Title: Tiger King
Post by: El Misfit on April 14, 2020, 02:48:10 PM
So has anyone watched this? I did and hoo boy is it insane. We joke about Florida Man in the Weird News topic but holy s**t the three tiger curators are Florida Man, despite the two guys not being in Florida and the lady being Florida Woman. What are your thoughts if you've seen this? Here's mine:
-All of the curators should be arrested. Carole Baskin for basically having a company that hires only volunteers that goes through months of work with no pay; Doc Antle for having a grooming cult; Jeff Lowe being a con man.
-Most of Joe Exotic's employees really did care about the tigers and wanted to raise them.
-Carole Baskin did have a hand in her ex husband's disappearance, with help with her brother that was on the police force.

When I watched it I thought I don't think there is a single main character I think is a decent human being on this show. Some of the trainers seemed ok, but I don't think I'd take the time to spit on most people in this show if they were on fire.

Oh yea this was nuts. My wife and I were wondering what all the fuss was about when we saw everyone raving about it on Facebook. We started watching the first episode thinking "If it's stupid, we'll just bail out," and we ended up burning thru the entire show in one day!
I understand that a competing pseudo-sequel series is already in the works at another network (not Netflix) that will focus on Carole Baskin and the mysterious disappearance of her husband (the one who was supposedly fed to tigers).

I saw it too.   Like others have said, just when you think it can't get any nuttier, they throw another little twist or wrinkle in.  The truth really can be stranger than fiction.

I also have to say I got really excited when Kristi said she wanted to watch a show called Tiger King, and then was really disappointed when it turned out not to be about WW2 tanks.
