I could watch the five most recent episodes of Stephen Colbert's "Late Show" before, but that's been stopped. Paramount and CBS are dead to me now.

You said "mount"

I didn't look at it all that thoroughly but it doesn't look much different than CBS All Access. I noticed the Indiana Jones movies, which I already have.

The entire shows are put up on YouTube each night.

I'm not a big "watch old TV shows" kind of guy (other than MASH on MeTV)
But I doubt I would go to a streaming service and watch MASH.
I just like to watch it when it pops up.

So the attraction of all these streaming services that I can watch old TV shows is lost on me.

But the same goes with old movies.

I own all Star Wars/Star Trek/Indiana Jones/Disney/James Bond on DVD.

On an average night I'm not going to randomly put in an old DVD.
But if I run across Star Wars on TBS or TNT (which is almost daily) I will leave it on and watch it.

I only got Disney+ after season 2 of Mandalorian (because my kids wanted that and WandaVision) and we only use it Friday (for WandaVision).  So I'd say I'm not really getting my monies worth.

I have Netflix but I don't remember the last time I watched ANYTHING on it

We're currently watching the most recent season of Blacklist on Netflix.  What a letdown that's been so far.  Other than that, I'm with you.  Haven't been watching much on Netflix at all.

Same for me with Netflix (exception being some of their documentaries on animals, which still pulls me in)

We've been a bit burnt out on binging and so we've  moved to buying a few old seasons of shows we like and doing our own nightly playlist of 1 show each like our own station.

It's working for us, without us saying, "bored of this show"

It would be nice to have a "shuffle" feature for older series

Same with me except I didn't know Wandavision was nine episodes for the entire series. But that's probably for the best, I don't know how far they could have gone with it. Still have the last two to watch.

I got roped into CBS All Access when DirecTV dropped CBS right before the Superb Owl and I needed an excuse to eat enormous amounts of food, so I signed up for a 7-day free trial (it came back a few hours later, go figure). I binged "Twilight Zone" because it was on my list and canceled on day seven. They, of course, charged me for a month and processed my cancelation for the following month, March 14. So I have ten days to explore Paramount+. I was just on for five seconds and confirmed it's just as lame.

/I did watch "Why Women Kill" last weekend

Ewww, no.

Too many streaming sites with too little content at too high of a price if you subscribe to more than a couple of them. This is turning into everything that was wrong with Cable at 5 times the price. So I guess that I'm pretty firmly in the "Hell No!" camp.
