Critic Reviews for The Circle Series 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

It's disturbing, bleakly funny, dystopian... and I couldn't recommend it enough.

Sep 24, 2018 | Full Review…

The Circle [might] prove to be an intelligent take on these confusing times, shining a light on the lengths we are willing to go to to be validated, and the snap judgments we make about others.

That's The Circle generally - superior to Big Brother because it doesn't take itself too seriously. Luckily.

Sep 21, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The Circle is a brilliant idea, stupidly executed. It is a waste, and a stupid waste at that. Deep down, though, at the nub, there is something here that is close to genius.

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

It seems that Channel 4 is trying to hold a mirror - a Black Mirror, given the premise's thematic closeness to Charlie Brooker's dystopian anthology - to a society driven mad by social media. What we got was a funhouse mirror.

This reality show is giving me life at the dawn of 2020. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jan 16, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Occasionally it's amusing but mostly it's a bit sad. Each person is isolated, paranoid and bored, waiting for a message. They are rated and slated by strangers.

Sep 25, 2018 | Full Review…

I'm intrigued. It's just... do I have the patience, over three weeks, to watch eight people trying to invent eight other people when none of the 16 are, in fact, that interesting in the first place?
