Review: AMC's 'Freakshow' a disturbing look into one man's pursuit
The trouble with freak shows is never the people who actually comprise them. The "giants" and midgets, the consumers of sword and flame, the overly hirsute, these are people called upon by nature or spirit to showcase the physical limits of human experience, and audiences typically view them with admiration or pity.
