The Circle on Netflix
Rating: TV-MA
Genre: Reality TV
Type: TV
Released: 2020
Seasons: 4


Contestants live in an apartment building showcasing the infamous circle on the outside. They are literal neighbors but never meet face to face. They communicate through a social media app called “The Circle.” They can create a profile as themselves or make up a fake persona to play as. They regularly rank the other players based on their impressions through social media interactions, and the top-rated players become influencers. The influencers get to block or eliminate a player until, ultimately, a winner is crowned.

Heather’s Review:

I watched season one as soon as it was released because I had watched almost everything else on Netflix. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy The Circle at all. Surprisingly, it became one of my favorite reality shows. I think the concept is genius. Michelle Buteau makes hosting a show look easy. They always seem to find people with the best personalities, and it’s difficult not to root for your favorites throughout each season. It’s probably the one Reality TV show I would go on myself.

I give The Circle on Netflix 5 out of 5 stars.
