It's not the greatest show ever but at least it has some sort of soul to it instead of being artificial and shallow.

Excellent points. This is exactly why the Academy Awards is now a joke, with them caving to SJWs who attacked them for a lack of diversity in their past nominations. People should gain employment and earn recognition, based on their merits...NOT their gender or race. Unfortunately, social and unconscious biases often affect the implementation of fair, merit-based practices.

The thing about the new Ghostbusters is that they had room to really make a run at it and make it all woman.
Instead of rebooting and pretending the original never happened which is what they did, they should have built off the original. They could have made one of the new ghostbusters the daughter of one of the original cast, had a cameo or two of the originals to pass the torch and made an entirely new story. The all-female cast could have still projected the "woke" angle, and they didn't have to trash audience goodwill by seeking to erase the classic by rebooting it.
They might have made something good with it that way.
