"The GOAT" — Available now on Prime Video

The intrigue: Fourteen reality stars from franchises including "Real Housewives," "The Bachelor," "Love Is Blind," "RuPaul's Drag Race" and "Survivor" compete for $200K.

My thought bubble: Daniel Tosh is a riot as host of this show that has too many characters to take itself too seriously.

"Black Twitter: A People's History" — Available now on Hulu

State of play: This docuseries chronicles the history of "Black Twitter" and the major players and events that shaped its impact on culture and politics.

What they're saying: "It was really humbling to [realize the documentary] isn't just for the people that were there. It's for people that weren't there, across all cultures and across the planet," director Prentice Penny told Axios.

"Doctor Who" — Available Friday on Disney+

Driving the news: Rwandan actor Ncuti Gatwa ("Sex Education") is the first Black and openly queer man to play the titular character since the show's premiere in 1963.

Behind the scenes: This season is being rebranded as "season 1," but it will technically be the 40th overall.
