FTN Halloween Special: Robin Shelby

31 Oct25:27 Play

Although we at FTN love several franchises: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, for many of us, Ghostbusters is the one we hold closest to our hearts.
AsK anyone what they remember about Ghostbusters and pretty close to the top of the list of answers you’ll get will be Slimer, the green ghost introduced in the first movie by sliming Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) and who was an animatronic – and in one case a painted peanut – creation.

Slimer soon became a big part of the team when, last seen escaping during the credits of the origianl movie, he was re-introduced in The Real Ghostbusters animated series as a companion, indeed in the episode Citizen Ghost, the writers explained how he came to live with the four Ghostbusters and saved them from evil ghost versions of themselves.

Slimer soon became as important to the audience as the boys in grey themselves.

So, by the time Ghsotbusters II went before the cameras Slimer was to be a bigger part of the team, to be seen interacting in the movie and, once again, helping to save the day. To do this they needed him to have character and to be played by an actress. That actress is the lovely Robin Shelby…

It was our absolute pleasure to send Big Phil to chat with her about being history’s most loveable ghost, working with Bill Murray and being part of the movie Willow…

And that’s just the beginning. Happy Halloween from us all at FTN!

Just a few of the things covered this week: Adele’s theme for Skyfall, why that Jurassic Park dream can never happen and we look at the finale of Doctor Who and the final sign-off of the Ponds.
We talk about the return of Dexter and the Walking Dead, and then The Monday Movie Show’s Stuart comes on to go through the UK Box Office top ten and gives us his opinion on all the new releases.
Then later, Andy, the other half of the Monday Movie Show, calls into the show to talk about the home release of Prometheus and just how much the extra features bring to the movie experience.
We also talk about the trailer for A Good Day To Die Hard – yes, John McClane is back! And we geek out about just how briliant IDW’s ongoing Ghostbusters series is.

Another week, another nerdy EXTRAVAGANZA!
We were plagued with technical issues this week, so apologies for some of the craziness. Marc’s blaming co-host Stephen ‘Vote Saxon o7’ McCullagh, but it’s probably nothing to do with him…
Ok, this week we talk Patrick Stewart returning to the X-Men movies, Doctor Who pops up again as we prepare for the tearful leaving of Amy and Rory, we get all man-crushy over Seth McFarlane – it’s embarrassing but we aren’t proud.
We discuss the problems the Planet of the Apes sequel faces due to Fox giving the release date before they have a director, actors or any of that unimportant stuff…
We contemplate the damage kids could do to our toy collection – Toy Story flash backs! – and we get ourselves, and you, ready for the biggest Star Wars event in the UK, yes, the Emerald Garrison is back in W5, Belfast and FTN are going to be there too.
And this is merely the tip of the iceberg that is FTN Podcast Episode 38.
