    Yes, you just can't make this stuff up. It's one of those that you just can't turn away from.

    If you like Tiger King, make sure to check out Dancin' Outlaw and the Wonderful Whites of West Virginia. Some eerily similar themes...

    Me and Mrs. Surprise have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. We've got three more to watch. While I'm watching, I'm like, are there really people like this???

    I saw someone lost online,that if 2020 was a person, it would look like Joe Exotic, the Tiger King.

    As an infrequent Off-Topic visitor; my thoughts exactly when I opened the thread. Disappointing initially, but maybe Iíll like this Netflix series.

    Finished it this morning.

    The weirdness builds in every episode. Just when you think it couldn't be more strange, it is.

    What an entertaining, despicable, deluded bunch of characters.

    Oh my goodness. We just finished episode 2 (Carole did it, definitely). Biology teaches us about the planet's rich biodiversity but you could spend a lifetime studying all the odd birds in our own species.

    My wife and I are enjoying going around the house and pointing out the things that are and are not the property of Joe Exotic.

    wow...just watched the first 2...amazing...

    the real star is rick kirkham, who has woven this into one of the most elaborate dumpster fires ever on TV...

    these characters are as rich as any...unbelievable...

    I went into Tiger King expecting to see a dumpster fire and hoping that Florida wouldn't be involved. Not only did it feature Florida, a good portion of it takes place in the county I call home.

    No, I actually hadn't. I had heard the name Big Cat Rescue, which according to google maps is 34 minutes from where I live in Hillsborough County, but I hadn't heard anything about the scandals and accusations associated with the facility and its owners. Carole Baskin's husband went "missing" in August of 1997; my family didn't start moving to the area until the end of my first semester at Duke( fall of 98) and I didn't join them until the end of the summer in 1999. I guess by then, the incident wasn't being covered regularly on the local news.

    Well just be careful where you go. That was the weirdest pack of characters I think I've ever seen, and honest to goodness, Carol Baskin scares me more than the rest of them. I wouldn't want to be anywhere close to her.

    It didn't matter whether she was talking about her love of cats, the death threats against her, being raped at knifepoint as a child, or just saying, "No my goodness, I didn't feed my husband to the tigers" -- She always had the same angelic, peaceful grin on her face. She is NOT normal.

    But then I'm thinking being "not normal" was a requirement for getting involved in all that. What a strange, strange bunch of people.

    I'm only 2 episodes in and am in the camp of she didn't kill her husband. Curious to see how this plays out.

    I have a feeling most of them have parted ways with truth and reality.
