The Circle

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Season Premiere
Each season of The Circle has its calling card. Whether you've watched the vicious backstabbing in the U.K version, the catfish-hunting season 1 of the U.S. Circle, or the frankly all-too-sweet Brazil season, no one can guess how players will strategize until the first message is sent. On season two with the U.S. contestants, players quickly choose sides in a war between loyalty and strategy. The Circle also adds in a sprinkle of spontaneity by bringing NYSNC's Lance Bass into the mix, leaving us wondering which eliminated contestant will go meet the boy-bander first. —Omar Sanchez

Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Series Debut
While she might not have known it as she was living through it, Corinne Foxx's childhood was destined to be a future TV show. Inspired by her relationship with her multi-hyphenate father, Jamie Foxx, the new, aptly titled Netflix sitcom Dad Stop Embarrassing Me! stars Jamie as Brian, the owner of a cosmetic company and single father to Sasha (Kyla-Drew), as well as a slew of other characters — akin to his In Living Color days. "We didn't want him to play himself, and what's more embarrassing than your dad doing makeup all the time?" jokes Corinne, 27, who opted to stay behind the camera as an executive producer, believing the "prime conflict" comes in the teenage years. "Brian really wants to understand [Sasha] so badly and be there for her — and he maybe goes to extreme lengths to do so." —Derek Lawrence
