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

PURE Magic.
3 February 2012 | by (California, United States) – See all my reviews

I found this via Netflix and watched it in one unemployed day of glory. It was a spectacular journey, one that I did NOT want to end. I can honestly say this is the best thing I have ever seen from PBS and I sorely wish they would do more seasons, or even do this type of show with a different subject. I love the multiple characters who are allowed to really develop and draw your empathy over the course of the (relatively) short series. But, these aren't just characters, they are real people who happen to work in the circus. Some of them love it, some of them leave it, but the magic of Circus lies in that whether a character is talking about a tragedy or a success, in the ring or out, that the show makes you feel like a kid again and truly appreciate the amazing things people can do.
