Mensagem: 

Not aware of any distinctive idiomatic significance of this expression

 

Figurative suggestions:

 

· a predator circling its prey, awaiting the right moment
· circling an issue: avoiding addressing it, hesitating, not approaching it directly

 

Does the content of the show deal with crop circles, round objects in one form or other, etc?

 

Is the title a play on words relating to the subject of the show / episode?
