The main anchor of Paramount + is the long history of CBS networks, including not only the house of broadcast hits like “NCIS” and “Blue Bloods”, but also networks like Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, MTV and the Smithsonian Channel. . It will also be home to films from the Paramount, Miramax and MGM companies, with the promise of new successes at Paramount + first, which has already been reported will be the case with “A Quiet Place 2.” At launch, there are already over 2,500 titles in the library, and new films will be released on the platform, including a show based on the hit game “Halo” and a prequel to “Yellowstone”.
Finally, there will be original lineup from Paramount +, including three early-screened offerings that were dropped today, March 4.e, as well as the new adventure of everyone’s favorite animated underwater creature in “The Spongebob Movie: Sponge on the Run”. They are as follows:
“Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years”
Do you remember “Muppet Babies”? Family classics are often given prequels and that’s when the culture cycle of SpongeBob Squarepants, Patrick Star, Squidward Tentacles, and the rest of the gang. “Kamp Koral” stars a 10-year-old SpongeBob SquarePants at summer camp, and it maintains much of the sense of humor that made Mr. Squarepants an international star. In other words, it’s goofy and playful, never taking itself too seriously. Personally, I prefer the look of the original series more than the boxy CGI here, but the writing is pretty much the same for this show that was originally slated to air on Nickelodeon, and was then moved to Paramount + to accompany the last movie. Six episodes will drop today and more are planned for the future.
“For God’s sake”
Paramount + ‘s most distinctive new property is this comedy-documentary from the producers of “American Vandal”. While this Netflix comedy was a parody of documentaries, it is truly non-fiction, an investigation into the disappearance of a man named Harold Heaven, who disappeared during the brutal Ontario winter in 1934. Harold’s great-grandnephew Mike Mildon works with Jackson Rowe to investigate a case close to his family’s hearts, even questioning his mother and father in the process. It’s a charming, self-aware series that lasts a little too long (eight episodes is a bit of a long time), but it does a remarkable job of poking fun at the real kind of crime (part of their pitch to make take off the series includes “We have a drone for taking good aerial photos”) while also presenting a legitimately interesting mystery. It’s really fun and intriguing, and I hope it finds an audience.
