I was watching He-Man!

I can't look at our character index without declaring, 'It's magnificent!', which I think is a pretty accurate assessment. The truly wonderful thing is that it isn't even finished yet, and indeed two pretty interesting characters from GBOT continuity will be joining the ranks of the index come Sunday week.
