Discovery+ is an on-demand streaming service. It is composed of shows from the Discovery channels, Quest, TLC, Food Network and more. There are plenty of documentaries, reality TV and cooking shows. In case that’s not enough for you, there are also Discovery+ Originals.
Whilst some episodes of various shows are free to watch wherever you want, you can pay $7 per month for access to all the shows involved on this service. Here are just a few of the shows you can watch on Discovery+ Originals..
1. Man v. Food
Hosts Adam Richmond (Season 1-4) and Casey Webb (Season 5-8) are both food fanatics. The series consists of the hosts travelling around the country, visiting big cities and small local towns to seek out the best food.
Man v. Food highlights many local hot spots that may not get picked up by others outside of the local area. As the name suggests, the hosts also take on America’s food challenges. From the spiciest curry in New York to a 75lbs steak with sides, this series is a fellow food fanatic’s dream.
2. Too Large
Obesity is a growing issue all around the world. In this Discovery+ Original, Too Large follows patients of bariatric surgeon Dr Proctor (Who has become famous as being the surgeon for Amy and Tammy Slaton in 1000lbs Sisters) as they work to get approved for surgery. Like My 500lb Life and 1000lb Sisters, this show shows all aspects of the patient’s life through the course of their treatment.
There are many humorous bits, as they work on their diets and exercise regimens. The show also shows the trials and tribulations of the patients and their families in a brutally honest fashion. At the end of season 1, there are ‘where are they now’ episodes to show how the patients have come since their episode.
3. Budget Battle
Budget Battle is a Discovery+ Original cooking competition, where four gourmet chefs create the best meals they can. However, they are on a tight budget and must use supermarket ingredients. Unlike more intense competitions such as MasterChef: The Professionals, host Casey Webb and the competitors make a more relaxed atmosphere.
What do the chefs get if they win? For every $1 the winner stays under budget, the winner gets $1,000. This later changed to $500 in episode 3. Another challenge is added in episode 3 where items become out of stock, to add more to the competition.
4. American Detective With Lt. Joe Kenda
Retired detective Lt. Joe Kenda, who has solved over 300 cases over his 23-year career, has made a name for himself by talking about these cases in Homicide Hunter. In this Discovery+ Original show, he joins other detectives to talk about their cases.
The talks highlight the effect on the detectives and how they solved the case. Complete with evidence, police audio, interrogation and interview clips, this show does not tell you how the case was solved, it shows you through the eyes of those who were personally involved in the case.
