I think, in many ways, The Real Ghostbusters was better overall that Ghostbusters. It’s not a one to one comparison because the goals were different. As a singular entity Ghostbusters is as close to a perfect movie as you can reasonably hope for. That said, the episodic nature of TRG allowed it to expand on the characters and ideas in a more fun way than the movie could. Maybe I just have an affinity for episodic content, but The Clone Wars is better than the prequel films overall even though it builds from them. I’m not sure if I’m explaining myself properly. I’m stuck in an uncomfortable position for typing and it’s not helping me sort out my ideas.
It’s hardly important. I just feel like being able to explore the idea more fully is an advantage that a movie doesn’t get to use. If I was stuck with only being able to have one of them I would choose he cartoon is what I’m saying.
