Storytelling can be traced back to the beginning of the human race (assuming we’re the only animals who tell stories). What would our ancestors sitting around a campfire think of our films & shows? But we humans don’t just tell stories because we feel like it. Stories allow us to share information in such a way that creates an emotional connection.
They help us develop and keep empathy, making information more memorable. Because stories compose an emotional connection, we can gather a deeper understanding of other people’s experiences. A good word to remember is “sonder”. It’s the realization that each and every passerby we see every day has a life as vivid and complex as our own, and storytelling is a great way to teach and remind us of that crucial fact.
Today, there are many platforms housing evolved campfire tales (Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, etc.). But today, let’s discuss Paramount Plus! ViacomCBS has announced the movies, TV shows, and sports coming to the streaming platform next month. The Paramount Plus February 2022 lineup will include the premiere of Celebrity Big Brother season 3 and new episodes of Star Trek: Discovery season 4.
We’ve gathered some of the greatest shows and movies to binge on Paramount Plus next month. Don’t forget to share your favorites in the comments below!
“From the devastatingly bombed streets of London to industrial Chicago to Nazi Berlin, capturing nail-biting criminal investigations to prove that everything is not always what it seems.”
For those interested in the ominous realms of storytelling, Murderous History, is a six-part series investigating the most gruesome and compelling murder mysteries of the past. Via Cinematic reenactments, we follow a team of dedicated investigators & perpetrators while unveiling how each case made its own mark on history.
Tune in to Paramount Plus and learn about the London Blitz Killer. A body was found in a bombed-out London church, forcing investigators on a race to determine if it was caused by the Nazi Blitz or a local killer (perhaps a serial killer?). Maybe you’ll be curious about Chicago’s White City Devil, the killer nanny or Rio’s Playboy Killers?
Perhaps one of the most iconic shows to stream on Paramount Plus right now would have to be the new iCarly. And it looks like the streaming platform will drop new seasons of shows yearly. Paramount Plus renewed iCarly for season 2 back in July of last year.
Carly Shay and her friends are going through life in their twenties, navigating work, love, and their families. Carly’s new best friend/roommate, Harper (Laci Mosley) is a pansexual character with the ambition to become a fashion stylist after her wealthy family lost all of their money.
Freddie has an adopted step-daughter, Millicent (Jaidyn Triplett) who’s not only obsessed with social media but sees the older Carly as “washed up” as well as competition to her small YouTube channel. And as Carly noted, the still-new Paramount Plus show is all grown-up! Fans can expect a more gaping, mature look into the lives of their favorite characters.
Inside Hampton Court Palace
Later next month, Paramount Plus will present us with an inside glimpse of the historic royal palace best known for being the sanctuary of Henry VII. Amid Death of the Queen, you’ll explore the palace’s sixty acres of stunning gardens, the haunted corridor, along the doomed marriage of Henry VII & Catherine Howard.
The first episode of Inside Hampton Court Palace, Quest for an Heir will take you to Hampton Court’s warders which staff open and close to the public.
Paramount Plus’s Wildest California is simply a look at the many creatures occupying California’s protected areas including sidewinder snakes and wild mustangs, elephant seals, and humpback whales (because there’s just much more to California than wine vineyards & Hollywood!).
