I'm not sure why prior reviewers gave this series such a low score, but I think it's because this is more of a documentary/reality-style series that delves into the personal side of circus performing more than it does the actual performance. That said, there's lots of great footage of various acts which is both impressive and fun to watch. This is NOT the kind of series you'd watch with your kids, but it IS the kind of series you can enjoy watching if you're someone who likes to take a peek behind the scenes. The Special Features amount to >1 hr. of character profiles, behind-the-scenes footage and more.
