Content! It’s all about content! And if you’re already running out of things to watch at home, CBS All Access is here to help. The streaming subscription service was already offering up a free trial for 30 days, but since it looks like we’re going to be social distancing for at least another month, they’ve extended the trial period for another 30 days. That means you can get a 60-day CBS All Access free trial right now, giving you plenty of time to binge The Twilight Zone reboot and more. Read More »
The first season of Star Trek: Picard was as frustratingly mixed as any first Trek season. As thrilling as it was to see Jean-Luc Picard return, its great ideas and story elements are tantalising moments amid a show that’s merely pretty good. The central story is solid. It’s the best-shot Star Trek show to date, shying away from shiny sci-fi precision in favour of earthy tones and messy spills of light. The inevitable moments of fan service mostly serve the story. And while its structure and texture is wildly different to any prior Treks, it still finds time to explore big ideas like the rest of them.

When CBS All Access launched in the fall of 2014, it was created as a way for audiences to access libraries of current and old shows from CBS. Eventually, it expanded to include original programming like Star Trek: Discovery, the reboot of The Twilight Zone, and The Good Fight. Despite having a limited selection of library titles and original programming, the service has racked up over 4 million subscribers as of spring last year. But CBS All Access is about to get a makeover.
The newly merged ViacomCBS is considering combining the CBS All Access streaming service with a slew of Viacom’s content creators in order to launch a new streaming service.

Sir Patrick Stewart wants one thing to be absolutely clear: his new CBS All Access series, Star Trek: Picard, is not merely Star Trek: The Next Generation 2.0.
“Almost twenty years have passed. Things have become more complex,” the acclaimed actor says in a new featurette. “The world of Starfleet, the world of the Federation, is not quite what it was the last time Jean-Luc Picard was seen in that world. It’s different. And it’s not all good.” Watch the full video below. Read More »
