Tiger King is just the gift that keeps on giving, especially during these quarantined times. Watching the seven-episode Netflix series gave us all a lot to think about and plenty to say. And, the content just kept on coming. Pretty much everyone who took part in the docuseries has done interviews and made statements about the dramatic storylines (i.e. the multiple murder allegations). Even, SPOILER ALERT: Joe Exotic has communicated his opinions even though he’s locked up in prison.
With Joe Exotic put away, that’s the end of Tiger King, right? Nope, not at all. Aside from the news stories that roll out every day, there’s also a scripted version of Tiger King in the works. But, wait. There is more though. There is actually one more episode of Tiger King headed your way. Very soon too.
Tiger King is the gift that keeps on giving. Usually when a show is over, we have covered all the bases and there is only so much we can say. But not Tiger King. Every day, more and more comes out. A lot of that is due to Carole Baskin and all the wild accusations that she killed her former husband, Don Lewis. The docuseries certainly covered it but since it’s been over, seems like we are just getting started.
Carole maintains her innocence and vehemently denies she had anything to do with Don’s death. So does her current husband, Howard Baskin. But they seem to be the only ones that are claiming her innocence. At this point, it’s hard to ignore all the stories coming out against her.
Do you miss Love is Blind? I definitely had a hangover from watching so many episodes in a row. But quarantine left me no other option but to get sucked in. With that said, I was pretty invested and felt like it was an enjoyable show. I even find myself following up on how all the couples are doing, as they are giving us plenty of content lately. It’s even been renewed for a second and third season.
Aside from Love is Blind, I have been a pretty big Netflix fan in general. Tiger King rocked my world, y’all. I am still reeling from it. But Netflix is going back to the dating show formula and is working on a new show that’s got quite the interesting premise.
If you didn’t watch Tiger King, I want to know what you’ve been watching in quarantine. Even OJ Simpson is sharing his two cents on Tiger King.
Specifically, he has shared his thoughts about whether or not Carole Baskin killed her second husband Don Lewis. The irony in OJ giving his analysis on this topic is not lost on me. Not at all.
We can’t cover every news story ourselves. Fortunately, there are a lot of great sources for reality TV news and gossip. Check out these links from some of our favorite sites in the April 5 edition of Sunday Morning Tea.
Another day, another pop culture tie-in to the Netflix show Tiger King. Recently, a photo resurfaced on Doc Antle’s Instagram account featuring Southern Charm cast member Naomie Olindo and her man Metul Shah.
The photo is from June 2019, long before Tiger King came into my life. Nevertheless, the couple still got a lot of flack for visiting the safari in Myrtle Beach.
There are lessons to be learned from Tiger King and the brief explosive reign of Joe Exotic. Live by the code of the jungle, metaphorically die by it too. In the series finale Joe goes down for orchestrating a murder for hire plot to once and for all stop Carole Baskin from stealing his zoo. The zoo Joe does not in fact even own anymore.
Joe caged wild animals and took away their freedoms and finds himself in a cage after being nabbed by the FEDS on what appears to be some trumped up charges. Working behind his back to seize the zoo was a collection of barely contained beasts: Carole Fucking Baskin, Jeff Lowe, and Joe’s former friend “businessman,” James Garretson.
There is no more humanity left in Joe Exotic, as he is completely ruled by his animal instincts to self-preserve.
As Russell Crowe‘s Gladiator once said, “Are you not entertained?” That’s not even an option when it comes to Tiger King (of course you’re entertained, that’s why you’re reading a recap about the show!). It’s the most buzzed-about series to hit Netflix in quite a while. It’s our country’s favorite guilty-pleasure and diversion during these crazy times.
As we roll into Episode 6, the penultimate episode leading into the Episode 7 Series Finale, the murder-for-hire plot finally thickens. Up until now, we’ve been dropped into a world full of tigers, ex-cons, low-lives, zoos and eccentric animal trainers, where we’ve been given twist after unbelievable twist (Joe Exotic had not one but two husbands, who turn out to not even be gay???). Finally, we get to the real “true crime” chapter in the Joe Exotic story. We figure out just why he’s been giving phone interviews from inside Oklahoma’s Grady County Jail.
Just when you think things couldn’t get any weirder, Tiger King kicks into another gear. If you’ve already seen Tiger King Episode 6, you won’t mind reading on, But, if you haven’t and don’t want to be spoiled, you may want to turn back.
