Storyline

In a world that offers a dizzying array of amusements and entertainments, there is none quite so enduring or so universal as the circus. Now, over the course of six dramatic and mesmerizing hours, Show of Force will take us away to the circus - not just under the big top, but far beyond it: into what circus folk call "the backyard," the place where the trailers are parked and the real heart of the circus beats. With unprecedented access granted by the Big Apple Circus, the filmmaking team followed this traveling company over the course of an entire season. The series will immerse viewers in a rich collection of human stories, simultaneously compelling our fascination, and appealing to our shared humanity. Written by Anonymous

Once you get into it, you'll be hooked.
18 November 2010 | by (S. Lake Tahoe, CA) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent Documentary series following the "Big Apple Circus" & all the personalities that make a Circus. It's a bit slow the 1st couple hours as you get to know all of the people that make up the show. However once you starting learning about them, it's not the acts they do or the job they perform that makes it so interesting. You'll get to know the clown known as "Grandma" real name Barry Lubin, & some of the trials he has to go through. You also get to know the man that created the "Big Apple Circus" & get to see him as he slowly passes the torch of the show to others. I don't want to give anything away because it's an excellent journey that you don't want to end.
