The Circle: Episode Discussion (Spoilers)

Just watched the first episode on Netflix and I'm already loving it. I know there is already a UK version and usually the UK shows do it better so I'll prob give them a shot after I finish the US version.

 

Here's a summary of the format if anybody is interested:

"The contestants, or "players", all move into an apartment building. However, the contestants will never meet face-to-face during the course of the competition, as they will each live in their own individual apartment. They will communicate solely using their profiles on a specially-designed social media app, giving them the ability to portray themselves in any way they choose.

Throughout the series, the contestants will "rate" one another from first to last place. At the end of the ratings, their average ratings are revealed to one another from highest to lowest. Normally, the two highest rated players become "influencers", while the remaining players will be at risk of being "blocked" by the influencers. However, occasionally there may be a twist to the blocking process – varying from the lowest rating players being instantly blocked, the identity of the influencers being a secret, or multiple players being blocked at one time. Blocked players are eliminated from the game, but are given the opportunity to meet one player still in the game in-person. Then, the day after a blocking, a video message is shown to the remaining players to reveal if they were real or fake.

During the final, the contestants rate each other one final time, where the highest rated player wins the game and $100,000."

Love the UK version. Saw both seasons and they were really good. Ill check out this version soon

i actually really like everyone on the cast! im on episode two and so far "shooby" and karen. also really like antonio but i don't see him winning hes playing real hard 

I just finished the first 4 episodes and I'm sad I have to wait for next week to continue watching more. Lol. This show is so goood. I'm going to binge watch the UK version now. I'm happy Netflix got to stream this and hope they get to stream more reality competition shows in the future.

i think i just liked antonio in the first episode bc of the edit., now on episode 3 and i cannot stand him. i gotta find the UK version this show is a lot more entertaining than i thought!

I’m watching episode 1 now, and liking it.

BB should take some notes with this casting though

 

  • SPOILERS BEYOND THIS POINT. THIS THREAD CONTAINS EPISODE DISCUSSIONS WHICH INCLUDE SPOILERS

 

 

I only really like Sammie and the chick playing as Mercedeze. Hopefully the rest pick it up. I’m liking it as a whole tho. 

Spoiler:

 

 

do they end up bringing in another girl? I keep seeing some other chick’s name in relation to this show on twitter.

finished all the episodes they brought in 2 people it looks like. we didnt really get to meet the guy he seems even cockier than antonio, the girl seems a little crazy but is likeable enough. she seems like she craves attention i cant tell if shes genuine or not but she was a foster kid and i know how that can really mess with people sometimes.  i love seeing everyone interact with eachother i cant wait for next weeks episode!

Queen Day is a fan of this so ima watch it too.

Anyone who watches Reality TV competition shows often(probably most of the people on this sub) would enjoy this. I love it, started watching the UK Version after i finished the first 4

Sammie and Shooby are my top 2. Really good cast overall though. Everyone brings something to the table

I expect this to be cancel si ce Netflix loves canceling shows acter their first season. Netflix is barely advertising it.

Miranda and Karyn are my faves so far! Sammie's okay after watching all the episodes and Chris is charismatic and fun. Everybody else is meh. 

Antonio fine as hell and needs to be on my screen again. Blum 3

I saw it in my recommends and thought it was that movie with Emma Watson. and Tom Hanks, so I just skipped over it. 

Might actually check it out as it seems like an interesting premise.

it wasn’t even in the originals section for me. I had to search it to even watch it.

I'm kind of getting a Solitary vibe with the isolation and cast members thinking out loud to provide narration. 

It's Big Brother meets Solitary with a Catfish vibe and a modern spin. Not hooked yet, but I'll definitely watch another episode. 

 

I actually know Chris, he is so damn crazy.

Welp, watched all 4 lol. Totally got sucked in. Now I have to wait until next week to watch more!

I though I was going to hate this show but I like it. I binge watched all 4 episodes yesterday. 

This show is so cute, Antonio fine *** imma have to get that social.I'm trying to understand what constitutes as good game? Like why aren't they voting out the people that every one likes lmaoo 

Faves are Sammie, Mercedes, Shubham. Honestly think the boy playing as Rebekah is doing a lot better than when he first started.

yesss Solitary I completely got those vibes 

Another thing, while I live for Sammie as she's one of my faves I don't like how intentionally dense she was being about Alana's "Skinny Queens" chat name. Like girl you're apart of the rainbow you know what the white girls mean when they say that lmao

well it's not really white girls per se but it's just a regular term of endearment. Like people use it on twitter all the time. I'm pretty sure it started with Mariah Carey tbh lmao

ooooh had zero idea that was something. I took that to face value. lol. whoops. 

I'm rooting for Rebecca that shit has me dying how they haven't figured them out as a catfish after obliviously asking if Chris was cute. We could have done without the new girl. I wish they would add someone who would start shit and confrontations.

yeah I'm not seeing the purpose of Miranda, they could have done without 1 for 1 replacing people, and just left it at a twist with a large group of them all at once.

agree with Rebecca, wasn't feeling him at first because I thought he was a bad player but he's doing so much better and is honestly a top player rn 

I do think the guy coming in next week is going to be a messy one based on that little clip we saw

I finally watched... my questions 

1. how was Alana so dumb to put her modeling stuff in her bio.... like you really don't think you will be a target.  

2. How does the show end? Like people leave they bring new people in so how does it end?
