Who's Watched Tiger King?

Ask a Question

Has anyone watched this on Netflix? Just binge watched the lot in 2 days and I can’t believe how crazy everyone on it is! The only creatures that seemed tame were the animals

I wasn’t expecting much from it, as it’s obvious which direction it was heading, but I quite enjoyed it

I have never even heard of it. I've only heard of the Lion King. 🤷

Lol this one certainly won’t leave a warm and fuzzy feeling inside - more like an OTT tv soap, like Dallas

I found it very messed up to be honest but very gripping watch in all in one day

It was, and very disturbing too. I did some reading up on the people and they all had colourful histories. Guess that’s why Netflix took it up

I've only watched the first 10 min of episode 1, so I haven't got into the craziness yet. But, I do intend to watch the rest. Although, from the little I've seen there should be much tighter controls (or a ban) in the US on private citizens keeping exotic animals

Yes it’s alarming what they are permitted to do out there. A lot of hunters are American and pay loads to go trigger happy - it’s like you give a man a gun, and now he thinks he’s a god

... I'm currently watching episode 5. Just about everyone in this show comes across as an eccentric narcissist. They are accused of doing lots of really dubious things. None of them appear to be fit to look after any kind of animal.

ACR yes they all seem to be megalomaniacs. I guess if you keep wild animals, it makes you feel as if you’re a god...not that any of them are really in control

it was definitely a show full of crazy people - almost to say that people who are heavily involved with animals have a completely different mindset. Definitely need more controls

Indeed. It got me wondering why extreme animal lovers can have so much hate for mankind...maybe they don’t realise they’re human

I watched the first episode because there was so many discussions about it. I kept willing it to end so won't be a regular.

I am thinking of watching this next as I finished Ozark last night. I watched a one off documentary which is just over an hour and a half called Three Identical Strangers, and it was defo worth a watch!

Ah is that about the guys in America who were triplets but separated at birth? And then they randomly found each other? That was very good, but sad also

hspexy yes that’s the one, yes very sad but defo worth watching. I have started watching TI get along and pretty hooked at the moment! I follow Kody Antle on tik tok the son of Doc Angel who always uploads footage of the animals at Myrtle Beach Safari, they do not look abused to me!!

Watched it over the weekend too and it's pretty crazy.

They all seem as bad as each other, hypocritical.

Joe's music videos were pretty funny though.

I binge watched it too,..I remembered Louis Theroux interviewing the Tiger King years ago,I didn't realise he was imprisoned.

Very sad existence for all the animals,I really don't understand how laws don't protect these exotic animals in america,exploitation and greed.I think this programme offered an insight into this corrupt business and needs to be shut down.

Nope and I don’t plan to. Iv seen all of the memes the shows made but honestly it doesn’t interest me like 90% of shows theses day’s. They just seem to be s***ing out anything theses days for a quick 10 mins of fame same as most movies theses days. Most of it is just over rated bulls**t
