The best shows on Paramount Plus

It's impossible to boil down all the best shows on Paramount+. There simply are too many of them. It's an impossible task — to say nothing of a subjective one. But it's also extremely important given that Paramount+ isn't just a rebranding of CBS All Access.

Of all the places I expected Discovery to take its penultimate episode of the season, I was not expecting it to perform an extended Die Hard riff, complete with a winking nod to John McClane in the form of Michael (Sonequa Martin-Green) losing her shoes. It’s a bizarre s...

'The Mandalorian' isn't even the second-best sci-fi series on TV right now

Everything about The Mandalorian is beautiful. Every scene seems as if it was born from some sort of oil painting, transformed onto your screen. (And in a way, it likely was.) It has a rich history and canon in which to explore, and it has not shied away from doing so. (At time to its own detriment, perhaps.) And it has the sort of slow swagger that you don't get much these days. And you can&...
