Tiger King on Netflix

Post by Bram » Sun Mar 22, 2020 7:17 pm



A gay, mulleted, cowboy who raises tigers, releases music videos, and plots a murder.

Thank you Netflix.

Haven't watched it yet, but cannot imagine it NOT being entertaining.

His husband is a looker...if you like looking at missing teeth.

Updated after watching second episode, the guy's second husband is a relative looker. First husband seems OK with it all.

Series does a great job of slowly unleashing the information. Definitely leaves me wondering what sort of weird shit is coming in episode 3.

In case you don't have Netflix.

Not horrible for a country singer.

Supposedly, songwriters and vocal performers Danny Clinton and Vince Johnson make up the voice of the songs in the music videos. In the credits of the documentary series, both names are credited under archival footage. Exotic met the duo when they were writing songs on commission. Clinton and Johnson worked with Exotic for the promise of exposure from his green-lit reality show that never happened, though Exotic did have a YouTube series, Joe Exotic TV.

Johnson and Clinton claim that they had no indication that Exotic would be lip-syncing and pretending to sing their songs.

"We all get what’s coming to us in the end, be it good or bad. Joe, all in all, was likable,” Johnson tells Vanity Fair. "Most people just bore the hell out of me. They have the personality of a lobster. He’s a seedy shyster, but he’s got personality."

I was wondering/assuming he was Milli-Vanilli-ing it.

"Here Kitty Kitty" is a decent song.

One episode in and Chris Rock's great line-- 'I'm not saying he shoulda killed her, but I understand'-- comes to mind.

More Carole Baskin is coming our way.
Variety wrote: ID claimed the show will focus on “the investigation you didn’t get to see, revealing the secrets only Joe knows, the exclusive footage that has never been shown and the search to answer the one question every person in America is asking themselves right now: although she’s denied it, is Carole Baskin responsible for the disappearance of her husband, Don Lewis?”

The ID series will be told from Joe Exotic’s perspective, as it asks questions such as whether Baskin orchestrated Lewis’ disappearance to take control of his estate. “No one seems to be talking — except for one man — and that man is the center of ID’s upcoming investigative series,” the network said.

I watched one episode and tapped out. I'm from the South, so I feel like I know half of these people and I'm related to the rest.

Episode 1 is a bit slow, but 2-4 constantly ratchets up the insanity. Give it another 10 minutes.

The 'bonus' episode is a series of fanboy podcast style interviews with members of Joe Exotic's crew, only with higher production values. Meh.

Jeff Lowe decided to do a "ask me anything" on Reddit:

My favorite questions

"Why do you dress like Hot Topic and Affliction had a baby with fetal alcohol syndrome?"

and

"Hey Jeff, when you bang your babysitter while your wife nurses your new-born baby, will you think of this comment? Thanks Jeff."

Another asked if he had found any "weird shit" about Joe Exotic since his incarceration; Lowe claimed he had found a flash drive showing "Joe and Finley... were having sexual relations with animals in the park."

I think Jeff Lowe is supremely untrustworthy and the "having sex with zoo animals claim" I can't lend any credit to.

I'm curious if he'll get jail time, it certainly seems like him and his assistant pulled a set-up on the mullet man.

You would think that would be cause for a libel lawsuit if not true.
