Sure, Disney+ has an exciting slate of Marvel spin-off series coming to the streaming platform in the next few years, but you shouldn't sleep on the shows available right now. From Jon Favreau's highly-anticipated Star Wars spin-off to the entirety of The Simpsons catalog and a few vintage animated series, there's plenty of shows worth binging while we wait for that Loki solo series.
Here are the best TV shows you can stream on Disney+ right now.Lucasfilm The Mandalorian
1 season, 8 episodes
Jon Favreau is helming this Star Wars spin-off described as a Space Western that takes place five years after the events of Return of the Jedi. The Empire has fallen, the First Order has yet to be created, so the galaxy is a lawless place perfect for a bounty hunter to wreak havoc and make his own rules, which is exactly what Pedro Pascal's Mandalorian seems to be doing. This series has been kept tightly under wraps, so the plot is a bit of a mystery at this point, but the teases we've gotten look promising. The only drawback: Disney has decided to use a weekly release format for its original slate, which means you won't be able to binge this one like you'll probably want to.FOX The Simpsons
30 seasons, 662 episodes | IMDb: 8.7/10
One show you won't have to wait for weekly episodes to air is The Simpsons, which is making its way to Disney's streaming platform when the service launches on November 12th. Disney bought Fox earlier this year which means they're the new overlords of Springfield. It also means fans have a new venue to relive all the exploits of Homer, Bart, Lisa, and the rest of the family. For now, the show's 30 seasons will be available to stream, with newer seasons and episodes still airing on Hulu.Disney High School Musical The Series
1 season, 10 episodes
This new series which already premiere its first episode on the Disney Channel and ABC answers the question literally no one has asked: “What would happen if you mixed High School Musical with The Office?” Well, it looks like you'd get a watchable teen drama with a fresh take on a beloved millennial musical series. The show is set in the fictional East High where the original movie was filmed and follows the students putting on the first rendition of a musical based on High School Musical, in mockumentary form. It's all very meta and surprisingly catchy.Lucasfilm Star Wars The Clone Wars
5 season, 108 episodes | IMDb: 8.1/10
The animated world of Star Wars might not be for everyone, but it's one of the best ways Disney has been able to extend the lifespan of George Lucas' franchise and watching it might give you some clues as to the direction this universe will take in the future. Of course, even without the Easter egg hunting,...

6 seasons, 110 episodes | IMDb: 8.5/10
Has there ever been a sitcom as downright clever as Community? Aside from the gas leak year, Community was quicker than nearly every other comedy out there, with jokes flying fast but also taking seasons to reach a punchline. After getting caught with a phony degree, former lawyer Jeff Winger Joel McHale heads to Greendale Community College to get a legitimate degree. There he gets into increasingly hilarious hijinks with his Spanish study group. Between paintball wars, zombie outbreaks, and the increasingly ridiculous presence of Senor Chang Ken Jeong, Community is never, ever boring. Quit living in the darkest timeline and get to watching.Netflix

2 seasons, 20 episodes | IMDb: 8.4/10
Good news: Narcos is back. Even better news: Mexico is basically an entirely revamped show, which means you don't need to be familiar with past installments to enjoy the wild ride. Diego Luna plays the new big bad, a drug lord looking to expand his reach, while Michael Pena plays the fed tasked with busting his operation.

A good gangster movie must do two things: Make us want to live a life of crime and, at the same time, make us grateful we haven't indulged our dark sides like the characters on this list. Most gangster films make the criminal underworld look like a hell of a good time. There's booze, money, women, expensive cars, everything we're taught we should want, but the lavish lifestyle often comes with a price, which means a good gangster movie must also show us the downside of running a criminal empire: The violence, the bloodshed, and the very real threat of prison time. As they say, you can't have your cake and eat it too — but no one told that to the characters in these films.
Here are the 10 most enjoyable films currently streaming on Netflix.

Run Time: 209 min | IMDb: 8.7/10
Martin Scorsese delivers another cinematic triumph, this time for Netflix and with the help of some familiar faces. Robert De Niro and Al Pacino team up again for this crime drama based on actual events. De Niro plays Frank Sheeran a World War II vet who finds work as a hitman for the mob. Pacino plays notorious Teamster Jimmy Hoffa, a man who frequently found himself on the wrong side of the law and the criminals he worked with. The film charts the pair's partnership over the years while injecting some historical milestones for context. It's heavy and impressively cast and everything you'd expect a Scorsese passion-project to be.A24 A Most Violent Year 2014
Run Time: 125 min | IMDb: 7/10
Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac play a husband-wife duo caught up in the criminal underground in this darkly-lit drama. Isaac plays Abel Morales, an immigrant and aspiring business owner who finds himself the target of ruthless competitors when he takes steps to secure a facility to transport oil throughout the boroughs. Chastain plays his wife Anna, a shrewd businesswoman in her own right who comes from a mobster family. The two fights against a determined D.A. and corrupt criminals in order to secure the money they need to purchase the land, but in doing so, they become the enemy they've been fighting against. It's a heavy, morose kind of film, filled with violence and shady back-door dealings, but Chastain and Isaac bring a bit of brilliance to it all.Netflix Imperial Dreams 2014
Run Time: 87 min | IMDb: 6.8/10
