Halloween is quickly approaching, and while we think the upcoming birthday of yours truly is a more important milestone, the rest of the country sees it differently. Case in point, there’s no “Ryan’s Birthday movie,” but there is a very much-anticipated sequel to the Michael Myers saga titled simply Halloween. Sequels to massive franchises that toss aside all other sequels are all the rage these days, and that’s the case here, but with an excellent writing staff including Danny McBride, plus the blessing from John Carpenter himself, the new Halloween is set to be a monster hit (sorry, we couldn’t help it).
We’ll be talking about the new Halloween movie on this week’s show, as well as a swell of other entertainment news, including the trailer for Jonah Hill’s intriguing new A24 film, Mid90s, Netflix’s The Haunting of House Hill, new developments on The Mandalorian (the Star Wars series on Disney’s streaming service), some major series cancellations, and much more.

Between the Streams
Between the Streams is your weekly streaming guide to all of the hottest, most important, and (of course) dumbest new developments in streaming and entertainment, providing a handy recap of the week that was and a preview for what is ahead. We tackle the best and brightest movies and TV shows coming your way, including way too many superhero movies — and we love it.
At Between the Streams, we take on the big issues of our times, like whether or not Star Wars is going to go off the rails in the next few years (probably), or why five seasons is the ultimate zenith for any drama that wants to go out on top (thank you, Breaking Bad). We’re just as happy arguing about whether or not Alf was a quintessential ’80s sitcom as we are pondering Hollywood’s increasing penchant for reboots and nostalgia-driven mash-ups like Stranger Things. In short, we’re all about the most awesome, water cooler-worthy entertainment subjects that happen each and every week.
We do the tough part so you don’t have to, digging up all the stories you need to know about each Friday in a fun and succinct weekly chat. So sit back, grab something to drink, and enjoy the ride. It’s all entertainment from here, and let’s face it, we could all use the break.
