Not in order. Not the complete season.

"I, for one, think it's great this show is finally getting some DVD treatment. It was fun for kids with the adventure, but also intelligent enough for adults to get a little something out of it. Now this DVD is NOT part of a season 1 set or anything like that. It's just four episodes from the series. They aren't in any particular order either. Two of the episodes were written by Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski. My sources say the episodes on this DVD are as follows (all from season 1):
Adventures in Slime and Space - Slimer gets caught in one of Egon's inventions and becomes millions of little Slimers.
They Call Me Mister Slimer - (JMS) Slimer gets a bodyguard job from a kid who gets picked on by bullies.
Victor the Happy Ghost - The boys adopt a cute little ghost, but Slimer finds out the spirit is not all it appears to be.
Slimer Come Home - (JMS) Slimer gets in trouble at Winston's birthday party and runs away from home.
Apparently this particular DVD is themed on episodes that feature Slimer (the green and lumpy vacuum cleaner with teeth of a ghost from the 1st movie). No word on any extra features and I fear there won't be any to speak of. Let's just hope they made a good video transfer and did some remastering on the sound. I give it a "just okay" since it's not a comprehensive collection. If you're a fan of the series (and a particular fan of Slimer) then this should be worth the money considering the value pricing."
Big fans will still have to wait.

"I am very disappointed about Sony releasing this great show on measily 4 episode DVD's at a "low, low price." I wish they would have released it in 30 episode volumes at least like other cartoon shows. Having four episodes on one DVD doesn't utilize the space a DVD has and it's also not economical to pay the "high" price. Reminds me of a certain first season of the show that introduced us to reruns. It was released the same way and was eventually released like all the other seasons. Wait for the larger volumes in which you pay less per episode."
I'm Not Buying This Crap...

"FOUR whole episodes... What is this, 1997?
Sony has no concept of how to release a decent DVD.
Look at how they recently treated the live action GB franchise with their crappy reissues and horrendous looking box art. They are completely clueless.
When the release was first announced, I was prepared to pick this up on street date... until I found out the specs.
Either send these properties over to your Classic Media division or auction them off to a more apt studio because save for the recent Pink Panther films and cartoons (which conveniently tie in to promote the new Steve Martin movie), your releases the past couple of years have been entirely insignificant."
Sony..Why? Release complete season box sets now!!!!!

"The Real Ghostbusters is one of the best series I have ever seen, and I've been waiting pretty much my whole life for a definative release of the episodes,as I'm sure have many other fans so why Sony insist on releasing random episodes on DVD with no features escapes me! they do it with the movies as well, it's about time they got it together and brought out the two original movies as ultimate editions and The Real Ghostbusters as proper box sets, with features and in order! practically every other classic kids series have done so, just look at Thundercats! that's how it should be done! I cannot wait any longer, stop shunning this classic show and give it the proper release it deserves! I give it five stars because the show is so great, but this DVD just ain't good enough!"
