SurrealEstate (SYFY) - Season One premieres 7/16/21

SurrealEstate premiered last Friday on SYFY and airs weekly.

https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/surrea...y-how-to-watch


SurrealEstate follows realtor Nick Roman and an elite team of specialists that handle the cases no one else can: haunted and possessed houses that literally scare would-be buyers away. Researching, investigating and “fixing” the things that go bump in the night, the team works to create closure - and closings -- even as they struggle with demons of their own.

Didn't see a thread for this new scripted SYFY series and thought the pilot last week was entertaining. I got heavy Haven vibes with vague nods to the X-Files. A man and woman sell haunted real estate listings, often having to solve the ghost problems before selling the property. Hints of a backstory and ongoing plot threads, so lightly serialized.

Thanks for starting this thread, or I would have missed this. It has an old school SyFy vibe (and by "old school" I mean 2010-ish). First 2 eps were fun.

In addition to being filmed in Canada, it shares an actor with Haven (the IT guy).

Is this “real” or scripted from the start?

SurrealEstate is a scripted drama with touches of horror and a little levity for humor. It's starting up against the Olympics, which makes me nervous for its future.

I've really enjoyed the first two episodes. Definitely an early 2010s SYFY vibe akin to Haven and Eureka. Probably the first show I've completely dug on SYFY since Krypton.

For a minute this week's episode had me shocked. I think this series could have a long run since the cast of characters is pretty good.

I need to catch up on this, as it sounds like something I would enjoy. Also, I tend to give Syfy shows that cast Tim Rozon a shot regardless of the quality of the show.

The first two episodes were way to cheesy and cheap for me (the doll scene and the episode with the little girl). It picks up a bit after that, but the acting isn't all that good. I guess I'll stick with this I just binged 6 episodes in a a row.

I really enjoyed this, and I had to tell myself to stop watching last night and get some sleep. I very quickly made it to the third episode and will be caught up before the week is up. I of course am a Tim Rozon fan, but I also thought the woman who plays his partner but also has supernatural abilities of her own was good on the show. It looked to me like her and Tim seemed to click while working with each other on the show. I also find it a bit interesting and would like to know more about the back-story of the house that disappeared his mother (the same house whose current owner he is crushing on bad).

This show may not be "great," but it does seem to be able to draw you in and make you want to watch one ep after the other as quick as possible. Finally, yes this show feels like something the Syfy channel would have aired say 10-15 years back when shows like Haven were what some of us looked forward to watching on a regular basis.

With the exception of Resident Alien, I had basically stopped watching or paying attention to the Syfy Channel as of late, but between Resident Alien, this show, and well...if they bring back airing Syfy original movies, then the Syfy Channel that I used to constantly watch and love will be back in action. I am aware that my wish for the channel to bring back originals like Sharktopus vs Whalewolf will probably not happen, but they are starting to become a channel I seek out again.

Me too. The gang did a pretty clever job setting that up.

I've watched each episode twice, so safe to say I'm enjoying the show. But it does make me miss the magical (pun intended) lineup of Eureka, Warehouse 13, and Haven.

But ya can't dwell in the past!

I am all caught up, and I am looking forward to I believe the 2 back to back episodes that will be airing soon. Also, yes, I was shocked by what happened in the watchmaker episode but kept telling myself that it had to be connected to their attempt to trick the watchmaker and I am so glad I was right.

The latest episode ended on a fairly ominous note. The owner of the house that is haunted by Tim Rozon's characters mother is now possessed (not by his mothers spirit), and might be a big bad in the show for more than one future episode, but we shall see. This show has turned out to be a lot of fun to watch.

I believe the season only runs 10 episodes, so I expect big things happening fairly soon.

Only 10 episodes? That sucks. With Megan now possessed, maybe they're setting up something big. They haven't really explored Susan's telekinesis.
