Top 3 show on TV
Paramount + is steadily growing into a streaming powerhouse with ‘Star Trek: Discovery,’ ‘The Good Fight,’ and, most recently, ‘EVIL’–a psychological mystery that examines the origins of evil along the dividing line between science and religion.
The series focuses on skeptical female psychologist Dr. Kristen Bouchard (Katja Herbers) who joins priest-in-training David Acosta (Mike Colter) and super skeptical contractor Aasif Mandvi (Ben Shakir) as they investigate the Church’s backlog of unexplained mysteries including supposed miracles, demonic possessions and hauntings.
Their job? To assess if there’s a logical explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work.
In Season 2, we saw evil hit closer to home with Kristen struggling with her darker nature, David suffering temptation as he gets closer to his ordination, and Ben dealing with night terrors that prey on his greatest fears.
There’s also that kiss between newly ordained David and Kristen in the finale that we’re sure will, uh, complicate things this season.
Season 3 begins moments after the kiss with the two not only having to navigate this fraught new reality but contending with David’s involvement with “the entity”–an espionage unit within the Catholic church.
Meanwhile, Ben finds his brain breaking from their unsolved cases and turns to his sister for help.
