    A fun episode. Once again, Grover kind of stole the show with his cluelessness (which almost seems a tad Flanderized anymore), but Elmo did a wonderful job of recreating a beach for Alan, and the beach song sounded very much like something you would expect from The Beach Boys. Liked the use of Smart Cookies at Pecan Sandy Beach, and also enjoyed the 12 rap as well.

    Very enjoyable.

    The street was pretty good. I liked seeing the Count and how the pictures of his vacation, which was caves were completely dark. I also really liked the song, I'm glad Sesame is putting effort into the music for the street stories now.

    "Surfin' Sesame Street" premieres on PBS this Tuesday August 7. Tune in and let us know your thoughts.

    This episode aired on HBO only one month ago on July 7, 2018.

    Interesting. This might be the shortest space they've had between the PBS and HBO airings (not counting the Autism Awareness specials). And didn't the episodes used to be weekly when they re-aired on PBS like they were on HBO?

    Since this is Season 48 premiere week on PBS, four of the five episodes this week are new. In following weeks, there will usually be one new Season 48 episode on PBS, typically each Monday.

    Why is PBS airing the 48th season so early?

    I wondered about that too because I didn't think PBS would start airing season 48 until November. Maybe they figured a lot of viewers just didn't want to wait nine months. Heck, I often have the same problem. Lol.

    HBO began airing Season 48 two months earlier than usual due to the Thanksgiving episode which aired in November 2017. Consequently, this allowed PBS to start the season earlier as well after their obligatory nine month waiting period ended.
