Welcome to Stream Surfing / 'Old' Review
Welcome back In this episode We discuss our new format and name. We will continue to bring the best movie and now series reviews. We were dealing with a stressful few months at the beginning of the year and decided to take a break. But we are back and better than ever. So the new format will be one episode reviewing a movie and another on a series both being from at leas the last two years. Nothing that is new. The reason for that is because of spoilers. We generally wanted to keep our episodes spoiler free. But in our opinion it didn't make the episodes as dynamic as they could be. This will make the new episodes more fun for you as the audience to listen to and more fun for us as well. So, in our first new episode we discuss M. Night Shyamalan's film Old now streaming on HBOMax, a thriller about a family on a tropical holiday who discover that the secluded beach where they are relaxing for a few hours is somehow causing them to age rapidly reducing their entire lives into a single day. We discuss how the film gives off White Lotus/Nine Perfect Strangers Vibes and the horror of time. This movie will keep you hooked even thought at times the dialogue is clunky and the film itself is super depressing. We also have a spoilers section now that we will announce either in the very beginning of a new episode or at the halfway point to give you the opportunity to watch the movie or series we are discussing and come back and listen! Enjoy!

The Haunting of Bly Manor Review
In our latest Spooky Season episode, we reviewed Mike Flanagan's newest installment of his "Haunting" series, The Haunting of Bly Manor now streaming on Netflix. After the huge success of The Haunting of Hill House, Flanagan took a page out of Ryan Murphy's playbook and brought us a fresh story with some familiar faces. Loosely based on Henry James' 1898 novella, The Turn of the Screw, The Haunting of Bly Manor follows a young governess hired by a man to look after his niece and nephew at the family country house after they fall into his care. Arriving at the Bly estate, she begins to see apparitions that proceed to haunt the premises.... but it's about SO MUCH MORE than that. Just like the first season, Flanagan has delivered a fresh take on horror that draws on trauma and the horrors that we all encounter as human beings. Some notable actors include Victoria Pedretti, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Amelia Eve, T'Nia Miller and Henry Thomas. In this episode we discuss:Intro / Haunting of Hill House / Mike FlanaganLove storyVery depressing Binge-able / uneven pacingAmazing visualsGreat mysteriesOutstanding castConclusion/verdictDo you agree with our verdict?

The owls are not what they seem...welcome to our special episode of Film Surfing where we discuss one of our favorite shows, Twin Peaks! In this episode we discuss the world of David Lynch and Mark Frost's groundbreaking, revolutionary TV Series beginning in 1990 and wrapping up (?) in 2017. A crime drama mixed with healthy doses of the surreal, this series is about FBI Agent Dale Cooper, who travels to the small logging town of Twin Peaks to solve the murder of seemingly innocent high schooler Laura Palmer. Almost nothing is as it seems, however, and the show's sometimes eerie visuals, oddball characters and wild dream sequences drive the point home. We also discuss aliens, Project Blue Book, different dimensions, time & space as well as Lynch's heavily guarded secret new project coming to Netflix sometime soon! So grab a cup of coffee and slice of cherry pie and listen along!
