Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem And Madness

I have had Netflix for many years, but it takes time for me to watch a lot of series. Why ? Well, when you watch films and review them, it takes time to write, figure out how i want the review to look like, and of course pick out the films i will review for the month. So, when i do get some time over to watch a TV series on Netflix, i only see a couple of episodes and save the rest for later. I have seen some good ones that i could recommend, depending on what kind of TV series you enjoy. But one of them is of course Narcos, surrounding the insane story of drug lord Pablo Escobar. Narcos has been out for a while, but this is in my opinion one of the best Netflix TV series ever made, and actor Wagner Moura is brilliant as Pablo Escobar. Just the idea of how big his empire was in the 80´s, is incredible. But you also see how many people´s lives he ended in horror, with no respect and no sympathy. I also think that this TV series give you a glimpse of all the hard work that came along, to try and stop the drug lord Pablo, and all the suffering that came along with these years for everyone involved in this case. If you have not seen Narcos on Netflix, you should check it out. I don´t review TV series or documentary films on my movie review blog. I probably could have reviewed some documentary films in the past, but it just never happened. But earlier this year i was starting to hear a lot of buzz online, about an upcoming documentary mini series called Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem And Madness. When i first saw the trailer, i thought that this looks insane. Could all of this really have happened ? I never heard about Tiger King before, until i started reading some information. His real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, and he is also known as Exotic Joe. He was the owner of an animal park, who got himself into some serious trouble. I just had to see this mini series, since it looked like something in my taste. Is this mini series as good as i hoped, or is Tiger King a big disappointment ?

In Wynnewood, Oklahoma, Joe Exotic is the eccentric owner of the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park, and he has his own TV series known as Joe Exotic TV, created by producer Rick Kirkham. Joe had a lot of feud years with Carol Baskin, CEO of Big Cat Rescue in Florida. Joe is so mad at Carol that he is willing to do anything to embarrass her. But is he going too far, and don´t know when to stop ?

If you have been looking for some of the craziest American personalities in a long time, you are going to find them here in Tiger King. Joe Exotic for example, imagine a combination of Joe Dirt combined with Poison singer Bret Michaels, and you have Joe Exotic. With his blonde mullet hair, guns and tight pants, you know he would get laid at any gay party, anywhere in this world. It is quite fascinating to see that he sees himself as a good choice for a president candidate, but i guess if Trump could win, then everyone has a chance right ? You might think that Joe Exotic is the only one who is odd, but the rest of the animal parks have some of the crazy personalities as well. Just look at Bhagvan Antle, who is living with a lot of women ( almost like the Playboy Mansion, done into an animal park instead ). Every woman have her own house, clearly so he can have fun with each one of them whenever he feels like it. I will say though that he seems to know what he is doing, since everything surrounding his animal park, he has a theme that clearly makes people want to come. Who does not want to see hot women with tigers right ? And then we have Carole Baskin, the biggest enemy for Exotic Joe. At first i thought she seemed to be the most normal animal park owner, but as the documentary goes on you see some warning signals. Such as her strange music videos of a woman singing balads with tigers in the background, and the fact that a lot of people suspect her of killing her husband. Did she do it ? I think you´re gonna have to make up your own mind. There are a lot of events that you might react to, when you see the issues that all of these animal parks dealt with, but at the end of the day i have to say that Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem And Madness is one hell of a good time. It´s hard to believe all of this is true, but if it is then no reality show in the world can beat these guys. There is no doubt, Tiger King is a must see on Netflix for everyone.
