For those who don’t know what Tiger King is, firstly, why did you click to see memes that you won’t understand? And secondly, here’s a trailer that will give you a sample of just how crazy this show is.
So to summarise, there’s a guy called Exotic with a mullet and two husbands, he likes big cats and runs a park where tourists come and watch him cuddle and caress said big cats. He’s also pals with a long-haired guy who seems to think he is a doctor, has three wives – or is it four, nobody seems to know – and loads of big cats too.
Then there’s a woman called Carole Baskin, she hates how these guys keep these big cats locked up, so she rescues them and puts them in her cages instead, much to the adulation of all the people who work for her for free. Her husband disappeared, she definitely never fed him to tigers.
A slight disclaimer here – I’m only two episodes deep so I’m yet to see how it all unfolds or to figure out who the good guys are, if there are any. It’s one of those cultish true crime gigs that makes you feel like you’re living on a different planet.

I was seven and had just given a hopeless answer to my teacher's question. The whole class was watching on. "Michael" he sighed, disdain dripping from the rims of his glasses, "the way you've approached this subject"...a long pause...another sigh..."you'll never amount to anything". And he was right. I was always terrible at science. Mr Joseph was the wisest of my teachers. You can contact Mike at [email protected]Follow
