  • The end of the world is brought up a magic tune.

    8.1
    One of the higher quality episodes from the second season. Some episodes were crude and cheap, but not this one. They looked like they spent money on everything especially the animation scenes with the tidal waves, earthquakes, demons and lightning.



    A young man named Jeremy (who feels the world was wronged him) and his hideous servant Detillo unleash havoc on the world by playing a magic tune.



    Egon and the Ghostbusters figure out that this part of Ragnarok, and the end of the world. This is an interesting episode partially for the big budget and the fact that the Ghostbusters as you will see are largely ineffective. One of those stories where they are in the stories, but they are not the main focus. The ending was predictable but the whole episode was great.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The words that Jeremy speaks during the summoning ritual are the Ring Inscription from the Lord of the Rings books. After that, he speaks the words "Khazad-Dum", the Dwarven name for Moria from the same source.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (A PKE meter has just overloaded and exploded after scanning a letter.)
      Ray: Do you have any idea what kind of power he must have been in contact with for a single sheet of exposed paper to do that?
      Winston: Uh...do I want to?
      Ray: Only if you want nightmares for the rest of your life!
      Winston: I'll pass.

    • [A giant winged creature just flew down and took out a big chunk from the back of Ecto-1]
      Ray: That thing hurt Ecto-1!
      Peter: The world's being destroyed and he worries about Ecto-1. We must speak to him later about his priorities.
      Winston: If there is a later.
      Peter: You know, you're really no fun anymore.

    • [When the Ghostbusters are about to set their proton packs on high detonation to stop Jeremy Whittington from adding the finishing notes to the song which will cause Ragnarok to destroy the world]
      Winston: Well, I guess this is the end.
      Ray: It's been really swell working with you guys, you too, Peter!
      Peter: Hey ditto, only next time don't call me, I'll call you, okay?
      Egon: Janine...

  • NOTES (2)

    • Whittington's manservant DiTillio is named afterr RGB writer Larry DiTillio, who would follow Stracynski to Babylon 5. Larry would repay Joe's compliment in "You Can't Teach an Old Demon New Tricks" with "The Great Strazinski".

    • An episode of Extreme Ghostbusters called "Slimer's Sacrifice" would be a follow up to this episode since during the big battle in this episode, the Ghostbusters contained a being named Surt.
