    Maybe this has been lost in all the noise lately, but, surely, I can't be the only one watching this?

    It starts at utterly crazy and then just gets utterly batshyte. How did this all happen for real? How do these nutters exist?

    Just finished episode 3. From ep 1 I was looking at them as mad but they're all cute fookers. The end of ep 2 was a holy crap this can't be real moment.

    Have to say I'm enjoying it but I'd hate to have to deal with any of the characters in that show in any way.

    Also lots of comments in the Netflix thread, think it's in the film forum.

    Best documentary series I've ever seen. Amazing. Like heroin for the eyes.

    I watched it on Wednesday, as it popped up as a suggestion on Netflix. Although I enjoyed the first episode, I considered not continuing, as I thought they'd just milk it. So happy, I continued watching, as episode 1 is just the tip of the iceberg. The amount of stuff that happens after that! One of the best things I've ever seen.

    I was a bit, meh, after the first episode, but, like you said, it gets so crazy. That funeral speech was one of the most WTF moments of all time.

    If it was a fictional show for tv , you'd think the writers were on some fairly strong mind altering drugs when they were writing it !

    Absolutely crazy , twists and turns , with an unforgettable soundtrack too :D

    Wouldn’t that take a few of the others to go down first? I don’t think there’s been any further arrests since filming ended and the zoo and Antle’s Safari Park are still open. Unless there’s a trial or something else big like that, what would season 2 be about?

    Jeff Lowe would probably provide plenty of material for a new season also Joe Exotic is filing a $94million law suit against Lowe and the US Fish and Wildlife Service

    Also

    Speaking to EW, one of the film’s directors Rebecca Chaiklin says Tiger King Season 2 could absolutely happen:

    “To be continued,” she says after a long pause. “I mean, yes we have a crazy amount of footage and it’s a story that’s still unfolding. We’re not sure yet, but there could be a follow-up on this story because there’s a lot that’s still unfolding in it, and it’ll be just as dramatic and just as colorful as what has unfolded these past few years.”

    Also from that article, Dax Shepard a great call to play Joe

    But even if Tiger King Season 2 doesn’t happen, there will be more Joe Exotic on the small screen. Before the Netflix show premiered, a TV series adaptation of the podcast Joe Exotic was announced with Kate McKinnon playing the role fo Carole Baskin, from the producers of the TV series adaptation of the podcast Dirty John. No word on how soon that show might happen, or who’ll play Joe Exotic (it’s gotta be Dax Shepard right?)

    What do I watch after this?


  • Registered Users Posts: 495 ✭✭ Etc


    Started watching this last night, finished episode 3 earlier today, it's brilliant, you just couldn't make this stuff up, anyone called Joe Exotic with a mullet like his deserves a Netflix series !

    Louis Theroux did a 2012 documentary that features Joe, it’s on Netflix,
    also Rick Kirkham has a self made documentary TV Junkie on his You Tube channel...or you could watch it all again, I’m sure I didn’t fully process all the crazy first time watching, it came so hard and fast, so that’s what I’m gonna do.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,687 ✭✭✭✭ jack presley


    I bet we'll be seeing plenty of Joe Exotic costumes this Halloween.


  • Registered Users Posts: 14,465 ✭✭✭✭ Seve OB


    i haven't watched it yet but saw the ads on netflix for it. was thinking i was going mad because i was sure i'd seen it before.... but its only new!!!

    remembered a few things like he was a gay and living with a couple of lads and baby tigers and cross bred a lion and tiger..... a liger!

    then it twigged with me!!! weird people liker him are alway on a Louis Theroux show!!!!


    i'm gonna watch it soon though


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,687 ✭✭✭✭ jack presley


    The funniest/most worrying thing in the whole series for me was that he got 19% in the Governor elections. That's nearly one in every 5 adults in Oklahoma that voted, voted for him to be their Governor.
