What are the best shows to watch on discovery+?

    I have discovery plus for 6 months, what are the shows I should prioritize giving a go in that time?

    I like dating/reality shows with an interesting premise, nature/animals and the occasional survival show I’ve witnessed, competition shows (except cooking/baking), art, things that broaden the mind, inpirational/lighthearted, and things that peak curiosity and are interesting/different/neat. I’ve also enjoyed watching ppl find historical treasures and discuss them in shows like American Pickers and Pawn Stars.

    I’m not into dry or depressing (or scary!) shows, or cars, guns, etc. I’ve never been interested in True Crime but if there’s one great one I should give a try to see if I can get into it lmk!

    Just got this for a month for the snooker. Outside of that I would have to rate this as one of the worst streaming services going by content alone.

    Have tried watching the live Discovery History channel and it's back-to-back rubbish, e.g. 'Combat Dealers', 'Blowing up history', 'UFO witness', etc. It's the same across the other supposed documentary channels.

    When the snooker is up I certainly won't be re-subscribing. You'd get better quality documentaries on YouTube, and free of charge.
