Your thoughts on Paramount+

I bought a subscription a couple of weeks ago and started watching Star Trek Discovery. I've since finished that series and Star Trek Picard. I've watched a few episodes of Frasier.

The 10 bucks was well spent for the Star Trek series, but I'm not really finding anything else worth watching and I plan to cancel my subscription.

I believe I've seen a positive post about Paramount+ at some point, and am wondering if I'm missing something?

sold streaming rights (to the current three seasons) to Peacock. So, even though I get a zillion emails to try Paramount plus, I'm not too tempted.

after the current season of NCIS was over I quickly ran out of things I really wanted to watch, so I cancelled.

These episodes were cut down from their original length to accommodate more commercials in re-runs.

The originals run a few minutes longer.

there's something like 5 different shows/seasons in production - Discovery, Picard, two animated shows (Lower Decks and the Nickelodeon one) and the new Captain Pike series

I'm interested in the Pike series as well, so I'll re-subscribe to watch it, but I'm afraid that they've missed the boat with their streaming service. While they have content, not much else interests me enough to pay 10 bucks a month for it. It's a shame really.
