We won’t blame you if you have given into the craze of the viral Netflix show Tiger King. And if you haven’t here’s your warning that it’s pretty wild, and towards the end of the 7-part docuseries, the dive into Joe Exotic’s life becomes quite dark too.
Prime lockdown entertainment
It’s almost as if Netflix knew we would be going through a 21 day lockdown period. The timing of this show releasing is uncanny. It is the perfect combination of boredom and reality TV insanity. The show has a whole host of wacky characters and has led to the creation of hoards of memes. These memes feature Joe Exotic, his arch-nemesis Carole Baskin, Exotic’s many husbands, fellow zookeeper Bhagavan ‘Doc’ Antle, business ‘partner’ Jeff Lowe and even Exotic’s barely-hanging-on eyebrow ring.
Exotic — the 57-year-old, mullet-sporting, gun-wielding zookeeper (who is now a convicted felon) has become the topic of most internet conversation. The limited series is currently the most-streamed show in America, and probably in other countries too as we all settle into our new quarantined routines.
If the animal-rights feuds, missing teeth and limbs and bizarre opinions weren’t enough to get you hooked, there’s also a whole host of other controversial topics discussed too. Ranging from Hollywood, polygamy, an alleged murder cover-up, two political campaigns, country music and to a whole lot of sequins. Exotic makes his own music videos and we concede that they are indeed something. His songs are at some times like journal entries and at other times they are diss-tracks. The most notable of those being his song in which he accuses Carole Baskin of feeding her husband to the tigers. Yes, seriously…
