THE CIRCLE – Credit score: Netflix
Netflix’s new actuality present The Circle is a mixture of social media, Large Brother, Black Mirror and that wacky Peloton business. Watch the trailer for the brand new Netflix unique sequence.
Netflix simply dropped the trailer for The Circle, a brand new Netflix unique actuality present coming to the streaming service on New 12 months’s Day (Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020). Many who’ve seen the trailer are confused about what truly occurs, and others are horrified concerning the look of this present.
I fall into each classes. I’ve seen the trailer thrice and don’t perceive the premise in any respect. In response to a report from Individuals, this sequence is predicated on a UK sequence of the identical title. The contestants all reside in the identical house constructing in numerous residences, and so they solely work together with one another by way of a social media app.
They’re taking part in for $100Okay. It’s unclear, nonetheless, how one wins the sport, however it seems that the contestants rank the others by reputation. The least common contestants, at completely different factors, might be eradicated, in line with the report.
Though the concept seems like one thing Charlie Kelly got here up with to trick the Waitress, it makes just a little extra sense when defined.
The premise undoubtedly doesn’t come throughout within the trailer, which you’ll be able to see beneath. As a substitute, it appears to be like like an episode of Large Brother performed out inside a Black Mirror episode. And, as with the spouse within the Peleton business, it’s not totally clear that these contestants are prepared contributors. It doesn’t seem that they’ll discuss to anybody in individual, and it’s additionally unclear in the event that they ever get to depart their residences.
I’ve many questions that I’ve no option to tune in and watch the episode on Jan. 1. Try the trailer beneath!
Episodes of the sequence might be launched on Netflix over a three-week span.
I’m not totally satisfied this present isn’t simply an episode of Black Mirror. Netflix normally releases one thing Black Mirror-associated round Christmas. Final yr, we received to see Black Mirror: Bandersnatch. Possibly that is what Netflix has deliberate for us?
Watch The Circle when it hits Netflix on Wednesday, Jan. 1!
