I was a little concerned about Roger when I read #1, but right now I'm not that worried. Check out the Ghostbusters #8 thread for more about that.


Thanks, Fritz. I'll go check it out. :)

I adore these two, their relationship is one of my favourite in fiction, and I've only just joined the fandom. I'm not that far in the cartoon (I'm refusing to go beyond season 2 because I heard about how bad it gets), and I have yet to read any comics, where do they get married?

There are a few post-Season 2 episodes you should consider. The biggest one is the Season 6 episode "Janine, You've Changed".

There's never been an official wedding, though some have said that by Extreme Ghostbusters (EGB) they do act like a married couple at times.

There have been various fan fic weddings; the one I did is linked in my signature. There are parts that might not make sense without a lot of knowledge about both cartoons and the fan fic that proceeded it, but I hope it wouldn't leave you completely lost either.

Hope this is helpful.
:)

Don't be afraid, just go watch and have fun! There are very good episodes also in the latter series (except from the eps with those Junior Ghostbusters and the Slimer sub-serie, imho).

Offcourse you'll have to withstand the voice acting changes, drawing style changes and the complete rape of Janine's character (get used to the idea that she becomes kinda useless =.=" ) but the plot of many episodes is really worthy watching (: a couple of my faves are in season 4-6

One day, years ago, I turned on the tv and they were broadcasting EGB. I had never seen it and my first thought was: "omg finally! now they'll show that they got married!"
Then my hopes were shattered and I refused to watch further than ep 3 (and only because that day it was the "premiere" and italian television decided to throw three eps in a row).
This is one of the cases where the producers should go take a look at the fandom and actually take a few hints.

Sorry for the vent, I couldn't resist XD this is a topic that makes my blood fire up.

Well the blokes in charge tend think either A) Romantic confirmation will drive away the male audience, or B) The couple wont be interesting if they go beyond sexual tension. Both those situations are easily avoided so long as the writing is good and the romance doesn't become the central plot, but studio executives are a suspicious and cowardly lot and often lack good writers because they only like to hire writers that will listen to them and jump at their beck and call, instead of hiring good writers who know what plots and characters will work and will argue if the quality of writing is threatened by executive meddling.
So no EgonxJanine for us outside of a buttload of hints.

sadly I think the main problem is Ramis (a.k.a. the Devil). He's strongly against this pairing (that he created lol!) and I think he was the one who cockblocked his own character.

Maybe Fritz knows more about this... since I'm only as old as the cartoon and I don't live in the US (here the fandom is dead) I miss a lot of juicy gossips and rumors.

Would Harold Ramis really have that much control over the cartoon though?

(My first post!) Ah yes, Egon and Janine, my first and most beloved ship. :)

I remember being so insanely furious that they never hooked up on screen (or in print, or...) that I took it upon myself to draw up the best fan art a six year old can muster and go crazy. In fact, I credit my going into illustration as an adult to the years of Ghostbusters fan art I cranked out for so long!

I saw XGB before RGB because I was born a little too late to catch the full glory of the franchise, but m parents were huge nerds and got me loads of VHS recorded tapes, so I've seen every episode that exists, even the insanely terrible Slimer and the Real Ghistbusters fiasco.

I remember yelling my television so loud during the Cohila episode that my parents almost turned the TV off because they thought it was upsetting me! Ah, little did they know, I'd rewatch everything years later and still yell at the screen!

Man, I am sure hoping that the IDW comics will keep feeding the shippers, but I doubt it, with all the Sony control and of course Ramis' dislike of the pairing. :(

I get what you mean. The Cohila episode got me tearing at my hair. But I think the IDW comics is doing a good job of feeding the shippers so far.
