Description: "An accidental killing leads a man down a dark hole of intrigue and murder. Just as he finds love and freedom, one phone call brings back the nightmare."

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: N/A

What critics said: "Genre fans will be well-served here, and while eight episodes seem like one or two too many, the time will fly by and The Innocent will almost certainly be another hit." — Ready Steady Cut (season one)

Description: "A working-class Black family in Indiana strives for a better life and a happy home while juggling everyday struggles in this comedy series."

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 50%

What critics said: "Save for one noteworthy update to the Black family sitcoms of yore, Sykes and her co-creator Regina Y. Hicks' largely listless series would've fit right into the network TV comedy landscape 20 years ago." — Hollywood Reporter (season one)

7. "The Circle" (Netflix original, 2020-present)

Description: "Status and strategy collide in this social experiment and competition show where online players flirt, befriend and catfish their way toward $100,000."

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 81%

What critics said: "In a world where social media is an ever-present utility, we all make similar decisions daily, just without the promise of $100,000. THE CIRCLE may be a game show, but it's also a microcosm of society as a whole." — The Spool (season two)

6. "Cocomelon" (YouTube, 2019-present)

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 86%

What critics said: "It's a beautifully made show, with the best visual touch beyond the effects being the costumes designed by Wendy Partridge, which lean heavily on Russian influences to make this world feel distinct and special from other fantasy tales." — Collider (season one)

4. "StartUp" (Crackle, 2016-2018)

Description: "Iconic Mexican-American performer Selena rises to fame as she and her family make sacrifices in order to achieve their lifelong dreams."

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 26%

What critics said: "Selena's music is still vibrant and real, the least a whole series could do is truly explore the person behind the melodies." — Entertainment Voice (season two)

2. "The Sons of Sam: A Descent into Darkness" (Netflix original, 2021)

Description: "The Son of Sam case grew into a lifelong obsession for journalist Maury Terry, who became convinced that the murders were linked to a satanic cult."

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 44%

What critics said: "Unfortunately, the fact that these are all just theories means that The Sons of Sam feels, by the end of its four-hour running time, extravagantly unnecessary." — Variety

1. "Jupiter's Legacy" (Netflix original, 2021-present)

Description: "They're the first generation of superheroes. But as they pass the torch to their children, tensions are rising — and the old rules no longer apply."

Rotten Tomatoes critic score: 39%

What critics said: "Despite employing a conceit that is by now the clone of a clone's corpse, plenty of folks will ignore that base note's stank and see it through. It's only eight episodes, right?" — Salon
